Final Word I look at the qualifications of this man, and I have a high degree of confidence. I've written about influential people like Joe Rogan, podcaster, and Aaron Rodgers, quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, who ignore expert advice by not getting vaccinated and promoting unrecommended treatments such as ivermectin. I find it unfortunate these people hold sway over the public, spreading misinformation and delaying getting this public health crisis under control.

This interview conducted on December 9, 2021, gives me hope that we will get out of this mess.

my blog: Ivermectin: I'm not taking medical advice from Joe Rogan.
From the outset of the pandemic, the supposed antiviral properties of the antiparasitic drug ivermectin has been bandied about left, right, and center. Even if expert sources of information like the CDC and the FDA said not to use it, people, especially those on the right led by Fox News, kept pushing ivermectin “propaganda”. Has anybody read the science, and if they did, did they understand what they were looking at?

my blog: Aaron Rodgers: I’m disappointed but I’m not surprised.
The stink is about Aaron Rodgers (b 1983), quarterback for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL). Before I get into my rant, a little background for those not in the know.
