Quote from: Nik Bethune on March 08, 2020, 07:07:36 PMNo one ever said snake oil didn't sell. Personally, my preparations for the virus are largely hoarding related. Laugh if you want but I'm going to be the pudding cup king of our post-apocalyptic wasteland.
Quote from: Nik Bethune on March 08, 2020, 07:21:37 PMConsuming the things you're hoarding is entry level piker mentality.These are commodities to be bartered with. Mainly for fuel from Lord Humungous, then use the leftover for whoever corners the market in human trafficking to put together a post-apocalyptic version of the Leafs. My hunch is I can get Nylander for two snack-pack Butterscotch, Ceci for a half empty store brand fat free chocolate.
Quote from: Highlander on March 08, 2020, 01:51:17 PMI really think everyone here has the best intentions and no one should be ridiculed for trying to help. We are all going through this together. This virus is the great leveller, it doesn't matter what your background or social status is, its going to touch rich and poor all the same. If one of us recommends Vitamin C, then this is good, do you own due diligence before you act (or ridicule). It only makes sense to take a great Vitamin C supplement, as it is proven to bolster immune systems. When I suggest NAC, instead of ridicule, look at it, do your due diligence and make your own informed decisions. I am open to all suggestions, as I will investigate all claims and make my own decisions. Let's help each other instead of playing games of one-upmanship.
Quote from: Nik Bethune on March 09, 2020, 09:36:21 AMI don't think anyone would care if someone came in here and said "I eat 5 bananas a day and I feel great! I think they're the key to good health" because that sort of thing is easy enough to take or leave. I think what rubs some people the wrong way is trying to add the veneer of authority to it with second hand medical endorsements or trying to ascribe specific health benefits to products without medical education or evidence. Like, as a for instance, I've heard lots of people say that taking vitamin supplements essentially does nothing for you that a balanced diet with a lot of nutrient rich food wouldn't already do. Despite that, because I was raised in kind of a hippy-ish household, I take a daily multi-vitamin. I like taking something that I at least think may help with my health.But I'd never say, you know, I'm in pretty good health generally so the vitamin must be working or, you know, that it healed me of a specific condition because I don't have the first idea if that's true or not.
Quote from: princedpw on March 09, 2020, 02:16:45 AMOrdinary people do not need masks and should not be buying masks. Doing so will deplete the supply of masks, which are needed by healthcare professionals.https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/29/health/coronavirus-n95-face-masks.htmlIn general, if someone is promulgating incorrect medical information, it is important to speak up and let people know it is incorrect. Incorrect information about medicine leads to things like people not getting vaccinated and then getting the flu or measles and dying. Of course, when correcting misinformation, we don't have to be a$$holes.

Your body needs a certain amount; after that, you're literally pissing money down the drain.What about silver? That'll help right?
