    off-topic Ivermectin

    One of the greatest misconceptions about vaccines is that they get you infected with what they protect you from. Lets learn some more great science news:     https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/flu/in-depth/flu-shots/art-20048000 Can the vaccine give me the flu or other respiratory...

    off-topic Ivermectin

    This is an interesting post, in so far as you are against pharmaceuticals (drugs, pills, etc) and their companies, but would prefer to take drugs over educating your own immune system from time to time.   Totally contradicting yourself here.   Vaccines just teach our immune systems how to fight.

    off-topic Ivermectin

    Agreed there needs to be a therapeutic, and I too am hopeful that this or something else that requires few resources will become efficient. Agreed on the whole capitalism thing as well...     The issue we are seeing, repeatedly, are charlatans and snake-oil peddlers taking inconclusive data and...

    off-topic Ivermectin

    I know, and I hold so much sadness for your people. This means vaccines will not be efficient in your country. Everybody needs to be on board.     A perspective from a far off place, as sad as it is - I pray our borders stay closed to America. Breaks my heart, I have family with you folks down...

    off-topic Ivermectin

    Ok, lets do a little thought experiment.     Sars kills unhealthy, older people, mostly, for now. We can all agree that if you have a few significant conditions you're prospects diminish quickly. No numbers here just generalization.   Fair?     Lets look at a company like Pfizer (who took no US...

    off-topic Ivermectin

    Hes asking to prescribe ivermectin which even at extremely high doses cannot physically get to the levels needed to affect sars cov 2 ... he knows this, it's been out a while.   Hes also downplaying vaccines publicly and calling them out as money grabs which is insanity, literally.

    off-topic Ivermectin

    The misinformation about this is RAMPANT in Latin America. Heart-breaking.     https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-02958-2#ref-CR2     Unbiased article talking about ivermectin's potential. Notice trial sizes. Notice the researchers saying evidence is not there to prescribe.   Notice...

    off-topic Ivermectin

    Vaccines are one of the greatest tools of mankind. Influenza. Polio. Yellow fever. The list goes on. Measles.     Please, please, please trust the majority of the world. There is no plot from scientists to make money. There is no cabal. I promise you that. The reason the USA is where it is in...

    misc Scientific Observations of Environmental Stress on Pepper Varieties

    Ill add, and I believe another member mentioned that any legitimate evolutionary correlations kind of become a moot point when we are observing a trait that has been totally and completly changed by human breeding programs over thousands of years. How does it make sense that stress is a factor...

    misc Scientific Observations of Environmental Stress on Pepper Varieties

    Did i not share my personal observations? My, modestly home scientific grows where i enjoy comparing all sorts of things, led me to observe, in a small sample of like varieties, no humanly noticeable increase in capsaicin on my personal tongue, when i stressed the shit outta some after reading...

    misc Scientific Observations of Environmental Stress on Pepper Varieties

    This is all neat. Thought it was a great idea way a while ago when I started. Even if its true what would be the practicality of it? Crap, it was stressful as a grower purposely stressing my plants. So much easier to choose or breed a var to your prefered heat, and grow it happy, no? Im in...

    What color should Scotch Bonnets be..?

    Sweet. Have them up too. I'm trying a bunch of bonnets this year looking for the right plants to keep and take seeds from. Got some Bahamian Goat on the go as well (new to me, and a finally grow).  Trying to wake up some old sb7js for fun too, but its taking some time and may not happen.

    What color should Scotch Bonnets be..?

    Im no expert but I think cup in saucer shape is a great explanation. Also agree, the MOAs are aromatic beasts! Mine are already leaves up in hopes of summer trees. :onfire:  (dang nursery 'bonnets turned out to be habs) ...   If you like bonnets get some moa going in 21, bet your restaurant...
