Ed Dowd On Tucker Carlson Today
"Cause Unknown" author becoming very hard to ignore.
By JOHN LEAKE
A few weeks ago I reviewed Ed Dowd’s book, CAUSE UNKNOWN: The Epidemic of Sudden Deaths in 2021-2022. I believe the book should be required reading for all American adults, so I was gratified to see that Tucker Carlson just invited him for a long interview on Tucker Carlson Today. Mr. Dowd speaks very well and the interview is well worth watching in full.
I would like to use our forum here on Substack to comment on just one passage in the interview. At 15:41 on the tape, Mr. Carlson asks:
Now, we’re sure it’s not COVID? These are not lingering effects of COVID?
Mr. Dowd replies:
I’m hearing lately that long COVID is an issue. This is what I’m hearing from people who argue against my thesis. But I’ve yet to see a study or a clinical definition of long COVID.
It is now critically important for medical scientists and the general public to understand the essential reality that Dr. McCullough emphasized to me a few weeks ago—namely, the COVID-19 injections and boosters repeatedly expose the receiver to the dangerous SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. And because the COVID-19 vaccines do NOT prevent infection and transmission, the receiver will be exposed to the spike protein yet again when he contracts COVID-19.
To make matters even more complicated, many who received the COVID-19 gene transfer injections have reported falling ill with symptomatic COVID-19 multiple times, which suggests that their immune systems have been impaired by the injections.
A major feature of the immune system that is almost always omitted from discussions of vaccines and blood antibodies is the powerful role of mucosal immunity. When someone is exposed to SARS-CoV-2 in the wild, the virus enters the body through the nose, and it is there—in the nose—that the body mounts its initial immune response. Mucosal immunity is the body’s first line of defense against the dangerous spike protein. Contrast this with the mRNA gene transfer injections, which induce the body’s own cells to produce, in uncontrolled amounts, the dangerous spike protein, which goes directly into the blood stream, unimpeded and unmitigated by the initial, mucosal immune response.
I recently had the privilege of attending a party in Sydney, Australia hosted by Emeritus Professor, Robert Clancy, who is probably the world’s greatest authority on mucosal immunity. He explained to me there is a whole world of immunity in the nose and throat that—in what may be the most wondrous thing of all—interfaces with immunity in the gastrointestinal tract. If you think about it, it should come as no surprise that the natural immune system—which evolved over hundreds of millions of years—is far more complex than the simple model posited by pharmaceutical lab scientists working at “warp speed” to rush their profitable product onto the market. All of their blather about circulating blood antibodies ignores this entire, major component of the immune system. Professor Clancy’s interview with Dr. John Campbell is fascinating and illuminating.
Now we are in a situation in which the effects of Long COVID-19 and the COVID-19 Vaccines are co-mingling and amplifying each other. Dr. Pierre Kory, who is dedicating his entire practice to treating Long COVID and COVID-19 vaccine side effects, has found that the two syndromes frequently present in vaccinated persons who have also fallen ill with COVID-19. These patients have lingering symptoms of the illness, and they have vaccine side effects, with overlapping symptoms. Thus, he is focusing his research and clinical practice on treating BOTH at the same time, with the same treatment modalities.
