Ivermectin's Discoverer: A Tribute
Satoshi Ōmura standing next to WHO memorial.
By JOHN LEAKE
One of Dr. McCullough’s Twitter followers just sent us this photo:
It shows Satoshi Ōmura—the discoverer of the Streptomyces avermitilis bacterium in a soil sample he collected on a golf course in Japan. The sculpture behind him alludes to the scourge of River Blindness that his discovery vanquished throughout the tropical world. Prior to Dr. Omura’s discovery and the mass production of the bacterium’s effective molecule, it was common for African children to lead their blind elders (often no older than forty) around with a stick.
I found the sculpture and photograph so poignant that I felt compelled to share it with our readers.
Dr. Omura received the Nobel Prize in 2015 for his discovery and the WHO erected this monument near its headquarters. Just a few years later—in its massive propaganda campaign against Ivermectin for treating COVID-19—the FDA smeared the drug as a “horse paste.”

13 years ago I contracted something from the soil in New Mexico, by way of accidentally stepping on a piece of Cholla Cactus- barefoot. Talk about pain! Our dog had brought into the house. I had intense itching that drove me crazy. I often couldn't even sleep. At first it looked like Ringworm, but after a trip to the ER they were not able to diagnose it, and ended up giving me a steroid to reduce the symptoms. After awhile that no longer worked, and actually harms the skin. Then a friend suggested Apple Cider Vinegar to reduce the awful itching. which burned like crazy for a few minutes but gave me temporary relief. Only in the past couple of weeks did I try IVM on the now 3 large and very uncomfortable rashes on my legs. I had the horse version on hand and have previously taken it for an episode of Covid Shedding with great success. I applied it topically once per day. So now after 13 years of suffering, I am thrilled to see this terrible affliction, now almost completely gone after a week of trying this out.
