Going down the wrong path
Why I openly question the "New Normal" or "New life style"
A Return to Common sense
We live in times where Big Pharma wields great power, and in this there is a great potential for serious damage.
Today, we have the ridiculous situation of WHO receiving the bulk of its financial support (68%) from private donors; funding, which cannot be used for anything else other than what the private donors consider their top priority in public health issues.
Two of its major funders, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) and GAVI— the Vaccine Alliance sponsored by BMGF— provided USD 460 Million to WHO, while the richest member state provided only USD 120 Million as assessed contributions in 2019..

Do we need to risk our youth's health and future?
Japan is an aging society. It's youth are much more precious because of this.
