Wednesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:

The Collapse of Credentialism
Credentialism, the pursuit of credentials for career advancement rather than knowledge, is facing a decline in the United States. This shift is attributed to the public’s growing skepticism towards the ‘expert’ class, particularly highlighted during the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic revealed the limitations of expert advice, undermining the credibility of the credentialed class. The article also discusses the impact of the medical and scientific community’s approach to transgenderism, which further eroded public trust in credentials and titles. The author notes that the rise of self-selected ‘experts’ has led to an imposition of their will on others, often without democratic consent. The fall of former Harvard president Claudine Gay is cited as a pivotal moment in the decline of credentialism, symbolizing the failure of the system. The article concludes by questioning the future role of credentials in professional and academic fields, suggesting a need for a reevaluation of their importance.

Special Guest Erika Escue

Erika Escue-Cadieux is not only an artist but an entrepreneur, inventor, restauranteur, and property developer who’s love for God and country expresses her passion through her very personal art. When she look back upon her life especially in ALL the difficulties and near death experiences she see Gods finger prints all over every part of life, the good and the bad. Despite the abusive and neglectful childhood, abandonment, mental depression, substance abuse and even cancer…It took her years to get to this epiphany and through to a real surrender to our loving Father. You too can find comfort and meaning for your life through these images and can find peace. Erika’s art resonated with life’s growth and revelations and truths- love of God, love of country and love of truth.

After COVID’s devastating toll, the US needs a ‘Pentagon’ for diseases
The United States’ response to COVID-19, which resulted in a disproportionately high death toll compared to other developed nations, highlights the need for a centralized authority to manage pandemics, akin to a ‘Pentagon for disease.’ The author, Donald G. McNeil Jr., argues for a more organized and authoritative approach to handling health crises, citing the lack of a clear chain of command and coordinated response as major flaws in the current system. The article advocates for policies like vaccine mandates during crises and a reorganization of health bureaucracies to function more like the military under the Joint Chiefs of Staff, emphasizing the need for strong leadership and preparedness in the face of future pandemics. McNeil suggests that the U.S. Constitution’s silence on health matters has led to a fragmented approach to disease management. He also criticizes the private sector’s role in healthcare, arguing for a balance between profit motives and public health needs. The article concludes by emphasizing the importance of imaginative and unconventional solutions in combating diseases, drawing on examples from global health crises.

Hour 2

Chinese lab crafts mutant COVID-19 strain with 100% kill rate in ‘humanized’ mice: ‘Surprisingly’ rapid death
Chinese scientists have developed a mutant COVID-19 strain, GX_P2V, which has shown a 100% mortality rate in ‘humanized’ mice. This strain is a mutated version of GX/2017, a coronavirus found in Malaysian pangolins in 2017. The infected mice exhibited rapid health deterioration and all succumbed within eight days. The virus affected multiple organs, including the brain, which was severely impacted. Despite the alarming results, the study’s implications for humans remain unclear. Criticism has emerged from the scientific community, with experts like Francois Balloux and Richard H. Ebright questioning the study’s scientific value and biosafety. Concerns are raised about the potential risks of such research, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic’s origins and the possibility of lab leaks.

Why More Drugs Won’t Save Us from Antibiotic Resistance
The article argues that the increasing problem of antibiotic resistance, which causes significant global mortality, cannot be solved by developing more antibiotic drugs. It criticizes the over-reliance on antibiotics in mainstream medicine, which neglects the importance of natural microbial communities in our bodies. The article suggests that natural compounds like peptides, silver, copper, and botanicals could be effective alternatives to antibiotics, as they are less likely to lead to resistance. It emphasizes the need to cultivate natural immunity and highlights the role of lifestyle factors such as diet, environmental exposures, and stress in weakening our immune systems. The overuse of antibiotics in agriculture is also identified as a contributing factor to resistance. The article advocates for a greater focus on natural health strategies and criticizes the medical establishment’s drug-centered approach.

Antifungals are going the way of antibiotics—overused, hitting resistance
The overprescription of topical antifungal treatments in the U.S. is contributing to a growing problem of drug resistance, similar to the issue with antibiotics. A study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) analyzed Medicare Part D prescription data, revealing that 6.5 million topical antifungal treatments were prescribed in 2021. The most common prescriptions included ketoconazole, nystatin, and clotrimazole-betamethasone dipropionate. The study highlights the difficulty in diagnosing fungal skin infections and the tendency to overprescribe antifungals, which can exacerbate resistance. The article calls for improved antifungal stewardship and urges clinicians to confirm fungal skin infection diagnoses before prescribing antifungals.

Use of Genetically Modified Organism (GMO)-Containing Food Products in Children Families increasingly raise questions about the use of genetically modified organism (GMO)-containing food products. These products are widely found in the US food supply but originate from a narrow list of crops. Although GMO technology could be used to increase the micronutrient content of foods, this does not occur in the United States; instead, GMO technology has been used to make crops resistant to chemical herbicides. As a result, herbicide use has increased exponentially. The World Health Organization’s International Agency on Research for Cancer has determined that glyphosate, an herbicide widely used in producing GMO food crops, is a probable human carcinogen. Measurable quantities of glyphosate are detected in some GMO foods. Families who wish to minimize GMO food products can do so by focusing on a dietary pattern of primarily whole, plant-based foods while minimizing ultra-processed foods. Pediatricians play a vital role in their efforts to minimize fear-based messaging and support families through shared decision-making. Pediatrician awareness of GMO labeling can guide individualized conversations, particularly that non-GMO labeling does not indicate organic status and that increased cost of some non-GMO foods, especially if also organic, may limit this choice for many families.

Are GMO Foods Safe for My Child? AAP Policy Explained
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs), also known as bioengineered products, are living entities whose DNA has been altered to improve growth, appearance, or taste. Common GMOs in the human diet include corn, soybeans, canola, and sugar beets. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) report examines the safety of GMOs, particularly focusing on the health impacts on children. While genetic modification itself is not new and has been practiced for centuries through hybridization, some GMO foods may pose health risks due to their resistance to herbicides, especially those containing glyphosate. Glyphosate, initially considered safe, has been linked to increased risks of certain blood cancers. Studies show glyphosate presence in many foods and in a significant percentage of urine samples in the U.S., suggesting widespread consumption.
