Why I Cannot Sign The Great Barrington Declaration
Over the past several decades health freedom advocates have repeatedly called upon the public to stand for health freedom through a series of Health Freedom Declarations. Natural Solutions Foundation and I are proud to have been among those advocates and we have helped to create and to propagate such declarations enthusiastically.  I was therefore intrigued – and hopeful – when I heard about The Great Barrington Declaration  stating that the the signing physicians and scientists “have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies…”
I expected to be able to whole-heartedly join them. To my disappointment and astonishment, I cannot. Here’s why:
While it is my hopeful (naïve?) assumption that the authors had the best of intentions, when I read the contents, the details, of the Declaration, sadly, I could neither sign nor support this Declaration. I have carefully considered the policy recommendations made and I find that they do not advance Health Freedom of Choice for the following major reasons:
1. “Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health. The results (to name a few) include lower childhood vaccination rates, worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes….”
Devastating, yes, and as a child and adult psychiatrist, I must add that the psychiatric harms caused by policies such as sanitary masking  are horrendous — but not by “lowering” childhood vaccination rates. To my understanding, lowering childhood vaccination rates enhances the health of the fortunate children whose vaccine schedule was delayed or truncated.
In fact, the nearly total halt to “Well Baby Visits” early in the Declared Pandemic led to a very significant decline in Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). SIDS is a diagnosis that essentially means “Sorry, we don’t know what killed your child.” However, holistic doctors know what in all likelihood killed the child: adverse vaccine reactions.
The number of weekly childhood deaths, primarily SIDS, dropped from 700 to 500 in just a few weeks. That 700 weekly figure had continued through years of wide-spread infant vaccination. It dropped dramatically when infant vaccination stopped. 
Thus the Declaration misses one of the most important lessons we could have learned from the COVID lockdown. I cannot sign a document that laments the decrease in pediatric (or adult) vaccinations.
2. “We know that all populations will eventually reach herd immunity – i.e. the point at which the rate of new infections is stable…”
Humans are not herd animals. “Herd Immunity”is an epidemiological myth and does not exist in humans. Community immunity, a far different thing, does, in fact, exist in humans.
Herd immunity is when vulnerable members of a herd do not get a disease to which the majority of the herd is immune. The members of the herd are stable and their interactions with members of other herds is sharply limited so that the immunological status of the group can be predicted. In fact, the genetic make up of a herd is far more similar than the immunological and genetic makeup of human societies and the movements of the group are far different than a tightly defined herd
These predictable behaviors do not apply to humans who are highly mobile, quite diverse social animals whose behavior is not herd-like. We achieve “Community Immunity” when many of us are exposed to a pathogen decreasing in virulence as it spreads through the population through asymptotic or mild infections. That is how our species immune systems deal with novel infections. That is how we survived the Black Plague, the Great Pox, the Small Pox, the 1918 Influenza.
3. “We know that all populations will eventually reach herd immunity – i.e. the point at which the rate of new infections is stable – and that this can be assisted by (but is not dependent upon) a vaccine.”
Vaccination is never a beneficial health policy choice. No major infectious disease was ever stopped by a vaccine. See these UK Government charts for proof of this obvious, but widely ignored, reality:
4. “By way of example, nursing homes should use staff with acquired immunity and perform frequent PCR testing of other staff and all visitors. “
As a health care professional I must say that this 4th issue truly baffles me. I do not understand how any humane health care system could expose the vulnerable to those who may be asymptotic carriers while relying on testing that has been proven to have an unacceptable level of false positives and false negatives. I have written elsewhere about the complete unreliability of both the PCR and the antibody COVIS testing. I cannot sign a document which waits breathlessly for a gene-editing, experimental vaccine and asks that serious, life-altering decisions be made on the basis of tests with a disastrous accuracy score.
Too bad. I would love to join my colleagues and sign the Great Barrington Declaration but it is well meaning (I hope) but absolutely wrong headed. Sadly, it is filled with major policy mistakes to which I cannot put my name.
Instead, I urge all health care givers to sign onto the Health Keepers Oath, pledging not to allow your skills to be used to oppress the sick and suffering. More about that here: www.HealthKeepersOath.org

I have read “The Hidden Rainbow” and I have read many who are fighting this mandate with many medical truths about how a mask does not help and actually causes problems with health. BUT I have not read one comment about this book except by Dr, Cowan.
We cannot fight for truth one item at a time. We need, first an open, non time limited or commentator controlled open to all media NESARA type dialog. This beginning with the biggest controversy of flat earth. this is a corporate lie. No church will go with the bible. they are corporations. No corporation will speak up. Once people realize NASA has lied they will question government, schools, churches, health media, No one knows the church produced this lie and is part of the “Tri Lateral Commission” . I could go on
You are absolutely right, Charles.
I second the motion.
And remind all of the urgent nature of the matter.
The written plans of these evil demons in control from their masonic temples are not hidden. They are loaded with terms like “post modern” and “post human” and culling our numbers by over 90% because they believe us to be their herd!
My soul aches like I never knew it could when I see all these people participating in this “covidiot masquerade ritual ball”
There is a super informative video by that name from Truthstream media reading from their own books about the importance to them of masquing the initiate as one of the requirements of satanic induction rituals.
Anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear can find this stuff out. They don’t hide it because they believe they do not have do deal with any spiritual repercussions (like karma) for anything they do to us if they tell us they are doing it to us and we don’t say NO! Silence is acquiescence!
I DO NOT CONSENT! And I most strongly suggest you don’t either.
I can add that the church knows the truth about Sodium Fluoride and its impact on the pineal gland and how our mood, emotion, intelligence, spiritual freedom are controlled. Hitler knew it stops a questioning attitude toward authority figures, If we can’t control emotion, we can’t manifest our desires. the church says speak to the mountain, not produce the emotion connected with thought (bible tampering by Jesuits. See lost gospel of Thomas. King Constantine made a history book of the bible and a religion (all are man made doctrines that ENDOCTRINATE us. control by fictitious traditions to bring children in. The Buddhist know how to manifest desires as noted above. Buddha said: three things cannot long be hidden – the sun, the moon and the truth.” Flat earth science proves the sun and moon and is the Truth.
