Earlier this month, COVID-19 quack Dr. Pierre Kory was told that the American Board of Internal Medicine had recommended removing his board certification. Kory’s answer? ABIM is corrupt!
Recently, two COVID-19 antivax quacks, Drs. Paul Marik and Pierre Kory of the COVID-19 quack group FLCCC, announced that the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) had informed them that their board certifications were in jeopardy, which they promptly used to portray themselves as “persecuted.” What’s going on?
A recent report in The Washington Post last week reveals just how badly state medical boards have been failing when dealing with physicians spreading COVID-19 misinformation and using quackery to prevent and treat the disease. None of this is anything new, unfortunately. The pandemic has merely stress tested state medical boards, and most have failed because of political choices made long ago.
Dr. Peter McCullough once again promotes a “nattokinase”-based “detox” from spike protein (now with bromelain), not not from COVID-19 but from the vaccines. Of course.
Last month, Dr. Rashid Buttar, a prominent antivax “integrative medicine” practitioner, died suddenly. Because he hadn’t been vaccinated, antivaxxers struggled mightily to reconcile his death with their conspiracy theories about COVID-19 vaccines. It turns out, however, that that Dr. Buttar had not been a well man since 2016 and was as much a victim of quackery as his patients had been.
