Many new studies have proven that Black Death was not only pneumonic or bubonic plague. Many corpses have been found to have a “Ebolalike” component.  The bug on that report, the new outbreak going on at same time as the pneumonic plague, is Marburg, which is a “Ebolalike” disease only more deadly than the cousin Ebola. So my question is, is this just coincidental, or is it because of the solar minimum and like during the Maunder Minimum we will see a marriage between pneumonic plague and Marburg?  Is the SHTF for 50% of us?

  • TheWatchmen2011:
For hypothyroidism, I would recommend looking into the work of Dr. Ray Peat. Ray Peat dot come is his website. He has a newsletter of monthly articles. He in my opinion is the authority on hormones and thyroid and is one of the few who is ahead of his time and is good at 'connecting re dots.' His approach is mainly diet. There is a website called RayPeatForum dot com where other scientists and people who follow him talk about the same stuff and if you want to know about a health issue you can type the name of it in the search bar on the forum and get results for topics on it discussed which usually have many good nuggets of truth in them to help out.
