(Natural News) With hosts like Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity — neither of whom seems to have a clue about infectious disease — Fox News has become a stampede of morons who embarrass themselves almost daily with Idiocracy-class nonsense that tries to claim the coronavirus is no big deal. The latest idiot to join the stampede is Dr. Phil McGraw. He joined Laura Ingraham on Fox News last night, unleashing what Mediaite called, “a wild ride of illogic, misinformation, and just plain stupidity.”

We hereby declare Dr. Phil is inducted into the “stupid-19” Hall of Shame for his science illiteracy and horrible misinformation.

During the segment, Dr. Phil claimed no coronavirus lockdown was necessary, claiming that 360,000 Americans die every year in “swimming pool deaths.”

According to the CDC, around 3,500 people die from accidental drowning in the United States each year. That’s about 10 deaths per day.

Just three days ago in America, the coronavirus killed over 2,400 people, or more than 20 times the number who died from accidental drowning. See this chart for clarity:

Dr. Phil then declared “we don’t shut the country down” for drowning deaths.

Somebody please tell Dr. Phil that drowning to death is not an infectious disease.

Scientifically illiterate people keep comparing covid-19 deaths to things that aren’t infectious disease in order to claim the covid-19 deaths aren’t that large

This has been a point that seemingly no conservatives are able to understand, as they keep comparing covid-19 with abortions, obesity, heart attacks, car crashes and other causes of deaths that aren’t transmitted from one person to another. Both Michael Savage and myself have been the two most prominent voices calling out the scientific illiteracy of conservative talking heads who seem to be suffering from some kind of shared brain-eating amoeba that has consumed the number-crunching circuits inside their skulls.

“Two hundred and fifty people a year die from poverty,” Dr. Phil (McGraw) told Ingraham, raising eyebrows about where he’s getting such numbers, given that poverty is actually associated with hundreds of thousands of deaths per year, yet isn’t a transmissible disease. So Dr. Phil is wrong on both the numbers and the category of the condition.

Dr. Phil went on to claim that automobile accidents kill 45,000 people a year in the United States, once again failing to understand why lockdowns help control an infectious disease but aren’t a necessary strategy for non-infectious accidents and other causes of accidental death.

It was like a scene ripped right out of Idiocracy.

On a similar note, Dr. Oz recently apologized after appearing on Fox News with Sean Hannity, where he seemed to say that schools should be reopened nationwide because doing so would “only” kill 2 to 3% of children.

“I tell ya, schools are a very appetizing opportunity,” Dr. Oz said. “I just saw a nice piece in The Lancet arguing that the opening of schools may only cost us 2 to 3% in terms of total mortality.”

The Lancet study he was citing actually explained that closing schools would prevent 2-4% of deaths across the entire adult population, which is millions of people. It seemed that Dr. Oz was suggesting it’s worth millions of deaths across America to put children back in school right away.

That prompted one observer to comment, “The Hippocratic Oath – Dr. Oz edition: First, do 2 to 3 % harm.”

Dr. Oz later apologized, saying, “I’ve realized my comments on risks around opening schools have confused and upset people, which was never my intention. I misspoke.”

Fox News, it seems, has become a hub of coronavirus disinformation from ignorant hosts and guests who, on a daily basis, demonstrate to the world that their brains don’t work and they shouldn’t be trusted to offer intelligent opinions about anything at all.

About the author: Mike Adams (aka the “Health Ranger“) is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com called “Food Forensics“), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics. Follow his videos, podcasts, websites and science projects at the links below.

Mike Adams serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation. He has also achieved numerous laboratory breakthroughs in the programming of automated liquid handling robots for sample preparation and external standards prep.

The U.S. patent office has awarded Mike Adams patent NO. US 9526751 B2 for the invention of “Cesium Eliminator,” a lifesaving invention that removes up to 95% of radioactive cesium from the human digestive tract. Adams has pledged to donate full patent licensing rights to any state or national government that needs to manufacture the product to save human lives in the aftermath of a nuclear accident, disaster, act of war or act of terrorism. He has also stockpiled 10,000 kg of raw material to manufacture Cesium Eliminator in a Texas warehouse, and plans to donate the finished product to help save lives in Texas when the next nuclear event occurs. No independent scientist in the world has done more research on the removal of radioactive elements from the human digestive tract.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and American Indians. He is of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his “Health Ranger” passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the author of the world’s first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed “strange fibers” found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health “gurus,” dangerous “detox” products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over fifteen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
