I’ve taken a look at disturbing health posts showing up everywhere from UZworld to TikTok, but today I decided to take a look at the source of a lot of the internet’s medical misinformation: Facebook. What I saw drove me up the wall. Quiet a baby by pressing pressure points? Heal muscle soreness by walking barefoot? The dangers of a red tongue?! Don’t believe everything you see in a Facebook video, and definitely don’t share it unless you can verify it’s TRUE!
I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

  • As an autistic mother of an autistic toddler, even if vaccines caused autism, I think a toddler with autism is better than no toddler, since your kid might die! Also... Vaccines do not cause autism. I'm autistic and my mother barely vaccinated me...

  • The earth is neutral in terms of electrical charge, we are walking antenas, and we produce an electromagnetic field around our body due to the hearth and the brain, being 70% water just makes us a good conductor. Now based on our feelings and thoughts this electromagnetic field changes, by walking on earth or taking a shower or sitting in the sun or in the wind you clear up this personal energetic field. It s pretty simple actually, you just apply cuantum physics instead of newtonian physics to the human biology and then it all makes sense, if we want to get scientific on the subject.

  • Hii Dr. Mike! *Don't get upset if you read this because it's about alternative medicine but feel free to address this theory in some future video, I'd like to hear your opinion on it :)* The post about calming babies which confused you so much is, as I understood, related to reflexology, a theory that there are points on the feet "corresponding" or "related" to inner organs and there are special reflexology massages during which the masseur can point out possible problems with certain organs based on "stress knots" or I don't know what to call them, in these points while massaging your feet and that this massage can also help relieve some of the stress. Now I don't think that means they can treat any illness (I hope they're not convinced so) but for instance, I've been to such a massage once and they told me my kidneys were a bit "stressed", and asked me if I had drank enough fluids...To sum it up, I don't know if this has any proven medical benefits or it's more on the spiritual side, nevertheless, I enjoy and recommend an occasional detailed feet massage :)). Aaaand finally, if you do read this, I'd definitely like to hear your opinion on whether this reflexology massage theory is at all legit from medical point of view? Staying happy and healthy :)

  • So, let’s talk about the vaccines for a moment. I am born during the war in my country. There was no electrician, no water, my mom got 1 slice of bread and half cup of milk after she got me. Not to mention there were no vaccines for babies at a time. First vaccine I’ve got at 6, before school. For 6 years, from which 2 were in a extremely poor conditions (war ended when I was 2), I was the healthiest and happiest kid ever. Now tell me how?? I am living proof that we can live completely fine without any vaccine in our system and I’ll definitely say that I was able to catch a flu from others way quicker after getting vaccines. And no, I’m not the only kid born in this time, many babies were born in the same year and we are all grown ups now. I just talk in my own name and from very personal experience.

  • I definitely appreciate how Dr Mike shows sources to back up what he’s saying! I’m no doctor, but the vaccine/autism connection has never made sense to me. I know so many moms that have it drilled in their heads that vaccines cause autism smh

    • It is because once there was a medical study who claimed to have proven that. It was published in an article in a medical journal. Soon others found out that it was a bad study (the results couldn't be copied by other studies or something, I don't know how exactly but they found out. The article had to be withdrawn. But by that time the damage was done and the message had already spread all over the world.

    superhero universal picturessuperhero universal pictures8 kun oldin
  • I’ve never put stock into whether vaccines give people autism or not, but after seeing that I was surprised that a whopping 20% in that study didn’t appear to get autism from genetics. Because 20% of 2,000,000 is a lot! That means that if every 10 people showed signs of autism after getting a vaccine, 2 of those people may or may not have been inclined to it in their genetics?? I really wish he had talked more about that 20%! If someone is predisposed to autism that statistic isn’t very comforting, right?
