When UFC commentator Joe Rogan announced that he tested positive for COVID-19, he made waves by mentioning he took ivermectin to fight the virus. He now claims the medicine is effective and wonders whether he should sue a major news media outlet.
” Do I have to sue CNN for damages? “They’re making sh*t up,” Rogan stated Tuesday on his highly-rated “The Joe Rogan Experience “ podcast. They keep telling me that I am taking horse dewormer. It was prescribed by a doctor. It’s made by an American company. They won the Nobel Prize in 2015 for use in human beings, and CNN is saying I’m taking horse dewormer. They must be aware .”
that this is a fabrication.
Ivermectin, which has been promoted by people who are against the COVID-19 vaccines, has been approved only as an anti-parasitic treatment for humans and animals such as livestock and horses. It’s not an antiviral medication .
As for ivermectin’s efficacy against COVID-19, scientists are still studying whether it could be used as a treatment, but so far there’s little data to suggest it works. The Food and Drug Administration warned against people taking ivermectin . late last month.
” You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously. “Stop it,” the agency tweeted .
Rogan stands by ivermectin after his recovery. Rogan said that he had only one bad day “ following his “threw the kitchen drain” attack by the virus. Rogan said he also took monoclonal antibodies, which have been proven to work and were taken by President Donald Trump when he contracted COVID-19 last December.
Rogan stated that he was told by “multiple doctors” to take ivermectin. He seems to be particularly troubled by the criticism he has received for doing this.
” What (critics) did not highlight was that I got worse,” Rogan said. He’s claimed that he isn’t “an anti-vax individual” but has been critical of mass vaccinations for comedy shows and events. “They’re trying to make it seem as if I’m doing some whacky sh*t that’s completely ineffective, and CNN was saying that I’m a distributor of misinformation.”
He said, “There is a lot speculation. One speculation is the emergency authorization for vaccines. To be eligible for an emergency authorization, there must be no treatment for a specific disease. Because there is a treatment in ivermectin, and there are other treatments too, there has been a lot of resistance to potential treatments. Some even pretend they don’t work or they’re conspiracy theories.
” This is the grand conspiracy. It is believed that all the pharmaceutical companies conspire to make anyone who takes this drug look insane. What’s more, I have never felt better. I was able to get better quickly, b*tch
