Title: 'Germs are not a real thing': Fox News host says he hasn't washed hands in 10 years

Pete Hegseth denies existence of germs, saying: ‘I can’t see them, therefore they’re not real’

Donald Trump’s favourite TV show, Fox & Friends, has a reputation for giving airtime to conspiracy theories that benefit the White House agenda. But host Pete Hegseth may now have managed to upset the famously germaphobic president – by revealing that he has not washed his hands in a decade.

The admission came as Hegseth discussed eating day-old pizza that had not been refrigerated. He did not see any issue with eating the pizza, he said, then added that he didn’t think he had washed his hands in 10 years.

“Really,” he said. “I don’t really wash my hands ever.”

Met with laughter, he explained: “I inoculate myself. Germs are not a real thing. I can’t see them, therefore they’re not real.”

On Twitter on Monday, Hegseth gave mixed messages. He claimed he had been joking and paraphrased the president in blaming the media for being so “self-righteous and angry”. He also said he supported drinking from hosepipes and riding bikes without a helmet.

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises that regular hand washing “is one of the best ways to remove germs, avoid getting sick, and prevent the spread of germs to others”. Being well educated about hand washing “reduces the number of people who get sick with diarrhea by 23% to 40%”, it says.

Fox has form, however, when it comes to denying scientific fact just because it is not immediately observable. Analysis by the progressive watchdog Media Matters for America found that Fox News hosts tend to discuss climate change when the weather is particularly cold, seeking to cast doubt over accepted science regarding rising global temperatures.

Hegseth, who served with the national guard in Iraq, was once reported to be Trump’s favoured pick to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs. That role would have made him responsible for the health and wellbeing of 20 million Americans.

Do Germs Really Cause Disease? Did you know that it's never been truly proven - beyond a shadow of a doubt - that germs are the real originator of disease? Sure, it seems like they are, and Louis Pasteur's germ theory of disease has been around long enough that most people assume that it's true. However, the germ theory has never really been proven, and there are many excellent doctors and scientists out there who think it's basically ridiculous!

So, what is the germ theory, and how do we know that it is probably untrue? The excellent book Healing Our Children has some answers that you might find interesting:

pillsThe germ theory essentially says that microorganisms like bacteria and viruses are the true cause of disease. Each disease, apparently, has its own microorganisms, which can be passed from one person to the next through bodily fluids, handshakes, sneezes, and dirty toilet seats. It's an easy thing to believe, and it means that we're never really responsible for our own diseases, as long as we wash our hands and take the medicine the doctor prescribes.

Most people now accept this hundred-year-old theory as fact, but the fact is that it remains nothing more than a scientific theory. There's really no way to prove that germs are the true cause of disease.

The real cause of disease Another view on the germ theory, put forward by Antoine Bechamp, among other qualified scientists and doctors, actually note that germs are related to disease, but not in the way that we might think. Here's how it works:

You have germs in your body all the time. You're practically swimming in them right now, whether you're reading this in the comfort of your own home, at the local park, or even at a hospital! Some germs, we know, are actually good. For instance, the microorganisms in your intestines are actually necessary to helping your body absorb nutrients fully, and without them, you can experience a host of digestive problems and other ailments.

So, if you have germs in your body all the time, when do you become sick? This theory says that you become sick when the landscape of your body - you internal environment - causes germs that would otherwise be harmless or even helpful - to morph into the disease-agents we think of whenever we hear the word "germs." That's why when you examine a person who has the flu or a cold, you see that he has bacteria or viruses that seem to be causing the problem.

However, here the germs aren't the source of the problem - they're merely one of many symptoms. The true problem is your body trying to clean up its interior landscape so that you can be whole and healthy again. This cleanup involves getting rid of various built-up toxins in the system, by burning them out through fever, getting them through the skin as in a rash, or even expelling them forcefully as in diarrhea or when you sneeze!

It's certainly true that people are far too indoctrinated into thinking that all bacteria is unhealthy and only invites disease. It's likely only a minority that knows that there are healthy bacteria in the intestinal tract of all people and without it people would NOT be healthy, but beyond that, bacteria is all around us and covers our skin about completely 24/7.

This bacterial-phobia is probably the reason why we have all this anti-bacterial soaps on the market which are promoting the development of super bacteria that is increasingly resistant to synthetic anti-biotics. If AOC wants to outlaw something for the benefit of our environment, that would be something I'd agree with.

Breastfeed for 4 to 7 years.....NEVER be unavailable to your child? Now THAT is crazy. I guess that is how ou build children who never move out of the home, and remain children forever.

THIS IS A TAG LINE...Exercising rights is only radical to two people, Tyrants and Slaves. Which are YOU? Our ignorance has driven us into slavery and we do not recognize it.
