Occam's razor, Ockham's razor, Ocham's razor or law of parsimony is the problem-solving principle that "entities should not be multiplied without necessity." Look it up. That's how it's defined.
My definition? "Often the easiest solution is the best solution."
Few of us have the occupational chops to weigh-in on the topic of treatments or cures, but our internal wiring tells us certain things. It's what informs me on COVID-19 and I keep coming back to Occam's razor.
It should not be this hard.
We've learned the media cannot be trusted in this pandemic because it has politicized it. As a result the oft talked about treatment of hydroxychloroquine was rendered useless by the lamestreamers simply because President Trump pushed it out as a treatment. The media forgot that a few dozen researchers extolled its virtues first.
It turned out they, and the President, were correct. It works. Not for everyone, but it has saved lives.
I now turn to the topic at hand...what if a doctor in Texas intuitively turned to a long used drug, with virtually no side effects, used to treat inflammation in the respiratory system, and it worked. 100% of the time...yes, a small pool of patients, but still impressive (and I am sure the number has grown).
Does it deserve some attention?
Of course it does, but outside of a few local newspaper articles around Odessa and what you are about to see it has gone largely ignored. Take a look and listen and you decide for yourself. If you or a loved one should come down with this viral condition you might want to remember the name of the medicine: Budesonide.
