A review of calls to poison control centers across America in regards to ivermectin resulted in a total of zero deaths in 2021. Every study I have come across showed no serious side effects with ivermectin use. Conversely, over 7,000 people in the US die annually as a result of aspirin, a medication that is easily purchased over the counter in any drug store. Since were busy banning ivermectin over zero deaths, should we now also ban aspirin from our shelves? Where are all the cries to ban aspirin?
