The next time someone tells you that ivermectin is just “horse paste” not intended for human consumption, point them to the World Health Organization‘s (WHO) “WHO Model List of Essential Medicines,”which classifies ivermectin as an anti-infective medicine of utmost importance for human health.
Section 6.1.2, entitled “Antifilarials” under the subheading of “Anti-infective Medicines,” lists ivermectin in 3 mg doses as an effective remedy for controlling parasites. This is why ivermectin is widely used throughout the third world to treat malaria, for instance.
As we reported, ivermectin was first approved for human use in the United States back in 1996. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) declared it to be a safe and effective remedy for treating two parasitic infections: strongyloidiasis and onchocerciasis.
The inventors of ivermectin were also awarded a Nobel Prize in Medicine for their discovery because of how powerful this drug is for its intended purpose.
