Many people felt coerced into taking the coronavirus vaccine over the last year, and there were even many who lost their jobs and livelihood because they refused to take an experimental shot that they didn't need. Vaccine scientists, various medical experts, politicians, and even celebrities have spent the whole year praising the Covid vaccine and pressuring people to get their shots. Countless insults have been hurled at individuals who chose to practice caution or decided that they didn't need the vaccine in order to stave off or survive coronavirus. Peter Hotez is a vaccine scientist and author who was a guest on the Joe Rogan Experience, where he talked positively about the vaccine while admitting that he himself doesn't live a healthy lifestyle.
Vaccine Scientist Admits on 'Joe Rogan Experience' That He's a "Junkfoodaholic" and Pushes People to Get Covid Booster Instead of Eating Healthy
Joe Rogan is known for doing longform interviews with a variety of individuals from all political aisles, professions, and expertise. His latest interview with Hotez revealed yet again just how hypocritical these so-called experts are when it comes to health and wellness. Rogan asked Hotez what he does to protect his immune health other than getting the vaccine. Does he take probiotics or vitamins? Is he cautious about his diet? Hotez's answers might surprise you (well, they probably won't).
"I'm not as cautious about my diet as I should be," Hotez responds. "I'm a junkfoodaholic actually."
"Well that seems like a terrible thing for your health," Rogan says.
"It is a terrible thing for my health," Hotez says while grinning from ear to ear.
"Well that seems ridiculous for someone who works with health," Rogan says.
"Yeah, yeah, man, sometimes I just don't get it right," Hotez says, now laughing.
He attempts to shrug it off but Rogan keeps pressing him, reminding him that there's a body of evidence and data showing how detrimental and even deadly a poor diet full of junk food can be for the body and overall health. Hotez keeps laughing and making light of it, never addressing Rogan's point that it's patently ridiculous that a health expert would have such an unhealthy lifestyle.
He says he and his autistic daughter Rachel love to go to a burger shack and order cheeseburgers, fries, etc. "That's our thing," he says.
Hotez says traveling is a struggle and it makes it difficult for him to stay on a healthy routine, but Rogan chimes in and says that when you're traveling, you just have to stick to a routine. As soon as Rogan arrives at a hotel when he's traveling, he puts on his shorts and goes to the hotel gym.
They also discussed vitamins and supplements that have been proven to help with brain function, immunity, etc, such as vitamin D, essential fatty acids, and fish oil. Hotez says he doesn't take any of these regularly. Hotez then insists that everyone get their coronavirus booster shot, because apparently, even if you're eating healthy and exercising, you still need to get your vaccine.
The comment section on Twitter, where this clip was shared, highlights the absurdity of a "health expert" being addicted to junk food and living an unhealthy lifestyle, all the while pressuring people to take a vaccine developed quickly by Big Pharma. It's just as ridiculous as a financial expert giving wealth advice while being completely broke, or a marriage expert talking about how to strengthen your relationship when he's divorced and single.
"@PeterHotez you should feel as stupid as you made yourself look in this interview. You are not a 'health' professional, you are a pharma professional. We see you," someone wrote.
It seems that people are finally waking up to the hypocrisy of conventional medical experts and are choosing to think for themselves.
