  • Good news to everyone reading this comment. I want to share my testimony on how i belong to the world famous illuminate fraternity society, and how i have become more famous, by acquiring huge wealth, riches and fame. Here is how my life changed. A friend of mine that was always giving me money, because he was very rich, wealthy, famous and successful. On one beautiful day, he said to me that he is not going to give me any money, that he is going to show me the way to be successful in life. So i was very happy, i never knew he was a member of the great illuminate society. So i was initiated to the world famous illuminate society, and few days later, i was awarded a contract worth millions of Dollars. Right now as i speak, in my business i am doing very well, i travel the world on business deals, i am now the one that gives money out to people, before life was so hard for me and my family.

    Hard to watch for sensitive persons. This doc is between immoral and insensitive, somewhere near curious to watch horrible things to others. It’s a breakage of personal bond between patient, doctor and family. Louis and spectators are rude intruders here…

    Relax! – The Future World will be the World Without Diseases and Death – In fact The Future Belongs to Us – The Immortal Humans – A NEW ERA IS DAWNING ON HUMANITY – NO DISEASES, NO DRUGS, NO VACCINES, NO VACCINE INDUSTRY, NO PHARMA INDUSTRY, NO DOCTORS, NO HOSPITALS, NO “THERAPIES” LIKE SLICING, POISONING AND BURNING, ETC. BS – WE HUMANS WILL STAY ABSOLUTELY HEALTHY ALL THE TIME, LIVING OUR ENDLESS LIVES – Any infections, allergies, cancers, diabetes, polio, TB, cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, genetic and any other diseases, known on Earth, will be erased from the face of the planet in just a few days, if everybody (kids and adults) start doing my discovery (just an exercise for a minute a day – the greatest discovery of all time on Earth and maybe in the Universe) – My WVCD – The Weapon of Virus and Cancer Destruction – By far more powerful than the human immune system, keeping it intact all the time, for any pathogens are killed the moment they touch us – We humans will possess the Infinite Health and we will become Immortal – Just like the Extraterrestrials, like our Creators from the planet of Nibiru – The Anunnaki, if I am paid 5 billion bucks to disclose my discovery – Just 25 million bucks per country in the world – As a proof of the power of my discovery, for more than 5 years now, I never got sick even of the common cold, my blood sugar level is 300 mg/dl, but I am not sick of diabetes, for I cannot get sick of it, or of any other diseases – I am the healthiest person on the planet, I am absolutely free to eat any food I like, no restrictions whatsoever, doing my discovery for just a minute a day – The only way on Earth for everybody to stay absolutely healthy all the time and of course being Immortal, for Infinite Health = Immortality.
