Look who signed it! David L. Katz!

Friday, May 8th, 2020

We are faced with David L. Katz, the very David L. Katz we already know, and who I wrote about in

“J’accuse: Prof. David L. Katz knowingly supports a lethal cancer fraud”
http://www.healbreastcancerawards.org/#davidkatz_2

The text of the open letter is published in several languages. I so far found Dutch, German, English, and Spanish.

Madness rules.

Health Professionals Sound Alarm Over Social Media Infodemic

As doctors, nurses and health experts from around the world, we are here to sound the alarm. Our job is to keep people safe. But right now we face not only a COVID-19 pandemic but a global infodemic, with viral misinformation on social media threatening lives around the world.

Stories claiming cocaine is a cure, or that COVID-19 was developed as a biological weapon by China or the US, have spread faster than the virus itself. Tech companies have tried to act, taking down certain content when it is flagged, and allowing the World Health Organization to run free ads.

But their efforts are far from enough.

The tsunami of false and misleading content about the coronavirus is not an isolated outbreak of disinformation, it’s part of a global plague. On Facebook, we have seen claims that chlorine dioxide helps people suffering from autism and cancer; that millions of Americans were given a “cancer virus” via the polio shot; that ADHD was “invented by big pharma”. The list goes on.

By promoting bogus cures, or scaring people off vaccines and effective treatments, these lies matter. And they travel far — one Facebook post claiming ginger is 10,000 times more effective at beating cancer than chemotherapy has been liked, shared and commented on almost 30,000 times.

That’s why today we are calling on the tech giants to take immediate systemic action to stem the flow of health misinformation, and the public health crisis it has triggered.

Working in hospitals, clinics and public health departments across the globe we are all too familiar with the real-world impacts of this infodemic. It’s us who treat the toddlers hospitalised for measles, a completely avoidable disease once eliminated in countries like the US but now on the rise largely thanks to anti-vaxxer propaganda.

Not only do we health professionals deal with such repercussions, but often we are blamed. Misinformation thus dents the morale of an already strained profession, while the financial cost of battling it eats into badly over-stretched budgets.

The diagnosis is grim, so what can be done?

Social media platforms must start with two obvious and urgent steps.

First, they must correct the record on health misinformation. This means alerting and notifying every single person who has seen or interacted with health misinformation on their platforms, and sharing a well-designed and independently fact-checked correction — something shown to help prevent users believing harmful lies. While platforms like Facebook have already moved to label fact-checked misinformation, this system does not go far enough since millions of people may have seen a post before it is fact-checked and labeled. That is why we are urgently calling on Facebook to alert ALL users who have fallen victim to such content, which means going a step further than labeling by providing users with retroactive corrections.

Second, the platforms must detox the algorithms that decide what people see. This means harmful lies, and the pages and groups that share them, are downgraded in user feeds, instead of being amplified. Harmful misinformation, and pages and channels that belong to repeat offenders who spread it, should also be removed from the algorithms that recommend content. These algorithms currently prioritise keeping users online over safeguarding their health, and that ends up downgrading humanity’s well-being.

Technology companies who have both facilitated the spread of ideas and profited from it have a unique power and responsibility to counter the deadly spread of misinformation and stop social media from making our communities sicker. To save lives and restore trust in science-based healthcare, tech giants must stop giving oxygen to the lies, smears and fantasies that threaten us all.

Ärzte schlagen Alarm wegen Infodemie auf Social Media

Als Ärztinnen und Ärzte, Krankenpfleger/innen und Gesundheitsexpert/innen aus der ganzen Welt müssen wir jetzt Alarm schlagen. Es ist unsere Aufgabe, für die Sicherheit der Menschen zu sorgen. Wir haben es in diesem Moment allerdings nicht nur mit der COVID-19-Pandemie zu tun, sondern auch mit einer weltweiten “Infodemie”, bei der durch Fehlinformationen, die sich in den sozialen Medien viral verbreiten, auf der ganzen Welt Menschenleben gefährdet werden.

Berichte, in denen behauptet wird, dass Kokain ein Heilmittel sei oder dass COVID-19 von China oder den USA als biologische Waffe entwickelt wurde, haben sich schneller verbreitet als das Virus selbst. Technologieunternehmen versuchen zu reagieren, indem sie bestimmte Inhalte, wenn sie gemeldet werden, löschen und es der Weltgesundheitsorganisation gleichzeitig erlauben, kostenlose Anzeigen zu schalten.

Diese Anstrengungen sind aber bei weitem nicht genug.

Die Flutwelle an falschen und irreführenden Inhalten über das Coronavirus ist kein isolierter Ausbruch von Desinformation, sondern Teil eines globalen Problems. Auf Facebook haben wir Behauptungen beobachtet, dass Chlordioxid Menschen hilft, die an Autismus und Krebs leiden, dass Millionen von Amerikanern durch die Polio-Spritze ein „Krebsvirus“ verabreicht wurde oder dass ADHS von den großen Pharmakonzernen erfunden wurde usw.

Diese Lügen sind von Bedeutung, weil sie falsche Heilmittel anpreisen oder die Menschen von Impfungen und wirkungsvollen Behandlungen abbringen wollen. Und sie haben eine große Reichweite — ein Beitrag auf Facebook, laut dem Ingwer 10.000-mal effektiver bei der Krebsbekämpfung sein soll als eine Chemotherapie, wurde fast 30.000-mal geliked, geteilt und kommentiert.

Deswegen rufen wir heute die Technologieunternehmen dazu auf, sofort und systematisch aktiv zu werden, um die Flut an medizinischen Fehlinformationen sowie die dadurch ausgelöste Gesundheitskrise zu stoppen.

Durch unsere Arbeit in Krankenhäusern, Kliniken und Gesundheitsämtern auf der ganzen Welt kennen wir uns nur zu gut mit den tatsächlichen Auswirkungen dieser Infodemie aus. Wir sind diejenigen, die Kleinkinder mit Masern stationär behandeln – eine vollkommen vermeidbare Krankheit, die in Ländern wie den USA bereits als ausgerottet galt, jetzt aber vor allem dank Impfgegner-Propaganda wieder auflebt.

Als Angehörige der Gesundheitsberufe müssen wir uns nicht nur um die Folgen kümmern, sondern werden oft auch noch dafür verantwortlich gemacht. Fehlinformationen verschlechtern so die Moral eines ohnehin schon unter großem Druck stehenden Berufsstandes, während die finanziellen Kosten der Behandlung ohnehin übermäßig beanspruchte Budgets noch mehr belasten.

Die Diagnose sieht finster aus, was kann also getan werden?

Die sozialen Medien müssen mit zwei offensichtlichen und dringenden Schritten vorangehen.

Zunächst einmal müssen sie Richtigstellungen zu den Gesundheits-Fehlinformationen veröffentlichen. Das bedeutet, dass jede einzelne Person, die auf ihren Plattformen mit Gesundheits-Fehlinformationen in Berührung gekommen ist, gewarnt und benachrichtigt wird, und dass eine gut konzipierte und unabhängig überprüfte Korrektur angezeigt wird — etwas, das nachweislich dabei helfen kann, dass Benutzer nicht an gefährliche Lügen glauben. Während Plattformen wie Facebook bereits dazu übergegangen sind, auf Fakten geprüfte Fehlinformationen zu kennzeichnen, geht dieses Verfahren nicht weit genug, da Millionen von Menschen einen Beitrag sehen können, bevor er auf Fakten geprüft und gekennzeichnet wurde. Deshalb fordern wir Facebook dringend auf, ALLE Nutzer, die solchen Inhalten zum Opfer gefallen sind, zu warnen. Das bedeutet, einen Schritt weiterzugehen als die bloße Kennzeichnung, nämlich indem den Nutzern rückwirkend Richtigstellungen mitgeteilt werden.

Zweitens müssen die Plattformen ihre Algorithmen entgiften, die bestimmen, was den Benutzern angezeigt wird. Das bedeutet, dass gefährliche Lügen sowie diejenigen Seiten und Gruppen, die sie verbreiten, in den Benutzer-Feeds herab- und nicht heraufgestuft werden. Schädliche Fehlinformationen sowie Seiten und Kanäle, die “Wiederholungstätern” gehören, die diese Informationen verbreiten, sollten ebenfalls aus den inhaltsempfehlenden Algorithmen herausgenommen werden. Die Algorithmen konzentrieren sich derzeit mehr darauf, die Benutzer online zu halten, als ihre Gesundheit zu schützen. Und das führt zu einer Beeinträchtigung des gesellschaftlichen Wohlbefindens.

Technologieunternehmen, die sowohl die Verbreitung von Ideen erleichtern, als auch davon profitiert haben, befinden sich in einer unvergleichlichen Machtposition und sind dafür verantwortlich, der tödlichen Verbreitung von Fehlinformationen entgegenzuwirken, um zu verhindern, dass soziale Medien unsere Gesellschaft kränker machen. Um Leben zu retten und das Vertrauen in die wissenschaftlich fundierte Gesundheitsversorgung wiederherzustellen, müssen die Tech-Giganten aufhören, die Lügen, Verdrehungen und Fantasien, die uns alle bedrohen, weiter anzufachen.

web.de ist ein ernstes Problem

Friday, May 8th, 2020

web.de weigert sich, das Opfer eines Cyber-Angriffs von diesem Angriff zu informieren. Damit wird web.de zu einem ernsten Problem für jeden, der bei web.de einen Email-Account hat.

Weil der Account von Fremden übernommen wurde, ist es mir nicht möglich, das Opfer zu warnen, denn die Kriminellen würden diese Email verschwinden lassen.

Es ist Aufgabe des Emailserver-Hosters, sich um diese Angelegenheit zu kümmern. Doch web.de weigert sich.

Die folgende Email wurde angeblich von diesem Opfer abgeschickt. Es ist eine Falle.

{div}Ich hoffe, dass dieser Brief dich rechtzeitig erreicht. Ich bin zur Zeit in Odessa und habe meine Tasche verloren. Leider waren mein Reisepass und meine Kreditkarte auch in der Tasche. Die Botschaft ist bereit, mich ohne meinen Pass fliegen zu lassen. Ich muss nur noch für mein Ticket und die hotelrechnungen zahlen. Ich wollte dich fragen, ob du mir 1000,-EUR so schnell wie möglich leihen kannst. Ich gebe es dir zurück sobald ich da bin. Ich warte auf deine Antwort.{/div}
