Hours after Danny Lemoi posted an update in his hugely popular pro-ivermectin Telegram group, Dirt Road Discussions, he died.
Lemoi, like other science denying MAGAts “took a daily dose of veterinary ivermectin, a dewormer designed to be used on large animals like horses and cows.” Danny even posted for his minions on how to administer the drug NOT MEANT FOR HUMANS to children:
Now, many of his minions on Telegram are questioning their own possible side effects from taking ivermectin and some have finally started questioning the safety of the drug. Like all shitholes that pollute the interwebz, “administrators of his channel are pushing his misinformation.”
Lemoi, a heavy equipment operator who lived in Foster, Rhode Island, “passed away unexpectedly” on March 3, according to an online obituary post by his family last week. He was survived by his parents and brother. The obituary gave no details about the cause of his death.
Lemoi began taking the version of ivermectin designed for animals on a daily basis in 2012, after he was diagnosed with Lyme disease, according to a detailed account of his medical history he gave on a podcast last November. He said then that five months after first taking the drug, he quit all other treatments and believed ivermectin had “regenerated” his heart muscle.
The admins of his channel claim that ivermectin was not the cause of death:
“Danny was fully convinced that his heart had regenerated after his incident with Lyme disease that almost ended in congestive heart failure,” the admins wrote, before claiming that “a family history of heart disease and chronic stress” were why his heart had ultimately become engorged. “All of his other organs were unremarkable,” the admins wrote. “And this was determined to be a death by unfortunate natural causes.”
And according to the Missouri Poison Center, ingesting large doses of ivermectin formulated for animals has a long list of side effects, including seizures, coma, lung issues, and heart problems. Veterinary ivermectin is not a cure or effective treatment for COVID, the FDA has repeatedly warned, and is highly concentrated because it is designed for large animals like horses and cows. “Such high doses can be highly toxic in humans,” the FDA cautions.
Some of his minions have now expressed their concerns about ingesting the drug not meant for humans:
“I’m 4 months now and all hell’s breaking loose, all pain has hit my waist down with sciatic, shin splints, restless leg syndrome, tight sore calves & it feels like some pain in the bones,” a member wrote on Friday.
