War on Ivermectin: The Medicine that Saved Millions and Could Have Ended the Pandemic (Hardcover)
Big Pharma and health agencies cry, “Don’t take ivermectin!” A media storm follows. Why then, does the science say the opposite?”
Ivermectin is a dirty word in the media. It doesn’t work. It’s a deadly horse dewormer. Prescribe or promote it and you’ll be called a right-wing quack, be banned from social media, or lose your license to practice medicine. And yet, entire countries wiped out the virus with it, and more than ninety-five studies now show it to be unequivocally effective in preventing and treating Covid-19. If it didn’t work, why was there a coordinated global campaign to cancel it? What’s the truth about this decades-old, Nobel Prize-winning medication?
The War on Ivermectin is the personal and professional narrative of Dr. Pierre Kory and his crusade to recommend a safe, inexpensive, generic medicine as the key to ending the pandemic.
Written with Jenna McCarthy, Dr. Kory’s story chronicles the personal attacks, professional setbacks, and nefarious efforts of the world’s major health agencies and medical journals to dismiss and deny ivermectin’s efficacy. Part personal narrative, part scathing expose, The War on Ivermectin highlights the catastrophic impacts of the mass media censorship and relentless propaganda that led to the greatest humanitarian crisis in history.
Although numerous studies and epidemiologic data have shown that millions of lives were saved globally with the systematic use of ivermectin, many more millions perished. This carnage was the direct result of what Dr. Kory eventually discovered to be the pharmaceutical industry’s silent but deadly war on generic medicines and the corrupt, captured medical and media systems that allow it to continue. For anyone who thought Covid-19 was the enemy, Dr. Kory’s book will leave no doubt that the true adversary in this war is a collective cabal of power-hungry elites who put profits over people and will stop at nothing in their quest for control.

“Dr. Pierre Kory is one of the heroic figures of our time; a courageous physician who sacrificed career, reputation, friendships, status, and livelihood for the health of his patients and humanity.”
—Robert F. Kennedy Jr., founder of Children’s Health Defense and author of The Real Anthony Fauci
“We will never know how many people would be alive today had the medical establishment taken their blinders off, opened their minds, and listened to doctors who had the courage and compassion to actually treat COVID patients. Instead, heroes like Dr. Pierre Kory were ridiculed, vilified, censored, and professionally cancelled. Dr. Kory’s must-read book is a fast-paced, engaging firsthand account of what went terribly wrong in our medical response to the pandemic. We must learn from his experience and use his insights to repair our health system that has been corrupted by Big Pharma and the hubris of those in power.”
—Senator Ron Johnson
“Dr. Pierre Kory’s book, The War on Ivermectin, is an exceptional contribution to the literature that has emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic. It provides insight into little-known facts about the pandemic and is written in a captivating fashion that mimics Dr. Kory’s entertaining manner of speaking. The book highlights how widespread adoption of Dr. Kory’s work could have saved countless lives. By reading this book, you will deepen your understanding of the fraudulent practices associated with discrediting ivermectin and discover why it is essential to have access to this safe and effective therapy for potential future parasite or severe viral infections.”
—Dr. Joseph Mercola, founder of mercola.com, the world’s premier natural medicine site
“In 2020, when Dr. Pierre Kory told America that steroids were efficacious for COVID-19 pneumonia, every regulatory authority in the world said not to use them. Within months, the world followed Kory. Later that year he appeared on the Senate floor and advocated for every acutely ill patient to get a chance to survive COVID-19 with a “miracle” drug, ivermectin. He was at the epicenter of what became the greatest tragedy of therapeutic nihilism in the history of our country. America lost over a million souls to the virus and virtually all of them were denied this safe and effective compound. The War on Ivermectin can only be told by Kory, a man with a drug the biopharmaceutical complex tried to destroy because they knew it would end the pandemic. It is a powerful vision of courage and strength overcoming adversity to save as many as possible. Against all odds, Dr. Kory and his band of brothers, the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance, fought with the alacrity of a rebel squadron against a ruthless, limitless empire bent on malice for the world. This book is a must-read for this time and all time. Kory and his indomitable spirit, the FLCCC, and every doctor, nurse, and patient blessed by the wonder drug ivermectin touched the currency of a dark war the world cannot possibly understand.”
—Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH, author of The Courage to Face COVID-19: Preventing Hospitalization and Death While Battling the Bio-Pharmaceutical Complex
“Dr. Pierre Kory’s testimony before the US State Senate in December 2020 changed my life. As a medical doctor and external consultant to the World Health Organization, it amazed me that an experienced US doctor should have to beg politicians for permission to use little old ivermectin—a cheap and essential Nobel prize-winning medicine, on the WHO’s list of essential medicines, with an immaculate safety record. Ivermectin is the key to revealing all the lies we’ve been told about COVID. The War on Ivermectin is a tale of corruption, censorship, and criminal intent, and no one was more on the front line during COVID and the ivermectin wars than Dr. Pierre Kory and Dr. Paul Marik. This personal account by Pierre about how the evidence on ivermectin was attacked and buried for three years by an anti-human Big Pharma cabal is so rich and detailed, it will enthrall the most knowledgeable on the matter, and blow the minds of those new to it. The genie is now out of the bottle. The war on ivermectin is a war on humanity. In my opinion, the most important thing that Pierre’s written experience reveals is that when science and reason fail, and when the enemy is all-powerful, there is no better way to navigate life than with our hearts. That said, there is no bigger heart on this battlefield than that of dear Dr. Pierre Kory who may have lost a few jobs in the COVID years but has gained the love and respect of millions.”
—Tess Lawrie, MBBCh, PhD, director of The Evidence-Based Medicine Consultancy and founder of the World Council for Health
“Dr. Pierre Kory has been a tireless truth seeker and advocate for early COVID treatment from the beginning of the pandemic. In The War on Ivermectin, he powerfully documents the deep-seated corruption and relentless propaganda that led to the greatest humanitarian catastrophe in history. As important as it is to acknowledge the lives saved by his advocacy, it is also critical to recognize the carnage that continues to this day despite the herculean efforts of Dr. Kory and a small but steadfast army of warriors like him. In deftly exposing the systemic corruption in our medical systems and media, he has solidified his place among COVID pandemic heroes. I applaud his courage and tenacity, and I highly recommend this important book.”
—Aseem Malhotra, MBChB, cardiologist and author of The 21-Day Immunity Plan
“It’s now three years after the start of the pandemic and we know from over ninety-five independent studies that ivermectin is one of the most effective drugs for treating COVID-19. The one person who deserves the most credit for bringing this drug to the public’s attention very early on is Dr. Pierre Kory. This book chronicles in great detail what happens to a courageous doctor who speaks the truth and calls for ‘letting doctors be doctors.’ I have the utmost respect for Dr. Kory, and I’m sure you will too after you read his story.”
—Steve Kirsch, founder of COVID-19 Early Treatment Fund (CETF) and Vaccine Safety Research Foundation (VSRF)
“A highly readable and fascinating memoir about the unfortunate demise of evidence-based medicine into what Dr. Kory calls ‘evidence-based mania.’ The War on Ivermectin is an insider’s account about how, starting in March of 2020, best medical practices were displaced by corruption, blindness, and corporate greed. Highly recommended.”
—Jennifer Margulis, PhD, investigative journalist and award-winning author of Your Baby, Your Way and coauthor with Dr. Paul Thomas of the #1 Amazon bestselling book, The Vaccine-Friendly Plan
“This book should be made into a sinister action movie! Dr. Kory has elegantly captured a gripping drama where ivermectin is the main character in a dark and complicated plot line. As the story unfolds, a larger pattern of deceit and callous carelessness is revealed that will forever change your view of how the so-called “healthcare” system actually works. Although the movie ends as a cliffhanger (will the protagonist eventually prevail?), it points the way to reclaiming your own agency in your health and medical outcomes, and provides much needed hope which leaps from these pages as you are introduced to the many doctors who truly care, actually follow the evidence, and are using their time to make this world a better place.”
—Chris Martenson, PhD, founder and CEO of Peak Prosperity and author of The Crash Course
“The COVID-19 pandemic changed the world. Among the most profound changes was a coup by public health bureaucrats against doctors and the traditional practice of medicine. Medical professionals and scientists were told how to think, and those who bristled at the new order, or at the broken logic it dispensed, were ridiculed, censured, and cast out. There was to be one and only one answer to the pandemic—a pair of unprecedented, barely tested therapeutics portrayed to the public as “safe and effective vaccines.” The only hitch in that plan was that these novel therapeutics couldn’t possibly get FDA approval fast enough. Instead, these brand-new shots would need to get Emergency Use Authorization, which, because of the danger of experimenting on the general public, required there be no available alternative. That requirement is why an all-out war has been waged on ivermectin, a drug that safely and effectively treats and prevents COVID but isn’t worth money because it’s no longer under patent. If the truth of ivermectin were ever recognized, it would bring the full criminality of global COVID policy into stark relief. The War on Ivermectin tells this shocking story in vivid detail from the vantage point of Dr. Pierre Kory, a heroic and highly decorated ICU specialist who spent every minute fighting on the front lines of this dirty covert war waged by Pharma and its governmental captives against doctors, patients and all the citizens of Earth.”
