Simple saline solution stops SARS-CoV-2…and maybe all viruses?

More news adding to the evidence that COVID-19 and its associated virus are little more than a media circus, at least when it comes to the gauging the pandemic’s true danger to our health. We already have at least two amazing studies showing vitamins D/E can not only stop/treat COVID-19, but are also at least … Read more

Both “long” COVID-19 and CFS are likely caused by hypometabolism

A good study that examines the remarkable parallels between the so-called “long” COVID-19 (i.e. chronic display of symptoms associated with COVID-19) and the (in)famous chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Namely, increases inflammation, excessive glycolysis, suppressed mitochondrial function and decreased synthesis of ATP. Despite all of these known signs of both pathologies, no study so-far (including the … Read more

Face masks (at best) ineffective against SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19 and flu

A series of studies, some of them covering viruses other than SARS-CoV-2, yet the findings of all of them are the same – no statistically significant protective effect of face masks, and, in some cases, possibly increased rates of infection (see first study below). https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-facemasks-idUSKBN27Y1YW https://www.acpjournals.org/doi/10.7326/M20-6817 “…A total of 3030 participants were randomly assigned to … Read more

Glycine has a universal anti-viral effect

While the study below does not go as far as to say that glycine would be an appropriate intervention for the current COVID-19 pandemic, it does describe an anti-viral mechanism for glycine that is (at least in theory) applicable to ALL viruses. Namely, glycine prevents for formation of capsids, without which viruses are unstable and … Read more

Obesity “paradox” strikes again – protection against COVID-19

I suspect this one will not go down will with the “lean is always good” crowd, which consists predominantly of members of the medical profession. Aside from all the health risks of obesity for pretty much any chronic disease, the news over the last 6 months have been replete with warning from all kinds of … Read more

Suppressed immunity, not viruses (HPV), may be the cause of (skin) cancer

Recently, I posted some threads in regards to immunosuppression and cancer. Here are two that provide a good overview and tie together the immunosuppressive effects of PUFA, estrogen, and cortisol with the protective effects of vitamin A, E, D, progesterone, etc. PUFA are immunosuppressive, fasting and protein restriction (possibly) even more so Vitamin D may … Read more
