Viral Mutations and the Risk of ‘Second-hand Malnutrition’

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Orthomolecular Medicine News Service, September 13, 2021

by Michael Passwater

OMNS (Sept. 13, 2021) The New York Times recently quoted Michael Osterholm, an expert epidemiologist at the University of Minnesota, acknowledging, “We still are really in the cave ages in terms of understanding how viruses emerge, how they spread, how they start and stop, why they do what they do.” [1] While it is true of many topics that new studies often lead to more questions than answers, this topic has special importance to the human experience. We must accelerate our understanding of the complex interactions between humans and viruses to survive and to improve our experience on Earth.

Fortunately, over the past three decades, brilliant pioneers including Ethan Will Taylor, Melinda Beck, and Caroline Broome have been diligently pointing the way out of the cave. The biochemistry is complicated, the genetics is even more complex, and the terminology is unfamiliar. But the message is too important to hide in a library. It demands attempts to understand and communicate their findings. It may require a shift in thinking, and a shift in actions.

Readers of the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service appreciate the importance of good nutrition to keep our bodies healthy. Let’s shift our attention for a moment to explore the impact of nutrition on an invading virus. [2,3] RNA viruses are responsible for many of the most devastating infectious diseases of our time – Ebola, Dengue, Influenza, Hepatitis C, Polio, Zika, SARS, MERS, and SARS-CoV-2, among others. However, in addition to being so incomplete that they are fully dependent on invading host cells to replicate themselves, RNA viruses are also primitive in ways that make them unstable. Their replication process is rapid, error-prone, and devoid of the nucleic acid and protein folding proof-reading enzymes used by advanced organisms to minimize mutations and mis-translations during nucleic acid replication and protein production. As a result of this instability, truly pure strains of a virus are rarely found in nature. Viruses tend to exist as mixtures of closely related variants, sometimes referred to as a “quasi-species”.

Critical thinking about viruses

This discussion on viruses and COVID-19 is really a blast. Definitely worth listening to.

Is COVID-19 A Hoax?

This is an article reposted from UKColumn.org I thought it to be excellent and in line with other articles posted here by others making smilar arguments.

by Iain Davis, 21st February 2021

Fact checkers and official media talking heads accuse anyone who suggests that “COVID is a hoax” of being COVID deniers, conspiracy theorists and of exhibiting a callous disregard for lives allegedly lost to the disease.

When Piers Corbyn addressed a crowd in Liverpool in October last year, the Liverpool Echo reported his words as follows:

This Covid-19 virus is a hoax. There may have been something around in China, was it the same thing, was it a bio-weapon, who knows. But it was used to unleash the most monstrous power-grab the world has ever seen.

Doctor demonstrates that masks don’t work

There isn’t any type of face mask that protects you or others against nanometre-sized virus-laden particles being spread by breath. Even the full face mask used by spray painters only protects the user. If you are infected you are still expelling infected air. Most masks are a joke in stopping virus particles.

Watch this video.

In fact the prolonged use of the mask means you suffer from oxygen deprivation which causes brain damage. Also you are at risk of suffocation due to the increased levels of carbon dioxide accumulated inside the mask. It rapidly reaches over 5000 ppm which is toxic. What this video: Del Bigtree shows dangerous CO2 levels breathing with masks.
