Common dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) efficiently blocks the interaction between ACE2 cell surface receptor and SARS-CoV-2 spike protein D614, mutants D614G, N501Y, K417N and E484K in vitro

On 11th March 2020, coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, was declared as a global pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). To date, there are rapidly spreading new “variants of concern” of SARS-CoV-2, the United Kingdom (B.1.1.7), the South African (B.1.351) or Brasilian (P.1) variant. All of them contain multiple mutations in the ACE2 receptor recognition site of the spike protein, compared to the original Wuhan sequence, which is of great concern, because of their potential for immune escape. Here we report on the efficacy of common dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) to block protein-protein interaction of spike S1 to the human ACE2 cell surface receptor. This could be shown for the original spike D614, but also for its mutant forms (D614G, N501Y, and mix of K417N, E484K, N501Y) in human HEK293-hACE2 kidney and A549-hACE2-TMPRSS2 lung cells. High molecular weight compounds in the water-based extract account for this effect. Infection of the lung cells using SARS-CoV-2 spike pseudotyped lentivirus particles was efficiently prevented by the extract and so was virus-triggered pro-inflammatory interleukin 6 secretion. Modern herbal monographs consider the usage of this medicinal plant as safe. Thus, the in vitro results reported here should encourage further research on the clinical relevance and applicability of the extract as prevention strategy for SARS-CoV-2 infection.

HEALTH: Blatant suppression — doctors with impeccable credentials are being deplatformed

Might COVID Injections Reduce Lifespan?
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola
July 04, 2021

*** begin quote ***

My problem is not with the vaccine. My problem is with the government, governing bodies and certain people that are obstructing the flow of life saving information and suppressing the truth from people, and then using coercion to force people to take this vaccine. That’s the nefarious part.

The suppression is so blatant and so overt that doctors with impeccable credentials are being deplatformed for just voicing an opinion. And then you couple that together with proven prehospital treatment approaches and protocols that have been proven to reduce hospitalization and death by 85%, and that information is being suppressed.

So here you have a dual censorship where the positive, hopeful, life-saving information is being suppressed and the dangerous outcomes of the vaccination approach is being suppressed. It’s a perfect setup for genocide.”

The Food That Can Downregulate a Metastatic Cancer Gene
Michael Greger M.D. FACLM June 14th, 2021 Volume 54 

  • Women with breast cancer should include the “liberal culinary use of cruciferous vegetables.”

*** begin quote ***

Ovarian cancer. “Cruciferous vegetable…[intake] significantly favor[ed] survival”, whereas “a survival disadvantage was shown for meats.” Milk also appeared to double the risk of dying. Here are the survival graphs. Eight years out, for example, about 40 percent of ovarian cancer patients who averaged meat or milk every day were dead, compared to only about 20 percent who just had meat or milk a few times a week at most.

Now, it could just be that the fat and cholesterol in the meat increased circulating estrogen levels, or because of meat’s growth hormones, or all the carcinogens. And galactose, the sugar naturally found in milk, may also be directly toxic to the ovary, and dairy has got all the hormones too. However, the lowering of risk with broccoli and the increasing of risk with meat and dairy are also consistent with the CD36 mechanism of cancer spread we’ve been talking about.

*** end quote ***

Hmmm, docs can NOT “prove” that broccoli is a miracle anti-cancer “drug”.

But, low cost side effect free “treatment”?  How much proof does one need?

Even if they’re wrong and they can’t say why there’s a broccoli effect, why not just jump ahead of the “proof” in case they are wright?

Doesn’t seem much downside!

HEALTH: Decide about the WuFlu vax?

FROM AN EMAIL TO A FRIEND:

I sympathize with everyone because “knowing” what the right thing to do is currently impossible.  There is so much “noise” from “experts” that seems to change with the time of day. 

As far as healthy children taking the new “vaccines”, that seems “unnecessary” given that the data suggests they don’t get the WuFlu and if they do it’s very mild.  But, each parent must decide what risks they will and won’t take.

I’ll never criticize anyone who makes one choice or another.  You pays your money and takes your chances. 

For me personally, I’m not very keen on the whole decision process.  Seems unsubstantiated and rushed. Even my doctors have said privately “wait and see”.  One suggested that with my various blood chemistries (i.e., high levels of D, B1, C; lack of any severe medical problems) that I may be naturally immune. (Surprised me?). 

I’m not an anti-vaxer by any means  — just finished the shingles vax and planning to get the pneumonia vax in mid-Jun  — but i never get the flu vax because it’s low benefit for the risk  — but I think one must be extremely careful about what we do is for the right reasons.  There’s no undo button.

Every time I hear a “public service announcement” by anybody, I think of ex-EPA Christie Whitman: “Ground Zero Air Is Safe” and all the mesothelioma lawyers on TV.
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/sep/10/epa-head-wrong-911-air-safe-new-york-christine-todd-whitman 

So to, I try to be charitable to those who have drank the Kool Aid, taken the blue pill or are making imho a “big mistake”.  I’m not a doctor, lawyer, or Indian Chief and I could be very wrong.  If I suffer harm following my opinions, then I know who to blame.  If I follow the herd, ignore my own opinions, and harm befalls me, then who do I blame.

I can state my opinions and reasons relatively firmly but everyone has to chart their own course.

As far as interference with God’s design, that’s so far above my pay grade that I can’t see it.  I do think that we are like children playing with guns  — we know so little, we don’t know what we don’t know, and have no concept of the consequences  — it’s a bad gamble.

In twenty years, maybe the TV commercials will be “if you took the J&J vaccine and had all your hair ingrown, you or your estate can be eligible for a large cash settlement.”

HEALTH: Reopening Texas ‘100 Percent’ Had “No Impact”

https://www.allsides.com/news/2021-05-21-1458/new-study-confirms-reopening-texas-100-percent-had-no-discernible-impact-covid

A New Study Confirms That Reopening Texas ‘100 Percent’ Had No Discernible Impact on COVID-19 Cases or Deaths
Reason (analysis) 

“Anthony Fauci, Biden’s top COVID-19 adviser, said lifting mask mandates ‘is really quite risky,’ because ‘when you pull back on measures of public health, invariably you’ve seen a surge’ in cases and deaths. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said she had a ‘recurring feeling’ of ‘impending doom,’ warning that premature relaxation of ‘public health prevention strategies’ could lead to a ‘fourth surge.’ More than two months later, the public health disaster predicted by Abbott’s critics has not materialized.”

But putting on my “infectious disease” costume, white coat and all, and I think it is factual to say that we don’t know squat about the WuFlu.

And certainly should be taking “medical advice” from new readers, celebrities, Gooferment bureaucrats, or politicians.

Safest is to decide for yourself, with input from YOUR doctor, what risks you want to take.

I have; I urge you to do likewise.

  • Researchers used extensive medical and fitness data from UK and US volunteers
  • This included blood test results, daily steps taken and information on their DNA
  • This was fed into an artificial intelligence system to calculate maximum lifespan 
  • The authors found that resilience and biological age play key roles in lifespan
  • Finding that the maximum a human can live naturally is from 120 to 150 years

How Common Are Muscle Side Effects from Statins?
Michael Greger M.D. FACLM May 3rd, 2021 Volume 53

*** begin quote ***

When asked why, most former statin users, or discontinuers, cited muscle pain, a side effect, as the primary reason for stopping the pills. By far the most prevalent and important adverse events, up to 72 percent of all statin side effects are statin-associated muscle symptoms. Taking coenzyme Q10 supplements as a treatment for statin-associated muscle symptoms was a good idea in theory, but they don’t actually appear to help. Normally, side-effect symptoms go away when you stop the drug, but sometimes can linger a year or more. But there is evidently growing evidence that statin intolerance is predominantly psychosocial, not pharmacological. Wait; meaning maybe it’s mostly just in people’s heads?

‘Real Time With Bill Maher’ Cancels This Week’s Show After HBO Host Tests Positive For Covid-19

EXCLUSIVE: HBO has scrapped this week’s episode of Real Time with Bill Maher after the comedian tested positive for Covid-19. Maher, who is vaccinated and asymptomatic, tested positive during the premium cable network’s weekly PCR testing ahead of the show.

It is a blow for the late-night show, which was set to entertain astrophysicist and StarTalkpodcaster Neil deGrasse Tyson as the top-of-show interview guest, and World War Z author Max Brooks and Hardcore History podcast host Dan Carlin as panelists.

“The Friday, May 14th taping of Real Time with Bill Maher has been cancelled. Bill tested positive during weekly staff PCR testing for COVID. He is fully vaccinated and as a result is asymptomatic and feels fine. Real Time production has taken every precaution following COVID CDC guidelines. No other staff or crew members have tested positive at this time. The show will be rescheduled at a later date,” an HBO spokeswoman told Deadline.

Halt Covid Vaccine, Prominent Scientist Tells CDC

Molecular Biologist and Toxicologist Calls to Halt Covid Vaccine

Hi, my name is Dr. Janci Chunn Lindsay. I hold a doctorate in biochemistry and molecular biology from the University of Texas, and have over 30 years of scientific experience, primarily in toxicology and mechanistic biology.

In the mid-1990s, I aided the development of a temporary human contraceptive vaccine which ended up causing unintended autoimmune ovarian destruction and sterility in animal test models. Despite efforts against this and sequence analyses that did not predict this.

I strongly feel that all the gene therapy vaccines must be halted immediately due to safety concerns on several fronts.

*** and ***

First, there is a credible reason to believe that the Covid vaccines will cross-react with the syncytin and reproductive proteins in sperm, ova, and placenta, leading to impaired fertility and impaired reproductive and gestational outcomes. 

*** and ***

Secondly, all of the gene therapies [Covid vaccines] are causing coagulopathy. [Coagulopathy when the body’s blood clotting system is impaired.] This is not isolated to one manufacturer. And this is not isolated to one age group. 

*** and ***

Third, there is strong evidence for immune escape, and that inoculation under pandemic pressure with these leaky vaccines is driving the creation of more lethal mutants that are both newly infecting a younger age demographic, and causing more Covid-related deaths across the population than would have occurred without intervention. That is, there is evidence that the vaccines are making the pandemic worse.

*** end quote ***

My concern is that “we” don’t know what we are doing with this tool.  

It’s really mischaracterization to call it a “vaccine”.  We need a new word to distinguish it from what we know as a vaccine.

Take care.

YMMV

The Grim Reaper Uses a Stealth Vitamin B1 Deficiency (Beriberi), Hidden Behind the Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic

*** begin quote ***

Six months into the thiamine pandemic, on September 28, 2020, an obscure letter published in the British Medical Journal penned by a retired Australian physician stated:

“Reported prolonged symptoms among COVID ‘long-haulers’ are the same as the known symptoms of thiamine (vitamin B1) deficiency disease, called beriberi,” and that “the pandemic we are witnessing is actually the result of a combination of a somewhat more severe virus than we have hitherto experienced, and a generally poor state of nutrition in the community as a whole.”

Many Americans may have heard of the other vitamin deficiency diseases, scurvy (vitamin C), pellagra (niacin), rickets (vitamin D), but beriberi (thiamine or vitamin B1) they are not familiar with whatsoever.

The best was Dr. Sanjay Gupta who pretty much said that if we wear masks (i.e., listen to them)—then the variants won’t appear or develop. If we don’t, then they will pop up. They’re still clinging to the mask absolutism like grim death, aren’t they? It’s not a shield. You all know this. You can still catch COVID while wearing a mask, but let’s move on to yet another point that shreds the ‘fear for your lives’ narrative. States that are still under lockdown are seeing COVID cases spike. Those that have reopened have seen a decline. The Today Show noted this, while The Daily Caller decided to comment on this by quoting the late great Rush Limbaugh, who noted such incidents as this as a “random act of journalism.”

They sometimes go as far as labelling another perspective as a “conspiracy theory” despite the fact that there is ample, credible evidence to support the claims of that perspective. Do people simply believe things because they feel that everybody else believes it too? What are the social and cultural implications of not being in alignment with the majority?

2. The Virus Has A 99.95 Survival Rate.

At the end of the day, there are ample concerns about the COVID vaccine, its effectiveness, the safety of it in the short term and in the long term. Despite these concerns, the vaccine is heavily marketed as unquestionably safe and effective. A fifth category could have been added to this article, and that’s the ridicule and acknowledgments of other, cheap effective treatments that have shown to have a tremendous amount of success. It seems these treatments would have rendered the vaccine useless and unnecessary, but the vaccine is a multiple billion dollar product.

Mask Mandates Do Not Save Lives
By Spike Hampson

*** begin quote ***

Although some studies have concluded that masks help stop the spread of COVID-19, usually they have failed to replicate real-world situations.  A common approach is to evaluate the effectiveness of mask material at stopping the expulsion or intake of the aerosols presumed to be the airborne carriers of the virus.  Useful information, perhaps, but at this stage, what we need to know is whether the widespread use of masks is measurably reducing the risk of death from the disease.  To continue requiring the use of masks makes sense only if there is compelling data that death rates are lower for people who wear masks than it is for people who do not.

First, I am not an anti-vax-er.  I have just taken the first of two shingles vaxes, plain to get my pneumonia vax updated next month, and have had all the childhood vaxes. BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), I NEVER get the flu vax, and in general I’m very aware that vaxes are a tradeoff of risk versus reward.  

For example, the polio vax is a no brainer.  I have personally seen first hand the devestation that polio can cause. (RIP cousin William!)  So the “tradeoff” is very lopsided.

For example, the flu vax is questionable.  It’s usually at best 30% effective and often usless if the drug companies don’t anticipate the right strain. So to me, the “tradeoff” is also very lopsided in the opposite direction.

Now every decision with regard to vaxes is very personal.  There’s no “right” or “wrong”. 

That being said, now every bit of information on the vaxes is POLITICAL!

The dikw (i.e., data, information, knowledge, wisdom) about them is based by the “narrative” or political pov of the source.  And that should NOT be permitted.

The data should be reported straightforwardly and as accurately as possible. Facts are not up to discussion.  “Today, the CDC reports X fatalities.” Should not require a long investigation of the causes.  The whole “died with covid” versus “died from covid” or even worse “died from what we guess is covid” or even worse “died from what we think might be covid” is completely unacceptable.

HEALTH: When Covid-19 Swept Through a Country in the Mid-1970s

Dr. X writes of a peculiar disease that swept through his country inn the 1960s and 1970s and was prevalent in many geographical areas. At first it was only 50 patients. Then a few years later it was more than ten-thousand patients.

HEALTH: Which Brands and Sources of Rice Have the Least Arsenic? | NutritionFacts.org

Which Brands and Sources of Rice Have the Least Arsenic? | NutritionFacts.org:

Not all rice producers have been so dismissive, though. After a subsequent Consumer Reports exposé, one rice company detailed “how it is taking matters into its own hands.” Lundberg Farms started testing hundreds of samples of its rice to share the results with the FDA. “We’re committed to providing safe food,” said the CEO, “to really listening to our consumers, and dealing with this problem very openly….” Lundberg Farms isn’t just sharing its results with the FDA, but with everyone.

Sounds like the FDA is in the pocket of Big Rice.

Does Big Rice get federal Gooferment “parity payments”?

If so, I know how to change their behavior.  Don’t you?

HEALTH: Hygiene Theater, like Security Theater, is a waste of attention, time, and resources

Surface Cleaning in Response to COVID-19 is Hygiene Theater

*** begin quote ***

Joseph G. Allen, an associate professor and director of the Healthy Buildings program at Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Charles Haas, professor of environmental engineering at Drexel University and Linsey C. Marr, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Virginia Tech, write in The Washington Post:

We don’t have a single documented case of covid-19 transmission from surfaces. Not one.

So why, then, are we spending a small fortune to deep clean our offices, schools, subways and buses?

*** end quote ***

Just like the Gooferment, who desires to be seen as “leading”, sends up down a rat hole of wasted effort.

Gooferment is just immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy.

HEALTH: On the Reaction to Covid-19

(Don Boudreaux) Tweet Here’s a letter to a new correspondent: Ms. Tolbert: I did indeed see my friend and former colleague Omar Al-Ubaydli’s recent op-ed decrying what he believes to be humanity’s under- estimation of the seriousness of Covid-19.

as I read the evidence, it tells me three things: (1) lockdowns do not work to reduce Covid deaths; (2) lockdowns fuel other healthproblems, including ones that are fatal; (3) lockdowns create enormous economic hardships for hundreds of millions of people.

*** end quote ***

Yes, it seems that the “experts” don’t know as much about the WuFlu as they proclaim they do.

That’s all right.  Now that Sleepy Joe has stolen the election, we will see if my prediction that Covid disappears in the next 90 days.

Its only purpose was to defeat the “Bad Orange Man” and having done that, it’s no longer need in the narrative.

Argh!

HEALTH: Study disputes the efficacy of masks

Landmark Study Finds Masks Are Ineffective
By Joseph Mercola

December 4, 2020

*** begin quote ***

Our results suggest that the recommendation to wear a surgical mask when outside the home among others did not reduce, at conventional levels of statistical significance, the incidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection in mask wearers in a setting where social distancing and other public health measures were in effect, mask recommendations were not among those measures, and community use of masks was uncommon.”

*** end quote ***

So why does the political caste continue lecture “We, The Sheeple” on masks?

And, why do the sheeple obey?

One step closer to the trains to the camps!

Ideally how much trans fat should we eat a day?

Zero, and the same goes for saturated fat and cholesterol.

Guess it’s YET ANOTHER thing one should do.

“NO! … Try not! … Do or do not… there is no try.” (To do it justice, you must say the word try with all the revulsion and disgust you can put on it. Like you were talking about a rapist, a child murderer, or a politician!) — Yoda (Fictional character from George Lucas’s “Star Wars” movie)

HEALTH: Being “plant based” is hard!

Flashback Friday: What’s the “Natural” Human Diet?
Michael Greger M.D. FACLM October 2nd, 2020
What can our nutrient requirements, metabolism, and physiology tell us about what we should be eating?

*** begin quote ***

If there’s one takeaway from our studies of ancestral diets, perhaps it’s that diets based largely on plant foods promote health and longevity.

*** end quote ***

Wish it was easier to be “plant based”.  After SEVEN DECADES of eating the “Standard American Diet”, it’s hard to change habits.
