STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • According to conservationists and wildlife experts, the plan to vaccinate the global population against COVID-19 will have a devastating environmental impact, as the vaccine adjuvant squalene is made from shark liver oil
  • To satisfy a global supply of squalene-containing COVID-19 vaccines, an estimated half-million sharks would have to be slaughtered. The added demand could push certain shark species to the brink of extinction
  • Shark Allies has launched a Change.org petition calling for a ban on shark-derived squalene in COVID-19 vaccines, noting sustainable botanical sources are available
  • A 2001 meta-analysis found squalene-containing seasonal influenza vaccine had a riskier safety profile than nonadjuvanted flu vaccine, and squalene-containing H1N1 vaccines distributed in Europe during the 2009 swine flu pandemic were found to cause narcolepsy
  • While evidence is scarce, some studies have highlighted the possibility of squalene inducing autoimmune problems such as arthritis and lupus when injected

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • While no studies using B vitamins have been performed on COVID-19 patients, researchers stress that, based on B vitamins’ effects on your immune system, immune-competence and red blood cells, supplementation may be a useful adjunct to other prevention and treatment strategies
  • One of the factors that make COVID-19 so dangerous to those with underlying conditions or old age is its ability to overactivate your immune system, triggering a cytokine storm
  • B vitamins — B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9 and B12 — play important roles in cell functioning, energy metabolism and proper immune function, and can play important roles in minimizing your risk of cytokine storm
  • B vitamins are involved in the activation of both the innate and adaptive immune responses. They help reduce proinflammatory cytokine levels, improve respiratory function, maintain endothelial integrity, prevent hypercoagulability and can reduce the length of hospital stays
  • Dietary source for B vitamins are listed, along with suggestions if you need supplementation

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Vitamin D optimization is likely the easiest, least expensive and most beneficial strategy that anyone can do to minimize their risk of COVID-19 and other infections in coming months
  • More than 1 billion individuals worldwide, across all age groups, are deficient in vitamin D, which has now been identified as a significant risk factor for positive COVID-19 status, severe COVID-19 infection and death thereof
  • In Indonesia, people with a vitamin D level between 20 ng/mL and 30 ng/mL had a sevenfold higher risk of death than those with a level above 30 ng/mL. Having a level below 20 ng/mL was associated with a 12 times higher risk of death
  • To improve your immune function and lower your risk of viral infections, you’ll want to raise your vitamin D to a level between 60 ng/mL and 80 ng/mL (150 nmol/L and 200 nmol/L) by fall
  • Vitamin D optimization is particularly important for dark-skinned individuals, as the darker your skin, the more sun exposure you need to raise your vitamin D level, as well as the elderly

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Your metabolic health has a significant impact on COVID-19 severity, and at least 9 in 10 Americans are metabolically unhealthy
  • One of the classic changes associated with insulin resistance, obesity and metabolic syndrome is overactivation of the innate immune system, with decreasing activity in the adaptive immune system
  • When it comes to healthy aging, it’s not your biological age that matters but, rather, your immune and metabolic age, both of which are malleable and can be improved through simple lifestyle changes
  • Research shows that when blood sugar is well-controlled and there’s less glycemic variability, people do better when contracting COVID-19. When they have high levels of glycemic variability, which is indicative of insulin resistance, they fare much worse

It’s normal for a person to experience hair loss: On average, a person can lose up to 100 hairs from his scalp every day. However, while most people grow them back, those with alopecia experience extreme hair loss, either due to diseases like lupus, thyroid issues or diabetes; environmental exposure; medication; or even poor nutrition. In their study, a team from the University of California, Irvine investigated whether alternative treatments can help relieve the condition. Continue reading
