Mild Obesity Can Double Your Risk for COVID Complications

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Even mild obesity may raise the risk of COVID-19 severity, calling into question current United Kingdom guidelines that only classify severe obesity as a risk factor
  • Patients with mild obesity had a 2.5 times greater risk of respiratory failure and a five times greater risk of being admitted to an ICU compared to non-obese patients
  • Those with a BMI of 35 and over were also 12 times more likely to die from COVID-19
  • Inflammation triggered by obesity may be responsible for a threefold greater risk of pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lungs) in COVID-19 patients who are obese
  • Dysregulated lipid synthesis triggered by obesity may aggravate inflammation in the lungs, contributing to increased disease severity during respiratory viral infections
  • Processed foods, junk foods and soft drinks are key culprits in the rise of obesity and chronic diseases that have a key role to play in COVID-19 deaths

Fermented Foods May Lower Your Risk of COVID-19 Death

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Countries that consume higher amounts of traditionally fermented foods have lower COVID-19 mortality rates. According to German researchers, significant changes in the microbiome caused by modern life and low fermented food consumption may have increased the spread or severity of the disease
  • For each gram-per-day increase in the average national consumption of fermented vegetables, the mortality risk for COVID-19 decreased by 35.4%
  • A review of seven small clinical trials found probiotics and/or prebiotics may be helpful for those struggling with depression and anxiety
  • Two types of gut bacteria in particular, Coprococcus and Dialister bacteria, have been shown to be “consistently depleted” in individuals diagnosed with clinical depression
  • Gut bacteria associated with good mental health synthesize the dopamine metabolite 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid, while those associated with depression produce γ-aminobutyric acid

NYC Doctor Highlights Importance of Vitamin D Optimization

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Research shows COVID-19 patients with a vitamin D level between 20 ng/mL (50 nmol/L) and 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L) had a sevenfold higher risk of death than those with a level above 30 ng/mL
  • Having a vitamin D level below 20 ng/mL was associated with a 12 times higher risk of death from COVID-19
  • Other research suggests your risk of developing and dying from COVID-19 virtually disappears once your vitamin D level gets above 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L). To ignore this seems foolish in the extreme, especially since vitamin D supplementation is both safe and inexpensive
  • Other nutrient deficiencies may be at play if you’re having a hard time improving your vitamin D level. One of them is magnesium, which is required for the conversion of vitamin D into its active form
  • Recent research shows you need 244% more oral vitamin D if you’re not also taking magnesium and vitamin K2

Your Iron Levels Could Be a Key to Slow Aging and Long Life

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Iron is essential to life, but data show that too much is associated with aging and a shortened life and health spans — the total years lived in good health
  • High iron levels also increase the availability of free iron, which promotes heart cell death, leading to impaired heart function and mitochondrial dysfunction
  • Excess iron affects blood pressure and glycemic control. Levels build with increased intake and the body’s poor ability to excrete extra iron
  • Blood donation, or therapeutic phlebotomy for those unable to donate, is a quick and simple way to manage iron levels. Get a yearly ferritin and GGT test to measure your levels

14 Patents in Every Fake Bite of Impossible Burger

http://

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Impossible Foods, which made headlines for its meatless burgers that “bleed” like real meat, holds 14 patents, with at least 100 more pending
  • Impossible Foods should be called “Impossible Patents,” according to Seth Itzkan of Soil4Climate, who suggests fake meat products are destroying the environment by perpetuating a harmful reliance on genetically engineered grains while accelerating soil loss and detracting from regenerative agriculture
  • Impossible Foods’ products are heavily processed and produced in laboratories — not grown in or found in nature
  • Impossible Foods has even taken aim at regenerative farming practices, which are promoting optimal nutrition and health while at the same time helping to prevent pollution and restore damaged ecosystems
  • Impossible Foods’ numerous patents reveal that their products are driven by profits, and perhaps the ultimate goal is to replace real meat altogether with a highly lucrative patented product

Striking Decline of Premature Births and SIDS During COVID

http://

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • During March and April this year, while most of the world enforced more or less strict stay-at-home orders, premature births plummeted by 90% in Denmark and 73% in Ireland, and nearly halved in Canada. Unusual reductions have also been reported in other countries, including Australia, the Netherlands and the U.S.
  • It’s still unknown why the premature birth rate has dropped so dramatically. Doctors speculate it may be because pregnant women have had more rest and less work stress, greater family support, more sleep, fewer infections and reduced air pollution
  • One factor that has not been openly addressed is the reduction in maternal vaccinations. Health officials have expressed concern over declining infant vaccination rates during the pandemic, so maternal vaccination rates may also have dropped
  • The death rate among children in the U.S. has also mysteriously dropped during the lockdowns, from an average of 700 per week to fewer than 500 per week during the months of April and May. Most of this change is attributed to a decline in infant mortality
  • Doctors and researchers suggest reduced vaccination rates during the pandemic may have played a role by reducing the number of infants dying from SIDS

Gates Tries to Justify Side Effects of Fast-Tracked Vaccine

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Bill Gates warns you will probably need multiple doses of any given COVID-19 vaccine for it to be effective
  • The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine (currently known only as mRNA-1273), caused systemic side effects in 80% of Phase 1 participants receiving the 100 microgram (mcg) dose
  • Side effects ranged from fatigue (80%), chills (80%), headache (60%) and myalgia or muscle pain (53%). After the second dose, 100% of participants in the 100-mcg group experienced side effects
  • In the 250-mcg dose group, 100% of participants suffered side effects after both the first and second doses. Three of the 14 participants (21%) in the 250-mcg group suffered “one or more severe events”
  • According to Gates, the side effects are largely due to the high dosages Moderna had to use to achieve the desired antibody levels. But if high dosages are required to create a robust-enough immune response, and higher dosages also cause systemic side effects in most or all people, the safety of the global vaccination campaign may be questionable
