This is a ramble, of the threads of thought which are on my mind. In time this may be edited and streamlined, but presently I feel it paints a picture that may help others. It is clear something deep is happening in the world, bigger than just COVID in my opinion. So it will start with a long article about using H2O2 and wander on from there.
Surviving the Coronavirus Disease, How Hydrogen Peroxide Works
By Paul Ebeling on April 9, 2020
Hydrogen Peroxide Has a Long History of Medical Use
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) consists of a water molecule (H2O) with an extra oxygen atom.
The oxygen inactivates viral pathogens by breaking down the viral structure
Additionally, our immune cells produce hydrogen peroxide. This is in part how your immune system kills infected cells. Hydrogen peroxide therapy aids aids immune cells to perform their natural function more effectively.
H202 is on the shelf at the local grocery or drug store for $1.00 a bottle.
The Big Q: Can an inexpensive and easy to administer at-home treatment treat the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2?
The Big A: Dr. Thomas Levy says Yes. The remedy is hydrogen peroxide H202, aerosolized in any standard nebulizer.
It’s worth keeping in mind that while the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions are at increased risk of serious complications and death, the overall mortality rate of COVID-19 is quite low, and very similar to the flu.
A compilation of reported mortality statistics from around the world can be found in the paper,“Likelihood of Survival of Coronavirus Disease 2019,” published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases, 30 March 2020.
For the latest up to the min COVID-19 resources click here.
To perform this treatment, you need but two items: a nebulizer with a face mask that covers your mouth and nose that emits a fine mist, and common household 3% hydrogen peroxide, available at most grocery stores and pharmacies for less than $1.
However, you may choose to purchase the more expensive food grade hydrogen peroxide as it doesn’t have any stabilizers in it. Stabilizers are proprietary and companies do not need to disclose them on the label, but some can be problematic.
Typically food grade peroxide comes in concentrations higher than 3% so if you chose it your will need to dilute it down to 3% to use it.
Viruses are not “alive” they need a live host in which they can infect live cells that then replicate the viral DNA and RNA. Once a cell is infected, newly replicated viruses exit the cell and move on to the next cell to duplicate the process.
So, when they talk about “killing” a virus, they are talking about inactivating them by breaking down their structure. This is why soap works so well. Coronaviruses are held together by a lipid (fatty) coating. Soap, being amphipathic, meaning it can dissolve most molecules dissolves this fat membrane, causing the virus to fall apart and become harmless.
More specifically, the fat-like substances in soap are structurally similar to the lipids found in the virus membrane, so the soap molecules compete with and replace the fats in the membrane. In so doing, the “fatty glue” holding the virus together dissolves.
Hydrogen peroxide works in a similar way. As noted by Dr. Levy, “the way to control any viral infection is not to kill the virus; rather, the infected cells that have been turned into viral factories must be killed.”
Our immune cells actually produce hydrogen peroxide. This is in part how the immune system kills cells that have been infected with a virus. By killing the infected cell, viral reproduction is stopped. So, hydrogen peroxide therapy is in essence only aiding our immune cells to perform their natural function more effectively.
Hydrogen peroxide is also a Key redox signaling agent.
“At the low physiological levels in the nanomolar range, H2O2 is the major agent signaling through specific protein targets, which engage in metabolic regulation and stress responses to support cellular adaptation to a changing environment and stress …
Recent methodological advances permit the assessment of molecular interactions of specific ROS [reactive oxygen species] molecules with specific targets in redox signaling pathways.
Accordingly, major advances have occurred in understanding the role of these oxidants in physiology and disease, including the nervous, cardiovascular and immune systems, skeletal muscle and metabolic regulation as well as ageing and cancer.
In the past, unspecific elimination of ROS by use of low molecular mass antioxidant compounds was not successful in counteracting disease initiation and progression in clinical trials. However, controlling specific ROS-mediated signaling pathways by selective targeting offers a perspective for a future of more refined redox medicine.”
In short, hydrogen peroxide is a major ROS, but while ROS are typically thought of as “all bad,” this is a gross oversimplification.
As noted: “Steady-state physiological flux of H2O2 to specific protein targets leads to reversible oxidation, thereby altering protein activity, localization and interactions, which contributes to orchestration of various processes in cells and organs, including cell proliferation, differentiation, migration and angiogenesis. This state of low-level H2O2 maintenance and its associated physiological redox signaling is called ‘oxidative eustress.’”
Contrary to oxidative stress or oxidative distress, oxidative eustress denotes an oxidative challenge that has positive or beneficial effects and is essential in redox signaling.
The Studies: What they tells us
The most relevant study is 1 that was done earlier this year in the Journal of Hospital Infection. They studies 0.5% hydrogen peroxide, 6X weaker than the 3% typically used, and found that it killed human coronaviruses and SARS corona viruses and MERS.
Another study, published in the American Journal of Infection Control in Y 2009, assessed the efficacy of vaporized hydrogen peroxide against viruses on various surfaces, finding exposure to hydrogen peroxide vapor at a concentration of 10 parts per million resulted in 99% inactivation after 2.5 mins.
And a Y 2014 study in the Journal of Hospital Infection found hydrogen peroxide vapor eliminated an array of viruses on stainless steel, including human adenovirus 1, transmissible gastroenteritis coronavirus of pigs (TGEV, a SARS-CoV surrogate), avian influenza virus and swine influenza virus.
According to the authors, “Hydrogen peroxide vapor was virucidal against feline calicivirus, adenovirus, TGEV and avian influenza virus at the lowest vaporized volume tested (25 mL).” Vaporized hydrogen peroxide was found to completely inactivate a range of exotic animal viruses in a Y 1997 study as well.
Hydrogen peroxide’s ability to inactivate dangerous infectious viruses has also been highlighted in vaccine science. As noted in a Y 2016 study in the Vaccine journal, 3% hydrogen peroxide completely and irreversibly inactivated the rabies virus within 2 hrs, thus reducing time and cost of the inactivation process required for the making of a rabies vaccine, which contains inactivated rabies virus.
The most convenient to receive H202 is to inhale its mist, using a nebulizer a small, handheld device that converts liquid into a very fine mist.
The microscopic mist, similar to smoke or vapor, can be comfortably inhaled deep into the nostrils, sinuses and lungs. While nebulizers have routinely been used by asthmatics to deliver medication into their lungs, this delivery system affects not only the lungs but your entire body.
As noted in the Y 2002 review article, “Pulmonary Drug Delivery Systems: Recent Developments and Prospects,” “Targeting drug delivery into the lungs has become one of the most important aspects of systemic … drug delivery systems.“
In the case of respiratory infections, the nebulizer has the added advantage of delivering the hydrogen peroxide right to the areas most affected by respiratory viruses: the sinuses, throat, bronchial tract and lungs.
Dr. Levy writes: “Effective hydrogen peroxide nebulization quite literally, ‘chops the head off of the snake,’ and the virus present elsewhere in the body can then readily be mopped up when the new virus influx has been terminated,”
It should be kept in mind that hydrogen peroxide kills pathogens very readily upon contact in an open wound. It should, therefore, be understandable why putting a fine mist of hydrogen peroxide in all the areas of maximal viral replication promptly puts the body on a pathway to rapid healing.”
Hydrogen Peroxide Protocol
To prevent an infection from taking hold, begin treatment at 1st signs of symptoms. Commercially available 3% hydrogen peroxide is fine for this purpose, and can be used without dilution.
If the undiluted solution stings or burns your nose, you can dilute it up to 50% with pure water. Even lower concentrations can be used, although the antiviral effects will be reduced at lower concentrations.
If already presenting with runny nose or sore throat, Dr. Levy recommends using the nebulizer for 10 to 15 mins 4X a day until the symptoms are relieved. You can also nebulized hydrogen peroxide for prevention and maintenance, which may be advisable during flu season, or while the COVID-19 pandemic is in full swing.
He notes: “As it is a completely non-toxic therapy, nebulization can be administered as often as desired. If done on a daily basis at least once, a very positive impact on bowel and gut function will often be realized as killing the chronic pathogen colonization present in most noses and throats stops the 24/7 swallowing of these pathogens and their associated toxins.
If daily prevention is not a practical option, the effectiveness of this treatment is optimized when somebody sneezes in your face or you finally get off of the plane after a trans-Atlantic flight. Do not wait for initial symptoms. Just nebulize at your 1st opportunity.”
Eat healthy, Be healthy, Live lively
ChooseLife : In Mid February I ordered and started using a Nebulizer with 1.5% H2O2 – http://chooselife.co.uk/index.php/2020/02/28/bill-munro-vs-the-coronavirus/
The Dr is bullish in his convictions, however there are associated risks to taking H2O2, perhaps mild or moderate, but they should be discussed, to best inform the reader.
Oxidative Stress may lead to the following :
Oxygen is crucial to life; however, when we use oxygen our bodies constantly produce free radicals. Free radicals are chemically unstable molecules or atoms. They also make other molecules or atoms in the body very unstable, thus damaging proteins, cell membranes, and even DNA structure. This is a process which can lead to permanent damage to cells and tissues resulting in infection, mental decline, depressed immunity system, joint disease, and heart disease. Free radicals are also considered to play an important role in the aging process.
Catalase is constantly in battle against the effect of free radicals to the body. It transforms harmful superoxide radicals into hydrogen peroxide which later breaks down into water and oxygen.
The enzyme Catalase is a key buffer for these dangers, Grey hair may be an indication of inhibited (or low) Catalase production, here are Vegetarian/Vegan food sources:
Vegetarian Sources of Catalase
Written by Don Amerman
Catalase — found throughout nature in the cells of organisms that grow in the presence of oxygen — is an enzyme with potent antioxidant properties. The enzyme facilitates the breakdown of hydrogen peroxide into its harmless components — water and oxygen. Without catalase, the hydrogen peroxide that your body produces during the metabolic process would build up to toxic levels. Catalase occurs naturally in a wide array of plant-based foods, ensuring its availability to vegetarians and vegans.
Age-Related Decline in Catalase
The cells in your body can produce catalase as well as other antioxidant enzymes, such as glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase, or SOD. These enzymes help to neutralize free radicals, according to the authors of “Biology: A Human Emphasis.” Free radicals are atoms or molecules with unpaired electrons that are the byproduct of human biological reactions such as metabolism. Scientists cite free radicals as causative factors in disease and aging-related cell damage. As you age, your body gradually produces less catalase, which results in a buildup of free radicals and an increase in the damage they can cause. To help supplement your body’s declining output of catalase, consume foods that are rich in this vital enzyme.
Garlic, Onions and Their Kin
Nutritionists give members of the allium plant family, which encompasses garlic, leeks, onions and shallots, high praise for their antioxidant properties. Among the cellular antioxidants naturally occurring in allium vegetables is catalase. In a study related to the catalase in allium family members, a team of Hungarian and Romanian researchers evaluated the effects of water stress on the level and activity of catalase and other antioxidant enzymes in these plants. They found that allium plants subjected to water deprivation had increased catalase levels and activity, according to an article published in a 2007 issue of “Plant, Soil and Environment.”
Cruciferous vegetables, including broccoli, cabbage, kale and collard and turnip greens, are rich in catalase. Eating plenty of these green leafy vegetables also stimulates your body’s production of catalase. Researchers at Alabama A&M University conducted an animal study to determine what, if any, anticancer effects could be observed in laboratory rats that were fed a diet of these vegetables. As part of this study, they measured the level of catalase in test animals and found that those fed cruciferous vegetables had sharply higher amounts of catalase in their livers than those animals that were not fed these vegetables. Results of this study were published in a 2012 issue of “International Journal of Cancer Research.”
Wheat sprouts contain high levels of catalase, according to a study by molecular biology researchers at Italy’s University of Perugia. In an article published in the July 2004 issue of the “Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology,” they note that the antioxidant activity of catalase and peroxidase in wheat sprouts is extremely strong. Other vegetarian sources of catalase include apricots, avocados, carrots, cherries, cucumbers, parsnips, potatoes, radishes, spinach and zucchini.
ChooseLife : Parallel to this, is the issues reported of bronchial constriction. This would lead to the thinking that Magnesium Sulphate may be a solid companion to H2O2.
Effect of magnesium sulfate on bronchoconstriction in the lung periphery.
Magnesium sulfate has been shown to be effective clinically as a bronchodilator, but its mechanism of action is unknown. We used a wedged bronchoscope technique to study the ability of MgSO4 at clinically relevant concentrations to attenuate hypocapnia-, acetylcholine- (ACh), and dry air-induced bronchoconstriction in the canine lung periphery. Control experiments demonstrated that consecutive challenges of either hypocapnia or ACh resulted in greater collateral system resistance (Rcs) after the second challenge compared with the first. Intravenous infusion of MgSO4 diminished the maximum response to a second hypocapnic challenge (Rcs = 1.59 +/- 0.29 cmH2O.ml-1.s prechallenge vs. 1.12 +/- 0.20 postchallenge) but had no effect on either ACh- or dry air-induced bronchoconstriction. Serum magnesium levels before MgSO4 administration were 1.59 +/- 0.04 meq/l and rose to 6.20 +/- 0.13 during the infusion. Previous studies demonstrated that nifedipine, like MgSO4 in this study, attenuates hypocapnia-induced bronchoconstriction in the canine lung periphery but has no effect on ACh- or dry air-induced bronchoconstriction. We conclude that these results are consistent with the idea that, like nifedipine, magnesium acts in the airway as a voltage-sensitive calcium channel blocker.
ChooseLife : Magnesium is also an Electron reducing agent, hence it may donate Electron potential to the free Oxygen released as Catalase supports the body to reduce H2O2 into H2O and 0xygen.
This links to this information, as I see this Disease as an Electron Crisis :
[QUOTE][…] reduced compounds such as glucose and fatty acids are oxidized, thereby releasing energy. This energy is transferred to NAD++ by reduction to NADH, as part of beta oxidation, glycolysis, and the citric acid cycle. In eukaryotes the electrons carried by the NADH that is produced in the cytoplasm are transferred into the mitochondrion (to reduce mitochondrial NAD++) by mitochondrial shuttles, such as the malate-aspartate shuttle. The mitochondrial NADH is then oxidized in turn by the electron transport chain, which pumps protons across a membrane and generates ATP through oxidative phosphorylation.[/QUOTE]
From Wikipedia article FADH2:
[QUOTE]FAD can exist in four different redox states, which are the flavin-N(5)-oxide, quinone, semiquinone, and hydroquinone. FAD is converted between these states by accepting or donating electrons. FAD, in its fully oxidized form, or quinone form, accepts two electrons and two protons to become FADH22 (hydroquinone form). The semiquinone (FADH) can be formed by either reduction of FAD or oxidation of FADH22 by accepting or donating one electron and one proton, respectively.[/QUOTE]
“Chloroquine was shown to inhibit quinone reductase 2 , a structural neighbour of UDP-N-acetylglucosamine 2-epimerases that are involved in the biosynthesis of sialic acids. The sialic acids are acidic monosaccharides found at the extremity of sugar chains present on cell”
ChooseLife : This links together the researchers and testing of hydroxychloroquine. Is this not an Electron cascade crisis? Or a pH crisis which manifests into/from Electron deficiency? Whether this is from a Virus, or 5G, the results are the same, the treatments are the same in need… Though the overlap in effects from the Virus and the reported dangers of 5G are startling, to say the least. It is no wonder getting sunlight, or Vitamin D (Protons) is postulated often as a key player in this illness crisis.
This would make sense that Zinc with chloroquine is showing great promise in tests, as Zinc again is an Electron donor, like Magnesium…
Here it is worth also noting that Johanna Budwig contributed huge research and understanding of Electron dynamics, and stated very vigorously that it is Flax Seeds which have the highest level of Electron surplus, she found in her research that taking high levels of Flaxseed Oil, mixed with Quark (1 part Flaxseed Oil, 2 parts Quark, making it water soluble) was the most efficient mechanism possible to re-invogorate the human ‘Electron Cloud’
Interestingly, in her booklet:
Dr Budwig relayed:
I often take very sick cancer patients away from hospital where they are said to have only a few days left to live, or perhaps only a few hours. This is mostly accompanied by very good results. The very first thing which these patients and their families tell me is that, in the hospital, it was said that they could no longer urinate or produce bowel movements. They suffered from dry coughing without being able to bring up any mucous.
Every- thing was blocked. It greatly encourages them when suddenly, in all these symptoms, the surface-active fats with their wealth of electrons, start reactivating the vital functions and the patient immediately begins to feel better. It is very interesting to ask how this sudden change is possible. It has to do with the reaction patterns, with the character of electrons. I will return to these electrons later. In the last two years I have come to be very fond of them. A friend of my work in Paris wrote to me how wonderful it is that you have discovered the original birthplace of the electrons in seed oils to be the sun. That’s how these connections are made!
ChooseLife : As soon as I heard about COVID, and the chief symptom of dry cough, I though about the Budwig book and that paragraph above shouted at me. Flax (ALA) I knew was a key supportive element, yet at that stage I did not see the larger context.
Further to this, a new to air youtuber – Ava Green, has become viral, after relating her experiences with Diamox and the alignment of it’s usage and the COVID symptoms : Almost High Altitude Sickness
Pulmonary Edema, Diamox (acetylzolamide) increases Urine pH, relieving this issue:
However, Pulmonary Edema is usually characterised as symptomatic of ‘Productive Cough’ or ‘Wet Cough’ not ‘Dry Cough’. Countless reports I have seen suggest quite the opposite, that the pneumonia/illness type is a very sticky mucus laiden lungs when scanned, hence a dry cough.
So, this drug may hold potential, chiefly via the increasing of urine pH, but has a multitude of nasty potential side effects, a diet with 75% fruit and vegetables is shown to raise Urine pH similarly in 3days, without the nasty side effects, in fact the other effects of this shift in diet, if green foods based, are multitude in potential positives. Mental health may be supported with the richer Magnesium this form of eating may bring (Mental Health Reviews – Magnesium).
This form of eating 75% Fruit and Vegetables, with a strong Alkaline influence (lots of leafy greens especially), if coupled with high Flax intake via a Budwig mix, is shown scientifically to elevate Metabolic and Respiratory status away from Acid and towards neutral (the author does not believe an Alkaline state is any more healthful than acidic, it is the balance which gives the reactive force, and allows the body to extract the electromagnetic energies in foods which in turn release their stored nutrients).
Altitude sickness style illness is what this Dr from New York claims he is seeing:
This Doctor, who is leading a COVID ICU, does it not sound like the symptoms you may expect to see if the 5G side effects are correct, Oxygen oscillation acceleration making uptake into the bloodstream troublesome, as the spin of Electrons become too fast to bind with Hemoglobin? It certainly seems that way to me. New York is a 5G pilot city, London, Wuhan. The Doctor says the effects are like how he envisages one would encounter if someone without acclimitisation were dropped at the top of Mount Everest…
This reflection, or speculation, of Altitude Sickness, reminded me of when I saw a documentary of Westerners climbing Mount Everest, in the Documentary I was struck that a much older Gurkha was carrying the Westerners very considerable Luggage, yet was able to smoke ceaselessly! This aligns to the statistics that are showing that a disproportionately low number of Smokers are being admitted to Hospital with COVID, are the smokers already attuned to Hypoxia like conditions and their biochemistry has been attuned coping mechanisms, like the Gurkha in Nepal? Of course he was acclimitised, but it was still staggering his body could cope in those conditions, when the younger, very fit, climber was struggling in the lower oxygen environment.
80% of those needing Ventillation in New York are dying, what if this is because 5G is in almost all the Hospitals in New York? Making the Oxygen Electrons spin too fast, forcefully adding more oxygen may only increase this damage, in those with Electron buffering insufficiency needed to take this sped up Oxygen into Hemoglobin? This paper supports this idea:
COVID-19: Attacks the 1-Beta Chain of Hemoglobin and Captures the
Porphyrin to Inhibit Human Heme Metabolism
The novel coronavirus pneumonia (COVID-19) is an infectious acute respiratory infection caused by the novel coronavirus. The virus is a positive-strand RNA virus with high homology to bat coronavirus.
In this study, conserved domain analysis, homology modeling, and molecular docking were used to compare the biological roles of certain proteins of the novel coronavirus. The results showed the ORF8 and surface glycoprotein could bind to the porphyrin, respectively. At the same time, orf1ab, ORF10, and ORF3a proteins could coordinate attack the heme on the 1-beta chain of hemoglobin to dissociate the iron to form the porphyrin.
The attack will cause less and less hemoglobin that can carry oxygen and carbon dioxide. The lung cells have extremely intense poisoning and inflammatory due to the inability to exchange carbon dioxide and oxygen frequently, which eventually results in ground-glass-like lung images.
The mechanism also interfered with the normal heme anabolic pathway of the human body, is expected to result in human disease. According to the validation analysis of these finds, chloroquine could prevent orf1ab, ORF3a, and ORF10 to attack the heme to form the porphyrin, and inhibit the binding of ORF8 and surface glycoproteins to porphyrins to a certain extent, effectively relieve the symptoms of respiratory distress. Favipiravir could inhibit the envelope protein and ORF7a protein bind to porphyrin, prevent the virus from entering host cells, and catching free porphyrins. Because the novel coronavirus is dependent on porphyrins, it may originate
from an ancient virus. Therefore, this research is of high value to contemporary biological experiments, disease prevention, and clinical treatment.
ChooseLife :This could be seen as supporting the 5G hypothesis, it does to me, ALARM BELLS ARE RINGING. Chloroquine is suggested again, and links the Electron issue, covered early in this ramble.
This leads me to this research paper:
Cellular Response to Cigarette Smoke and Oxidants
Adapting to Survive
The gaseous and soluble phases of cigarette smoke are sources of oxidants that contribute to the pathogenesis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Chronic oxidative stress of cigarette smoking induces mucus secretion and inhibits cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator function. The increased mucus viscosity renders the airways susceptible to bacterial infections, a hallmark of chronic bronchitis. Furthermore, lungs chronically exposed to the toxic mixture of oxidants in cigarette smoke show signs of endoplasmic reticulum stress, unfolded protein response, altered ceramide metabolism, and apoptosis. Fortunately, the respiratory tract has developed effective adaptive cellular mechanisms to limit oxidant damage. Numerous antioxidant enzymes and glutathione-dependent detoxification systems are increased in healthy smokers. The regulation of the antioxidant response is largely dependent on the nuclear factor erythroid 2–related factor-2 (Nrf2) pathway. However, patients with COPD have defective Nrf2 responses. Novel therapies such as 2-cyano-3,12-dioxooleana-1,9-dien-28-oic acid (CDDO) to correct defective Nrf2-dependent cellular response may hold promise for patients with COPD.
ChooseLife : So, we could see the above as suggesting that healthy smokers bodies may be acclimitised to this Hypoxia type state? Like the old Nepalese Smoker being better able to cope not only with thin air, but also smoke constantly in that environment, the similarities seem stark, however the dry unproductive cough symptom is a key differentiator to HAPE symptoms.
This research area, led me to the following research, when checking into Bronchial dilation (debating in my mind if Magnesium Sulphate is contraidicatd by the above video/Doctor):
CT Features of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Pneumonia in 62 Patients in Wuhan, China
A decreased lymphocyte count and an increased high-sensitivity C-reactive protein level were the most common laboratory findings.
Read More: https://www.ajronline.org/doi/full/10.2214/AJR.20.22975
Omega3 is known to support lymphocyte production :
Effect of ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid-supplemented parenteral nutrition on inflammatory and immune function in postoperative patients with gastrointestinal malignancy
A meta-analysis of randomized control trials in China
In this study, lymphocyte count was significantly higher in ω-3 groups than the control groups. Omega-3 PUFAs improve the body’s defense system by the proliferation of lymphocytes, and the meta-analysis result also confirmed that the incidence of infectious complications in ω-3 groups was significantly lower than the control group.
This again says to me Metabolic Acidosis is encountered, the Lyposomes/Endosome Cargo carriers and waste removal system appears to become compromised, this is symptomtic of Cellular pH failure, as the lower pH terrain will always result in slower arrival of nutrient cargo as the Endosomes slow, and the waste removal systems slow affecting C-reactive protein as the paper above reports finding most often. Why would Sodium Bicarbonate, Magnesium Hydoxide and the like (high pH substances) not be a first line defence in these dynamics? I cannot understand why not, but a Doctor I am not!
Why does it affect Afro-Carribeans more? We’ve seen that COVID is seen to affect C-reactive protein in a very high number of cases, what if we overlay Omega 3 to this dynamic?
Relationship of Omega-3 Fatty Acids on C-Reactive Protein and Homocysteine in Haitian and African Americans with and without Type 2 Diabetes
Omega-3 fatty acids (n-3) may be protective of cardiovascular risk factors for vulnerable populations. The purpose of this study was to assess the association between n-3 with, C-reactive protein (CRP), and homocysteine (HCY) in Black minorities with and without type 2 diabetes.
African Americans had higher waist circumferences and C-reactive protein and consumed more calories as compared to Haitian Americans. Omega 3 fatty acid intake per calorie did not differ between these ethnicities, yet African Americans with low n-3 intake were three times more likely to have high C-reactive protein as compared to their counterparts [OR=3. 32 (1. 11, 9. 26) p=0.031].
Consumption of n-3 may be protective of cardiovascular risk factors such as C-reactive protein and homocysteine for certain ethnicities. Prospective studies are needed to confirm these results.
How about Magnesium, and C-Reactive Protein?
Dietary magnesium and C-reactive protein levels.
Most Americans consume magnesium at levels below the RDA. Individuals with intakes below the RDA are more likely to have elevated CRP, which may contribute to cardiovascular disease risk.
ChooseLife Notes : None of this should be construed as medical advice, or advice at all. this is just my reflections on Biological Ionisation as it relates to our current situation. The science supports that pH is very, very important, I dearly hope readers may understand this and seek to make informed choices. This period has seen a galvanising of my own diet, and my daughters, to ensure if we are infected/injured by the condition classified as COVID19 (et al) our bodies are the least likely to succumb to the worst effects some people suffer sadly.
I wish you all every wellness. May we come through this brighter and with more positive spirit than we had before, my love to you all.
Well Wishes, Rich Fosh
