Cannabinoids from hemp prevent covid-19 coronavirus from entering human cells

Hemp 1
Hemp compounds identified by Oregon State University research via a chemical screening technique invented at OSU show the ability to prevent the virus that causes COVID-19 from entering human cells.

Findings of the study led by Richard van Breemen, a researcher with Oregon State's Global Hemp Innovation Center, College of Pharmacy, and Linus Pauling Institute, were published on January 10, 2022, in the Journal of Natural Products.

Hemp, known scientifically as Cannabis sativa, is a source of fiber, food, and animal feed, and multiple hemp extracts and compounds are added to cosmetics, body lotions, dietary supplements, and food, van Breemen said.

Van Breemen and collaborators, including scientists at Oregon Health & Science University, found that a pair of cannabinoid acids bind to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, blocking a critical step in the process the virus uses to infect people.

Global spread of autoimmune disease blamed on western diet

Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the autoimmune conditions that are causing concern around the world
More and more people around the world are suffering because their immune systems can no longer tell the difference between healthy cells and invading micro-organisms. Disease defences that once protected them are instead attacking their tissue and organs.

Major international research efforts are being made to fight this trend - including an initiative at London's Francis Crick Institute, where two world experts, James Lee and Carola Vinuesa, have set up separate research groups to help pinpoint the precise causes of autoimmune disease, as these conditions are known.

"Numbers of autoimmune cases began to increase about 40 years ago in the west," Lee told the Observer. "However, we are now seeing some emerge in countries that never had such diseases before.

For example, the biggest recent increase in inflammatory bowel disease cases has been in the Middle East and east Asia. Before that they had hardly seen the disease."

Repeated Covid boosters not a viable strategy: WHO

covid booster
WHO experts warned Tuesday that repeating booster doses of the original COVID vaccines is not a viable strategy against emerging variants and called for new jabs that better protect against transmission.

An expert group created by the World Health Organization to assess the performance of COVID-19 vaccines said simply providing fresh jabs of existing COVID vaccines as new strains of the virus emerge was not the best way to fight the pandemic.

"A vaccination strategy based on repeated booster doses of the original vaccine composition is unlikely to be appropriate or sustainable," the WHO Technical Advisory Group on COVID-19 Vaccine Composition (TAG-Co-VAC) said in a statement.

Some healthcare workers have pre-existing immunity to Covid, study finds

health care workers
The question of whether some people have pre-existing immunity to Covid has been with us since the early days of the pandemic. Many scientists initially assumed there would be little or no pre-existing immunity. After all, SARS-CoV-2 was novel, highly infectious virus that appeared well adapted for human transmission.

However, in the spring of 2020, scientists began to report cross-reactive T-cell activity in people who hadn't been infected with the virus, and - in some cases - in those who hadn't even been exposed. However, it remained unclear whether such T-cell activity played any role in immunity.

Were individuals with cross-reactive T-cells less likely to become infected? Were they less likely to get seriously ill, conditional upon being infected? We simply didn't know. Some even speculated that T-cell activity might predispose to more severe disease...

Comment: Since the beginning of the 'pandemic,' the authorities have acted as though the immune system doesn't even exist and that the only protection against Covid was a vaccine. That narrative has long since crumbled, although this fact has yet to reach the masses (and is, in fact, being blocked quite deliberately). Unfortunately, it's unlikely this study will do anything to change that.

The Imperial College finally acknowledges pre-existing immunity to COVID-19. What took it so long?

T cells or T lymphocytes, which are one of the significant components of the adaptive immune system, play a more prominent role in the response against the coronavirus than antibodies.
T-cells from common cold coronaviruses can provide protection against COVID-19, an Imperial College London study has found. Reuters reports on the findings, which were published in Nature.
The study, which began in September 2020, looked at levels of cross-reactive T-cells generated by previous common colds in 52 household contacts of positive COVID-19 cases shortly after exposure, to see if they went on to develop infection.

It found that the 26 who did not develop infection had significantly higher levels of those T-cells than people who did get infected. Imperial did not say how long protection from the T-cells would last.

"We found that high levels of pre-existing T cells, created by the body when infected with other human coronaviruses like the common cold, can protect against COVID-19 infection," study author Dr Rhia Kundu said.

The "COVID Chronicles" movie1 gives a concise look at the pandemic, answering some of the questions that have left many people scratching their heads, because the reality and science don't seem to match up with what the media is reporting.

Ivor Cummins is a biochemical engineer with a background in medical device engineering and leading teams in complex problem-solving. On his website, TheFatEmperor.com,2 he offers guidance on how to decode science to transform your health. He produced "COVID Chronicles" along with Donal O'Neill, a documentary filmmaker in the field of health and human performance.

There were red flags in the pandemic from the start. Because the symptoms of COVID-19 overlap with so many other diseases, the only way to know you have it is to test for it.

Objective:Health - Mass Formation Psychosis

O:H header
Mass Formation Psychosis has been allover social media of late, after it was explained by Dr. Robert Malone on his widely censored interview with Joe Rogan. It's made such a splash that the control system has gone into high gear trying to "debunk" the idea (see articles on Reuters and AP, for example); never mind that the "debunking" consists of "we talked to 3 'experts' and they say it doesn't exist".

But regular viewers of Objective:Health know that we've been talking about this phenomenon, although not under this current name, for the past 7 years. It's not new and not unique to the 'pandemic'. The mass control of the thought patterns of the population has a long history, although the science of mass hypnosis has become more exacting and refined.

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we look into the trance state the world is currently under, the means by which its achieved and maintained, and whether or not it's possible to break out of it.

COVID-19: T cells from common colds can protect against coronavirus infection, study finds

Common cold offers protection from COVID
People with high levels of T cells from common colds are less likely to catch COVID, according to a new peer-reviewed study. Researchers said the findings could help provide the blueprint for the production of new vaccines which give longer-lasting immunity and would protect against current and future coronavirus variants such as Omicron and Delta.

Imperial College London researchers say the high levels of T cells and the role in fighting COVID is an "important discovery" - but warned "no one should rely on this alone" and insisted people should still get vaccinated as the "best way" to protect against COVID. T cells are a type of white blood cell that help protect the body from infection.

Dr Rhia Kundu, first author of the study, from Imperial's National Heart & Lung Institute, said:
"Being exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus doesn't always result in infection, and we've been keen to understand why. We found that high levels of pre-existing T cells, created by the body when infected with other human coronaviruses like the common cold, can protect against COVID-19 infection. While this is an important discovery, it is only one form of protection, and I would stress that no one should rely on this alone. Instead, the best way to protect yourself against COVID-19 is to be fully vaccinated, including getting your booster dose."
The study started in September 2020 when most people in the UK had not been infected with COVID-19. It included 52 people who lived with someone who had been exposed to COVID, which had been confirmed through a PCR test. The participants did PCR tests at the outset and then at four and seven days later to determine if they developed an infection.

German researchers have confirmed that the lack of in-person contact during a Covid lockdown and school closures took a sad toll on children's mental health, with the number of suicide attempts increasing sharply.

Up to 500 minors were hospitalized after suicide attempts in Germany between early March and late May 2021, DUP Magazin reported this week, citing a yet-unpublished study from the Essen University Hospital (UK Essen).

Researchers analyzed the data from 27 children's intensive care units across the country. They found that reported child suicide attempts increased fourfold compared to pre-pandemic times.

Comment: The lack of social contact and its negative effects was a looming problem before the pandemic, only made worse by all the measures put in place. See also:

Monica Almeida, who was in an intensive care unit with COVID-19, began showing signs of recovery after being given Viagra for an entire week.
She recovered from COVID-19 - with help from the little blue pill, according to a report.

Monica Almeida, 37, a fully vaccinated nurse in the UK, spent 28 days in a coma after contracting COVID-19 and was just 72 hours from having her ventilator turned off when she was saved by a "large dose of Viagra," the Lincolnite reported.

Almeida, an asthma sufferer who has worked as a respiratory specialist for the UK's National Health Service in Lincolnshire, tested positive for the deadly bug on Oct. 31, 2021, according to the outlet.
