When you consider the typical dietary advice we are given by our doctors, these studies are exceedingly enlightening:

The media should be all over this making the public aware of the thinking of these scientists.  As a society we should be trying anything which has even a slight chance of improving the odds and not waiting for a green light from those who have put themselves in control of our destiny.  End of rant for today!

“The media should” - - - - . Yes they should but are far too interested in the negative by highlighting the death count, ICU bed capacity, daily positives, etc. Informative vaccine info and/or any possible positives don’t sell the “news”. Every major newscast starts with the days worst bad news, the last story, about 30 seconds worth, is always the “feel good” story.

Conditionally I agree. The media certainly does dig into the ‘klaxon’ stats. But the populace does need to be made aware of how the virus is moving so they can properly prepare/react. That said most of the media gives too few details. I see maps of states with covid19 trends in color codes. Aside from the ‘scare’ factor they are useless. Give me a local map that highlights the areas of high density covid19 concentrations. Give me the age groups in my area that are showing positive covid19 results. Tell me information that will assist me in avoiding places/peoples that have higher infection potential. As I understand it they do not do this to avoid stigmatizing those places and peoples. Screw that. This is a pandemic and we’ve stopped the planet (practically) to manage covid19. If it’s that important then it is important enough to tell me what/whom/where to avoid.

Think covid19 is bad? Look at the Nipah virus - also from bats and found in Asia.

I’m sure the bioterrorism labs have already started working on it :

Life will sure be more challenging from now on imo.  Thanks for making my day Bosco😁.

It was about this time last year when a colleague of mine raised the alarm about covid19. His wife holds multiple degrees and was well connected in the international medical community. She’d become aware of a SARS like illness on the loose in China......   and she was worried. This was before Italy or any known cases outside of China. One year later and this virus is knocking at every door, everywhere. 
 

This is how fast and powerful a new infectious disease can be. What we see is how tough they are to contain. And we have witnessed how vulnerable humanity is in mental frailties and physical susceptibility. The spread of covid19 never had anything to do with politics as the virus has invaded neatly and uniformly into all countries. It had to do with personal responsibility and boy howdy did humanity fail (and this continues even now). That’s understandable. Humanity had not dealt with any such disease for a century. It was a century loaded with medical miracles and the populace became reliant on modern medical cures to keep them safe. Humanity had dumbed down about the terrors of infectious disease. 
 

So whether it is this ugly Nipah virus or some mutated form of tuberculosis or whatever people must enhance their understanding about truly lethal and uncontrolled pathogens. These are extinction level monsters. We must do much, much, MUCH better next time. And that applies to every country and every individual.
