“The virus spike may camouflage itself with sugar molecules. They flex and sway, potentially blocking the antibodies from attaching to the virus, neutralizing it.” There you have it, folks. There IS a sugar connection to coronavirus deaths that could explain why those who are obese or diabetic are much more likely to die from it.
The current approach to fighting the coronavirus is to slow down the rate of infection so we don’t overwhelm our healthcare facilities; we are more likely to survive if we have adequate tests, medical care, hospital beds, and respiratory equipment (which we don’t at this time). But there are things we can be doing right now to make sure that when we inevitably are exposed we will have mild symptoms and recover quickly.
How did we become the sickest and most medicated people in the industrialized world while paying twice as much for healthcare? We know what the problem is (inflammation). We know when it started (the late ‘70s). We know where it happened first (North America). The missing piece of the puzzle is what are we doing to cause it?
