After my intro, I have reproduced an article from Medium titled, "The Coronavirus Took Advantage of Our Weaknesses." "A physician explains the nature of opportunistic infection.
TJL Intro: The article states that we are vulnerable and full of chronic conditions that make us susceptible to severe COVID symptoms. What the doctor got wrong - is that most of the modern degenerative diseases we have are already causes by opportunistic infection. That is, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer's are ALL infectious diseases.
Please take a good hard look at this chart that we published. It's based on a search of PubMed and I think it is extraordinarily revealing of the causes of chronic conditions.
I hope you find this correlation as STUNNING as do I!
But...... There is a difference between these diseases and an infectious disease like the flu - to some degree. The difference is, the etiology (progress) of the disease was already being established at the time of the infection becoming well established.
Suggested reading to support this.... the work of Paul Ewald. I recommend the book "Plague Time," or a more easy read -
Here is the article from Medium.
text in "blue" are statements that are either misleading or inaccurate IMHO
