Take Personal Action Against CoVid 19 and the Flu

When prominent health providers die young of the flu, it makes you wonder, "should I trust the system, alone, for my wellbeing?"

The following article indicates that the vaccine for the flu isn't very effective this year.

Stated in this article: "Okay, so what does all of this mean? How effective is this year's flu shot? The biggest takeaway here is that this year's flu shot isn't a great match for the leading virus out there right now: B/Victoria. According to a colleague who just went to a conference in Memphis stated, "the only 3 people in my session who were sick all had the flu shot."

Your key to surviving and thriving is NOT some marginal or untested drug. Your best defense is your natural defensive system. But you need to know how good it is and what you can do to arm it with more and better weapons against virus.

Here is an excerpt from an educational paper that myself and Dr. Mikhail Artamonov wrote for one of the organizations for which he is Chief Medical Officer.


Preventive measures are the same as for rhinovirus infections, which consist of handwashing and the careful disposal of materials infected with nasal secretions. The use of surface disinfectants is also an important issue in infection control, since coronaviruses appear to survive for one or more days after drying on surfaces such as stainless steel, plastic, or cloth [93]. More detailed information on prevention of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV), and SARS-CoV is discussed separately. (See "Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)", section on 'Prevention' and "Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)", section on 'Prevention' and "Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus: Treatment and prevention", section on 'Prevention'.)

The efficacy of various disinfectants was examined both on viruses in liquid suspension and on viruses dried on surfaces [94]. Human coronaviruses, including CoV-229E and SARS-CoV, as well as several animal coronaviruses (eg, mouse hepatitis virus and transmissible gastroenteritis virus of pigs), were studied. These viruses (both in suspension and dried on surfaces) were very susceptible to 70% ethanol, with reduction of viability by greater than 3 log within seconds [95-97]. Likewise, hexachlorophene [98], 2% glutaraldehyde [95] and 1% povidone-iodine [95,97] each produced satisfactory killing. It appears that susceptibility of coronaviruses to 6% sodium hypochlorite (the active agent in bleach) solutions has been variable, but satisfactory killing was achieved with concentrations of 1:40 or higher [96,97]. Coronaviruses were not killed by benzalkonium chloride or chlorhexidine unless 70% ethanol was added [95].

Vulnerable Populations

“Preliminary data suggest that older adults and persons with underlying health conditions or compromised immune systems might be at greater risk for severe illness from this virus,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
