  Vidcast:  https://youtu.be/eeZK_NIjhL8   The spike protein that CoVid uses to fuse with and infect human cells appears to be toxic to at least one deadly form of human cancer, Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer.  Investigators at Chicago's Rush University Medical Center tested purified CoVid spike protein against cell cultures of human non-small cell lung cancer, NSCLC, and mouse lung cancers induced by the tobacco carcinogen NNK   The S1 spike protein at very low doses led to the death of cultured NSCLC cells.  Antibodies against the spike protein blocked this effect as did heat-induced destruction of the spike protein.  Studies also showed that the spike protein's anti-cancer effect required interaction of the protein with ACE2 receptors on the cancer cells.  The mouse experiments showed that intranasal sprays of the Covid spike protein effectively blocked the growth of lung cancers as well as inducing the regression of the tumors.   This research is in its earliest stages.  It would be ironic, though, if the CoVid virus that has sickened and killed so many has a role in preventing the development and progression of cancer.   https://www.mdpi.com/2072-6694/14/22/5648   #covid #spikeprotein #cancer #nsclc #lungcancer

They will continue to rise during the December holidays.  To protect our most vulnerable neighbors including the very young and the oldest, it is critical that all of us not only keep our CoVid vaccinations and boosters current but also return to the defensive use of masking when indoors, on mass transit, and in crowds.   https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#vaccination-demographics-trends   #CoVid #vaccine #booster #omicron

Fact is, these CoVid vaccines are likely as safe as the drugs you freely buy in the drugstore for your colds and your sleepless nights.   What's more, so far, these vaccines are FREE.  They don't cost you or your family a penny.  Ever wonder why that is?  It's because responsible public health officials have advised our governmental leaders that having a vaccinated and boosted American population is essential for the well-being of us all.  It keeps us healthy, out of the hospital, working to support the almighty US dollar, and, of most importance, out of the grave.   So we all need to get off our butts, get vaccinated for CoVid and the flu, get boosted, in order to not only protect ourselves but also to protect the ones we love and all of our neighbors.  The CDC has just approved the CoVid Omicron booster for infants and children 6 months to 5 years.  It's another chance for Americans to finally wake up and protect our youngest kids.   What's more, doing your part to stop CoVid and the flu doesn't stop with vaccination.   It includes masking when around others in the absence of safe ventilation which means indoors, on trains and buses, and in crowds.   https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#vaccination-demographics-trends https://www.cdc.gov/flu/fluvaxview/dashboard/vaccination-dashboard.html   #CoVid #influenza #vaccines #boosters #masking #economy #publichealth
