Shining some light into the darkness
Shedding light on another way to fight bacteria and viruses.
In the polio vaccination, after they accidentally injected a live virus formulation, they landed up paralyzing over 75% of the kids back in the 50’s. When they corrected their mistake and injected dead virus, the children achieve immunity. The UV system does this without throwing millions at the problem.
Some years ago the UV light solution was tried on the HIV virus in the following way. Remove a pint of blood from a patient, run it thru a tube exposed to concentrated UV light. Re-inject it into the body. What you are re-injecting is fragmented virus which the immune system can identify and from there build immunity. Otherwise, dead virus.
I hope you don’t think that altruism is a natural condition of man, it is not. Like the acog’s, its profit over people. Don’t ever be naive. Anything anyone does, does so to benefit themselves.
Influenza virus infection is one of the major causes of human morbidity and mortality. Between humans, this virus spreads mostly via aerosols excreted from the respiratory system. Current means of prevention of influenza virus infection are not entirely satisfactory because of their limited efficacy. Safe and effective preventive measures against pandemic influenza are greatly needed. We demonstrate that infection of mice induced by aerosols of influenza A virus was prevented by chlorine dioxide (ClO(2)) gas at an extremely low concentration (below the long-term permissible exposure level to humans, namely 0.1 p.p.m.). Mice in semi-closed cages were exposed to aerosols of influenza A virus (1 LD(50)) and ClO(2) gas (0.03 p.p.m.) simultaneously for 15 min. Three days after exposure, pulmonary virus titre (TCID(50)) was 10(2.6+/-1.5) in five mice treated with ClO(2), whilst it was 10(6.7+/-0.2) in five mice that had not been treated (P=0.003). Cumulative mortality after 16 days was 0/10 mice treated with ClO(2) and 7/10 mice that had not been treated (P=0.002). In in vitro experiments, ClO(2) denatured viral envelope proteins (haemagglutinin and neuraminidase) that are indispensable for infectivity of the virus, and abolished infectivity. Taken together, we conclude that ClO(2) gas is effective at preventing aerosol-induced influenza virus infection in mice by denaturing viral envelope proteins at a concentration well below the permissible exposure level to humans. ClO(2) gas could therefore be useful as a preventive means against influenza in places of human activity without necessitating evacuation.
