1. We review now the very strong hypothesis that Sars-COV-2 is now aerosolized on a sub-micron level greatly reducing any impact PPE may have and greatly increasing transmission vectors. 2. Immunity to COVID-19 appears to last at least 8 months with significant B cell memory. 3. Plus deep dive into global Data that really shows there is no real clear pandemic mitigation strategy that is having any real-world effect except unnecessarily causing hardship among the subject populace.

Prebiotics may help activate anti-tumor immunity
Scientists at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute have shown that two prebiotics, mucin and inulin, slowed the growth of melanoma in mice by boosting the immune system’s ability to fight cancer. In contrast to probiotics, which are live bacterial strains, prebiotics are “food” for bacteria and stimulate the growth of diverse beneficial populations. The study, published today in Cell Reports, provides further evidence that gut microbes have a role in shaping the immune response to cancer, and supports efforts to target the gut microbiome to enhance the efficacy of cancer therapy.

Significant Flu protection via Lactic Acid bacteria
Animals administered lactobacillus casei nasally had a 100% survival rate compared to animals that did not which had a 100% fatality rate when exposed to lethal strains of Influenza A.
