Nicotine is more harmful than just the fact that it is addictive. Nicotine is also a vasoconstrictor - stiffens arterial walls and increases your blood pressure.This again.
The most harmful effects of nicotine is that it is addictive. Other than that, it's a stimulant that could be harmful if misused, but the rest of the stuff is what it generally harmful when smoking... not the nicotine. The nicotine is just what makes you keep doing it to yourself over and over.
That is a good point. Jury will still probably be out until the NIH study is complete. My suspicion is that people caught very early in progression might benefit the most. Hopefully at least the antibody drugs pan out for the fall so we’re not facing another big wave without any tools besides convalescent plasma.I think I have to side with Gilead's interpretration: if the study didn't enroll enough patients, it would be severely underpowered. There would have to be a huge benefit to see anything. Currently, it would be difficult to draw many conclusions.
I'd hazard a guess that if there is a benefit, it will be somewhat small anyway. I don't think there will be a magic bullet.
Reading the article, it sounds to me like it's not those who seem asymptomatic to have to worry about organ damage. It's the ones that were hospitalized & had more severe reaction to COVID-19.The thing that's scary with this virus is that it does permanent lung damage, and now it looks like it also damages other organs such as kidneys and heart. It can cause blood clots and neurological issues too. So all those people who got it but don't know aren't exactly out of the woods. The damage might show up as health complications down the road. I wonder if contracting it multiple times also increase the damage done.
Clinicians around world have seen evidence Covid-19 is also causing heart inflammation, acute kidney disease, neurological malfunction, blood clots, intestinal damage and liver problemswww.independent.co.uk
another case of redsquirl just spouting nonsense!Reading the article, it sounds to me like it's not those who seem asymptomatic to have to worry about organ damage. It's the ones that were hospitalized & had more severe reaction to COVID-19.
But i guess time will tell.
Yeah. That's totally why they went out of their way to say:Nicotine is more harmful than just the fact that it is addictive. Nicotine is also a vasoconstrictor - stiffens arterial walls and increases your blood pressure.
It's a stimulant. Find me a stimulant that doesn't have minor side effects like that. You basically just described caffeine, and you definitely don't see responses like that when someone mentions the possible benefits of caffeine."We must not forget the harmful effects of nicotine," said Jerome Salomon, France's top health official.
Why only "extreme cases" and not anyone over 18 who is aware of the addictive properties?Yeah I imagine if it is proven to work it would only really be used in extreme cases.
Lysol had to push out an update in response to this lol
Improper use of Disinfectants

Too late suckers! Thanks to POTUS I found my cureSome good news
In our search for control over coronavirus, America has taken to wiping down our groceries and takeout food, but the true risk is tiny, experts say. More important preventions are proper hand-washing and social distancing.www.cnn.com
I'd imagine that we'll get plenty more foot in mouth senior moments like that one over the next few years, no matter which party gets elected this fall.
I gave my direct deposit info immediately as soon as that site was up practically and my message hasn't changed. Get the whole "Yeah, you're eligible, but we have no clue when we will send it" BS.Did anyone else NOT get their stimulus direct deposit payment from the IRS yet? I entered my bank account info a week ago, and my status hasn't changed since then.
Yeah, I'm getting the same status. I guess that I shouldn't expect anything until June.I gave my direct deposit info immediately as soon as that site was up practically and my message hasn't changed. Get the whole "Yeah, you're eligible, but we have no clue when we will send it" BS.
I suspect that they needed my direct deposit since I owed when I filed my 2019 return.

I remember reading that they give mailed checks priority based on who has the least amount of income (e.g. those reporting under 20,000$ income get mailed first)... Maybe that's the same with the direct deposit? I dunno. Also my payment isn't a straight-shot $1200, I'm in the "phase out" territory and also married with dependents to account for.
