Sweet Deaths?

Obesity…Body Mass Index…Diabetes…Coronavirus…Flu Vaccination.

Dots to connect…

It now appears there are connections between Covid19, diabetes, obesity/BMI and flu shots.

DOT 1 – A report, by Doctor Stephen Smith indicates a connection between pre-diabetes, diabetes and obesity (BMI >30) and Covid19 outcomes. 

DOT 2 – Fatter = Longer. A 2018 study indicates that obese people shed viruses 1.5 times longer than non-obese people, thus increasing by 50% the time of transmission of a virus.  https://www.aafp.org/news/health-of-the-public/20180813flu-obesity.html

DOT 3 – “People with diabetes are considered to be at high risk for morbidity and mortality from influenza and pneumococcal disease, and are recommended to get a flu shot.

DOT 4 – Scientists have come to realize that flu vaccines are less effective for people who are overweight or obese. Considering that excess weight affects more than two-thirds of the U.S. adult population, that’s a significant shortcoming.

DOT 5 – A recent study has shown flu vaccine INCREASES risk of Covid19 by 36% in healthy people between the ages of 18 and 62. It is likely that number would be higher in unhealthy individuals.

DOT 6 – Hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) reduces immune system response to viruses.

DOT 7 – Bacteria and viruses have a sweet tooth! … The great majority, around 80%, of these bacteria and viruses seek out the sugars on the surface of our cells. They then settle and start to attack the cell.

Conclusions:

  1. Those who are pre-diabetic, diabetic or obese have a huge risk from Covid19, and, may make up the vast majority of severe cases.
  2. Those who are obese and contract Covid19 may be infectious for 1.5 times longer.
  3.  Diabetics or obese people who had a flu vaccine this year may have a 150% or greater chance of getting a serious case of Covid19.
  4. 2/3’s of the US population may prolong Covid19 due to their excess weight.
  5.  Those with high sugar consumption appear to be more susceptible to viruses.

That’s the bad news.

The good news is contained in Dr. Smith’s interview.
