Health benefits of spirulina.
When you take a vitamin pill, you should do it with some food and particularly with food that has some fat, as this will improve digestion and absorption of the vitamins.
The flu pandemic in 1918/1919 (it came back a second year) infected about 1/3 of the entire world, i.e., it was highly infectious with a huge number of people infected. But it wasn’t a death sentence as the death rate was only 2.5%. Yet millions died because so many were infected. The death rate for the current pandemic is a little over 2%, much greater than the standard flu death rate of just .1%, but, so far, it has infected far fewer people than the 1918/19 pandemic.
A nasty aspect of the Spanish Flu is that it could kill very quickly. Often those people who were infected died that same day or shortly afterward. A respiratory killer — you suffocated from lack of oxygen.
If you use cronometer.com, a free service, you can see exactly what your micronutrient profile is each day. No guessing whether you are deficient or excessive in anything. If you are into nutrition, it’s kind of fun. I’ve discovered I can be regularly deficient in lysine, iodine, and choline. Had no clue about this before using cronometer.
The Roman Empire perhaps reached its zenith under Marcus Aurelius in the 2nd century AD, but then the plague came.
More deaths in Italy than in China. Really. That tells me the Chinese are lying about the number of deaths. Why would that not surprise me?
I have been tracking everything I eat for 7 days now in Cronometer, and it shows that my deficiencies are B12, iodine, and choline. So when they ask a vegan like me where do you get your protein (I get plenty of the essential amino acids and with only a 12% macro for protein), they should instead be asking where do you get your B12, iodine (no fish), and choline (no eggs). I already supplement with a B12 pill and have added either kept or seaweed to my diet for the iodine. Am considering adding a supplement for the choline. I read that choline deficiency can lead to fatty liver, and that choline deficiency is common.
If I were a scientist in a pharmaceutical company, I would study the chemical composition of turmeric, and identify what each chemical in turmeric does in the human body. Then conduct experiments with test groups to see how regular infusion of each chemical could benefit the health of humans.
The C Word documentary on Netflix was interesting.
