  • Let's talk about the Elephant in the room: Obesity and COVID-19. Compared to unvaccinated healthy individuals - Obese people are way more likely to transmit the disease, occupy the hospitals, or even dying.

              To be fair, Jebbers has to rush things because he only gets a hour of unsupervised internet every week - and he spends the first 57 minutes unsuccessfully Googling for his mom’s pornos (and not due to lack of available content).

                I'll let you carry that load.

                Instead, I'm doing something useful.

                As I've said, I have a unique heterozygous genetic combo (thanks mom and dad, I think). I've been contacted about my health though Covid. And what risks I'm willing to run. (Don't you love white coat researchers.) Here's what they know:

                Heterozygous carriers of CFTR gene mutations do not develop clinically significant CF. Any possible survival benefits of the CFTR gene mutations in the general population were thus conferred by their presence in the heterozygous CFTR gene mutation carriers. Postulated benefits of a mutated CFTR protein gene includes improved ability to survive after infection with various microbes; as mentioned above, there is evidence for CF carrier state benefit against cholera, typhoid, and tuberculosis. Survival benefits have presumably led to the current high prevalence of CFTR mutations present in the Caucasian population; approximately one out of every 20 to 25 Caucasian individuals is at least heterozygous for a CFTR protein gene mutation. It now appears that the homozygous CFTR gene mutation is demonstrating a survival benefit against a new class of microbial agent (i.e., SARS-CoV-2) with a potentially new and unknown mechanism of action. Whether heterozygous carriers of the CFTR gene mutation are also protected (as seen in the previously mentioned bacterial infections) is an open question.
                I have Class II and a Class IV on this diagram. It makes me as the first sentence says, a "Heterozygous carriers of CFTR gene mutations do not develop clinically significant CF."

                But I'm heterozygous but with two different CFTR related mutations. So am I protected like a homozygous (CF) or not? That's why the white coat interest in me.

                I'm helping to answer the question in the last sentence of the quote.

                • Forgive my naïveté (nice autocorrect!) but is this saying covid doesn't develop into more fibroids? Or is it saying that CF has a protective function from getting covid?

                  edit: apparently the board doesn't like that word. Naivety but with less murica letters

                    Know your risk. Or lack thereof! The average age of death via #COVID19 is 80 years old (and that doesn't even get into from or with). Every 20 years below that risk drops by a factor of 10
                    - 60 yr olds = 10x lower risk
                    - 40 yr olds = 100x lower
                    - 20 yr olds = 1000x lower
                    ONE THOUSAND TIMES LOWER RISK FROM DYING OF COVID


                    Also, this takes the age groups as a whole, healthy, moderately healthy, not healthy, ect... If you break it down further the risk is even lower for healthy and moderately people are at even less risk than illustrated.




                    No one is under any obligation to live inside someone else's psychopathologies. Never forget that.

                      Getting might be strong. The quote is "survival benefit". You'll still catch it; it just won't do much.

                      Some papers point to the normal "easy path" microbial agents look for being mucked up so the agents can't attack. Like the full quote says, "there is evidence for CF carrier state benefit against cholera, typhoid, and tuberculosis" and "homozygous CFTR gene mutation is demonstrating a survival benefit against a new class of microbial agent (i.e., SARS-CoV-2)."

                      I'm, based on my genetics, in on determining if that last in-quote sentence is true or false. Given I don't have two of the same mutation (homozygous), but have two CF related mutations (still heterozygous, yet no clinically significant CF), the researchers believe I still carry the "survival benefit" (aka a form of dare I say God-given natural immunity).

                          • South Dakota with country’s largest surge past two weeks, up 230%.

                            can’t put my finger on why…

                            • It seems that Missouri has found the same downturn after a six-ish week Delta ramp-up that the UK and India had.

                              And Hawaii has the wildest shaped curve (same link, change state in dropdown). It's like they had a biker rally ... I kid, I kid ...
