“The only other virus that attacks and kills T-cells is HIV, which causes AIDS, said Katzenback.”

Maybe repeatedly infecting our kids with SARSCoV2 wasn’t such a great idea?

Guess we’ll find out.

“With the loss of these T-cells, we are now more vulnerable to all of these other infections, other viruses, other bacteria,” said Katzenback.

“Individuals who are infected with COVID have many fewer T-cells,” said Katzenback. “That’s a problem for us because T-cells are a really important part of our immune system that helps defend us against infection.”

A funny thing is happening as I regain parts of my life as a result of receiving #HBOT after a 14 month battle with #LongCovid. While I'm incredibly grateful to be one of the lucky ones who found a treatment they respond to I'm also trying to come to terms with the possibility
That some of the damage maybe permanent. For example the other day I was taking the boat out after a spin up the river, there is a winch on the stern that keeps the boat on the trailer. I couldn't figure out how it works. I've been using those winches for years. Literally like
Second nature to me. It operates in such a way as you have to have several things lined up so it will tighten properly. Not matter what I did I could not put the pieces together. #Brainfog means I am unable to do tasks which require multiple areas of focus.

How long would the #COVID19 #pandemic have lasted without the #vaccine?

We have two ways to answer this question: the first is the #historical one, i.e. looking at the past and understanding how many years the previous pandemics caused by respiratory #viruses lasted. (1/9) Image
The available data tell us that all pandemics caused by respiratory #viruses lasted about two years:

-Influenza A H1N1 (swine flu), caused by an #influenza A virus of swine origin, lasted from April 2009 to August 2010.

-Influenza A H3N2 (Hong Kong flu), (2/9)
caused by an influenza A virus that emerged in 1968 and replaced the previous H2N2 #virus, which lasted until 1970.

Influenza A H2N2 (Asian flu), caused by an #influenza A virus that emerged in 1957 and replaced the previous H1N1 virus, which lasted until 1958. (3/9)

#Health #Insurance #India
Public sector general insurance companies in India are facing a huge challenge as they continue to lose market share in their #healthinsurance portfolio to private insurance Cos. Should you switch from a PSU to a Pvt Insurer
A thread🧵
1/n ⬇️
According to #Statista Pvt insurers across India held around 49 %  of the industry’s market share in FY 2021, compared to 36 % by public sector insurers. Standalone health insurers had a market share of around 8 % and specialized insurers had a market share of over 6 %
Public sector insurers are facing challenges such as low profitability, high claims ratio, outdated products, poor customer service, and lack of innovation. They have also been unable to compete with the aggressive pricing and marketing strategies of the private players.

7 Simple Life Hacks for You! A twitter thread...

Here are simple tips to improve your #life and feel the difference. Here’s how you can do it: Image
1) Prioritize Your Health

It doesn’t take time to stay #healthy, wealthy, and wise. Unfortunately, we don’t pay much attention to our personal well-being.

You should know that no work is more important than your #health. Whatever you do make sure it doesn’t affect your health.
Here’s what I do:

Every morning, I practice #yoga for my mental and physical well-being. In addition, I always make sure that my daily diet includes leafy vegetables and fresh fruits. Because I believe health is wealth.

One patient reports, “After 3 years of living with debilitating
Long Covid, and trying myriad solutions, Professor Andrew Shaw's approach in collaboration with Dr Steve Allder at @RecognitionHealth, has given me by far and away the biggest boost to my health. Since plugging my ‘antibody gap’ I’ve seen a dramatic decrease in brain fog,
migraines and a very big increase in gut health. It’s still relatively early days, but after 3 long years I feel more confident than I ever have done that my symptoms will continue to improve until I reach full recovery.”

Wood burning can cause cancer, esp lung cancer, respiratory disease, heart disease, dementia, premature death, & other health issues which are devastating. Wood burning emits more CO2 than gas. Inaction and silence on this affects everyone.
No laws to stop residential burning (fireplaces, fire pits, backyard burning, planned burns), & no public campaign on the dangers of residential burning means anyone can burn and emit smoke into your home. No action now, leaves you, the next generation, & environment unprotected

This is borderline fraud by #Health and General #insurance companies in #India
The Misuse of "The Reasonable and Customary Clause" in #HealthInsurance
A Thread 🧵
We all know that health insurance is crucial, but a concerning trend has re-emerged post the pandemic in India. Insurance companies are back to misusing the "reasonable and customary clause" to reduce reimbursement claims, leaving ordinary people in a difficult situation.
🏥 Understanding the "Reasonable and Customary Clause"

The clause sets the maximum amount an insurance company will reimburse for medical procedures. It aims to prevent overcharging. However, some companies are misusing this provision

Looking for a 1 crore #Health #insurance cover?
A stand alone #Healthinsurance policy of 1 crore or a combination of a 10 lakh base + 90 lakh Super Top up policy, which one will you choose.
A 🧵
The rising cost of healthcare and the need for adequate health insurance coverage, makes it extremely important to have a sufficiently large health insurance cover, to take care of any unforseen expenses due to hospitalisation or prolonged treatment of critical illnesses.
Let's discuss why combining a base policy of 10 lakh with a super top-up of 90 lakh is a more cost-effective option compared to a standalone 1 crore health insurance policy, choose what works for you but if premium is an important consideration read further.

Met the Branch head of a prominent stand alone #Health #insurance company. What he said is going to spoil the annual budget of middle class indians more so senior citizens.
A thread🧵
The discussion was on the sustained and lumpy increase in health insurance premiums in the past few years where senior citizens are now paying DOUBLE of what they were paying 3 years ago.
He gave the example of what's happening with costs negotiated with network hospitals.
Gall bladder removal surgery in 5* hospitals 3 years ago was capped at 1.25 lakh
The same is up for renegotiation now at 3.25 lakh.
These are figures for Tier 1 metro cities . Many health insurance cos are charging premium basis the city where you stay in.

I went to #Islamabad #PIMS a day earlier and asked for rabies #vaccine, #rabies is a deadly virus and there's 100% chance a person will die if vaccination isn't administered on time. However, the person in the picture, at #PIMS's pharmacy,
@IslamabadPims @nhsrcofficial Image
told me very arrogantly to buy and administer the vaccine somewhere else. When I asked for his name, he hesitated, but when I insisted, he said I'm the director and there is no one you can go to and complain.
I requested him that I can afford the vaccine but what about those who may not afford the same, and that I am a citizen of #Pakistan and I am aware of my rights, thus let me lodge a formal complaint to the relevant department so the problem may soon be resolved.

Frustrating but important perspective by @PeterHotez:

"The phenomenon of red Covid was not a random occurrence but instead an expected outcome of predation linked to extremist politics"

Read in full:

A few thoughts follow 🔽…
In this perspective, Dr. Hotez offers some insights on the topics I have been writing & talking about, namely the #weaponization of conspiracy #myths by political actors to attack unwelcome scientific authority in public discourse.

He first outlines the damage: Needless deaths Image
How could it have come so far?

For Dr. Hotez, part of that answer lies with anti-science messaging from political elites; how else does one explain the "red covid" phenomenon?

Furthermore, there has been no course correction by political elites. If anything, they doubled down Image
