In 1961 the @ACSNews, @AHAScience, the National TB Association & @APHA sent a joint letter to @POTUS Kennedy asking to appoint a national commission to investigate the link between smoking and health, without wanting to threaten the freedom of the tobacco industry. 🧵

Dovetailing off MMPs, for menstruating people, I am curious if the expected hormonal fluctuation and necessary cyclical tissue breakdown could be associated with a higher risk for barrier permeability and pathogen translocation?

As a former division 1 athlete and personal trainer this fatigue is strikingly similar to when people train to complete mechanical or metabolic failure, where the body starts to utilize anaerobic energy pathways & forms of energy conservation due to rapidly depleting resources.
I have been *waiting* for this type of extensive autopsy study to be be performed since I first learned about #COVID19. 3/2020-3/2021
N=44 autopsies; Brains = 11
Great care taken to be performed within 24 hrs of death.
None vaccinated. Prior to variants.
@ahandvanish 1/ Patients with Long Covid (also called "Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2" Infection or "PASC") can experience a variety of symptoms over multiple organ systems, varying in intensity and duration. #LongCovid can occur weeks to months after mild or asymptomatic acute infection,
@ahandvanish 2/ as well as more severe COVID-19, sometimes overlapping with Post Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS). The most promising trials are being done in small groups. For clots/microclots @resiapretorius@dbkell in South Africa/UK and @doctorasadkhan with German/UK team.
