  1. What COVID-19 Reinfection Means for Vaccines https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/what-covid-19-reinfection-means-for-vaccines/
  2. Cases in some countries seem to be taking off again, kind of a 3rd wave. Some countries like israel and Spain are now at per-capita case loads higher than the US peak. Israel heads to a second lockdown as coronavirus cases soar https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/middle_east/israel-heads-to-a-second-lockdown-as-coronavirus-cases-soar/2020/09/13/4f473fe6-f5a7-11ea-85f7-5941188a98cd_story.html
  3. Lasting Covid damage in a lot of people seems to be real. Tim Spector, professor of genetic epidemiology at King's College London, said about 600,000 people have some sort of post-Coronavirus illness https://www.ibtimes.sg/long-covid-run-man-who-tested-positive-coronavirus-march-says-6-months-still-unwell-51455 45% of of a group of 26 competitive athletes show either current myocarditis or evidence of prior heart injury. Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Findings in Competitive Athletes Recovering From COVID-19 Infection https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamacardiology/fullarticle/2770645 Redefining Covid-19: Months after infection, patients report breathing difficulty, excessive fatigue https://edition.cnn.com/2020/09/13/health/long-haul-covid-fatigue-breathing-wellness/index.html 74% of hospitalized patients reporting continuing symptoms after 12 weeks Patient outcomes after hospitalisation with COVID-19 and implications for follow-up; results from a prospective UK cohort. https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.08.12.20173526v1
  4. Looks like some long term neurological damage in 55% of Covid-recovered individuals in this study from China. They didn't find much correlation between severity of the disease and these results, although my understanding is all of these study participants came from a local hospital, so were hospital-admitted individuals I think.

  5. Research is starting to develop some ideas on how to use drugs to tweak body temp pathways. Linking calorie restriction, body temperature and healthspan https://www.scripps.edu/news-and-events/press-room/2020/20200908-conti-temperature.html Metabolic adaptation to calorie restriction https://stke.sciencemag.org/content/13/648/eabb2490
  6. Here's a table with the AGE content of many foods. Anyone have any other good links for this kind of data? I was surprised walnuts have a lot, is that from the roasting process commercial walnuts have to go through, and would raw organic type walnuts be lower in AGE content? https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3704564/table/T1/
  7. A Supercomputer Analyzed Covid-19 — and an Interesting New Theory Has Emerged https://elemental.medium.com/a-supercomputer-analyzed-covid-19-and-an-interesting-new-theory-has-emerged-31cb8eba9d63 Is a Bradykinin Storm Brewing in COVID-19? https://www.the-scientist.com/news-opinion/is-a-bradykinin-storm-brewing-in-covid-19--67876
  8. This looks interesting Dietary alpha‐ketoglutarate promotes beige adipogenesis and prevents obesity in middle‐aged mice https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/acel.13059
  9. In this study of 100 middle aged (median around 49 yrs) recovered people, 78% have evidence of new cardiac issues and/or ongoing cardiac inflammation. Regardless of pre-existing conditions and Covid-19 severity. These were people with no pre-existing cardiac workups/tests, only 1/3rd of which were hospitalized for Covid-19, so many with mild symptoms.

  11. Appears to be some longer-lasting immune system damage in recovered hospital patients. Broad phenotypic alterations and potential dysfunctions of lymphocytes in COVID-19 recovered individuals https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.07.01.20144030v1
  12. Risk of stroke is almost eight times higher for COVID-19 patients than for flu patients, study finds https://www.minnpost.com/second-opinion/2020/07/risk-of-stroke-is-almost-eight-times-higher-for-covid-19-patients-than-for-flu-patients-study-finds/
  13. Exercise can slow or prevent vision loss, study finds https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/07/200701100025.htm Exercise can slow or prevent the development of macular degeneration and may benefit other common causes of vision loss, such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, new research suggests.

    Neu5Gc: Cause Of Atherosclerosis?

    Besides it being in milk & cheese, also of note is salmon is fairly high in it.
  15. Here's a new paper demonstrating that the vast majority of the economic drop was not due to official government lockdowns, but rather individual people's decisions. So don't blame the government for most of the economic damage or turmoil, blame the virus, and blame anyone who doesn't want to participate with all known reasonable measures to reduce the viral activity such as mask wearing. Any "pro-business" leaders who are not vigorously promoting mask-wearing are shooting themselves and the economy in the foot.
