    https://www.iherb.com/shipping/it Tons of products. Excellent service. iHerb generally handles all of that and tells you any limitations up front. I get stuff shipped from the U.S. to Siberia and it sails through the notoriously bureaucratic Russian customs regime.

    iHerb ( my main source for supplements etc.) has the Frontiers brand of Ceylon Cinnamon Mike mentioned, and they appear to ship to Italy.

    Fat-phobics also need to be very worried about the significant amounts of saturated fat in nuts and seeds. An occasional piece of fish, of course, is out of the question.
  5. Even if that were true, "mono fats" in general ≠ EVOO. A large number of animal studies have shown that EVOO is in fact anti-artherogenic and cardio-protective. Indeed. Besides the fact that EVOO decreases LDL, decreases LDL oxidation, and promotes reverse cholesterol transport, it also substantially improves endothelial function and reduces atherosclerotic lesions, as proven in animal and human clinical studies, apart from epidemiological evidence. The cardio-protective effects of EVOO ( not to mention anti-cancer and pro-longevity effects) have been shown in the full spectrum of studies-- in vitro, animal, human trials, epidemiological. That evidence has been consistently reproduced in study after study. On the other hand:
  6. Criticism, fwiw: 121 individuals? Out of a clearly biased sample to being with, individuals in NYC who had volunteered to give convalescent plasma? For starters, to give plasma, you have to have had a recent physical, which generally means insured, which means a somewhat higher than the US as a whole baseline of health care. You have to be over 18. You have to be screened out for viruses like HIV, other STDs, and hepatitis. You also can’t have low blood pressure. I would strongly suspect the elderly and obese would be screened out or else severely underrepresented. We also know from the Imperial College study that health care workers had higher antibody levels due to presumably having their immune systems repeatedly Covid-19 challenged. Could some of this 121 live in high-Covid ‘hoods where they wound up having a similar effect? And we are supposed to take this seriously, compared to the Imperial College study of 365,000, where each round (over 100,000) was designed to constitute a very broad sample? While later studies may indicate the antibody decline post infection isn’t quite as dire as the Imperial College study indicated, this Mount Sinai work doesn’t begin to meet that bar.
