Setting ourselves up for a fall? (27 Jul, 2021)

If you haven't had a cold since CV19 broke out then you may be more vulnerable than those who have, or at least that's what a Stanford University study suggests.

On the good news front however, if CV19 follows the same evolutionary path as the Spanish Flu then the worst will soon be behind us and things may start getting back to normal within the next 12 months or so.

Anyone care to proffer their own predictions?

And has there ever been a better time to adopt the mantra of Carpe Diem?

follows the use it or lose it and germs are good for you mantras

the 1918 is an interesting incite into how deadly viruses effectively kill themselves

by the odd one mutating into a less deadly form but still having the same signature for t cells to recognise, they effectively inoculate the affected against the more deadly varieties

vaccinations just short cut the natural procedure

A successful virus (or any predator for that matter, including human ones) is one that leaves the victim unaware they have been attacked. The common cold is such, only mildly annoying, not enough to break the chain of opportunities to spread from victim to victim and mutating often enough to elude the immune systems so they can come back over & over.
