SCIENCE: Nicotine Inhibits Cytokine Storms
Quote:Nicotine is a nonselective agonist of the α7Ach receptor and is able to suppress the production of proinflammatory cytokines by mimicking the binding of acetylcholine. It has been demonstrated that nicotine can selectively reduce the inflammatory response in a number of infection scenarios, including Legionella pneumophila (54) and Chlamydia pneumoniae (55) infection; however, it is highly unlikely that nicotine will ever be used clinically due to its toxicity, addictive nature, and lack of specificity.

Unlike the Spanish flu pandemic, which killed mostly young and healthy people, Covid-19 appears to hit the elderly hard. Young people who die as a result of SARS-CoV-2 are sometimes dying in systemic reactions called cytokine storms, but the Spanish flu from 1918-1919 was far more likely to cause cytokine storms than Covid-19 appears to be thus far. This is a very good thing.

British American Tobacco, the maker of brands including Lucky Strike, Dunhill, Rothmans and Benson & Hedges, has said it has a potential coronavirus vaccine in development using tobacco plants.

The Spanish Flu was a global culling, targeting people of breeding age.

The Coronavirus isn't even culling old people at this stage, it's mostly killed terminally ill elderly people only. There is obviously a different motivation behind it compared to the Spanish Flu.

If Nicotine is really effective then non-smokers could chew gum or use patches to protect themselves.

I'm just trying to figure this shit out like you are.

smoking is not good for the lungs obviously, but nicotine has a lot of therapeutic benefits
