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.

RE: SCIENCE: Nicotine Inhibits Cytokine Storms
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 working on plant-based coronavirus vaccine
Cigarette maker says tobacco plants offer potential for faster and safer drug development


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.

BAT has turned the vast resources usually focused on creating products that pose health risks to millions of smokers worldwide to battling the global pandemic.

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

The question is, for me anyway, is how often can you smoke with out having an addiction.

When I was in college I smoked when I drank at bars. Now that I don't drink I'd be curious if I could have a few smokes a week and not be addicted.

RE: SCIENCE: Nicotine Inhibits Cytokine Storms
i know a lot of social smokers who just smoke when they drink

that seems to be the healthiest option

total abstinence from alcohol, smokes etc. is probably not that good for you either

Stress kills faster than anything

you could probably try Nicotine salt vaping which is just nicotine with benzoic acid

that way you just get the nicotine without all the other additives

The Norwegian Health Authority just removed smoking from their list of COVID risk-factors. But they had the honesty to announce the fact in a press release. If the CDC has also decided to de-list smoking, they don't yet appear to be willing to admit it openly.

Quote:Note - You may remember that CDC recently issued a report on over 7,000 COVID cases, categorized by associated underlying condition or risk factor. In the text of the report, CDC included smoking as a risk factor, but their own numbers didn't support that classification. The main Table showed current smoking was reported by only 1.3% of patients, and the percentage did not significantly increase with severity of infection. See Table: https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/m...tm#T1_down

Today, CDC issued another report, with a similar Table. But this time, smoking isn't mentioned at all, and isn't listed as a risk factor in the Table. Compare Table: https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/m..._w#T1_down

NICOTINE was removed.. they should mention that NICOTINE inhibits CYTOKINE storms
