indicates that most of what we believed
about the purportedly deadly properties
of viruses like influenza is based on nothing more
institutionalized superstition and myth...
Some of our readers already know that in my previous writings I discuss why the "germs as our enemies" concept has been decimated by the relatively recent discovery of the microbiome.
For in depth background on this topic, read "How the Microbiome Destroyed the Ego, Vaccine Policy and Patriarchy."
You can also read
"Profound Implications of the Virome for Human Health and
Autoimmunity", to get a better understanding of how
viruses are actually beneficial to health.
Worse, those who hold religious or philosophical objections, or who otherwise conscientiously object to vaccinating, are being characterized as doing harm to others by denying them herd immunity (a concept that has been completely debunked by a careful study of the evidence, or lack thereof).
This makes for a picture
of complexity that powerfully undermines health policies that
presuppose vaccination equates to bona fide immunity, and by
implication, necessitates the herd collectively participate in the
mass vaccination campaigns as a
matter of social responsibility and necessity.
The moment the word is used, it already presupposes efficacy, and makes it appear as if non-vaccinators are anti-immunity, instead of what they actually are:
This was the first study ever to plumb the molecular depths of what influenza virus is actually composed of.
Amazingly, given the long history of vaccine use and promotion, the full characterization of what proteins it contains, and where they are derived from, was never previously performed.
How we invest
billions of dollars annually into flu vaccines, and have
created a global campaign to countermand a viral enemy, whose basic
building blocks we don't even know, is hard to understand. But it is
Virion are also known as "viral particles," and they are the means by which viral nucleic acids are able to move and 'infect' living organisms.
Without the viral particle (taxi) to carry around the virus DNA (passenger), it would be harmless.
In fact, viruses are often described as existing somewhere between living and inanimate objects for this reason:
And so, in this first
line, the authors are making it clear that virion composition is
also the primary determinant in how or whether a virus is infectious
(transmits) and what effects it will have in the immune system of
the infected host.
The irony, of course, is that the very things we attribute so much lethality to - viral nucleic acids - are not even alive, and can not infect an organism without all the other components (proteins, lipids, extra-viral nucleic acids) which are, technically, not viral in origin, participating in the process.
And so, if the components that are non-viral are essential for the virus to cause harm, how can we continue to maintain that we are up against a monolithic disease entity "out there" who "infects" us, a passive victim?
It's fundamentally non-sensical, given these findings.
It also clearly
undermines the incessant, fear-based rhetoric those beholden to the
pro-vaccine stance to coerce the masses into undergoing the largely
faith-based rite of vaccination.
But this problem of the great variability in the virion composition of influenza is exactly why the study was conducted.
In other words, they
found that the flu virus is as much comprised of biological material
from the host the virus 'infects,' as the viral genetic material of
the virus per se.
Given that it would not
exist without "self" proteins, or those of other host animals like
birds (avian) or insects, this would be impossible to do with any
intellectual honesty intact.
This means that the virus particles extracted from these hosts would contain foreign proteins, and would therefore produce different and/or unpredictable immunological responses in humans than would be expected from human influenza viral particles.
One possibility is that the dozens of foreign proteins found within avian influenza could theoretically produce antigens in humans that cross-react with self-structures resulting in autoimmunity. Safety testing, presently, does not test for these cross reactions.
Clearly, this discovery
opens up a pandora's box of potential problems that have never
sufficiently been analyzed, since it was never understood until now
that "influenza" is so thoroughly dependent upon a host for its
transmissability and immunogenecity.
What these researchers are talking about is the discovery that virion particles share stunning similarities to naturally occurring virus-like particles produced by all living cells called exosomes.
Exosomes, like many viruses (i.e. enveloped viruses) are enclosed in a membrane, and are within the 50-100 nanometer size range that viruses are (20-400 nm).
They also contain
biologically active molecules, such as proteins and lipids, as well
as information-containing ones like
RNAs - exactly, or very similar,
to the types of contents you find in viral particles.
Both exosomes and viruses may actually be responsible for inter-species or cross-kingdom communication and regulation within the biosphere, given the way they are able to facilitate and mediate horizontal information transfer between organisms.
eating a piece of fruit containing
these exosomes can alter the expression of vitally important genes
within our body.
Not inherently "bad," but, in fact, essential for mediating the genotype/phenotype relationship within organisms, who must adapt to ever-shifting environmental conditions in real-time in order to survive.
This is something the
glacial pace of genetic changes within the primary nucleotide
sequences of our DNA cannot do (for instance, it may take ~ 100,000
years for a protein-coding gene sequence to change versus seconds
for a protein-coding gene's expression to be altered via modulation
via viral or exosomal RNAs).
Sometimes, given many conditions outside their control, their messages could present challenges or misinformation to the cells to which they are exposed, which could result in a "disease symptom."
These disease symptoms
are often if not invariably attempts by the body to self-regulate
and ultimately improve and heal itself.
This could explain why an accumulating body of research on the role of the virome in human health indicates that so-called infectious agents, including viruses like measles, confer significant health benefits.
See the "Health
Benefits of Measles" and "The
Healing Power of Germs?"
Trojan Exosome Hypothesis) may provide such an example.
With the discovery of the indispensable role of the microbiome, and the subpopulation of viruses within it - the virome - we have entered into an entirely new, ecologically-based view of the body and its environs that are fundamentally inseparable.
only thing that influenza may be capable of killing, is germ
You may even start to
understand how we might consider some viruses "our friends," and why
we may need viruses far more than they need us...
