Some people might not make the conversion from NAC to gluathione and other chemicals.
I wonder if it would be easier/better for some of us to go directly to glutathione instead? It’s more expensive, but might work for some whose bodies dont’ make the conversion as easily.
I too have been wondering what’s going on with Chris.
Can anyone at least tell me what said/announced earlier, or did he just stop appearing without any warning.
I sure could use Chris’s advice right about now.
I too would love to know what’s going on with Chris.
I don’t even know what Chris has said or not said recently about not being here frequently.
Could someone please at least fill me in on what we DO know?
I had no understanding of nor interest in economic years ago. I never cracked open a textbook and read from it. When I was young, my Dad used to try to ram financial info. down my throat. Instead of learning, I rebelled because of how he did that. Neither helped my distaste for ecomomics.
I feel the other reason for lack of interest was that was that I saw economics as this boring, bland science only about numbers. Numbers bore me, and I couldn’t see how any of it applied to me, or affected my life.
One thing changed all that. A very good friend of mine helped teach me the basics of the business cycle, some basics of investing, and etc. This was applied, it was practical. I saw how it related to my life. I cared because I saw how it directly affected me, my bottom line, my lifestyle, my future possibilities.
I slowly realized that economics affected everything, from whether single Moms would have enough to feed their kids, to how much I pay for meat at the store to what type of house was most likely to be built across the street from mine. Economics touches almost every aspect of human (and now, animal/plant/aquatic) life.
Perhaps if you find the theory boring, you can do like many of us did and learn some practice first, then go back to understand the theory behind the practice. The practice definitely made the theory more interesting for me, and easier to understand.
I tend to be biased this way. I learned about computers many moons ago through trial and error. If I had just sat down and read computer science books, I would’ve completely lost interested in computing.
Does that make any sense?
Glad to hear it appears to be helping. Hope you recover quickly.
One of my friends had Covid in May/June. She was partly better, but still had a bad cough, tightness in her lungs and more fatigue than usual.
She borrowed a nebulizer from a friend of ours and nebulized H202. She felt quite a bit better starting just hours later.
It’s only one data point, but maybe it’ll help you. Maybe not.
Thanks! I was hoping you’d come to the rescue here, since you so often post great (and voluminous) info. Yes, somewhere I read a paper or two that water and/or chemicals degrade the performance of the masks and can also degrade their structural strength/integrity.
Acc. to the weixin link (Dr.Liu Haixia of International Medical Center, Beijing), it looks like my steamer is not a good idea for masks.
My thinking is that it should still be good for common household surfaces, however. Comments?
I agree they are likely better than nothing, but I’m aiming higher than that. Of course, I realize everyone has a diff. budget and needs.
I’m posting these links cause I can’t remember which studies were or weren’t posted here, and it might make it easier to have a whole bunch of them posted in the same thread:
Evaluation of Five Decontamination Methods for Filtering Facepiece Respirators
Effects of Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) on N95 Respirator Filtration Performance and Structural Integrity
Evaluation of Microwave Steam Bags for the Decontamination of Filtering Facepiece Respirators
A Novel Anti-Influenza Copper Oxide Containing Respiratory Face Mask
Darn, I’d love to see newer masks use copper oxide.
Trump said today in his press conference that he was disappointed and surprised to hear that so many masks are used and disposed of. I couldn’t agree more. Maybe this will be the motivation to get us to start making these more sustainably.
Would someone pleas re-post links to one or two of the studies done relating to (dry) baking masks? I can’t find them, and as I said, I’d like to be able to refer people to one thread.
Back to steam…anyone have a link…for the life of me, I can’t find the link I found earlier.
Thanks, that’s helpful. I know that from the research papers already posted at this site, baking does degrade the structure of the materials. I wish I knew how much was safe. After all, you don’t want that mask or its straps to fall apart while you’re out and about.
