Viruses and cellular nutrition: an immunologist’s perspective

Studies as far back as the 1960s and 70s looked at the higher rates of infection in malnourished children in developing countries in comparison with those who were adequately nourished. These were epidemiological (population) studies. But laboratory research has been demonstrating the role of micronutrition in cellular immunity for decades, too. "There's no virus that can penetrate a healthy cell fed with nutrition at optimal levels."Dr Myron Wentz, PhD Microbiology, specialty in immunology This was the bold statement made by Dr. Myron Wentz in 2019. On the face of it, this seems like a fairly outrageous claim. But the word [...]

Are we defenseless?

When it comes to viral infections, national health policies focus heavily on disease management and vaccination -- which have their place. But this approach leaves a vacuum: Mainstream media like to perpetuate the belief that we are helpless and incapable of protecting our own health, and sadly, there seems to be an absence of any mention of strengthening the immune system or using the powerful vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals as well as the other physical and mental tools at our disposal.
