Maybe teaching chem would have given you the elusive trojan horse for the lyme cure ...jk ..congrats ..hey speaking of horses , curious what do you know about gallium nitrate ?
Never heard of it before. A quick search showed it's effectiveness in treating various types of tumors. It was not effective against others. It shares characteristics with other metals like Al and Thalium so too much of it would be a bad thing. It does cause kidney issues and hyperfusion would be necessary to avoid nephron damage during treatment. One study showed that 69% to 91% was recovered in the urine so the body seems to retain some of it.
Just from the little I know about
other metals, I would say that it is possible that the gallium is incorporated into the cellular structure of a pathogen which limits its ability to influence our physiology. It is plausible that it helps us kill what we need to kill. This is just pure speculation after reading about
it for 2 minutes so who knows.
