Fascinating article on low dose radiation as a treatment for Covid-19.
Dr. Edward Calabrese: “Back in February, I started getting just dozens and dozens and dozens of emails from radiation oncologists —people who treat cancer patients with targeted radiation. And they had come across our paper and they thought that this might be a vehicle by which they could help suffering and dying Covid patients perhaps survive. Clinical trials are now going on across the country.”
I remember reading an interview with Dr. Calabrese, about a decade ago, on the benefits of low dose radiation (radiation hormesis), for the human body. It was quite controversial among some sections the scientific community - the priesthood - as it were. Calabrese charged that the linear no-threshold (LNT) hypothesis was based on a lie.
That 2011 interview is here http://21sci-tech.com/articles_2011/fall-2011/interview_calabrese.pdf
So it is a lie that low doses of radiation are harmful? And perhaps we can use low dose RT to pull folks from the brink of death caused by CV-19? Well, if that all turns out to be true, then fine, I am very glad to hear it. How long will it take them to get this studied and approved?
Whatever actually works that does not have it's own horrible side effects and which they are also willing to look into and willing to do, then I am all for it, thousands are dying. Personally, I prefer to find one of those handful of critical care docs ( I actually know of one only 90 miles away) who are willing to give me some "high dose" IV vitamin C, maybe along with an old, cheap, readily available and pretty safe (many millions of doses have been given over the last 50+ years) prescript
ion drug like methylprednisolone. Along with some thiamine(vit B1), some heparin to minimize the blood clots and the optional vitamin D, magnesium, etc if needed. ( probably are needed for best over all chance of survival) The only likely SEs from the IV vitamin C are most likely going to be positive. And SEs from these drugs ( methylprednisolone and heparin) when given short term and closely monitored are very low, they have both been given for many decades. Many of us have already had these drugs with no lasting ill effect. ( but long term might be different, but we aretalking short term, usually a few days or a week). And their other big advantage: they are all readily available RIGHT NOW, for any doc willing to try them.
So I'd rather go that route if I can find a doctor willing to do it. However, whatever works! If this works and is safe, then bring it on! Thanks for the link!
