Study Indicates That Smokers are Less Likely to Contract Coronavirus Because of Nicotine’s Effect on Lungs

French researchers found these startling discoveries.

Researchers studying the COVID-19 coronavirus at a French public hospital have made a startling observation that nicotine likely causes individuals to develop a resistance to being infected with coronavirus.

They noted that only 8.5 percent of French individuals hospitalized at the facility due to coronavirus were smokers while 25.4 percent of the general public are smokers. This discrepancy caused them to delve into why this may be the case, and the conclusions they came to are shocking.

“Our cross-sectional study strongly suggests that those who smoke every day are much less likely to develop a symptomatic or severe infection with Sars-CoV-2 compared with the general population. The effect is significant. It divides the risk by five for ambulatory patients and by four for those admitted to hospital. We rarely see this in medicine,” the researchers wrote.

According to an English translation of the press release, their findings show “that active smokers are protected against the Sars-Cov-2 infection” and they believe that “nicotine could be a candidate” for why smokers are seemingly insulated from the virus. The researchers theorized on how this might work.

“Although the chemistry of tobacco smoke is complex, these data are consistent with the hypothesis that its protective role takes place through direct action on various types of nAChRs [nicotine receptors] expressed in neurons, immune cells (including macrophages), cardiac tissue, lungs, and blood vessels,” they wrote in an article that will be printed in the near future.

The French researchers are urging people not to take up smoking due to these preliminary findings, but they are looking into treating coronavirus patients with nicotine patches. Clinical trials for using nicotine to treat coronavirus are in the works and pending approval from French health authorities.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned smokers that they may be more likely to contract coronavirus, although they provide no real evidence to back up their claim.

“People who smoke cigarettes may be at increased risk of infection with the virus that causes Covid-19, and may have worse outcomes from Covid-19,” the agency said in an email response to Bloomberg News.

They noted that smoking “causes heart and lung diseases, suppresses the immune system, and increases the risk of respiratory infections” and warned that vaping exposes the lungs to harmful chemicals.

As usual, the federal swamp is standing in the way of innovative potential ways to treat coronavirus as thousands suffer with the illness.

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds Refuses to Implement Widespread Mask Mandates and Bar Closures Over Newest COVID-19 Panic

Another Republican governor with courage.

Published

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds (R) is refusing to implement Draconian mask mandates and bar closures despite recent reports that cases are surging throughout the state.

According to a report in The Guardian, cases of COVID-19 are spiking throughout Iowa. Ames and Iowa City, two college towns, are reportedly being hit hard due to young people refusing to live their lives in fear.

“Community transmission continues to be high in rural and urban counties across Iowa, with increasing transmission in the major university towns,” a fear-mongering report from the White House coronavirus task force warned. “Mask mandates across the state must be in place to decrease transmission.”

Reynolds thus far is not bucking to political pressure that would lock down the state, crippling small businesses and making a mockery of the Bill of Rights and Constitution. She has only closed bars in six counties throughout the state while just “strongly encouraging” people to wear masks, arguing that they are “not a silver bullet.”

“I still believe it’s up to the governors in the various states to make those decisions,” Reynolds said in her refusal to let the feds usurp her authority.

Reynolds believes that it is “social activity among young adults” that is causing the virus to spread more quickly. Young people are the least likely to die from COVID-19, with new figures released by the CDC indicating that the vast majority of people who died from the virus had serious comorbidities. The facts, however, are not stopping the fear cultists from arguing for another shutdown.

“Our numbers are clearly terrifying,” said University of Iowa associate professor Naomi Greyser to CNN. “They’re really scary and my students are scared.” Greyser and other academics hope to get paid by the taxpayer for not doing their jobs this school year because of COVID-19.

Republican U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa is casting doubt on the numbers that are being reported by medical professionals.

“These healthcare providers and others are reimbursed at a higher rate if Covid is tied to it, so what do you think they’re doing?” Ernst said.

Although the Iowa Medical Society called Ernst’s comments “incredibly disappointing,” there have been many reports of case numbers being exaggerated or falsified throughout the country, as Big League Politics has noted:

Many states are inflating their reports of COVID-19 cases by counting positive antibody tests among those who have the illness, according to a report from Nicole Saphier, M.D…

This has reportedly resulted in people being counted twice due to testing positive for COVID-19 and then testing positive for having antibodies.

Making the situation even more of a cluster, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have claimed that antibody tests are wrong at least half of the time.

“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about grouping persons residing in or being admitted to congregate settings, such as schools, dormitories, or correctional facilities,” the CDC wrote in their guidelines.

“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about returning persons to the workplace,” they continued.

“In most of the country, including areas that have been heavily impacted, the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibody is expected to be low, ranging from less than 5% to 25%, so that testing at this point might result in relatively more false positive results and fewer false-negative results,” the CDC determined.

The Republicans of Iowa are showing the backbone that is needed to prevented America from permanently losing all of her liberties due to COVID-19 mass hysteria.
