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.

Former British Spy Chief Believes COVID-19 Was Created in a Chinese Lab ‘As an Accident’

The security expert points to evidence to back his claim.

Sir Richard Dearlove, who was the former leader of the MI6 secret intelligence service in Britain, has said that he believes COVID-19 was created in a Chinese laboratory.

Dearlove told The Telegraph that he came to his informed conclusion after seeing an “important” new scientific report indicating that the virus was made by man and did not emerge naturally. The study he cited was undertaken by Professor Angus Dalgleish of St George’s Hospital, University of London, and Norwegian virologist Birger Sorensen.

These scientists discovered “inserted sections placed on the Sars-CoV-2 Spike surface,” which allows the virus to more easily invade cells. They also noted that the virus was “significantly different from any Sars we have studied” in their report. Although they stopped short of calling it a deliberate bioweapon, they came to the conclusion that the virus was in fact man made.

Dearlove, who led MI6 from from 1999 until 2004, believes that this news will eventually be used to compel China to pay “reparations” to nations across the world for the damage they have caused with their virus.

“I do not think that this started as an accident,” Dearlove said while appearing on the “Planet Normal” podcast.

“I think it will make every country in the world rethink how it treats its relationship with China,” he added.

Big League Politics has reported for many months on how it was obvious that the coronavirus pandemic began as the result of Chinese mad science:

A molecular biologist is blowing the whistle regarding reports that the Chinese coronavirus was not designed as a weapon of bioterrorism.

Richard H. Ebright, a professor of chemical biology at Rutgers University, believes that it is entirely possible that the coronavirus could be a bioweapon and those claims should not be dismissed before serious inquiry can be conducted.

“A denial is not a refutation,” Ebright said in reference to Chinese virologist Shi Zhengli, who works at the research lab in Wuhan that has been widely speculated to be behind the coronavirus outbreak.

The research facility in Wuhan opened up in 2017 despite objections that highly infectious diseases could spread from the center…

Ebright praised Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) for his willingness to push back against Chinese propaganda with regards to the origins of the coronavirus.

“After concealing the virus for many weeks in December and then minimizing its severity for most of January, they then peddle an origin story about the food market in Wuhan.” Cotton said during an interview with The Daily Caller.

“Given their dishonesty and the proximity of these labs, which we know were working with coronaviruses, it is only reasonable and responsible for us to ask the question and demand the answers,” he added.

The truth is finally coming out about the origins of coronavirus, which is probably why race riots were promulgated by the fake news media at this very moment.
