The latest piece of evidence to confirm many of the revelations we’ve published for the past year or so. You have to read back to get more of the picture we’re about to sketch here.


We can’t offer informed consent for these experiments conducted on us because we are not offered much information. Only rich people can access some of it at prices most of us can’t dream. Maybe you can, or maybe people start donating enough so we can afford surviving another month and buying this info for the purpose of making it freely available to everyone, as it should be.

What am I talking about is the book pictured in our cover illustration and detailed below, which costs well over 1000$!

More precisely $1185 just for a single license PDF, the hardcover print would cost you about 100 more.

Why is this thing so expensive, you may ask?

THESE INFORMATIONS ARE SO EXPENSIVE EXACTLY TO BE PROHIBITIVE TO THE PLEBS AND OFFER A LEVERAGE OVER THOSE WHO ARE KEPT OUT OF THE LOOP, IN THE DARK

Predictably so, but:

These informations also must to have the highest degree of accuracy in order to sell as expensively!

Superb quality book delivered in a timely fashion with full financial documentation received via email.

Testimonial by Dr Tom Kidd, Associate Professor, University of Nevada

Bonus for us, this book is from May 2020, so it must have been elaborated prior to April 2020. This means it might be outdated by now for investors, but witty investigators like us find an advantage in this:

THE BOOK HAS BEEN ELABORATED WITH BEHIND THE SCENES SCIENCE ON THE INDUSTRIES WHICH, IN TURN MUST HAVE HAD PRE-SCIENCE ON THE PLANDEMIC!
There was no publicly available information in March to build such a book, and the industries they talk about must have been prescient, way ahead of the writers.
Only the fact that this book existed in May 2020 is single-handedly proving there was a whole lot of awareness in some industries about the pandemic.
Corroborated with all other evidence we’ve provided on this website, pandemic pre-planning, ergo pre-science, becomes a certitude.

Until plebs learn the GameStop lesson properly and start associating their financial power to break this classism and this information gatekeeping, we have to be happy with whatever meat we can chew from the bones they throw out.
Luckily for you, I can show you how to suck a bone dry and use it to find more.
It’s not going to be a full course, but it might become more than most people can load up.

Let’s start with the description (highlights are mine):

Can we dig more clues though?

Sir, yes, sir!

I’m going to do something unusual and seemingly unpractical copying here the whole table of contents, just in case, because almost every chapter and figure title deserves to be a separate post on this website as well, besides the multitude of leads as to what to research.

BESIDES THE DANGERS OF NANOBOTS, THIS INDUSTRY IS AN ENVIRONMENTAL CANCER AND A TOP CO2 PRODUCER

from Straight Magazine July 20th, 2011 :

Tiny nanoparticles could be a big problem

Ian Illuminato of Friends of the Earth says consumers deserve a say in nanotech regulation. JIM THOMAS/ETC GROUP

Nanotechnology was supposed to revolutionize the world, making us healthier and producing cleaner energy. But it’s starting to look more like a nightmare.

Nanomaterials—tiny particles as little as 1/100,000 the width of a human hair—have quietly been used since the 1990s in hundreds of everyday products, everything from food to baby bottles, pills, beer cans, computer keyboards, skin creams, shampoo, and clothes.

But after years of virtually unregulated use, scientists are now starting to say the most commonly used nanoproducts could be harming our health and the environment.

One of the most widespread nanoproducts is titanium dioxide. More than 5,000 tonnes of it are produced worldwide each year for use in food, toothpaste, cosmetics, paint, and paper (as a colouring agent), in medication and vitamin capsules (as a nonmedicinal filler), and in most sunscreens (for its anti-UV properties).

In food, titanium-dioxide nanoparticles are used as a whitener and brightener in confectionary products, cheeses, and sauces. Other nanoparticles are employed in flavourings and “nutritional” additives, and to reduce fat content in “health” foods.

In the journal Cancer Research in 2009, environmental-health professor Robert Schiestl coauthored the first comprehensive study of how titanium-dioxide nanoparticles affect the genes of live animals. Mice in his study suffered DNA and chromosomal damage after drinking water with the nanoparticles for five days.

“It should be removed from food and drugs, and there’s definitely no reason for it in cosmetic products,” said cancer specialist Schiestl, who is also a professor of pathology and radiation oncology at UCLA’s school of medicine.

“The study shows effects [from the nanoparticles] on all kinds of genetic endpoints,” Schiestl told the Georgia Straight in a phone interview from his office. “All those are precursor effects of cancer. It’s a wake-up call to do something.”

After Schiestl’s study came out, he said, he started getting calls from nervous people saying they had discovered titanium dioxide was listed as a nonmedicinal ingredient in their prescription medication. “They wanted to know how to get it out,” he said. “I said, ”˜I don’t know how to get it out.’ ”

Schiestl’s study is cited by groups like Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth in their calls for a moratorium on nanomaterials in food and consumer products.

“They were thought to be safe. Our study shows a lot of harm,” Schiestl said.

Nanoparticles can be harmful because they are so tiny they can pass deep into the skin, lungs, and blood. They are made by burning or crushing regular substances like titanium, silver, or iron until they turn into an ultrafine dust, which is used as a coating on, or ingredient in, various products.

Schiestl is now studying two other common nanoparticles, zinc oxide and cadmium oxide, and he has found they also cause DNA and chromosomal damage in mice.

Yet two years after Schiestl’s first study, titanium dioxide and other nanoparticles remain virtually unregulated in Canada and the U.S. Products containing nanoparticles still don’t have to be labelled, and manufacturers don’t have to prove they are safe for health or the environment.

In fact, only a small fraction of the hundreds of nanomaterials on the market have been studied to see if they are safe.

“The public has had little or no say on this. It’s mostly industry guiding government to make sure this material isn’t regulated,” said Ian Illuminato, a nanotech expert with Friends of the Earth, speaking from his home office in Victoria.

“Consumers aren’t given the right to avoid this. We think it’s dangerous and shouldn’t be in contact with the public and the environment,” he said.

Meanwhile, the number of products using nanomaterials worldwide has shot up sixfold in just a couple of years, from 212 in 2006 to more than 1,300 in 2011, according to a report in March by the Washington, D.C.–based Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies.

Those numbers are based on self-reporting by industry, and the real numbers are thought to be much higher. A Canadian government survey in 2009 found 1,600 nanoproducts available here, according to a report in December from the ETC Group, an Ottawa-based nonprofit that studies technology.

Nanotech is worth big money. More than $250 billion of nano-enabled products were produced globally in 2009, according to Lux Research, a Boston-based technology consultancy. That figure is expected to rise 10-fold, to $2.5 trillion, by 2015.

Lux Research estimated in 2006 that one-sixth of manufactured output would be based on nanotechnology by 2014.

Nanotech already appears to be affecting people’s health. In 2009, two Chinese factory workers died and another five were seriously injured in a plant that made paint containing nanoparticles.

The seven young female workers developed lung disease and rashes on their face and arms. Nanoparticles were found deep in the workers’ lungs.

“These cases arouse concern that long-term exposure to some nanoparticles without protective measures may be related to serious damage to human lungs,” wrote Chinese medical researchers in a 2009 study on the incident in the European Respiratory Journal.

When inhaled, some types of nanoparticles have been shown to act like asbestos, inflaming lung tissue and leading to cancer. In 2009, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Cancer Research declared titanium dioxide to be “possibly carcinogenic to humans” after studies found that inhaling it in nanoparticle form caused rats to develop lung cancer and mice to suffer organ damage.

Nanoparticles can also hurt the skin. All those nanoparticles in skin creams and sunscreens may be behind a rise in eczema rates in the developed world, according to a 2009 study in the journal Experimental Biology and Medicine. The study found that titanium-dioxide nanoparticles caused mice to develop eczema. The nanoparticles “can play a significant role in the initiation and/or progression of skin diseases”, the study said.

Schiestl said nanoparticles could also be helping to fuel a rise in the rates of some cancers. He wouldn’t make a link with any specific kind of cancer, but data from the U.S. National Cancer Institute show that kidney and renal-pelvis cancer rates rose 24 percent between 2000 and 2007 in the U.S., while the rates for melanoma of the skin went up 29 percent and thyroid cancer rose 54 percent.

Schiestl said workers who deal with nanoparticles could be the most affected. That concern prompted the International Union of Food, Farm, and Hotel Workers to call in 2007 for a moratorium on commercial uses of nanotechnology in food and agriculture.

But despite all the health risks, we may already have run out of time to determine many of nanotech’s health impacts, Schiestl said.

“Nanomaterial is so ubiquitous that it would be very difficult to do an epidemiological study because there would be no control group of people who don’t use it.”

What happens when nanoparticles get out into the environment in wastewater or when products are thrown out?

Nanosilver is the most common nanomaterial on the market. Its extraordinary antimicrobial properties have earned it a place in a huge variety of products, including baby pacifiers, toothpaste, condoms, clothes, and cutting boards.

Virginia Walker, a biology professor at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, decided to study nanosilver one day after a grad student said her mother had bought a new washing machine that doused clothes with silver nanoparticles to clean them better.

It sounded intriguing, Walker recalled thinking, but what would happen if nanosilver in the laundry water wound up in the environment? “What would it do to the bacterial communities out there?” she wondered.

On a whim, Walker decided to study the question. She figured the nanosilver would probably have no impact on beneficial microbes in the environment because any toxicity would be diluted.

“I did the experiment almost as a lark, not expecting to find anything,” she said by phone. “I hoped I would not find anything.”

In fact, Walker found that nanosilver was “highly toxic” to soil bacteria. It was especially toxic to one kind of nitrogen-fixing bacterium that is important to plant growth.

“If you had anything that was sensitive to nanoparticles, the last thing you would want is to have this microbe affected,” Walker said in a phone interview from her office.

The study prompted Walker to do more studies on nanoparticles. In one study now being reviewed for publication, one of her students found that mice exposed to nanoparticles developed skeletal abnormalities.

“People should have their eyes open. There are so many different nanoparticles, and the consequences of their use could be grave. We know almost nothing about these things,” Walker said.

Other scientists have raised concerns about nanosilver too. Some clothes makers now put it in socks and shirts, promising it will help control body odour. In a 2008 study in the Washington, D.C.–based journal Environmental Science and Technology, researchers took nanosilver-laced socks and washed them in water. They found the socks released up to half of their nanosilver into the water.

“If you start releasing ionic silver, it is detrimental to all aquatic biota. Once the silver ions get into the gills of fish, it’s a pretty efficient killer,” said study coauthor Troy Benn, a graduate student at Arizona State University, in a ScienceDaily.com story in 2008.

“I’ve spoken with a lot of people who don’t necessarily know what nanotechnology is, but they are out there buying products with nanoparticles in them.”

And what about the promise that nanotech could produce cleaner energy? The idea was that nanoparticles could make solar panels more efficient, be used as fuel additives to improve gas mileage, and make lighter cars and planes.

Most of the promised efficiency gains haven’t materialized, according to a 2010 report from Friends of the Earth. And it turns out that making nanomaterial is itself a huge energy guzzler.

A kilogram of carbon nanotubes—a nanoparticle used in cancer treatment and to strengthen sports equipment—requires an estimated 167 barrels of oil to produce, the Friends of the Earth report said.

Carbon nanotubes are “one of the most energy intensive materials known to humankind”, said a 2010 report to a symposium of the U.S.–based Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.

That report said many nanoproducts may remain profitable despite their high energy cost only because of enormous government subsidies to the nanotech industry—$1.6 billion from the U.S. government last year.

But despite all this, regulation of nanotech remains glacially slow. The European Parliament voted nearly unanimously to recommend that nanoproducts be banned from food in 2009. But the European Commission rejected that recommendation last year, agreeing only that it may require labels on food containing nanomaterials. It will also require labels on cosmetics containing some nanoingredients starting in 2014.

Canada and the U.S. have yet to go even that far. At Health Canada, which regulates nanotechnology, a web page dealing with nanoproducts hasn’t been amended in four years and contains outdated information.

Health Canada spokesman Stéphane Shank did not return calls.

They used to say small is beautiful. But that was before small got scary. – Straight.com

NO MEANS NO, YES MEANS NO TOO

So yeah, that’s it for now, and if you think this is not enough to prove much, you can’t be more wrong, you’re probably bathing in dangerous or lethal nanotech as you read this, but feel free to return to this link in the coming days and weeks, I will be adding more evidence as I dig it out. I have about 100 leads there, it’s going to be a long process, friends!

I don’t know if they do it, because no independent researchers examine those swabs, but I have always pointed out that our overlords seem more concerned with testing than with vaccinating. Almost like the vaccines were the bait and tests were the switch. And now we also know they totally CAN do that.

Inspired by a parasitic worm that digs its sharp teeth into its host’s intestines, Johns Hopkins researchers have designed tiny, star-shaped microdevices that can latch onto intestinal mucosa and release drugs into the body.

David Gracias, Ph.D., a professor in the Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering, and Johns Hopkins gastroenterologist Florin M. Selaru, M.D., director of the Johns Hopkins Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center, led a team of researchers and biomedical engineers that designed and tested shape-changing microdevices that mimic the way the parasitic hookworm affixes itself to an organism’s intestines.

Made of metal and thin, shape-changing film and coated in a heat-sensitive paraffin wax, “theragrippers,” each roughly the size of a dust speck, potentially can carry any drug and release it gradually into the body.

The team published results of an animal study this week as the cover article in the journal Science Advances.

Gradual or extended release of a drug is a long-sought goal in medicine. Selaru explains that a problem with extended-release drugs is they often make their way entirely through the gastrointestinal tract before they’ve finished dispensing their medication.

“Normal constriction and relaxation of GI tract muscles make it impossible for extended-release drugs to stay in the intestine long enough for the patient to receive the full dose,” says Selaru, who has collaborated with Gracias for more than 10 years. “We’ve been working to solve this problem by designing these small drug carriers that can autonomously latch onto the intestinal mucosa and keep the drug load inside the GI tract for a desired duration of time.”

Thousands of theragrippers can be deployed in the GI tract. When the paraffin wax coating on the grippers reaches the temperature inside the body, the devices close autonomously and clamp onto the colonic wall. The closing action causes the tiny, six-pointed devices to dig into the mucosa and remain attached to the colon, where they are retained and release their medicine payloads gradually into the body. Eventually, the theragrippers lose their hold on the tissue and are cleared from the intestine via normal gastrointestinal muscular function.

Taken from the original research annexes

Gracias notes advances in the field of biomedical engineering in recent years.

“We have seen the introduction of dynamic, microfabricated smart devices that can be controlled by electrical or chemical signals,” he says. “But these grippers are so small that batteries, antennas and other components will not fit on them.”

Theragrippers, says Gracias, don’t rely on electricity, wireless signals or external controls. “Instead, they operate like small, compressed springs with a temperature-triggered coating on the devices that releases the stored energy autonomously at body temperature.”

The Johns Hopkins researchers fabricated the devices with about 6,000 theragrippers per 3-inch silicon wafer. In their animal experiments, they loaded a pain-relieving drug onto the grippers. The researchers’ studies found that the animals into which theragrippers were administered had higher concentrates of the pain reliever in their bloodstreams than did the control group. The drug stayed in the test subjects’ systems for nearly 12 hours versus two hours in the control group.

“Key to our findings is the demonstration that S1 promotes loss of barrier integrity in an advanced 3D microfluidic model of the human BBB, a platform that more closely resembles the physiological conditions at this CNS interface. Evidence provided suggests that the SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins trigger a pro-inflammatory response on brain endothelial cells that may contribute to an altered state of BBB function. Together, these results are the first to show the direct impact that the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein could have on brain endothelial cells; thereby offering a plausible explanation for the neurological consequences seen in COVID-19 patients.”

Intranasal Delivery Therapy

Currently, many studies are being conducted on developing a method for delivering nanoparticles into the nasal cavity as a safe and more effective countermeasure against viral infection and treatment.180 Since SARS-CoV-2 initiates infection on the mucosal surface of the eye or nasal cavity, mucosal therapy is the most important strategy for treating such infectious diseases. Delivery through the nasal cavity is not only simple and inexpensive but also non-invasive, and the NP is rapidly absorbed due to the cavity’s abundant capillary plexus and large surface area.181 The properties of the NPs, such as the surface charge, size, and shape, are important factors to be considered while optimizing the method of delivery to the nasal cavity and play a critical role in effective and safe treatment.182 Studies have been conducted using small animals to evaluate the system that is delivered to the lungs by administering NPs to the nasal cavity. Therefore, findings of these animal studies cannot be easily generalized to humans. To date, three types of NPs (organic, inorganic, and virus-like NPs) have been designed with delivery capabilities that are suitable for therapeutic purposes, which can also be administered intranasally for effective delivery.

Nasal-nanotechnology: revolution for efficient therapeutics delivery

Drug Delivery 2016;  Epub 2014 Jun 5.

Abstract

Context: In recent years, nanotechnology-based delivery systems have gained interest to overcome the problems of restricted absorption of therapeutic agents from the nasal cavity, depending upon the physicochemical properties of the drug and physiological properties of the human nose.

Objective: The well-tolerated and non-invasive nasal drug delivery when combined with the nanotechnology-based novel formulations and carriers, opens the way for the effective systemic and brain targeting delivery of various therapeutic agents. To accomplish competent drug delivery, it is imperative to recognize the interactions among the nanomaterials and the nasal biological environment, targeting cell-surface receptors, drug release, multiple drug administration, stability of therapeutic agents and molecular mechanisms of cell signaling involved in patho-biology of the disease under consideration.

Methods: Quite a few systems have been successfully formulated using nanomaterials for intranasal (IN) delivery. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs), chitosan, polylactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA) and PLGA-based nanosystems have also been studied in vitro and in vivo for the delivery of several therapeutic agents which shown promising concentrations in the brain after nasal administration.

Results and conclusion: The use of nanomaterials including peptide-based nanotubes and nanogels (NGs) for vaccine delivery via nasal route is a new approach to control the disease progression. In this review, the recent developments in nanotechnology utilized for nasal drug delivery have been discussed.

Abstract

The field of nanotechnology may hold the promise of significant improvements in the health and well being of patients, as well as in manufacturing technologies. The knowledge of this impact of nanomaterials on public health is limited so far. This paper briefly reviews the unique size-controlled properties of nanomaterials, their disposition in the body after inhalation, and the factors influencing the fate of inhaled nanomaterials. The physiology of the lung makes it an ideal target organ for non-invasive local and systemic drug delivery, especially for protein and poorly water-soluble drugs that have low oral bioavailability via oral administration. The potential application of pulmonary drug delivery of nanoparticles to the lungs, specifically in context of published results reported on nanomaterials in environmental epidemiology and toxicology is reviewed in this paper.


Nanoparticles for nasal vaccination

Advanced Drug Delivery Review. 
2009 Feb 27; doi: 10.1016/j.addr.2008.09.005. Epub 2008 Dec 13.

Abstract

The great interest in mucosal vaccine delivery arises from the fact that mucosal surfaces represent the major site of entry for many pathogens. Among other mucosal sites, nasal delivery is especially attractive for immunization, as the nasal epithelium is characterized by relatively high permeability, low enzymatic activity and by the presence of an important number of immunocompetent cells. In addition to these advantageous characteristics, the nasal route could offer simplified and more cost-effective protocols for vaccination with improved patient compliance. The use of nanocarriers provides a suitable way for the nasal delivery of antigenic molecules. Besides improved protection and facilitated transport of the antigen, nanoparticulate delivery systems could also provide more effective antigen recognition by immune cells. These represent key factors in the optimal processing and presentation of the antigen, and therefore in the subsequent development of a suitable immune response. In this sense, the design of optimized vaccine nanocarriers offers a promising way for nasal mucosal vaccination.

Nanoneurotherapeutics approach intended for direct nose to brain delivery

Shadab Md  1 Gulam Mustafa  2   3 Sanjula Baboota  3 Javed Ali  3 Affiliations Expand

Abstract

Context: Brain disorders remain the world’s leading cause of disability, and account for more hospitalizations and prolonged care than almost all other diseases combined. The majority of drugs, proteins and peptides do not readily permeate into brain due to the presence of the blood-brain barrier (BBB), thus impeding treatment of these conditions.

Objective: Attention has turned to developing novel and effective delivery systems to provide good bioavailability in the brain.

Methods: Intranasal administration is a non-invasive method of drug delivery that may bypass the BBB, allowing therapeutic substances direct access to the brain. However, intranasal administration produces quite low drug concentrations in the brain due limited nasal mucosal permeability and the harsh nasal cavity environment. Pre-clinical studies using encapsulation of drugs in nanoparticulate systems improved the nose to brain targeting and bioavailability in brain. However, the toxic effects of nanoparticles on brain function are unknown.

Result and conclusion: This review highlights the understanding of several brain diseases and the important pathophysiological mechanisms involved. The review discusses the role of nanotherapeutics in treating brain disorders via nose to brain delivery, the mechanisms of drug absorption across nasal mucosa to the brain, strategies to overcome the blood brain barrier, nanoformulation strategies for enhanced brain targeting via nasal route and neurotoxicity issues of nanoparticles.

Nanoemulsion-based intranasal drug delivery system of saquinavir mesylate for brain targeting

Hitendra S Mahajan  1 Milind S MahajanPankaj P NerkarAnshuman Agrawal Affiliations Expand

Abstract

The central nervous system (CNS) is an immunological privileged sanctuary site-providing reservoir for HIV-1 virus. Current anti-HIV drugs, although effective in reducing plasma viral levels, cannot eradicate the virus completely from the body. The low permeability of anti-HIV drugs across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) leads to insufficient delivery. Therefore, developing a novel approaches enhancing the CNS delivery of anti-HIV drugs are required for the treatment of neuro-AIDS. The aim of this study was to develop intranasal nanoemulsion (NE) for enhanced bioavailability and CNS targeting of saquinavir mesylate (SQVM). SQVM is a protease inhibitor which is a poorly soluble drug widely used as antiretroviral drug, with oral bioavailability is about 4%. The spontaneous emulsification method was used to prepare drug-loaded o/w nanoemulsion, which was characterized by droplet size, zeta potential, pH, drug content. Moreover, ex-vivo permeation studies were performed using sheep nasal mucosa. The optimized NE showed a significant increase in drug permeation rate compared to the plain drug suspension (PDS). Cilia toxicity study on sheep nasal mucosa showed no significant adverse effect of SQVM-loaded NE. Results of in vivo biodistribution studies show higher drug concentration in brain after intranasal administration of NE than intravenous delivered PDS. The higher percentage of drug targeting efficiency (% DTE) and nose-to-brain drug direct transport percentage (% DTP) for optimized NE indicated effective CNS targeting of SQVM via intranasal route. Gamma scintigraphy imaging of the rat brain conclusively demonstrated transport of drug in the CNS at larger extent after intranasal administration as NE.

Abstract

Over the past few years, nasal drug delivery has attracted more and more attentions, and been recognized as the most promising alternative route for the systemic medication of drugs limited to intravenous administration. Many experiments in animal models have shown that nanoscale carriers have the ability to enhance the nasal delivery of peptide/protein drugs and vaccines compared to the conventional drug solution formulations. However, the rapid mucociliary clearance of the drug-loaded nanoparticles can cause a reduction in bioavailability percentage after intranasal administration. Thus, research efforts have considerably been directed towards the development of hydrogel nanosystems which have mucoadhesive properties in order to maximize the residence time, and hence increase the period of contact with the nasal mucosa and enhance the drug absorption. It is most certain that the high viscosity of hydrogel-based nanosystems can efficiently offer this mucoadhesive property. This update review discusses the possible benefits of using hydrogel polymer-based nanoparticles and hydrogel nanocomposites for drug/vaccine delivery through the intranasal administration.

So you can give someone Rona just by sneazing less than six feet away. but they can’t test for it unless they stab your brains out with their swabs, right? We launched this discussion a few months ago, but it hardly caught any attention being heavily censored by fact-fakers and in competition with Gates and Fauci’s 24/7 media circus. Luckily, recent mainstream news have have just revived the topic, and this is essential knowledge for our health and even survival.

A Covid-19 Nasal Swab Test Punctured Woman’s Brain Lining and Leaked Brain Fluid From Her Nose. What does that mean?

ACovid-19 nasal swab test punctured a US woman’s brain lining, causing fluid to leak from her nose and putting her at risk of life-threatening infection, doctors reported in a medical journal Thursday.

The patient, who is in her 40s, had an undiagnosed rare condition and the test she received may have been carried out improperly, a sequence of improbable events that means the risk from nasal tests remains very low.

But her case showed health care professionals should take care to follow testing protocols closely, Jarrett Walsh, senior author of the paper that appeared in JAMA Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgery, told AFP.

From our favorite fact-fakers USA Today

People who’ve had extensive sinus or skull base surgery should consider requesting oral testing if available, he added.

“It underscores the necessity of adequate training of those performing the test and the need for vigilance after the test has been performed,” added ear, nose and throat specialist Dennis Kraus of Lenox Hill Hospital in New York, who wasn’t involved in the paper.

Walsh, who practices at the University of Iowa Hospital, said the woman had gone for a nasal test ahead of an elective hernia surgery, and afterward noticed clear fluid coming out of one side of her nose.

She subsequently developed headache, vomiting, neck stiffness, and aversion to light, and was transferred to Walsh’s care.

“She had been swabbed previously for another procedure, same side, no problems at all. She feels like maybe the second swab was not using the best technique, and that the entry was a little bit high,” he said.

In fact, the woman had been treated years earlier for intracranial hypertension — meaning that the pressure from cerebrospinal fluid that protects and nourishes the brain was too high.

Doctors at the time used a shunt to drain some of the fluid and the condition resolved.

But it caused her to develop what’s called an encephalocele, or a defect at the base of the skull which made the brain’s lining protrude into the nose where it was susceptible to rupture.

This went unnoticed until old scans were reviewed by her new doctors, who carried out surgery to repair the defect in July.

She has since fully recovered.

Walsh said he believes the symptoms she developed were a result of irritation to the lining of the brain.

If the problem hadn’t been treated, she could have developed a potentially life-threatening brain infection from bacteria that traveled up the nose.

Or, air could have entered the skull and placed excess pressure on the brain.

Most testing protocols call for clinicians to follow the path of the floor of the nose, which lies above the roof of the mouth, rather than pointing the swab up — or if they point it up, to do so with great care.

Walsh said that though this was likely a very rare occurrence, it was a reminder of the need for high-quality training, given that hundreds of millions more tests will be performed before the pandemic is over.

Let’s read this again:

update: Another report of a woman leaking spinal fluid after a covid test. Experts say it’s rare, but they aren’t surprised it happened.


From Fox29 TV, SAN ANTONIO (WOAI/KABB February 27th 2021)

A San Antonio woman is still in shock after she says a Covid nasal swab test went horribly wrong.

“It hurt, it was an immediate instant migraine,” says Chari Timm. “I’ve never had a migraine ever in my life.”Volume 90%Chari Timm says the swab was inserted in her nose and she instantly felt pain.

Chari was in need of a heart diagnostic test and protocol states she had to test negative for Covid before they could run any tests. She says the swab was inserted in her nose and she instantly felt pain.

“It started from the back of my head and just extend it to the front of my head and my entire brain was an extreme pain,” she says. “Instantly fluid just was leaking out of my nose.”

Chari was leaking spinal fluid.

A neurologist from Methodist and an ear, nose and throat doctor diagnosed her with pneumocephalus days later.

Pneumocephalus is when there has been a rupture in the dural membrane, or the lining that’s around the brain, which allows air to enter the space that’s normally occupied by the head.

Experts say it’s rare, but they aren’t surprised it happened.

“Patients are asked to tilt their head back and the trajectory is more parallel to the nostril, the bridge of the nose and that’s what can bring the that swab further up and put you in a range of potentially having that Covid swab then rupture the dural membranes,” says ENT specialist Spencer Payne.

Fortunately, there is a procedure to fix the hole, that would be a laparoscopy.

While it’s unlikely it’ll happen to you , if you feel uncomfortable when getting swabbed, speak up.

“It’s important that swab be directed as straight back as possible,” says Payne. “Patients should be empowered to understand that anatomy and direct their care if they think their swab is going in the wrong direction.”

If the brain can protrude into the nose, the swab certainly can breach the blood brain barrier, even if only indirectly.

Check the highlighted area in the figure above, the circled area is the access gate. That’s not soft tissue, but it’s far from a really resistent and insensitive one. You don’t need to go through it to cause harm to the brain, more or less directly.


“There are three layers of protection in the nose. There’s the mucosal lining which covers the inside of the nose. There’s the olfactory epithelium (involved in sense of smell). The inside, the dura mater, which means ‘tough mother,’ is a tough lining of skin around the brain. It’s hard to penetrate through (it) without something sharp,” said Dr. Shawn Nasseri, an ear, nose and throat surgeon in Los Angeles, in an interview with USA TODAY. (“Resurch” done on the toilet bowl).

Protrusion is one of their own typical straw-men, not the point they’re claiming to invalidate. It’s never been about protrusion. And “hard” doesn’t mean impossible. Same as in almost every fact-checker blog post (that’s all they are), they don’t even argue what they calim they do, but own fabrications.

 “Increases in blood-brain barrier permeability occur and can be maintained with increasing inflammatory and oxidative and nitrosative stress being the initial drivers”, according to top Australian and Canadian researchers. All you need to do is to introduce the right agents in the right area,

Bottom line: the Covid-19 nasal test swabs, which are not used nasally at all, may not be able to easily protrude all the way to the brain blood barrier directly, but they certainly have the potential to get there or close enough, hurt and cause inflamations that can further leade to the “leaky brain” disease.

What Is the “Leaky Brain” and how it affects health

We took advice on this from Peter Smith, who specialises in treating and coaching people how to live well with mental health problems, digestive health problems/IBS, sleep problems and type II diabetes using natural therapies.
He used these techniques to overcome and live well with his own bipolar disorder, IBS, he also briefly had and reversed type II diabetes. You can read about his mental health recovery story  here.

SOURCE

This is what we found out from his research:

The blood-brain barrier is a specialist membrane that surrounds the brain, it’s supposed to prevent toxins, bacteria and foreign proteins such as gluten from entering the brain. When the blood-brain barrier allows undesirable substances to enter the brain it can trigger inflammation that can damage key structures in the brain involved in depression, bipolar and other mental health problems; it can also cause a ‘foggy’ brain. In this section I’ll tell you how you can test the health of your blood-brain barrier and if it leaky how to fix it.

How to test the integrity of your blood-brain barrier

You can perform a basic test on your blood-brain barrier yourself at home, you can buy the neurotransmitter GABA as a supplement and take 1000 mg in the evening when you’re not going to go out or drive a car. When you take a GABA supplement and it is absorbed from the digestive system into the systemic blood it should not be able to get into across the blood-brain barrier and enter the brain; this is because the GABA molecule is very slightly too large to pass through a healthy blood-brain barrier.

When the blood-brain barrier (BBB) is excessively permeable or leaky however GABA from supplements can cross the BBB and will cause a rapid rise in GABA levels in the brain. Most people would experience this as a noticeable feeling of relaxation, sedation and a reduction in feelings of anxiety however paradoxically some people actually experience a temporary increase in anxiety or even a feeling of panic, this can be because their GABA synapses and pathways are already at the point of exhaustion and even a little bit of increased stimulation quickly leads to a temporary exhaustion and depletion. If you experience this paradoxical reaction because your GABA pathways are at the point of exhaustion you may initially respond badly to treatments aimed at increasing GABA activity in the brain, the solution is to aggressively reduce neuro-inflammation (inflammation in the brain) by treating any and every source of inflammation, see how to reduce neuro-information.

In terms of the GABA challenge test the important point is if feel any of the above effects it implies you have a leaky brain and you should fix it.

If you pass the test i.e. don’t feel anything on 1000 mg I would actually repeat the test the following night with 1500 mg just to be doubly sure. Do not engage in anything that you wouldn’t do if you were under the influence of alcohol or sleeping pills like drive a car during the test, ideally do the test in the evening just in case it produces a strong relaxation effect so that you have ample time to sleep it off overnight.

If you fail the GABA challenge test above you should not keep taking GABA because of the risk that repeatedly flooding the brain with GABA could desensitise your GABA synapses, the balanced way to increase GABA is to take substances like ashwagandha and theanine that readily pass the blood-brain barrier and stimulate the brain to make its own GABA and lithium orotate and passionflower that increase GABA sensitivity by increasing receptor sites within GABA synapses. See GABA Deficient Anxiety

A personal anecdote is I used to occasionally take GABA to sedate my brain counteract bipolar hypo-mania long before I knew that GABA should not be able to cross the BBB and that it could be used as a test the health of the blood-brain barrier. I found that GABA did work for me but was unpredictable, sometimes producing strong sedation and other times no noticeable effects at all. I now understand that this means the health of my blood-brain barrier was borderline and when the level of inflammation in my body was elevated my blood-brain barrier was leaky enough to allow GABA from supplements to enter my brain and other times my blood-brain barrier worked should; today GABA has no effect on me.

The importance of the blood-brain barrier in mental health

The blood-brain barrier is a protective membrane that separates the brain from the rest of the blood in the body, its job is to prevent unwanted substances from entering the brain. When healthy the blood-brain barrier blocks everything except nano-sized particles and a few desirable larger molecules are specifically allowed to pass through, even antibodies made by our own immune system are too big to pass through the blood-brain barrier, so the brain has its own separate immune system; furthermore the blood-brain barrier can make it difficult to administer medicines both pharmaceutical and natural to the brain, in my line of work I always have to ask the question does this medicinal substance cross the blood-brain barrier.

By and large the blood-brain barrier prevents viruses and bacteria from entering the brain, this is why infections in the brain are actually quite rare; some notable exceptions to this are the bacteria that cause meningitis, syphilis and Borrelia that causes Lyme disease, these smart pathogens release inflammatory chemicals called cytokines that cause inflammation and increased permeability in the blood-brain barrier to gain access to the brain.

The blood-brain barrier also prevents many toxins and pollutants from entering the brain it does not however do a good job of preventing toxic metals such as mercury[i], lead or cadmium from entering the brain.

Mercury is a highly penetrating substance, a dentist that specialises in safe amalgam filling removal once told me that the mercury vapours released when you drill an amalgam filling can penetrate a man-made rubber dam during the drilling process, inhaled and absorbed, which led to the development of new safer extraction techniques.

Besides obvious things such as bacteria and viruses the blood-brain barrier should keep toxins, pollutants and large half-digested food molecules such as gluten from wheat out of the brain. Our digestive system attempts to break down large protein molecules into individual amino acids (the building blocks of proteins), we then absorb the amino acids and build up into human shaped proteins but the process of breaking down foreign proteins into amino acids is never hundred percent complete or successful resulting in half-digestive protein molecules and strings of amino acids. Ideally the walls of our digestive tract should not allow these half digestive protein molecules to enter the bloodstream but when the walls of the digestive tract are excessively permeable then half-digested proteins pass through into the blood, this is sometimes called leaky gut syndrome. If the blood-brain barrier is also leaky then the half-digested proteins can make it all the way from digestive system into the brain and trigger the brains immune system and inflammatory response. Generally treating a leaky blood-brain barrier should go hand-in-hand with treating a leaky gut.

The role of hidden neuro-inflammation in mental health

The people mcking your “Google Univeristy diploma”. I’ve seen vlogs by 17y olds that look and sound better than Factcheck.org

There’s a growing understanding that mental health problems including depression, bipolar syndrome, OCD and anxiety are caused by diminished function in specific parts of the brain that control mood and mental health. In the affected areas there is literally a loss of synaptic connections and inflammation is thought to be the primary factor that causes this; a loss of serotonin carrying synapses in the limbic system that controls our mood for example result in depression. This is the new BDNF hypothesis of what causes mental health problems.

It can be very upsetting to hear that you may have a loss of synapses in your brain, so let me immediately reassure you that the brain is constantly remodelling itself losing and growing new connections this is called neuroplasticity and it can be stimulated and increased so you can regrow and repair the function in the affected parts of your brain. To learn how to do that see: How to regenerate your broken brain
One of the key goals to achieve to increase neuroplasticity and overcome a mental health problem is to eliminate neuro-inflammation.

A leaky blood-brain barrier is not the only thing that can cause neuro-inflammation, other things that can independently cause neuro- inflammation include a pro-inflammatory diet, elevated cortisol production from overactive stress responses (a common finding in people with mental health problems), elevated blood sugar/insulin levels, drug and alcohol use although the latter also weakens the blood-brain barrier causing it to become leaky. Furthermore when a leaky blood-brain barrier is combined with leaky gut syndrome and an unhealthy bowel flora it increases the ability of the latter to cause neuro-inflammation.

In my practice a big part of my treatments is to eliminate neuro-inflammation by working on everything just mentioned.

Understanding inflammation

It’s common to think of inflammation is a bad thing but a short appropriate burst of inflammation is part of a healthy immune response, inflammation helps the affected body part to fight infection, clear toxins and repair itself.

Inflammation can exist in an extreme form with tell-tale signs including swelling, fever, pain and clinical markers such as elevated CRP in the blood; in the brain extreme inflammation is extremely dangerous and should be treated immediately with aggressive anti-inflammatory drug therapy such as steroids.

Alternatively inflammation can exist in a low-level in the background without producing any obvious signs this can be referred to as hidden inflammation; one of the big problems with low-level background inflammation is that it hidden and so may persist unnoticed for years chipping away at the health of your brain. When hidden inflammation persists over a long period of time it can damage key parts of the brain that control mood and cause at least contributes to mental health problems. Hidden inflammation can also be a central component of degenerative diseases including dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Two important things to note about the brains immune/inflammatory response are firstly because the brain is so important it’s defensive immune/inflammatory responses are very easily provoked and secondly once provoked they remain active for a very long time. The combination of features is why a leaky blood-brain barrier can be so detrimental, for example just a small seemingly benign provocation from the entry of gluten into the brain can provoke neuro-inflammation that could last for days; gluten is notorious for being able to provoke a particularly aggressive immune/inflammatory response. I recently treated a patient who identified wheat is a clear trigger for her bipolar mania.

When we have a leaky blood-brain barrier and leaky gut syndrome the immune/inflammatory response may switched on literally every time we eat from half-digested foreign proteins entering the brain; the result would be continuous persistent neuro-inflammation wreaking havoc on delicate brain structures.

There’s also growing evidence that the toxins produced by an unhealthy bacterial colony in our intestines can be a significant contribution to neuro-inflammation if they are allowed to enter the brain, there are often so many supplements to take when you’re using natural therapies to improve a mental health condition that is easy to overlook the health of the bowel flora but it can have a significant effect and it’s worth taking probiotic supplements.

A personal anecdote is that for many years I used to eat wheat once a week, if I ate it twice a week I would get a pressure headache at the back of my head feel very slightly depressed and very grumpy; at that time I didn’t understand the significance of this and for over a decade enjoyed my one sandwich a week. I now understand that that one serving of wheat provoked inflammation in my brain that lasted several days and if I had a second serving of wheat before the inflammation from the previous serving had completely subsided the inflammatory effects were combined and compounded on top of each other to produced sufficient neuro-inflammation to give me a headache and psychological symptoms. Looking back I regret provoking low-grade hidden inflammation in my brain for several days each week. Today I avoid wheat and use rye/spelt bread made with sourdough rather than modern yeast which as far as I can tell does not produce any neuro-inflammation, I follow an anti-inflammatory diet and I have improved the health of both my digestive tract and blood-brain barrier.

What makes the blood-brain barrier become leaky?

The main thing that makes the blood-brain barrier become too permeable or leaky is inflammation in the blood-brain barrier itself. Just to be clear inflammation in the blood-brain barrier causes the blood-brain barrier to become too permeable or leaky which then allows undesirable substances to enter the brain which then triggers the brains defensive immune/inflammatory response and this results in increased neuro-inflammation.

The blood-brain barrier is just another part of the body and when there is widespread systemic-inflammation in the body in general it can inflame the blood-brain barrier and therefore from a practical treatment point of view to heal a leaky blood-brain barrier we have to eliminate systemic-inflammation throughout our whole system. Systemic-inflammation can be caused by a poor pro-inflammatory diet, over-active stress responses, pollution, toxins from and friendly bacteria in the intestines, leaky gut syndrome, allergies, autoimmunity, et cetera.

Alcohol and yeast overgrowth (Candida)

Excessive consumption of alcohol specifically weakens the blood-brain barrier because one of the breakdown products of alcohol is acetaldehyde and this specifically damages the blood-brain barrier. Acetaldehyde is also produced from yeast (Candida) overgrowth, the worst thing in the diet to promote the overgrowth of yeast is sugar.
I have a question if anyone can answer this for me: does yeast overgrowth produce acetaldehyde by fermenting sugar in the blood into alcohol and then the alcohol breaks down into acetaldehyde or is the acetaldehyde produced independently of alcohol production and breakdown?

The clinical significance here is that if you have abused alcohol and or you have a yeast/candida overgrowth you should suspect you have a leaky blood-brain barrier and treated just in case.

How to heal a leaky blood-brain barrier

As just mentioned above systemic-inflammation in the body is a primary cause of a leaky blood-brain barrier, the practical implication of this is that the key thing to do to heal a leaky blood-brain barrier is reduce systemic-inflammation.

Two really big things to do to reduce systemic-inflammation are:-

  • Follow the anti-inflammatory diet and
  • Dampen down overactivity in the HPA axis.

 Additional measures to reduce systemic-inflammation and heal the BBB include:-

  • Drink no alcohol for the duration treatment.
  • Eliminate leaky gut syndrome by following the anti-inflammatory diet and if necessary treating and eliminate SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) and intestinal yeast (Candida) overgrowth
  •  Improve the condition of your intestinal microbiota (the bacteria) primarily with a diet containing a large amount of diverse polyphenols and fibre, if necessary thoroughly cleanse the bowels first then repopulate with friendly bacteria.
  • Consume copious amounts of chicken stock, this promote regeneration of both the blood-brain barrier and the intestinal wall. See How to Make a Healing Chicken Stock
  • Remove amalgam fillings from your teeth and detoxify heavy metals
  • Eat organic foods because they contain less pesticide residues.
  • Improve the quality of your sleep, because sleep deprivation particularly inadequate the rapid eye movement sleep that occurs in the second half of the night when we dream and learn new memories has been shown to degrade the integrity of the BBB[ii][iii]. For techniques on how to improve your sleep see my book: Sleep Better with Natural Therapies by Peter Smith available from Amazon.
  • Improve your oral hygiene, particularly your gum health with regular flossing and if necessary the use of the new oral pro/friendly bacteria lozenges. Believe it or not oral bacteria can be a significant source of inflammation in the body, if you have poor gum health consult with an oral hygienist before embarking upon the use of dental floss to avoid initially releasing dangerous bacteria into your bloodstream.

Supplements to heal a leaky blood-brain barrier

Only a few supplements are known to specifically improve the health of the BBB they include acetyl-L-carnitine, a specific form of B5 called pantethine and melatonin.

Acetyl-L-carnitine boosts the production of antioxidant enzymes that protect and heal the BBB[iv]. Unfortunately there some studies have suggested that if carnitine is regularly consumed it feeds and builds up a particular bacteria in the intestines and these bacteria produce a chemical from the carnitine that damages our arteries; the suggestion is that the inherently high level of carnitine found in meat may actually be the mechanism whereby meat consumption increases the risk of heart disease. The evidence that this is the case still limited furthermore in the animal studies the form of carnitine look at was specifically L carnitine as opposed to acetyl-L-carnitine which can help heal the BBB, nevertheless I don’t recommend consuming something that could cause arterial damage and contribute to heart disease which is the leading cause of death in developed countries especially at high doses. I hope that further studies will show that acetyl-L-carnitine is not harmful to arterial health because carnitine is useful for depression, cellular energy, weight loss and healing the BBB.

Pantethine boosts the production of the key enzyme that clears acetaldehyde from the brain and therapeutic use of pantethine has been shown to strengthen the BBB so significantly it was able to prevent malaria from entering the brain (you can easily find references to this online).

Therapeutic doses start at 1000 mg twice a day with meals.

Melatonin besides being a potent free radical scavenger and inherently anti-inflammatory, melatonin has been shown to protect the integrity of the BBB, however the dosage used in the animal studies was enormous way beyond any human would supplement [v]. I’ve accumulated quite a lot of both personal and professional experience with the use of melatonin supplements, I have observed that at high doses above 2-3 mg many people experience a significant increase in the intensity their dreams even to disturbing levels and by personal experimentation one can work out a dosage that enhances and prolongs the rapid eye movement dreaming sleep phase.

Resveratrol is an antioxidant/polyphenols naturally occurring in foods such as red grapes, red wine and raspberries that has numerous health benefits especially the health of the brain, it has also appears to restore the integrity of the BBB and reduce neuro inflammation[vi].

High strength resveratrol is expensive, a good value for money resveratrol containing product I take myself and regularly prescribed Doctor’s Best French Red Wine Grape Extract 2 to 4 capsules a day, the same company also make quite good value resveratrol, if you are not limited by the expense Life Extension make very high quality resveratrol supplements; you can find all these products on iherb.com

Remember alcohol specifically weakens the blood-brain barrier so abstain from alcohol while you are treating a leaky BBB.

In addition to the above remedies I would recommend simultaneously taking high doses of antioxidants supplements that reduce systemic-inflammation to help create the conditions in the body conducive to repairing the blood-brain barrier.

My recommended combination:-
Rutin Now Foods one capsule twice a day
Ascorbyl palmitate 1000 mg twice a day
Curcumin plus piperine (there are lots of curcumin products available but only very few deliver significant levels of curcumin to the brain) I recommend Super Bio Curcumin from Life Extension with a separate piperine.
Vitamin E (gamma E) 400 IUs twice a day
Alpha lipoic acid 150 to 600 mg twice a day
NAC cysteine 1200 mg once or twice a day.

Leaks in Brain May Contribute to Dementia

Study finds blood vessels in older adults break down, age-related blood vessel leaks in the brain may contribute to the development of Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia, according to a 2015 study.

The findings suggest it may be possible to use brain scans to detect such leaks and repair them in order to prevent damage that can lead to dementia, the University of Southern California researchers said.

The investigators analyzed contrast-enhanced brain images from 64 people of various ages and found that the brain‘s protective blood barrier becomes leaky with age. This leakage begins in the hippocampus, an important learning and memory center damaged by Alzheimer’s disease.

“This is a significant step in understanding how the vascular system affects the health of our brains,” said lead investigator Dr. Berislav Zlokovic, director of the Zilkha Neurogenetic Institute at the university’s Keck School of Medicine.

“To prevent dementias including Alzheimer’s, we may need to come up with ways to reseal the blood-brain barrier and prevent the brain from being flooded with toxic chemicals in the blood,” Zlokovic added in a university news release.

The study was published Jan. 21 in the journal Neuron.

Post-death examinations of Alzheimer’s patients’ brains reveal damage to the blood-brain barrier. However, why and when this damage occurs is unclear, the researchers noted.

About 5.2 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease, the most common type of dementia. By 2050, about 16 million Americans over age 65 will have dementia, according to the Alzheimer’s Association.
