@"Dangerous; nettles and ticks."
Nettles are indeed risky. The roots contain a protein (UDA), which is superantigen (the immune system is strongly triggered by them as if it was attacked by pathogens) - further stimulation of the immune system doesn't sound like a good idea. I've found some nonsensical research on "mouse models" announcing that UDA could have protective effects against coronaviruses in humans... the animal-abusing psychos will come up with any theory to keep their business going.
BTW, it's curious whether other us (e.g. from wheat) alter the covid infection process in any way. Italy are pasta lovers...
I hope nobody takes seriously my medical aspirations
I remember once in Central America I once woke up at night with a realisation that I had a tick in an exact spot on my body. I obviously couldn't feel anything, because kininase in tick's saliva blocks pain and itching. It was there! A very tiny guy, not a cow-size
edit: yeah, lectins attach themselves to coronaviruses: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10 ... 10.4.2.291
But where does the other end go? Straight to the cell as they normally do to transport sugars - giving the virus a ride to the cell surface?
Just because they form a sort of an immune system for plants, it doesn't mean they will protect us - well, certainly not no-vegans.
I have no idea what I'm talking about, but I know that I sound very smart. I 'm thinking about starting a Twitter account...
