Purell Coronavirus Treatment Controversy

3/12/2002:  The FDA has warned Purell to stop marketing their products suggesting they are effective against virus.  https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/28/health/purell-fda-ebola-virus.html

That does not mean that the alcohol in Purell will not kill virus, including coronavirus.  The GOJO company, owner of Purell has not made the necessary FDA application supporting the effectiveness against any virus and therefore cannot market it for those uses.   That does not mean that Purell’s alcohol would not work against the coronavirus, they just cannot label it as such under the FDA law.

However, alcohol is an effective hand sanitizer against bacteria and virus.  The only problem is that there is no long lasting anti-microbial effect.

The following is quoted from: https://www.factcheck.org/2020/03/contrary-to-false-posts-sanitizer-helpful-against-coronavirus/

“There is sound scientific basis for the effectiveness of alcohol-based hand-sanitizers for inactivation of commonly transmitted bacteria and viruses, especially lipid-enveloped viruses like coronaviruses,” Benhur Lee, a professor of microbiology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, told us in an email. “Alcohol-based hand-sanitizers DO work against coronaviruses; this is what is universally recommended by hospital infection control to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by SARS0CoV-2. However, alcohol-based hand-sanitizers complement but do not replace proper hand-washing with soap and water.”

Lee also pointed us to a recent Smithsonian Magazine article, citing multiple sources and scientific papers, that discusses the effectiveness of hand sanitizers. That article, citing Lee, noted that “while soap physically dismantles the envelope using brute force, alcohol changes the envelope’s chemical properties, making it less stable and more permeable to the outside world.”

The article continued: “Alcohol also can penetrate deep into the pathogen’s interior, wreaking havoc on proteins throughout the virus. (Importantly, not all viruses come with outer envelopes. Those that don’t, like the viruses that cause HPV and polio, won’t be susceptible to soap, and to some extent alcohol, in the same way.)”

“Experts recommend working the sanitizer fully over both hands until completely dry.”

In addition, it is best to use a sanitizer that has a reagent that coats the skin and has a longer lasting effect.  For instance, Zoono lasts for 24 hours on the human hands.  www.zoonousa.com

CBD; the present state

12/1/2019: CBD has little data supporting anything. The marketing promotions out weigh the supporting evidence.

Take a look at https://www.healio.com/primary-care/pain-management/news/online/%7B0a67a133-952a-4be1-a52a-526c5ecdaed5%7D/guide-emphasizes-facts-not-falsehoods-about-cbd-use.

My first look at a review leaves much to be learned yet.

Signs of the Times

10/29/2019: A sign of the times for America with Biblical references for a nation not aligned with the Lord God of Israel; a.k.a. Jesus.

“Record 67.3 million speak foreign language at home, over 50% in 90 big cities, 59% in Los Angeles.” by Paul Bedard October 29, 2019 10:34 AM Washington Examiner.

Deuteronomy 28:49: The LORD will bring a nation from afar, from the ends of the earth, to swoop down upon you like an eagle–a nation whose language you will not understand,

Jeremiah 15:15: “Behold, I am bringing a nation against you from afar, O house of Israel,” declares the LORD. “It is an enduring nation, it is an ancient nation, A nation whose language you do not know, nor can you understand what they say.

Biblically, this is a curse, not a blessing.

Patent Claims Potential for Facial Acne

10/28/2019: A skin serum topical application for reducing the bacteria that cause acne was discovered during a 2-year 4-phase study at Loma Linda Medical School. Studies on normal human skin showed a serum formulation that would reduce Cutibacterium acnes. The studies were performed with the purpose of creating a surgical disinfectant.

An United States patent was granted on this science: 9,925,152 Antimicrobials and methods of use thereof for wound healing. March 27, 2018.

This was a continuation of the parent application showing that this original formulation may add another metabolite to protocatechuic acid; 2,4,6 trihydroxybenzaldehyde.

Patent claims were granted in that both metabolites act as broad spectrum antibiotics, plus collagen proliferation (i.e. wrinkle treatment) and reduction in skin scar formation.

As such there would be a serum formulation for skin health: www.a-cosmetic.com

Best Knee Arthritis Shoe Ever

8/23/2019: The Ecco Biom Hybrid has the most comfortable sole to reduce the peak axial load while walking. These are intended for golf. The rubber “spikes” produce a cushioning effect better than other brands.

I went away from them for about a year and now returned with much less discomfort for not only golf, but walking and activities of daily living.

Since my knee arthritis is only medial I also use the green 5 degree medial wedged insoles.

In addition, I replace the Ecco insole with my neutral balance cushion insole for the maximal cushioning effect.

CAUTION: Care must be taken not to catch the “spikes” on edge of stairs or other objects.

Paying to Lend Money: Really? Yes, Really!

I do not think this is what the writer of the Bible had in mind when He wrote; “be a lender and not a borrower”. (Deut 15:6)

You may ask, what is this World coming to? The Bible prophesied the answer and we are now seeing the fulfillment in so many ways.
