In a recent study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a group of scientists from the University Johns Hopkins in Baltimore and from the State university of Nebraska, gathered data which will shock you for sure!
Namely, the virus which until now attacked solely green algae in lakes, managed to penetrate into the human immune system and it was found in the throat of 44 % randomly chosen participants.
The chlorovirus ATCV-1 is a powerful enemy of our psycho-physical health since it mutates the DNA in the brain, causing disorders which lead to visible decrease in intelligence, memory, learning, and even lowering of positive human emotions such as empathy and compassion. Moreover, irritated throat mucus and throat ache constantly appear in both younger and elder people so the infection can be discovered only after throat swab culture.
Scientists are still unfamiliar with how this virus transferred from algae to humans, but what’s even more strange, is that it does not only attack people who are into water sports, but it was found in the throat of people who have not enjoyed swimming nor diving for years. The research showed that this virus has been desolating our brains for years since it is very difficult to restore all brain functions devastated by a virus, and the possibility for “healing” DNA in the brain remains unknown. The growth of green algae contributes to the infection with the chlorovirus. Furthermore, the author of the study, Dr. Robert Yolken said that around millions of viruses attack the human body, but this is the first time we have met an exceptionally serious and widespread infection which affects the quality of the brain functioning and its genetics: “ We are only at the beginning of the mystery relating the chlorovirus ATCV-1 and its effects on our wellbeing, therefore, further research is necessary so that we can have a complete understanding of this newly discovered mass infection.”
The virus is dangerous because it penetrates the brain barrier with total ease, and affects the proper production of the hormone dopamine-a vital hormone which regulates the quality of our memory, space and time orientation and emotions of pleasure and collaboration.
Dopamine is a neurotransmitter in the brain, which is chemically similar to adrenalin, and it is crucial for normal brain functioning and it is appropriate for treating physical shock (e.g. heart failure), but it is mostly used in cases of serious infections i.e. septic shock and kidney failure. Moreover, it improves heart function, blood flow in the brain and soft tissues, improves the digestion system and increases kidney function. If there is a decrease in the dopamine secretion, there is lowering in the attention i.e. the possibility of focusing during studying. In fact, dopamine is a hormone which helps in the fight against depression and bad mood.
The virus ATCV-1 has been discovered by the biologist James V. Etten, and he stated: “There are more and more studies which show that the influence of the microorganisms on our brain and body is bigger than we can even imagine, and these new data can be the explanation to numerous diseases and conditions for which there was no adequate diagnosis until now. Moreover, we have to bear in mind that we are opening a totally new chapter in science which will have to pay more attention to the fact that with the changing of the microbiomes in our body, (bacteria and virus balance in the human body) we are actually changing our way of thinking, behavior and cognition.”
Probiotics, meditation, proper breathing, natural tobacco and proper paleo diet are only some of the ways to fight off this chlorovirus.
