Can anyone of you smart science people please find a cure for hsv 2 and 1? I got genital herpes after my promiscious past. Tests show that i have hsv1 and hsv2. Bodycount 76..

Please find a cure i want to settle down now with a good man but sadly herpes have stigma

I get cold sores and I've never even hold someones hand. Now I'm also going to get Alzheimers.
note that genital herpes can come from hsv-1 or 2 now, hsv-1 is considered not a big deal.

Still remember a room mate in college coming home in panick that he tested positive, than i was like broh if you killed at least 6 people in the club over the past two years you can expect hsv-1, he was more relieved

i didnt mention the alzheimers to him though
Infections are different than viruses. And there's already a crisis with antibiotics as we speak. As for STDs, there's already super gonorrhea floating out there, but of course, the average non degenerate doesn't need to worry about it.

Do you think it's acceptable for a gang of climate change activist bureaucrats to dictate what children get to eat if it's for the reduction of of carbon emissions, even if it may prevent children from having a normal diet and possibly causing them to go frail from lack of nutrition?

what are you on about, no one is going to read any of these jpgs and walls of text kek
One of my friends graduated from Grantham University, which before being purchased by the University of Arkansas System, was an for-profit, online only, private school. The curriculum looked somewhat patterned on what you'd see to a low tier state school but when I looked at the course materials, it was almost middle school level. But he was proud of being a college graduate and the military paid all the costs so I just smiled and said it's great he graduated. He ended up hating software development and moved into management.

So /sci/, do you actually want to get smarter and increase cognition?

Cool, so drop all the "what should I study to be smarter" nonsense. Reading books and accruing information won't do a single thing for you.

What you need to increase is fluid intelligence, this will determine how effective and innovative you are in applying acquired information. Someone with higher fluid intelligence will simply out perform you regardless of how much you know.

Besides, who cares about random factoids and memory recall? Absolutely useless in our day-to-day.

The most effective (by far) scientifically proven method to do this is the dual n back.

On an anecdotal level, after using it for about a month my memory improved immensely, which helped a lot at work.

And I began thinking of novel solutions to problems that I KNOW I wouldn't have thought of before, this was most noticeable at work. It was the "creative" faculty improving I guess. Whatever it was, I noticed it.

Define [eqn] D(x) \Longleftrightarrow x \text{ is a dog} \\ C(x) \Longleftrightarrow x \text{ is a dog} \\ xLy \Longleftrightarrow x \text{ likes } y [/eqn]

Logic is really just symbolic manipulations, language can sometimes be confusing. Intuitively "No dog likes any cat" means "All dogs dislike all cats".
Which can be represented as [math] \forall x \forall y : \left[ D(x) \wedge C(y) \right] \longrightarrow \neg (xLy) [/math] which you can prove is equivalent to [math] \neg \exists x \exists y : D(x) \wedge C(y) \wedge xLy [/math]

If you're still confused then think about the difference between these two statements
"No one can kill anyone" (this proposition is false because there exists at least one person who killed at least one person)
"No one can kill everyone" (this proposition is true because we would all be dead)

Let him who is without altering a few numbers cast the first stone, lmao

>results are more in line with a 5 and i'm not going to repeat that shit again

>fuck, this number looks off, it increases the standard deviation
>probably made some mistake, let me remove it

It could also be that they altered the procedure and didn't report on it or deliberetly manipulated the procedure and results to achieve certain results

There really needs to be a reform to incentivize reproducibility
I bet that the money lost in research paths that lead nowhere is like a magnitude higher that the money required to review the papers

There should be a score based system that gives credibility to the papers based on reproducibility both in quality and quantity, peer review is not enough
And incentivize it with recognition and money funded by public institutions
Contrarian theories to the establishment should also be rewarded

It's not even a difficult problem, that isn't the limiting factor

about the gut reservoir

SARS-CoV-2 Shedding from Asymptomatic Patients: Contribution of Potential Extrapulmonary Tissue Reservoirs
Kalkeri et al
In a minority of patients, extrapulmonary organs (central nervous system, eyes, heart, and gut) are affected, with detection of viral RNA in bodily secretions (stool, tears, and saliva). Infection of such extrapulmonary organs may serve as a reservoir

Gut as viral reservoir: lessons from gut viromes, HIV and COVID-19
Neurath et al
Interestingly, there is a high rate of positive PCR findings in stool even weeks or months after respiratory samples became negative, indicating persistence of mucosal SARS-CoV-2 mRNA in patients with COVID-19.58 This could be due to infection of intestinal epithelial cells, as SARS-CoV-2 could infect and productively replicate in human intestinal tissues ex vivo with subsequent release of infectious virus particles, suggesting that the GI tract serves as a potential route of virus dissemination within an infected host.59 Consistently, a recent study showed that SARS-CoV-2 nucleoprotein (N) is present in intestinal epithelial cells of approximately 35% of patients with COVID-19 even several weeks or months after initial diagnosis, indicating antigen persistence in the intestine after resolution of clinical illness

SARS CoV-2 detected in neonatal stool remote from maternal COVID-19 during pregnancy
Jin et al
These findings suggest in utero transmission of SARS-CoV-2 and possible persistent intestinal viral reservoirs in the newborns.
I wasn't suggesting that it's not possible, I just don't believe it's happening in 100% of people. SARS-CoV-2 is very capable of infecting the intestines if it gets through the stomach, which will likely result in a severe intestinal illness. This clearly happens in some patients, but not all.

Here's one of the sources from your second link:

>Between Jan 16 and March 15, 2020, we enrolled 98 patients. Both respiratory and faecal samples were collected from 74 (76%) patients. Faecal samples from 33 (45%) of 74 patients were negative for SARS CoV-2 RNA, while their respiratory swabs remained positive for a mean of 15·4 days (SD 6·7) from first symptom onset. Of the 41 (55%) of 74 patients with faecal samples that were positive for SARS-CoV-2 RNA, respiratory samples remained positive for SARS-CoV-2 RNA for a mean of 16·7 days (SD 6·7) and faecal samples remained positive for a mean of 27·9 days (10·7) after first symptom onset (ie, for a mean of 11·2 days [9·2] longer than for respiratory samples). The full disease course of the 41 patients with faecal samples that were positive for SARS-CoV-2 RNA is shown in the figure. Notably, patient 1 had positive faecal samples for 33 days continuously after the respiratory samples became negative, and patient 4 tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 RNA in their faecal sample for 47 days after first symptom onset (appendix pp 4–5).

So my takeaway from that is the virus does reach the intestines (or disseminate through the lungs possibly), you're going to harbor the virus for longer than you otherwise would. I wouldn't say it's a permanent infection, though maybe that's possible. It's also worth noting that the original Wuhan virus, along with Delta, had more of a reputation for causing intestinal illness. It doesn't seem to be that common with the Omicron variants.

2.Fruits are not equal to vegetables, they only better than grains and roots.
3.Oils should be limited to 10-15% of the calories intake, so should be on the top always.
4.Whole grains should be on top, and processed grains, sugar, processed meat, alcohol should not be in the pyramid in first place, are extras but not part of the normal diet.
5.Red meat (beef, lamb-sheep, pork) and milk-yogurt should be along the other meats.
6.Nuts and oily legumes should be on top. Legumes and some seeds should be in the same level as vegetables.

7. The first level should be +3 liters of water daily.
