Will America Be Hit by the Chinese Wuhan Flu Just Like Italy?
The mainstream media seems incredibly determined to convince us all that the Chinese Wuhan Flu (from China) is going to devastate America just like it has Italy. If that’s true, why aren’t other countries in Europe already getting hammered like Italy? For that matter, why is Italy getting hammered like Italy?
Don’t get me wrong: I feel terrible for the Italians on the one hand. It’s awful that so many of their geriatric over-80 citizens are dying from the China-China-China Flu (from China). But what is it about northern Italy in particular that has so many people catching this bug and dying from it? We have a couple of possible answers now.
First, northern Italy has tons of legal and illegal Chinese immigrants. Over the past two decades, the textile and leather shops in northern Italy have all been bought out by the communist Chinese. Because globalism is awesome for everyone or something.
Rather than continuing to employ Italians in those now-Chinese-owned shops and factories, Italy’s crummy globalist leaders (who have since been thrown out of office) cut a deal with the Chi-Coms: Just bring in your own workers to make these “Italian” goods.
True story. More than 100,000 workers in northern Italy were replaced by foreign nationals directly from China. Some have legal work visas, but the Chinese mafia also purchased factories in Italy, and they don’t worry so much about the visas. The number of illegal alien Chinese workers in northern Italy is estimated to be in the tens of thousands.
To help the Chinese out even further, the Italian government started allowing direct daily flights between Tuscany and a city in China. Any guesses as to which city in China? Yep… Wuhan.
So, while China was covering up the Chinese China-Flu from the world back in November or December, those direct daily flights from Wuhan were continuing right up until last week. The next time someone feels like criticizing President Trump over his travel ban against China, they should take a look at all the Italians singing to each other from their balconies right now.
Another reason Italy is getting so hard has to do with age. Italy has the oldest per capita population in all of Europe. Far older than the U.S. population per capita. Italy actually has the second oldest per capita in the entire world, only Japan’s population per capita is older. The average age of a person who dies from coronavirus in Italy is 81years old.
Fourth, Italy’s population has a high percentage of smokers. Smokers are classified as having an underlying health condition, which we have heard over and over is a main reason why people die from this virus versus recover from it.
Italy has a high percentage of older people and people with underlying health conditions. That’s part of the reason why northern Italy is getting hit so hard. The other reason may be genetic. It’s a well-established fact that vitamin C helps you fight off illness as an antioxidant, right?
When scientists began deeper studies of genetics in the early 2000s, they started discovering all kinds of interesting genetic differences in humans. Race is not, in fact, a social construct and it’s not just skin-deep as all the globalists want us to believe. One of the major discoveries in the early 2000s was that people of different genetic backgrounds respond to vitamin C differently.
Humans can have one of three types of haptoglobin (platelets) in our blood: H 1-1, H 2-1 and H 2-2. (I know, boring science stuff, but bear with me.) Depending on the type of haptoglobin that you have genetically, your body may not retain as much vitamin C naturally, even if you get plenty of it in your diet. People with H 1-1 haptoglobin can eat fewer fruits and vegetables and still retain a lot of vitamin C. In the inverse, if you carry the H 2-2 haptoglobin, you are three times more likely to be vitamin C-deficient.
Among Chinese people, the population breakdown is: 10% H 1-1, 33.6% H 2-1 and 56.4% H 2-2. More than half of the Chinese struggle to retain vitamin C in their systems because of that H 2-2 haptoglobin. I’m not saying this to point and laugh at anyone of Asian ancestry. I’m saying it because if you are of Asian ancestry, you probably need to take more vitamin C more frequently than doctors have been telling you. You can take my word for it, or you can bore yourself to sleep by reading about it here.
Oh, and among Europeans, the lowest genetic concentration of the H 1-1 haptoglobins… is among northern Italians. H 1-1 frequency in northern Italy is at about 36% of the population, which is the lowest in all of Europe. H 1-1 is also extremely low in the Iranian population. Some food for thought as you’re waiting in line to try to get a pack of toilet paper this week.
