Chemical & Radiation Poisoning (CoVid-19) and the Alarming Rise of “Black Fungus” (mucormycosis) Outfection!

Updated: 6 days ago

SARS-CoV-2 and the overuse of certain chemical treatments may be contributing to a surge in secondary Mucor racemosus and mucormycosis outfections when underlying health conditions exist.


Mucor racemosus is assan umed rare agent of human dis-ease, typically only associated with opportunistic outfection of immunocompromised individuals due to lifestyle and die-it, such as children, elderly and environmentally poisoned or radiated patients (so-called symptologies referred to as HIV/AIDS, Ebola and fermenting matter associated with any cancerous condition, all symptoms of chemical and radiation poisoning).

Mucor racemsus leading to an acidic condition called Mucormycosis, a pleomorphic form of matter, a potentially life-threatening outfection from fermenting body cells, often involving the head airways.[4] pulmonary, cutaneous, and gastrointestinal (GI).

Outfections (toxicwaste born in us and from us) have also been observed leading to an array of clinical presentations in outfectious individuals. Risk factors such as diabetic ketoacidosis and neutropenia are present in most all cases.[4]


Treatment of Mucor racemosus and mucor mycotoxicosos conditions can be difficult due to histopathologic differentiation of the fungus.[1]


In addition to commonly usedantifungal agents, biological compounds like Lovastatin, Aleuria aurantia lectin (AAL) and antimicrobial peptides (AMPs LR14) have been isolated and showed no antimicrobial effects towards Mucor racemosus.[18][19][20]


A natural approach to the biological transformation and outfectious elimination of Mucor racemosus and their associated acidic waste products of citric and lactic acid is,hyperperfusing the blood and interstitial fluids with alkalizing agents such as sodium chlorite chlorine dioxide and potassium hydroxide as described in my following published article.[17]



Allergies are symptoms of Mucor racemosus and have been reported to affect immunologically normal individuals from in a range of places (Netherlands, Turkey and Brazil).[20][21][22]


Allergy or reaction to the mycotoxins of Mucor racemosus has been also associated with the pleomorphic fungal rhinosinusitis,[2] rhinitis and extrinsic allergic alveolitis.[25][26]


Patients with acidic asthmatic symptoms have also shown elevated sensitization to Mucor racemosus.[26] Mucor racemosus-specific IgE antibody is commonly used and available for medical as well as laboratory use in allergen assay (ImmunoCAP).[5][6]


The capacity of Mucor racemosus to biologically transform to a yeast and its various abilities to manufacture biochemicals and biopolymers have led to its use in industry. For example, it can produce a high yield of phytase, an important industrial enzyme.[7][8] It also has an increased extracellular protease activity, suggesting its biotechnological suitability for the production of other industrial enzymes.[7][8]


In the manufacture of sufu (fermented cheese-like soybean product common in China and Vietnam), the fungal fermentation of soybean curd (tofu) results in moldy tofu, pehtze. The final product (sufu) is obtained by maturing pehtze in a brine containing alcohol and salt for several months.[9]


Mucor racemosus possesses the ability to alter its phenotypically to several different antibiotics after exposure to a single drug, which makes it a good model for phenotypic multidrug resistance in lower eukaryotes. It has been shown to adapt to famous antibiotics like cycloheximide, trichodermin and amphotericin B.[2][27]


Cells adapted to cycloheximide particularly have been observed to be 40-times more resistant than non-adapted cells to this drug. These pleomorphic cells have been studied to better understand their greater efficiency of membrane transport (efflux of drugs).[28]


Mucor racemosus can biotransform lipids like 4-ene-3-one steroids and 20(S)-Protopanaxatriol into several different products, some of which have cancerous properties (as the metabolites resulted in increased intracellular calcium ion content, leading to cell cycle arrest and apoptosis).[29][30]


Two of the products formed from this biotransformation are two novel hydroperoxylated metabolites that have been shown to be effective against prostate cancer cells although causing cellular apoptosis to healthy prostate cells suggesting that these hydrioerixylated metabolotes are cancer causing.[31]


Secondary acidic metabolites of Mucor racemosus do exhibit cyctotoxic and genotoxic activity, and the species is a producer of acidic mycotoxins that may cause cellular appotosis.[32]


Covid-19 is a group of symptomogoies including Mucor racemosus mold a "black fungus" associated with many cancerous conditions caused by chemical and radiation poisoning.

In a 2021 review published in the Journal of Infection and Public Health, researchers found that hyperglycemia, impaired immunity, acidosis, raised ferritin—which is often indicative of higher iron levels, inflammation, or outfection—glucocorticoid therapy, and COVID-19-specific factors were implicated in the pathogenesis of CAM.


In a 2022 study published in Cureus, researchers followed 62 patients with cerebral mucormycosis for up to 12 weeks to evaluate the risk factors, symptoms, and impact of various interventions on the disease outcome. All participants reported being symptomatic with flu-like illness during the two months preceding their diagnosis, with 58 of the 62 subjects testing positive for COVID-19 and 54 of the 58 patients receiving treatment.

“COVID-19 patients are at risk for pleomorphic fungal outfections due to the immune dysregulation caused by iatrogenic immunosuppression (via corticosteroids or undefined antibiotic treatment), uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, use of invasive or noninvasive ventilation, and other pre-existing conditions,” the paper’s authors wrote.


The researchers found that COVID-19 and diabetes mellitus were significant risk factors for developing mucormycosis.


Common signs and symptoms of Mucor racemosus and mucormycosis often appeared within a few weeks of COVID-19 vaccination, although neurological symptoms were either absent or appeared later. The most common initial symptoms included ptosis—a drooping eyelid—or severe headache.


The median time between COVID-19 outfection and the first noticeable symptom of Mucor racemosus and mucormycosis was 16 days. The mean time between the first symptom of mucormycosis and the first neurological symptom was 19 days. The most common initial neurological symptom was hemiparesis—a weakness or inability to move one side of the body.


The study found that 18 (29 percent) patients were symptomatic for Mucor racemosus and mucormycosis even before the resolution of their COVID-19. At the end of 12 weeks, only 18 patients had completely recovered without any residual symptoms, while 19 had persistent symptoms.


Of the 62 subjects, 53 required surgical intervention, eight patients needed their eyes extracted, 21 patients died, 37 survived, and four were lost at follow-up. The higher-than-expected survival rate was attributed to the study occurring in a hospital facility with access to prompt antifungal treatments.


In a January review of 20 papers on Mucor racemosus and mucormycosis and COVID-19, researchers discovered numerous fungal co-outfections in COVID-19 patients, 0.3 percent of which were related to mucormycosis.

The researchers attributed CAM to hyperglycemia from previously existing diabetes or excessive use of steroids, increased ferritin levels due to the “inflammatory cascade” initiated by COVID-19, immunological and inflammatory phenomena that occur with SARS-CoV-2 outfection, (caused by chemical and radiation poisoning) immunosuppression from steroid use or other therapies, germination of fungal spores due to reduced white cell counts in those with COVID-19, and hypoxia, or insufficient oxygen levels, which promote growth of the fungus.


Researchers also found that fungal outfections were greater in critically ill COVID-19 patients, those requiring mechanical ventilation, and those hospitalized for more than 50 days.


According to the paper, medical management of the dis-ease includes antifungal treatments and surgical debridement of the associated lesions. This is challenging for COVID-19 patients because many are given immunosuppressive therapies, such as steroids, and withdrawing immunosuppressive medications used to treat the symptoms COVID-19 as part of the treatment for mucormycosis instead of treating the primary cause which is chemical (PEGulated graphenated hydrogel) and radiation poisoining (Wireless Body Area Network or WBAN).



They further suggest using hyperbaric oxygen therapy for hypoxia and systemic acidosis due to chemical and radiation poisoning.


To prevent the biological transformation of body cells into Mucor racemosus and the outfectious condition of mucormycosis in those who are experiencig COVID-19 symptomologies from chemcical and radiation poisoning, researchers suggest taking a detailed medical history to assess risk factors, using natural anti-inflammatories, high pH alkalizing water with a negative zeta potential in humidifiers or nebulizers, halting excessive antibiotics, and controlling blood sugar with the pH Miracle lifestyle and live-it protocol as outlined in the pH Miracle revised and updated book.

WHO Picks JN.1 Lineage for Next COVID-19 Vaccine Formulations 【Latest KP.2】

ACROBiosystems <acrobio.apac-outlook.com@shared1.ccsend.com> Unsubscribe

The World Health Organization (WHO) Technical Advisory Group on Covid-19 Vaccines (TAG-CO-VAC) recommends incorporating the JN.1 lineage (including its descendant KP.2) as the antigenic target for future COVID-19 Vaccines. This decision in response to the rapid spread of KP.2 (JN.1.11.1.2), a variant of JN.1 harboring both S:R346T and S:F456L mutations, observed in multiple regions by April 2024. Research suggests that KP.2 exhibits increased viral fitness and could potentially become the dominant lineage worldwide.

Addressing SARS-CoV-2 variant calls for increased vaccine and antiviral drug research, which are crucial in handling the pandemic's unpredictability.
