Weird study (or I have yet to fully understand it).

Proportionately, a placebo subject is more likely to suffer adverse effects (AE) than a vaccinated subject.   Strikes me as counterintuitive. 

As for the public health policy implications, what are they?   Hire a battery of counselors and psychologists to treat the vaccinated?   Or pre-emptively send these professionals to the homes of the unvaccinated?

Study Finds Cannabis Compounds Prevent Infection By Covid-19 Virus

Cannabinoids Block Cellular Entry of SARS-CoV-2 and the Emerging Variants 

Actually they are non-psychoactive compounds found in Hemp......   

and smoking pot has no effect .......    


Damn!  Science can be so cruel on occasion.  Sigh.

Variolation was the method of inoculation first used to immunize individuals against smallpox (Variola) with material taken from a patient or a recently variolated individual, in the hope that a mild, but protective, infection would result.

The procedure was most commonly carried out by inserting/rubbing powdered smallpox scabs or fluid from pustules into superficial scratches made in the skin. The virus was normally spread through the air, infecting first the mouth, nose, or respiratory tract, before spreading throughout the body via the lymphatic system. In contrast, infection of the skin usually led to a milder, localized infection - but, crucially, still induced immunity to the virus. The patient would develop pustules like those caused by naturally acquired smallpox. Eventually, after about two to four weeks, these symptoms would subside, indicating successful recovery and immunity.

The method was first used in China, India, parts of Africa and the Middle East before it was introduced into England and North America in the 1720s in the face of some opposition.

(Source.)


Virus collectives from the wounds of smallpox patients who had survived the disease were used. Usually, material was taken from a pustule of sick people using a lancet, which was then introduced subcutaneously, i.e. through small wounds, into the arm or leg of healthy people.<2> As a result, healthy people were administered attenuated (weakened) viruses. A live attenuated vaccine was used. The immune response should be triggered by the multiplication of the viruses. However, the viruses could become disease-causing again through reverse mutation during their replication, which led to a relatively high death rate (2–3%)<3> among those treated in this way. After all, at that time the mortality rate with this treatment was lower than after infection without previous variolation.<4> <5> According to a calculation from 1722, this was 1:14 for non-inoculated and 1:91 for inoculated children.<1> Another problem was that other diseases, such as g. syphilis or tuberculosis.<2> In addition, a (real) smallpox epidemic could be triggered by the variolation.<6>

(GT translation from German Wikipedia entry on Variolation)

Still remember the pustules on my upper arm as a child. 

Looking at history and origins of  vaccination, this historical view somewhat reminds me of today. 

Are we stoneage-ingly progressing? And if yes, where to?

In case you think our politicians did a good job on vaccine development:
 
"The first SARS epidemic was short-lived, and there was little need for Bottazzi and Hotez’s vaccine – until the virus that causes COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, emerged in 2019. So they dusted off their vaccine and updated the spike protein to match that of SARS-CoV-2, creating the CORBEVAX vaccine.

"A large U.S.-based clinical trial found the vaccine to be safe, well tolerated and over 90% effective at preventing symptomatic infections. The vaccine received emergency use authorization in India, and other developing countries are expected to follow.

"Interestingly, the group at Baylor was not able to drum up interest or funding in the U.S. for their vaccine. Instead, newer technologies such as mRNA vaccines raced ahead, even though Bottazzi and Hotez’s vaccine design was more advanced, thanks to their previous work during the 2003 SARS and 2012 MERS outbreaks.
