The bbc news this morning suggested that the government long since

Too many fast release carbohydrates plus too much stress (adrenaline)

- insulin resistance
- visceral fat
- high 'wrong' cholesterol.
These lead to
- type II diabetes
- hardening and plaqueing of arteries and high blood pressure and

used to treat it. Almost by definition it is a disease of more or less
couch potatoes and makes it extremely difficult to get adequate exercise
and have a decent aerobic efficiency.
Unventilated lungs are ripe for infections, It isn’t the virus that
