Covid-19 & Health Update: Pesticides Prematurely Age Immune Function

Hello again:

Here we share some information that chronic exposure to multiple low-level pesticides (which mimics real life) results in a prematurely aged, unbalanced and inefficient immune system. These articles acknowledge that

The general population is chronically exposed to multiple environmental contaminants such as pesticides. We have previously demonstrated that human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) exposed in vitro to low doses of a mixture of seven common pesticides showed a permanent phenotype modification with a specific induction of an oxidative stress-related senescence. (premature aging and thus immune-incompetent).

They went on to conclude:

“Our results show common characteristics of an aged tissue induced by exposure to a mixture of pesticides, long culture and to some extent MSCs from aging donor, suggesting that accelerated cellular aging can be induced by noncytotoxic doses of combined pesticides. Our results suggest that, through their MSCs premature aging effect, might participate in the acceleration of pathologies such as obesity, degenerative diseases, and cancers. In the latter case, these modifications can directly influence the fate of numerous dysplastic tissues by affecting the tumoral niche, in particular through the modifications of MSCs immune-modulatory properties.”

Bottom Line:  What this means is that chronic, low level pesticide exposures, like eating non-organic food, results in obesity, degenerative diseases, cancers, and other illnesses that are related to this immune dysfunction. In other words, it is very important to eat clean, whole, organic unprocessed foods…especially during a pandemic and beyond. Here is a link to get you started on finding and avoiding the most heavily contaminated non-organic foods as well as the cleanest foods. Of course, the best is to just simply go all organic!
