I'm just now learning about Exosomes Theory vs. Virus Theory, and I find it really interesting!
Here's the video I just watched:
It's interesting to me how I didn't learn this when I was younger. If others have links or simplified studies, would love it if you could share so I could learn more.
Cause vs. Effect - Virus Theory assumes that RNA is the cause of the sickness, infecting, replicating, and spreading within the body, and from person to person. Exosome Theory shows that a toxic environment causes the body to purge damaged RNA/DNA from the body, which can sometimes show as sickness.
Environment can be toxic to the body, including soil, water, air, food, or psychological elements.
After exposure, the body produces an immune response to this toxic environment.
The poisoned RNA/DNA genetic material is packaged in the form of an Exosome, excreted from the cell, circulated through the body, and purged from the body.
Exosomes can act as messengers to alert other cells to potential poison, so those cells can take action to remove the bad RNA/DNA.
The body purges Exosomes from the body at different rates throughout the year, with higher rates showing as "sickness."
Exosomes do not cause illness or are infectious, but they do spread throughout the body.
Assumes the RNA/DNA is the cause of the sickness, which infects, replicates, and spreads within the body, and from person to person
Assumes that you can transfer a purified version of the virus to a new host, and the new host would become infected
The PCR Test
Testing for “infected” or “not infected” uses a Gradient test called a PCR test
Isolated sample of material is replicated multiple times (# times is different for each test type)
After replicated, a count of RNA material is measured
If above cutoff point, considered “infectious”
If someone replicates the material enough times, everyone would be considered “infected”
