A NEW STUDY SHOWING LUNGS AGE ~15 YEARS POST-COVID. SPED EXPLAINS THE FINDING.
Working on describing the mechanism of how SPED accelerates aging.
A new study (September 29, 2022) determined that:
Irrespectively of COVID-19 severity, participants who had had COVID-19 demonstrated a modest increase in ventilation inhomogeneity, broadly equivalent to that associated with 15 years of aging.
When analyzing the participants’ breathing, it was determined that their diffusion capacity for the lung was greatly impaired. So much so that it was the equivalent of approximately 15 years of aging on the lung, irrespective of COVID severity. Yes, just having had COVID caused this to happen.
They looked for an explanation and found it. This agrees completely with and fully supports the SPED hypothesis.
As acute COVID-19 pneumonia is associated with pulmonary vascular endothelialitis and microthrombi, one possibility is that the reductions in DLCO and in red blood cell to tissue Xe ratio were caused through some loss of small vessels and capillaries in the lung.

I am working on explaining how SPED affects the body’s metabolic homeostasis, increasing the overall biological age of an individual.
