Jeff Grimm is very versed on the topic of autophagy, longevity and cellular senescence particularly as it relates to immune health.
Normally eyes roll when senescence is mentioned, but with multiple reports coming out showing an age-related decline in immunity is linked with poor COVID-19 outcomes, it’s a timely conversation.
Today’s show is brought to you by Redmond Real Salt, hand-harvested and microplastic free salt:
In today’s show Jeff discusses science-based ways to get rid of these senescent (old) cells—which may help both longevity and immunity.
I know the words may be complex, but the conversation is well worth the listen and we have show notes to help you learn along the way.
Hope you enjoy this deep dive into immunity, longevity, autophagy and more,

Scientists at Duke University have been studying how other mammals like bats are seemingly unaffected by coronaviruses (including SARS-CoV).

When infected by the same viruses that land humans into the ICU and onto a ventilator, bats mount an early and robust initial immune response but don’t have the ongoing, exaggerated pro-inflammatory response that’s often fatal to us.
Translation: bats have a unique way to throttle down their immunity after an initial burst.
Here’s a video that’ll explain more: https://bit.ly/2JlM7ZW
In humans with severe COVID-19 illness, the characteristic cytokine storm (exaggerated, pro-inflammatory response) is thought to be the driving factor behind respiratory and organ failure leading to poor outcomes and non-survival.
Here are two reasons why you should care about this animal research:

Coronavirus: How It Gets In You (via ACE2 receptor), Who's at Increased Risk & Features of Survivors VS Non-Survivors
After reading these recent pathology reports (which found extensive lung tissue damage even prior to the onset of any symptoms) I’ve become fascinated by this highly transmissible virus.
Check out the references and show notes: http://bit.ly/2QgMQzy
To help you better understand some oft overlooked details about this highly-transmissible virus and possibly better manage your risk, I’ve summarized this recently published research.
