Sadly, the Dengue virus has continued to spread across the Caribbean and Central America where it occasionally continues to worsen into Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever which can be deadly. It is transmitted by mosquitoes from one person to another. It is estimated that from 50 million to 100 million are infected annually but most do not show any significant symptoms. Some immunity can develop from some forms but a second infection, if it occurs, can be much worse than the first infection.
Today, I received a call from a customer who asked me if the zapper is effective against the Dengue virus. Being unable to answer completely, I thought that an explanation of some of the issues involved might be important.
It is easy to demonstrate that the zapper can and does kill many microbes such as bacteria, protozoa, fungi, algae, etc. in water as shown in one of my previous posts. The problem with a virus is that it is too small to observe with a traditional microscope. For that reason, we can not visually verify whether or not a virus is actually being destroyed.
Anecdotally, there have been numerous reports of zappers stopping or reducing the extent of viral infections such as influenza, colds, herpes, etc. Sadly, this does not count as a valid answer but could be possibly considered as an indicator.
What is needed is to take samples of virus infected cells before and after zapping and compare the difference microscopically with an electron microscope. While the electron microscope can not observe living cells or tissues, it can be used to observe the difference between cells and tissues from before and after an event such as zapping.
In the mean time, if I were infected with the Dengue virus and were to become ill, what would I do? I would zap. I would probably choose to use either the ParaZapper CC2 or the ParaZapper MY because I find that they have the features most preferable to me. And, I would zap extensively. I would probably hook up paddles and pads, then turn the unit on, select a mode, and zap for hours on end. If I can zap away a bacterial infection in the upper jaw in the period of 1 hour, I would hope that 12 to 24 hours of zapping would be able to stop the bulk of a viral infection. If nothing else, the zapper might slow the virus down enough to allow the immune system time to react. Even better, though, is that the zapper might just kill the virus outright, just as it does to other microbes in water. As a note, I design, develop, help build, and sell ParaZapper products.
Also, I would use colloidal silver because of its antiviral properties.
So, what about SARS, MEARS, H5N1 and other influenza virus, Hanta virus, West Nile Virus, HHV-6 and other Herpes virus, Ebola, Marburg, and other severe viral infections. While the zapper is not proven effective against any of these, I would not be stopped or dissuaded from using my zapper in my fight against them.
There is more about the zapper as well as many health topics.
