American Vaev company began producing and selling paper handkerchiefs with pathogens. About it reports UPI.
The packaging of shawls, supposedly treated with mucus and saliva produced during sneezing, can be purchased for $ 80 (5.3 thousand). According to the official website Vaev, they will allow buyers to hurt on their own and on their own terms. In addition, the company believes that the infected shawls strengthen the immune system. “The handkerchief, which sneezed people, safer than needles and pills”, as stated on the website.
Professor medical school Vanderbilt University William Shaffner (William Schaffner) questioned the validity of the ideas Vaev. “It can be dangerous if scarves really are, which I doubt,” said he. According to him, there are more than 200 causative agents of the common cold. Even if the handkerchief Vaev will be able to get some of them created immunity does not insure against colds caused by one of the other viruses. Shaffner added that the virus is unlikely to survive the journey from the manufacturer of handkerchiefs to the nose.
In 2018, it was reported that a resident of Omaha, Nebraska, Kendra Jackson (Kendra Jackson) a few years suffered from the cold until I found out that all this time her nose was leaking cerebrospinal fluid.
