Parasites of various kinds contain Chitosans which stimulate our bodies to heal. Some plants contain chitinases which dissolve chitosan along with
the chitin so it kills parasites. Medicines often contain Chitinases to suppress our immune system so the medicines are not rejected so we don't get
an immediate bad reaction. It does this because the Chitinases chosen suppress the mamillian chitinase that humans produce. Plant chitinases also
suppress the mamillian chitinase to a certain extent when we eat them, this boosts our immune system by not constantly using the chemicals of our
immune system up.
Meanwhile, some plant chitinases can break apart the chitosan and this can slow healing. Chitosan is also found in stuff like shrimp and anything
that has a shell...sea bugs. These shelled animals are good for us for this reason but they often contain high levels of bromides, because they live
on the bottom. Bromide levels are different in different areas of the ocean and I cannot find out which areas are of concern.
Back to the topic. I wonder what system the prions use to misfold the cells. Evidently the chitinase in plants is not fixing this problem. If we
strengthened the mamillian chitinases we produce, I doubt if this will help either. Many foods we are told to eat, lots of the antioxidant foods,
slow cell death and may make the problem worse. Our body needs to act swiftly to destroy these prion cells before they can build defenses to avoid
detection. Seems like taking anything that even slightly suppresses our immune system or scrambles the signals to the cells could have a negative
effect, allowing the prions to take hold. Cancer makes a protective mucus coating on it that bromelain or papain can disolve, these two enter our
system through our stomach. They do not tolerate heat well though. Bromelain does not pose a lot of risk, grapefruits and pineapples eaten
occasionally do not hurt, but papain is a problem if not denatured by heat. Too much bromelain and you break down the mucus in the lungs, stomach,
and intestines and this can cause problems also. This same mucus protects cells all over the body, without it we would have lots of inflammation.
Grapefruit and pineapple are medicines unless cooked.
So is it a mucus that protects the misfolded proteins?
