We know that as viruses spread, their genetic makeup can change, meaning the virus can mutate into variants. In a scenario with mass vaccination, a mechanism called antibody-dependent enhancement can occur. This means that instead of stopping an infection, antibodies actually can become more infectious. 

On today’s show, we’re diving into a new study on antibody-dependent enhancement, or ADE. You’re going to learn specifics about how certain antibodies behave in the body, and how COVID-19 can become more infectious and transmissible through ADE. We’re going to talk about vaccination campaigns and efficacy, and what we should consider about vaccines. 

More importantly, we’re going to talk about the most urgent and relevant topic of all: how we can get our citizens and communities healthier to ward off disease and viral infections. I hope this topic resonates with you and that you walk away from this episode feeling informed and empowered. So listen in, take good notes, and join me for this episode of The Model Health Show!

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • What antibody-dependent enhancement is. 
  • The difference between neutralizing antibodies and facilitating antibodies.
  • How neutralizing antibodies are stacking up against the delta variant. 
  • Why mass vaccination can lead to antibody-dependent enhancement. 
  • The reason why ADE is often dismissed. 
  • How many variants there are of COVID-19.
  • Why we need to focus on improving our health, now more than ever. 
  • The truth about why cases are being highlighted in unvaccinated individuals. 
  • How ADE can make the virus more infectious.
  • The difference between relative risk reduction and absolute risk reduction.
  • What’s happening in Israel, the world’s most vaccinated population.
  • The problem with censorship in the US.
