According to Medical News Today …
“Too little copper can lead to neutropenia. This is a deficiency of white blood cells, or neutrophils, which fight off infection.
“A person with a low level of neutrophils is more likely to get an infectious disease.”
Copper is easy to acquire if you eat whole foods.
Re: What affects copper’s bioavailability?
C. Kies & J. M. Harms (“Copper absorption as affected by supplemental calcium, magnesium, manganese, selenium and potassium,” Advanced Experimental Medical Biology, 1989) wrote …
“Effects of feeding supplements of calcium, magnesium, manganese, selenium and potassium on dietary copper bioavailability of humans were investigated. Results indicated that the calcium supplements depressed fecal copper losses and improved body copper retention as did potassium supplements. Magnesium and selenium supplementation of diets resulted in increased apparent fecal losses of copper while no effect of manganese supplementation was found. It may be that the unexpected positive effect of calcium on copper utilization was due to its neutralizing effect on the relatively high level of ascorbic acid provided by the constant background diet. Ascorbic acid is known to inhibit the absorption of copper.”
Keep this in mind. Dehydroascorbic acid is not the same as ascorbic acid.
Guess which one is most abundant in Nature?
Keep this also in mind. The quantitative presence of copper is not the same as the qualitative bioavailabilty of copper.

Re: Far as I can tell, regular weather and pressure changes have rather more influence on us than space weather, unless it fries the power grid.
Pressure is a major force.
Before pressurized airplanes, more than 2,000 or so U.S. airmen had to deal with exploding colons during World War II.
You can’t make this crap up … but you can blow it up!
Fart Free, Whenever You May Be! …
An estimated two thousand airmen died from intestinal over-pressurization during World War II.
Their intestines expanded and ruptured when unpressurized B-17 bombers reached an altitude of 20,000 feet.
This often happens at ground level too.
Blood pressure is a minor pressure compared to overall internal gaseous pressure.

Re: Can someone explain to me why all functional doctors and orthomolecular doctors recommend the use of vitamin D and the use of omega 3, and here [Ray Peat Fans] they do not recommend it?

Sunlight is the best source of vitamin D — unlike supplements, it’s multi-frequency D.
Expose your body or your food and drinks.

Supervillain Michael Milken wears a cloak of invisibility.
He’s one of the James Bond Masterminds behind the Covid Jab-demic
I’ve been saying so for a year and a half. No one else has a clue.
Where did Fascist Fauci recently give his talks? The Milken Institute.
