I'm looking at ATCV-1. It is a chlorovirus. It would be interesting to see if the rate of infection is higher in the coastal areas. One wonders about the prevalence in populations that consume raw fish. Similarly, populations consuming alot of raw sea plants might also have a higher infection rate. ATCV-1 can survive freezing at -70C. Here is chlorovirus a that makes SOD. Perhaps there is a survival advantage. http://1.usa.gov/113MJLk If the virus is as virulent as in algae, it should produce noticeable irritation in the throat. It is postulated that intelligence is affected by the inflammatory load of the virus. Given the experience with HPV,I would not be surprised to find other novel infections of the throat in the future. In my view, the capsid is rather large. It is difficult to imagine what the countermeasures might be. More study, obviously. As always, I think my fitness and diet recommendations might help.
