50% Humidity & Health

Can the human chattel regarded as the Victim Class ward off colds and flu without non-consensual “cost effective” medical intervention?


Here’s one way — 50% humidity.

If the air is too dry, use a humidifier.

If the air is too wet, use a dehumidifier.

It’s a Yin Yang thing.

Don’t forget to eat some salt (sodium chloride).

Today’s test-tube boffins conveniently “forgot” yesteryear’s research.

It’s yet another example of Medical Amnesia.


According to “Humidity Kills Germs: Air-borne disease germs could be checked in schools, offices and theaters by a relative humidity of 50%, which seems to be lethal,” Science News Letter, Feb. 28, 1948 …

“The 50% relative humidity that is deadly to germs would not be uncomfortable for humans indoors. Climatologists have found that whether the air is wet, dry or humid makes very little difference in comfort so long as the temperature ranges between 50 and 68 degrees Fahrenheit. That upper temperature level and the approximately 72 degrees Fahrenheit temperature of the studies with germs are fairly close to each other and to the usual indoor temperatures. Temperatures in the fifties and nineties make a difference in the germ-killing effect of humidity.”


According to “Humidity Checks Germs: A 50 percent relative humidity reduces the infecting ability of influenza virus about four-fifths, experiments indicate,” Science News Letter, Oct. 16, 1948) wrote …

“Salt seems to play an important part in the anti-virus and anti-germ effect of humidity. At 50% humidity all the mice died when exposed to virus free of salt. This is in line with the findings of Mr. [Edward W.] Dunklin and Dr. [Theodore T.] Puck on pneumonia, staphylococcus and strep[tococcus] germs. They suggested that the humidity plays its lethal role on the germs by dehydrating them to the point where they become most vulnerable to the action of salt. In the Dunklin-Puck experiments germs sprayed from salt solution or from human saliva, which is the natural way they get into the air, were rapidly killed.”


According to comedian Steven Wright …

“For my birthday I got a humidifier and a dehumidifier. I put them in the same room and let them fight it out.”

    Another variation of Yellow Fat Disease is Shrunken Heart Disease.

    Cod liver oil has been known to cause it.
