Just curious how we have been affected by current circumstances.
My sister works in a vets office and agrees with all this, business is booming, they're opening up a 2nd office soon I think.We own a small veterinary clinic. Contrary to what we thought would happen, business freaking BOOMED when the shut-downs hit - and it hasn't let up. We're exhausted, but keeping our noses to the grindstone. Gave all the staff hazard pay bonuses with the PPP money. We've been doing curbside-only since March 16th and we have no plans to change that any time soon. 99% of people have been fine with this, but we've all got our "Karens".
Nitric oxide. I am familiar with this. It can bought as a nutritional supplement. Same stuff?lol.
nitrates and nitrites present in beets and beet greens especially. . Nitrogen monoxide levels are supported by nitrates/nitrites in food sources, though somecapacity to synthisize nitrate may exist in every living thing. Nitrogen oxides are all oxidizers because we metabolize them to urea and such, or ammonia as in pee. Function in human chemistry as a neurotransmitter specifically, resulting in vasodilator effects like male erection response.
Chlorine, ozone and many other chemicals function as oxidizers which are known to be especially toxic to Corona viruses and many other virues and bacteria. UV light kills Corona because it converts oxygen into ozone. An electrical discharge will do as much or more. Hence, an electrostatic filter in the ductwork of any HVAC system will be more effective in general in stores or offices than masks and sanitary wipes generally, reducing the "safe" social distance to anything more than a French kiss.
NO is a pretty good oxidant too. It can be transported in the blood or lymph, but mainly it is a gas so it will ooze outta your fluids including saliva and mucous or any wet surface at some rate.
Lessee....... Nitrogen can have a whole series of oxidative states, or valences. Like Chlorine. Nitrates are explosive if finely mixed with reduced chemical species. NO3, is nitrate. HNO3 is nitric acid and N has valence +5. It oxidizes stuff, going to a lower valence and donating ab oxygen atom to whatever it is oxidizing. Nitrous Oxide would be the next in the series, with HNO2 nitrous acid. N valence +3.Nitric oxide. I am familiar with this. It can bought as a nutritional supplement. Same stuff?
