    Abstract

    Precipitated by chronic psychological stress, immune system dysregulation, and a hyperinflammatory state, the sequelae of post-acute Covid-19 (long Covid) include depression and new-onset diabetes. We hypothesize that exercise counters the neuropsychiatric and endocrine sequelae of long Covid by inducing the release of circulating factors that mediate the anti-inflammatory response, support brain homeostasis, and increase insulin sensitivity.

    That seems easy to test for.

    Just a lot of speculation and vague hypothesising about what causes the condition in the first place...

    Well, there's never been a better time to publish my "the solution to climate change is to drill, drill, drill for all the oil and give unprecedented powers to the oil industry to implement it ASAP" since clearly no one checks anything anyway and paying attention to reality is obviously an unnecessary burden in academia.

    I also hypothesize that drinking gasoline is good for energy. Send money, lots of it, I may need to test for the next half-century just to be sure.
