    I had this in my inbox from ncbi no idea if this is important or credible. My brain won’t allow me to read the full article but the dots on the graphs look close to the line (it does look like this is a thing).

    interesting. POTS was one of my earliest symptoms, and sulfur dioxide (E220 preservative) makes me feel ill.

    sulfur dioxide can cause vasodilation, and other cardiovascular problems, which fits with this theory. it can be reduced by taking n-acetyl-cysteine and glutathione.

    i'm wondering if the local air pollution (Peking) contributed to the subjects' sulfur dioxide levels.
