Holy Cow! Can Save the Civilization from the threat of HIV. Don’t kill it.

Holy Cow! Clueless scientists look for HIV cure in cows, get shock of their lives.

FE Online | New Delhi | July 23, 20917:: Cows can cure HIV. Surprised? Well this is what researchers in the US have found. A study published in journal Nature by researchers at Scripps Research Institute, the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI) and Texas A&M University has found that cows hold the clue to HIV cure. The researchers were able to induce potent antibodies against HIV in cows. Cows never get infected by HIV. Their immune systems produce unique antibodies against infections.

As part of the research, the scientists injected four calves with HIV immunogens, reports the The researchers discovered that the cows quickly developed bNAbs, or a neutralising antibody that defends a cell from an antigen or infectious body by neutralizing any effect it has biologically, to HIV in their blood. An immunogen is any antigen capable of inducing humoral and/or cell-mediated immune response instead of immunological response.

The scientists were pleasantly shocked by the unique discovery. “I was shocked,” TIME quoted study author Devin Sok as saying. He said that the calves developed responses against HIV at an unanticipated speed. Not only this, the scientists were also able to isolate the antibodies from the calves and they identified “NC-Cow 1” as the most powerful antibody attacking the HIV.

With the study, the scientists were able to study how the immune systems of cows is capable of creating such antibodies.

According to TIME, understanding of the immune system of cows that effectively develops antibodies against HIV is a “valuable information” for the scientists, who are hoping to develop an HIV vaccine. It will, however, depend on whether the scientists are able to develop a way through which human bodies can mimic the process through which cows create these antibodies.

Scientists have so far been unable to develop a vaccine against HIV. After this study, the researchers are hopeful of applying their finding on humans.

HIV is a global menace. According to a report by Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS, UNAIDS, ‘Ending AIDS: Progress towards the 90-90-90 targets’, India, China and Pakistan are among the 10 countries that accounted for more than 95 per cent of all new HIV infections in the Asia and the Pacific region in 2016.

    COW (Gao) Biswasya Matera

    The Cow is a holy and venerable animal for Hindus and Buddhists. Hindu and Buddhist scriptures view the cow in the form of a mother all over the world, especially in Nepal and India. Since the Vedic period, the cow’s body has been accepted as the spirits of various Gods and Goddess. Many Vedic books mentioned – ‘Gao Biswasya Matera’ or Cow is the mother in the world for human beings. It is a belief that people who look upon the cow with devotion and worship attain blessings and enlightenment. Such conclusions were given precedence in Shrimadbhagawat Mahapurnana (Hindu’s greatest religious book) and Gopalas started worshipping the cow.

    ‘The cult of Pashupati is an ancient one. The Gopals, who were cow herders and the first ruling dynasty of Nepal, are credited with popularizing Pashupati. One of the cows stopped giving milk. Finding this odd, the cow’s owner followed it one day. The cow went to the present site of Pashupati temple on the banks of the Bagmati River and started giving milk. The cow herder and his friends dug up the earth to see what was there. Suddenly a terrible flame came from the hole and killed every one who stood close by. This was reported to a hermit named ‘Ne’. He covered the flame with sand and clay and worshiped it as Jyotirlinga’.-(Mukundaraj Aryal).
    In Krishna’s characterization, his affection towards the cow has also been presented. Krishna gained victory over King Indra Maharaj when they confronted each other during the worship of Govardan Parbat (Hill). In Ramayan – (a great Hindu epic) King Dilip serves cow in order to bring happiness and peace in his country, and wishing encouragement and intellect for his children.
    There is a story relating to how the cow had wanted to test Dilip’s devotion. The cow is said to have turned into a lion and attacked another cow. Then the King intervened and pleaded with the lion – ‘Eat me not the cow.’ The cow seeing the King’s devotion was filled with joy, and decided to show him her real form – a Goddess.

    The Cow has been declared Nepal’s national animal for it has the supreme qualities of animals. The cow was venerated as the mother goddess in early Mediterranean civilizations. The cow became important in India, first in the Vedic period, but only as a symbol of wealth. In the Mahabharata, Bhishma- a great religious personality and warrior, also observes that the cow acts as a surrogate mother by providing milk to human beings for their whole life. So the cow is regarded as the mother of the world.

    I want to bring out the topic of Kamdhenu (mysterious God gifted) – ‘Cow’. Parshuram Rishi’s father Jamdagni Rishi had the Kamdhenu cow. A King named Sahastraarjun had been hunting all day (time past) then in the evening time he went to Rishi’s cottage as a guest, and he received sumptuous and enough food. He wondered at how such a poor Rishi could provide so much food. The King inquired and found out that it was due to Kamdhenu cow’s blessings. The King forcibly took away the cow against Rishi’s consent which was later reclaimed by Rishi’s son Parashuram, whom having broken off his meditative trance fought against the King for the cow. This is mentioned in many Hindus scriptures. It is mentioned in the scripture of Himwatkhanda-Nepal that milk used to flow perpetually from the cow onto the Jyotirlinga in Pashupatinath.

    Many cows are bred in Nepal’s Gaushala and Mrigasthali. Yogi Narharinath, a great Hindu scholar was a great devotee of the cow. Up to 2002, the Yogi had a calf to guard his cottage. The calf never left his site when the Yogi fell ill. After the death of the Yogi the calf cried effusively. This incident is known to this author in the capacity of an eye witness. Later the calf used to visit the spot where the Yogi took Samadhi (burial meditation) once a day and encircle it. It is believed that the cow is conscious and has adequate power.
    Hindus worship the cow as Goddess Laxmi. Every year cow is worshiped during the Hindu festival of Tihar. The day of worship is known as Gai Tihare Aunsi – around 25/26 Oct. The Cow is worshiped in every household. Cow’s urine and dung is needed during any auspicious occasion. It is Hindu tradition to slather the floor with cow’s dung to make it pure. The cow’s dung can also kill germs; so its use is good for health as well. The house that breeds a cow has a different décor. The excreta of other animals as buffalo, horse, rhino produces germs while the cow’s excreta kills them. All animals do not have the same nature. Cow’s excreta can also be used as a replacement of fuel. The cow’s milk, curd, ghee, urine, dung are the five elixir-like products which are known collectively as Panchaamrit – (five nectar)

    A cow’s milk is highly nutritious that its advantages are hard to explain. A cow gives plenty of milk besides her own café. There is enough milk provided by cow for the entire family otherwise it will go into the drain. That is the Nature Laws. Those who keep cows benefit economically in numerous ways by selling its milk and running a dairy. Milk cleanses our body and keeps it healthy as well as increases our intellectual power. There is no need to explain the advantages of the products of a cow. It is written in the Artha Veda that cows’ extinction from earth would result in Sun’s increase in temperature that would ultimately destroy the planet. This shows that the earth and cow have a significant relation. This Vedic expression can be understood in a simple meaning that the relation between the two is conditional and dependent. Those who drink and use cow’s milk, proved brilliant and intellectual. And the buffalo’s milk user has been proved dull and blunt. The cow’s urine (Gauut) and dung can turn soil fertile and help crops to grow. The grasses that sprout from the soil, straw, stalk, and other grains can be used as fodder for cow which retains the traditional balance.

    A cow’s significance is huge. We need to open the discussion, which is highly necessary, if we should consume cow’s meat or not. During the Vedic period the Risihis’ had observed a ritual sacrifice of the cow which brought all curses of diseases as leprosy, Dusadhya, Rajyayachma and Ohjayachma different kinds of diseases that led the Rishis to their death. So the ritual was not observed. To consume the cow’s meat can be compared to consuming slow poison. The killing of cow and its sacrifice was banned. To eat cow’s meat is in reality like consuming poison. Those who are used to eating beef have low immunity resistance, and they easily fall prey to the diseases, which ultimately claim their lives; so all sectors ought to be alert to this danger. In Saudi Arab to take a picture of Lord Shiva is banned, it is prohibited. In similar manner if beef is allowed to enter the holy land of Nepal for the consumption by tourists the government ought to impose strict regulation against it. It is the subject of the sensitivity of this land. In the name of secularism no one has the right to kill the aspirations of the majority in the interest of the minority of the country.

    Once there were news that people in Britain went mad and became ill after consuming cow’s meat. They had even stopped consuming cow’s meat. Then, the British Government banned cow’s meat. In many beef eating countries banned the beef from Britain. After that, some Britain’s media reported that, so many British left eating cows’ meat. If a person suffering from arthritis consumes sheep’s meat, and if a person with pressure consumes the meat of a castrated goat then they suffer from unnecessary thoughts. If a person eats beef that person suffers from bad breath. There must have been an ulcer inside the stomach. To eat goat’s meat for the blood- pressure patients and to eat the sheep’s meat for the rheumatism patients will harmful. So, the beef is also becoming the causes of the obesity and increases cholesterol level which is very dangerous for heart. Sometimes it also spread diseases like e-coli and b-coli.
    An Indian cultural export Subodh Kumar writes-‘The Enemies of civilized behavior think that cows cannot defend themselves. They kill cows, but by their conduct such persons, fire the hearts of right mind men who hound such enemies of civilized behavior to punish them here on earth in this world and the next world.
    ‘न ब्राह्मणो हिंसितव्यो3ग्निः प्रियतनोरिव ।
    सोमो ह्य स्य दायद इन्द्गो अस्याभिशस्तिपाः ॥ अथर्व 5-18-6
    They (Cows) should never be killed. They provide with warmth and comfort like fire, provide the highest forms of intellect, and fill the individuals with qualities strength and valor to be victorious in all situations.
    शतापाष्ठां नि गिरति तां न शक्नोति निःखिदन्‌ ।
    अन्नं यो ब्रह्मणां मल्वः स्वाद्व द्यीति मन्यते ॥ अथर्व 5-18-7
    The unfortunate persons, who kill and rejoice in eating their (cow’s) flesh, suffer with innumerable maladies from which they can never recover. Arun Upadhyay writes-‘It is rightly stated that cow milk and not meat is good for human beings. Actually, it is for whole world. But only the fanaticism against Hinduism has started killing of cows. Cow milk is used all over the world for infants as substitute for mother’s milk and for persons of all ages. Thus, cow is literally mother for humanity and we cannot show any disrespect to mother. Actually, in Islam itself, highest obligation is called ‘Doodh ka karj’ gratefulness for milk offered by mother ‘.
