PANAF 6 - ANTI-FUNGAL
One need only reflects on the devastating affect that potato blight had on Ireland in the 19th century where some 15% of the Irish population died of starvation to realize the severity of this problem. Researchers from the University of Oxford have estimated that currently some 125 million tons of the top five food crops – rice, wheat, maize, potatoes and soya beans are damaged annually by fungal infections. The lost yield could have fed some 600 million people, and the loss of rice, wheat and maize alone costs the industry $60 billion per annum. The study group estimated that in 70% of cases where infectious disease causes extinction of a type of animal or plant, an emerging species of fungus is behind the problem, and it appears that this tendency is increasing. Prof. Sarah Gurr concluded that: "Crop losses due to fungal attack challenge food security and threaten biodiversity, yet we are woefully inadequate at controlling their emergence and proliferation. …”
However, it now appears that even certified seeds are infected with fungi, as can be seen from the slide on right. The effect is that these fungi attack and damage new seedling root and consequently seeds do not grow. Farmers experience a germination rate of as low as 50%.
PANAF 6 BENEFITS
The retention of ANODS in the cell wall and cell membrane can be clearly seen from a photo taken of the above fungus after 24 hours.
IN VITRO STUDIES
Our initial tests of the formula on a variety of fungi were highly encouraging and we share these results below. However, it stands to reason that extensive in vitro studies will now be necessary to confirm the behaviour of the above formula on as wide a scope of fungal families as possible.
EXPERIMENT 1. As we are not equipped to identify the various fungal families, it is not possible to name the particular strain used in the video on the right.
EXPERIMENT 2. The objective of this experiment was to confirm the penetrating potential of the formula to the cell wall of a fungus. In the photos below the presence of ANODS are clearly noticeable inside the Cell wall after 1 hour. After 24 hours this wall was severely damaged and disrupted.
EXPERIMENT 3. The objective of this experiment was to observe whether severe damage to the cell wall of a fungus was possible. The photo below shows a fungus where after 24 hours the cell wall has been completely eradicated and is now only left with a plasma membrane. This photo also shows large numbers of ANODS in what remains of the inside of the fungus.
