Yeah, cancer has 12 different symptoms, and Long COVID has 200 different symptoms. Sure seems plausible to me.

Seriously, try to find any disease other than Long COVID that’s claimed to have 200 symptoms. I can guarantee with 100% certainty that no such disease exists.

I can also guarantee you that no disease of Long COVID exists, you know why? It's not a disease.

Long COVID is a medical condition, or to put it far more accurately a collection of conditions.

Also, have you looked at that definition of 200 symptoms? You're saying cancer only has 22 symptoms, but that's untrue, because you could easily redefine those symptoms so each current symptom was 2 or 3 different symptoms simply by being more specific in your definition of each symptom.

Once again, I don't think you have any idea of what you're talking about. I'll keep asking, what are your qualifications, that allow you to assert that long COVID is pseudoscientific?

I can't leave it, your misunderstanding of data and science has really irritated me when you're being so confident in your misinterpretations.

Information sourced from

Yes, there are 22 general symptoms of cancer, however that is in no way an exhaustive list. There are more symptoms, but those are the most likely to effect you. So your claim that there are only 22 different symptoms of cancer is based on a misinterpretation of information.

Please, stop spouting rubbish you clearly don't understand.

EDIT TO ADD: I've just realised you were claiming there were only 12 symptoms of cancer and I've been saying 22 as that's the list I've been looking at. Is that in any way meaningful to you, or are you going to ignore the fact that longer lists of symptoms of cancer exist?

And from the list you're referencing on the Mayo clinic:

>Some general signs and symptoms associated with, but not specific to, cancer, include:

That precedes the list of symptoms you're banging on about. What do the words some and include mean in this context?

Yeah, I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt and guess you haven't seen my edit to my previous comment.

Has anyone claimed that long COVID is purely one disease/bodily reaction?

Or is it possible there could be 200 different diseases that make up post COVID syndrome?

Do you not have an answer for the correct and valid information you've been given?

Couldn't help but look at your profile and see all the conspiracy subs you're a member of. Is the information you've given here the best you could drudge up from those subs?

Come on dude, I really want to help you with your misunderstandings here.

You're believing conspiracy theories because you are misunderstanding/misrepresenting data and science, mixed with some poor critical thinking. We can work on that together, but you going silent when shown how you're misrepresenting things is not going to get us anywhere.

You're still posting on skeptic and conspiracy subs, so why won't you engage with someone who is trying to actively help improve your critical thinking skills?
