I'm not a doctor, but I got this one right... Vitamin D

So one of the things governments did to "combat" COVID-19 was lock people in their houses. Many continue to persecute those engaging in outdoor activities. Yet the evidence is growing every day that a simple 15-minute walk in the sun everyday is as good as an apple at keeping the COVID at bay.

    There was a review article from BMJ 2017 on Vit D that showed daily oral supplementation reduced all cause resp infections by 70%. Recently 2 computers programs , one from a supercomputer site and one from AI program also came up with Vit d as critical for fighting covid 19, The evidence is OVERWHELMING(>20 STUDIES)

    Excellent, Blarman!
    This in addition to the 15 year study that showed much lower morbidity from respiratory disease when Vitamin D levels are normal or higher, show that Vitamin D is crucial to fighting respiratory disease.

    Yet another scientific study that the media and government public health agencies will ignore while forcing the public to take unproven vaccines.

    I am not a doctor and dont really understand viruses. That said, I have made sure I get my Vitamin D supplement and my Vitamin D level is about 60+. I have stayed away from subways, most elevators, nightclubs, public pool parties, and if I feel sick like with a cold or flu, I get immediate rest. I do go to grocery stores, gas stations, outside activities like hiking, I wear a mask maybe half the time if in a crowed place. Call it uneducated corona protection, but at least so far, i have not contracted the virus and I have continued on with my life pretty much as I did before

    Does anyone have any extra sun they might send us, or maybe a little rain. In Nine Mile Falls WA, we haven't seen the sun for a full week now. In fact, we haven't seen any stars or even the moon during the week either. I wonder if the CA/OR/WA fires are part of a conspiracy theory. And but I found out yesterday that Pint Canning Jars are not available right now, was told they are being held on a ship from China related to Covid virus. Another conspiracy thing? At least we have plenty of Toilet Paper. I guess we'll just have to freeze out tomatoes and apples for now and can them later.

      My mother was also trying to get canning jars and encountering similar delays. The US used to can at home all over, but since most food production has moved away from the home to commercial businesses, few people even know how to can anymore. Think about how dependent that makes people on short-term access to a ready food supply...

      We are in the same boat on the east side of the Cascade range here in the TriCities . . . no wind or sunlight for at least the past four days. It is as though we are in a weather vortex. Visibility is down to 3/4 mile and has remained as such for days. The sun appears infrequently as an orange disc in the sky. When I was at the Grand Canyon, Monday Sept 7th, we had similar weather conditions. Two days later, the wind picked up and we experienced cool and cloudy days.

      I was reading that possibly six of the Oregon fires were started by arsonists. Shortly after the Portland riots (and fires) stopped, we have reports of arson in the forests. Coincidence?

        I"m a little further east, Nine Mile Falls (near Spokane). Arson is definitely a part of Soros's agenda, whatever it takes, no coincidence. I recently mentioned Soros to Jewish friend of mine who's always been on the left. She said, "Never heard of him". I told her to look him up and then we can talk, said goodbye, and haven't heard back except for one email, stating "I never knew that".

          Good for you. Education happens one voter at a time.

          I'm currently working on my nephew and his wife. They came unhinged at my mother-in-law when she posted something on Facebook. I've been educating them on their ignorance about Democrats. Still waiting to hear back what they thought when I showed them Kamala Harris voted against the Born Alive bill...

    Just returned from grocery shopping with a mask required in the store. There was a lady who at times I met in different areas and she would stop on a dime and turn the other way. Those who are scaring the elderly with with constant overhead demands to wear masks, keep your distance and it all started with the lock down which has caused many suicides especially with teens several in this area, elderly are in great fear and keeping them to this day away from person to person contact even in the assisted living homes is keeping their spirit. People around here are strange where we always had a friendly community. Was this the goal? and by the way because I could not get out as often as I had done before being told to stay home, I started D...long before mention. I have a few health issues they mention but am still covid clean.

      I'd be curious where this is happening. I have not worn a mask to date. Our local grocer had no problem with it, I was exempt, until our governor, Inslee, changed some rules. One liberal employee took it upon herself to try to chastise me, "No Mask, No Service!!: and walked away from me, twice. Her rude handling made me blow up, I went to the manager and asked if the policy changed. He told me just wear a mask while getting my coffee, then take it off. I told him I couldn't do that and walk out. Later my wife went to do some shopping and the meat dept assistant manager asked her what was wrong because of my wife's unusual demeanor. My wife, practically in tears, told her, "This morning my husband was treated like coming home from Vietnam". That's all it took, that employee told my wife that her manager will not even buy coffee when that person is serving. The next morning the store manager begged me to come back and no mask would be required, they still allowed exemptions. The server will not look me in the eye, but serves me anyway. She hates all 20 or so of us because everyone wears Trump paraphernalia, hats or shirts, and about half of them carry, some even carry openly. This is a podunk little town in the process of growing, very few liberals, but they are all alike where ever they are.

        The insane thing is that there is no evidence that wearing a mask has any effect on transmission of viruses whatsoever. The CDC finally admitted that in ten separate studies on flu transmission, a mask had no noticeable effect in any of them regardless who was wearing it. People have been brainwashed by this - and I count some of my own family.

        This my friend is happening all over the state of Colorado its been turned upside down with the current administration who is ONLY concerned of certain lives and control is is main goal. You would not believe those that comment on the local papers in the "Springs" think he is a can't write those letters for he is not...he is a puppet of the left. And just last week this puppet extended the mask requirement for another month much will be changed one way or the other on November 4 or about.

          Damn, and I thought I might like to move to Colorado, to get out from under Inslee's big thumb. Is there any place left?

            If you stay out of Moscow or Boise, Idaho's still hard red. Utah outside of SLC as well. Lived in Montana for seven years and they're a very libertarian bunch - they don't mind social programs and love gambling, just don't threaten to take away their guns! Nevada's also not bad - if you recognize that Las Vegas controls the State just like Portland controls Oregon.

        Thanks for the scoop -- I reside on the Eastern Side of the Cascades. My favorite store, Yokes Fresh Market, began to require the masks due to state and county health official 'guidelines.' And so, I don my huge gas mask and a mountain helmet covered in foil. I have gotten a few laughs from other customers as well as people giving me the thumbs up. On my next visit, I will go in the front door sans-muzzle and see what happens. Maybe I will resort to the Walmart pick-up option. The anti-science, political-posturing muzzle-mandate infuriates me.

        In other news, Inslee will be up against Culp for the Governor's seat. If I recall, there were five or more Republicans on the primary ticket ... but their total vote count matched or just edged out Inslee's count. Lots of Culp signs abound -- including those seen on my few trips to the West Side. Hope and Change!

          Culp big here in Eastern WA, signs all over. There is one exit out the market parking lot, across the street it is loaded (about 20) with nothing but "D" signs, no "R" signs at all, not even a "T" sign. Obviously one property owner on the "L(eft)".

            I have seen that as well -- one property owner peppers their yard with D signs... along with a smattering of the virtue-signaling "Hate Not Spoken Here" signs.

    Study, from Castillo Spain, showed-
    'Vitamin D reduced the rate of ICU admission from 50% to 2%.

    'The West spends billions looking for vaccines and new antivirals, but hasn’t even done the basic studies on cheap and easily available nutrients'
    'people with very low vitamin D levels are 80% more likely to catch Covid.'
    'Given that people with dark skin are more likely to be deficient in Vitamin D, wouldn’t studies like these be the best way to show that black lives actually matter? '

      Love those comments.

      Also to note: when does the rioting/looting happen? Typically after dark. Maybe since the officials won't do anything to stop them they can at least encourage the rioters to do it during daytime so they can be a little healthier. ;) [/s]

    Yes, the benefits of sunlight (which has been known for millennia, and should be common knowledge, but is being neglected for the last century or so), and Vitamin D in particular, is coming out more and more. Learning about heliotherapy has been a hobby of mine for the last year or so.... Re: VitD, even Fauci has come out (quietly) recently making the connection to C19:

    The whole "Stay Home, Stay Safe" bilge that was doled out was met with my response of "bunk!" Right after the lockdowns in Washington State, around March 20th, the local fitness centers closed. I took to increasing my time outdoors with running and exposure to fresh air and sunshine ... and, of course, no muzzle. The anti-science, political-posturing muzzle-mandate infuriates me.

    I wonder if the fact that children tend to drink vitamin d fortified milk has something to do with their resistance. Also, I wonder if the "vegan" kids are at greater risk especially if they avoid dairy products.

      Anyone who is avoiding natural sources of vitamins and minerals is going to have to get their source from something else or remain deficient and at risk.

      I've seen several studies by dieticians who recommend AGAINST vegan diets for kids and teenagers because kids and teens need the fats and fatty acids in a normal, healthy diet for brain and bodily development. (I think forcing diet fads on your children is irresponsible parenting, personally.)

        I try and talk any teens out of a vegan diet that I see as it is not healthy esp relating to complete proteins choline and natural co q 10. I do recommend grass feed beef over grain and much seafood, pastured chicken and eggs and all the vegetables they can eat.

      I understand that a vegetarian diet can be quite healthy and contain all essentials, but it would be wise to check.
      A vegan diet will definitely lead to deficiencies.
      Maybe a very carefully constructed vegan diet/menu can work, would take a dietician and much dedication. It would be safer for nominal vegans to top up with supplements- and not ask questions about ingredients.

        That is because "A" type blood individuals are better suited to a vegetarian diet, with some white meat mixed in. A type blood individuals are more prone to ole covid too! but EVERYONE needs vitamin D and the darker your skin...the harder it is to get from the sun.

        It's always a good idea to eat a healthy diet. What all should recognize is that we are all individuals with differing hormonal and other considerations so what works for one may not work for another. People should be engaged in monitoring their own health and working with a doctor (especially an endocrinologist) and a dietician if they feel they have special nutrition needs so that such needs may be properly identified and addressed. I see tons of hypochondriacs out there in the world professing one fad diet after another and look at them as the snake-oil salesmen of this day and age. (This coming from someone with a Type I Diabetic daughter, a son with Hashimoto's, a niece with Celiac's, and numerous aunts/uncles with hypoglycemia.)

    You nailed it. Especially those old people locked up, some wearing masks all day. Masks research shows let the virus in! Rioters wear hoodies, hood up, no Vit. D going to ge them! Actaully, this senior was out in the yard when I was supposed to be inside, soaking up sun, plantint grees. Then, no mask, for 4 months, met other maskless car people with my husband for outdoor coffee. Some days, I would leave my cell home, and take the Corvette for a spin, not to be locked up. Now, ComradeDdeWine has made it criminal to go in anywhere without a maks, counterproductive. He wants us to be China, I want us to be Sweden. I have not been tested. I have not been down. If someone fears me, when I am outside, let them mask up and seek false security. I take, Vit. D, C, zinc and stay active breathing maskless every minute I can.

    Just don't wear sunblock on that walk - or spend 20x as much time on that walk. It takes very little SPF to all but completely block the wavelength you need. IIRC somewhere around SPF 8-10 will block 95% of the UVB that is needed.

    Incidentally, since 20*15m is 5 hours and sunblock needs to be applied every 2 hours, if you do paste on the SPF, take extra. ;) Oh and some water.

    The ICU doctor treating my dad with COVID...First things she put him on? Vitamin D. Also did the Sorrento antiviral.

    I've been taking Vitamin D for many years and haven't had a sniffle in 15 years now.
