Dr. Michael Holick, professor of medicine, physiology and biophysics at Boston University School of Medicine, is an expert on Vitamin D, and we have featured his work on Health Impact News in the past.
Much of Dr. Holick’s previous work on Vitamin D has been in the area of “brittle bone” diseases, which often lead to false charges of Shaken Baby Syndrome and wrongly accusing parents of committing child abuse based on radiology reports showing bone fractures that have healed in young children, who are basically Vitamin D deficient.
A recent study conducted by Dr. Holick and his associates looked at samples from Quest Diagnostics of more than 190,000 Americans from all 50 states and found that those who had deficient levels of vitamin D had 54% higher COVID positivity compared to those with adequate levels of vitamin D in the blood.
Stop waiting for a miracle drug: A Boston University doctor says a sufficient amount of vitamin D can cut the risk of catching coronavirus by 54%.
“People have been looking for the magic drug or waiting for the vaccine and not looking for something this simple,” said Dr. Michael Holick, professor of medicine, physiology and biophysics at Boston University School of Medicine.
Holick and his colleagues studied blood samples from Quest Diagnostics of more than 190,000 Americans from all 50 states and found that those who had deficient levels of vitamin D had 54% higher COVID positivity compared to those with adequate levels of vitamin D in the blood.
The risk of getting coronavirus continued to decline as vitamin D levels increased, the study, published in the Public Library of Science One peer-reviewed journal shows.
“The higher your vitamin D status, lower was your risk,” Holick said.
Many people are vitamin D-deficient because there are only small amounts in food, Holick said. Most vitamin D comes from sun exposure and many are deprived, especially during winter months.
But the sunshine vitamin is easy to find and relatively cheap in drug stores, and taking vitamin D pills comes at no risk. “It’s perfectly safe,” Holick said.
“It’s considered to be, by many, the nutrient of the decade,” Holick said.
COVID-19 positivity is strongly associated with vitamin D levels in the blood, a relationship that stayed the same across different races, sexes and age ranges, the study states.
So now we can add Vitamin D to the list of simple, effective cures for SARS-CoV-2, joining hydroxychloroquine, Vitamin C, ozone treatment, among others.
Of course Big Pharma and the government health dictators will continue to deny these treatments, because the ramifications for their effectiveness would prove they are criminals and mass murderers, and that a COVID vaccine and new COVID drugs are just simply not needed.
Then they would have to give the government back their $1 TRILLION + in funding to develop these drugs and treatments, and face charges in a court of law for mass murder by preventing these treatments, and attacking doctors who use them to save patients’ lives.
Real cures are just simply not profitable for Big Pharma and their Wall Street bankers who control the government, and they cannot be allowed.
