  1. did a search on sources of vit d. and NHS website has this to say..

    "Coronavirus update

    Consider taking 10 micrograms of vitamin D a day to keep your bones and muscles healthy.

    This is because you may not be getting enough vitamin D from sunlight if you’re indoors most of the day.

    There have been some news reports about vitamin D reducing the risk of coronavirus. However, there is no evidence that this is the case.

    Do not buy more vitamin D than you need."

  2. Thanks for the video, gives me a little kick to try and stick with the wholefoods. Great to see proof that common sense prevails yet again 🙂

  3. Of course, it comes as no surprise, that a healthy meat based fiber free diet has kept me totally symptom free in no-lockdown Stockholm. Have met several people above 90 here. All healthy meat eaters, also out around people every day. Also totally symptom free, of course.

  4. Very good video. This info was available from the very start of the pandemic. VitD, C and zink protect against viral infection in general (why a vaccine?). So many lives could've been saved. I'm just wondering if it isn't better to err on the safe side and take supplements rather than only rely on a healthy diet. Just because what you ingest is not what you absorb and for vitamin D especially, only a supplement can increase blood levels optimally in a reliable way. A study showed that the main vitD blood level in Italians and Spaniards was lower than in Scandinavians who rely more on supplementation due to lack of sunlight.

    "This study shows that, counter intuitively, countries at lower latitude and typically sunny countries, such as Spain and Northern Italy, had low concentrations of vitamin D and high rates of vitamin D deficiency. These countries also experienced the highest infection and death rates in Europe.
    The northern latitude countries of Norway, Finland and Sweden, have higher vitamin D levels despite less UVB sunlight exposure, because supplementation and fortification of foods is more common. These Nordic countries have lower COVID-19 infection and death rates. The correlation between low vitamin D levels and death from COVID-19 is statistically significant."
    This also a very informative video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Avc6_ftzk3w&t=44s

  5. Nice one. I’ve been looking into natural/ food- based response to cytokine storm this last week, and have tightened my diet a little as a result.

    👍

  6. Been taking vegan vit C, zinc and D3 almost immediately after this started… beat you to it Michelle!!! 😛

  7. Plenty of healthy people have died from Covid, there is a genetic component which makes you vulnerable to a cytokine storm.. In these people having a strong immune system works against them. There's also data which shows over 200,000 people have ongoing covid illness lasting 6+ weeks so far..

    "Researchers are now collaborating across borders. They are examining the latest data from European countries ahead of the UK in pandemic terms, such as Italy and Spain, as well as China. They are seeking to work out what support may be needed for severe and chronic patients, with Covid posing similar challenges to HIV/Aids a generation ago."

  8. One thing which came to light in my area was just how much disgusting junk food and meat, dairy eggs folk were consuming. As they all rallied round to form carnist networks, they wanted an endless supply of socially irresponsible foods. Shame on the NHS for not promoting and prescribing the wfpb vegan diets to the nation. Utterly disgraceful.

  9. Nearly everyone will get exposed to the Virus over time? So, how not to die from the Virus with lung conditions/problems/illnesses?
