Healthy vitamin D levels may cut COVID19 mortality rates in half say researchers
One can sometimes gauge what people are really playing at by what they carefully never mention.
The UK government for instance, in its disingenuous briefings to plebs, never mentions – among other things :
- Sweden, South Korea, Taiwan and other countries that haven’t gone the stupid route to self-destruct known as Lockdown
- Vitamin C, D etc and other pillars of a healthy natural immuniity
One of the most notable phenomena about the COVID19 fiasco is that neither the WHO nor the government (its claims to be guided by “science” notwithstanding) put out any information about how to protect or bolster your immune system – an effort that would greatly help lower both the infection and mortality rates.
This is to be expected if the whole caper is intended to (a) talk up the virus so that it is presented as something more scary and more deadly than it actually is and (b) thus soften up the society for the arrival of mass vaccination as the “only solution” without which we are helpless.
For those running that ploy, a population well educated in how to raise their levels of natural immunity and general health is not desirable. A population uneducated in such matters, with inhibited immune defences is essential if a highly profitable dependency on vaccines and their purveyors is to be created.
Hence, a complete neglect – on the part of that pharmaceutical front group known as the WHO and government health ministers, prime ministers and other proxies for pharmaceutical interests – of what one would have thought would have been essential education had these bozos had any real interest in the health of the People.
But a sick and cowed population is what is being aimed for.
Consequently, they never mention, for example, the key role played by vitamin D.
Researchers Have Discovered a Strong Correlation Between Severe Vitamin D Deficiency and COVID-19 Mortality Rates
After studying global data from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, researchers have discovered a strong correlation between severe vitamin D deficiency and mortality rates.
Led by Northwestern University, the research team conducted a statistical analysis of data from hospitals and clinics across China, France, Germany, Italy, Iran, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States.
The researchers noted that patients from countries with high COVID-19 mortality rates, such as Italy, Spain and the UK, had lower levels of vitamin D compared to patients in countries that were not as severely affected
This does not mean that everyone — especially those without a known deficiency — needs to start hoarding supplements, the researchers caution.
“While I think it is important for people to know that vitamin D deficiency might play a role in mortality, we don’t need to push vitamin D on everybody,” said Northwestern’s Vadim Backman, who led the research. “This needs further study, and I hope our work will stimulate interest in this area. The data also may illuminate the mechanism of mortality, which, if proven, could lead to new therapeutic targets.”
The research is available on medRxiv, a preprint server for health sciences.
Backman is the Walter Dill Scott Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering. Ali Daneshkhah, a postdoctoral research associate in Backman’s laboratory, is the paper’s first author.
Backman and his team were inspired to examine vitamin D levels after noticing unexplained differences in COVID-19 mortality rates from country to country. Some people hypothesized that differences in healthcare quality, age distributions in population, testing rates or different strains of the coronavirus might be responsible. But Backman remained skeptical.

Backman said this correlation might help explain the many mysteries surrounding COVID-19, such as why children are less likely to die. Children do not yet have a fully developed acquired immune system, which is the immune system’s second line of defense and more likely to overreact.
“Children primarily rely on their innate immune system,” Backman said. “This may explain why their mortality rate is lower.”
Backman is careful to note that people should not take excessive doses of vitamin D, which might come with negative side effects. He said the subject needs much more research to know how vitamin D could be used most effectively to protect against COVID-19 complications.
“It is hard to say which dose is most beneficial for COVID-19,” Backman said. “However, it is clear that vitamin D deficiency is harmful, and it can be easily addressed with appropriate supplementation. This might be another key to helping protect vulnerable populations, such as African-American and elderly patients, who have a prevalence of vitamin D deficiency.”
