We can and should be doing better…
This is insane. Even when something dead-nuts safe like Vitamin D finally emerges, irrefutably, to be of massive benefit, what does the UK NHS do? They decide to ship only 400 IU per patient/day.
That’s roughly 1/10th what’s needed to boost serum levels to the safe and effective range of 50 ng/ml.
A ‘futurecast’ from Hannibal Spotsbury explains what comes next.
Also the Drug Which Shall Not Be Named (DWSNBN) is back in the news. This time from India where it conferred a 90% reduction in Covid cases among high risk health care workers. Add it all up and there’s a TON that we could be doing to effectively limit the spread and severity of Covid…but aren’t.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
