    Okaaaaaay; what’s up with the Vitamin D then?

    • ProNewerDeal says:

      Mike, I am also curious about your take on Vitamin D. Dr. John Campbell (nurse) podcast notes an email from Dr Fauci where Fauci himself takes 6000 IU/day. Both Campbell & pathologist Dr Chris Martenson have cited studies about Vitamin D is correlated with lower infection prevalence (Israeli study), & in hospital treatment with lower death & severe outcomes like patient needing ventilator.

      Taking say 4000 IU/day prophylactically is seemingly a no-brainer.
