    -implying the baseless absurd claim that if it is large scale research, specifically as opposed to small scale research, then the results are rigged by the funders to, not find out the truth, but rather make a rigged pre-set conclusion that is the one they personally 'want' people to believe to be true.
    Why doesn't the same apply to small scale research i.e. why isn't [ ...[text shortened]... at you want while dismissing/ignoring all other studies, choose what you want to believe over truth.
    I am not implying that at all.

    I am saying that certain things will get the research to the level the you wish. Others things will not because they will never get the funding.

    Why do you make such false claims?

    Oh yeah, to divert the discussion and not have to deal with the truth of the point that I bring up.

    The link is;

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7456194/

    it says 76 patients; NOT a large enough sample size to conclude anything for certain. Nothing is proven by this study.
    It even admits this in its conclusion with;

    "larger trials with groups properly matched will be required to show a definitive answer."

    You clearly either didn't read that part or chose to ignore that part.
    As I said, you are stuck believing what people who fund large scale research want you to believe.

    Just a point to the pill poppers out there. Vitamin D is associated with a higher risk of arterial calcification unless taken with vitamin K. The stuff I take when I remember is vitamin D3 with K2. Having a decent well balanced diet in the first place is probably far better than taking random vitamin pills. Stopping smoking and drinking might be a smart move too! Says he...
    I think you will find that magnesium is a great counter for calcium as well. If you take vitamin D, cut back on your calcium and increase your intake of magnesium, as well as some sort of fish oil.

    Lol no a very normal seaside town with a mixed socioeconomic populace. I did grow up on a council estate but I didn’t see a gun until I joined the army. Did you grow up in cotton wool?
    If you think such behavior is normal for boys, then you grew up among deviants.

    link please
    I have provided it several times already

    From page 3

    Procedures
    All hospitalized patients received as best available therapy the same standard care, (per hospital protocol), of a combination of hydroxychloroquine (400 mg every 12 h on the first day, and 200 mg every 12 h for the following 5 days), azithromycin (500 mg orally for 5 days. Eligible patients were allocated at a 2 calcifediol:1 no calcifediol ratio through electronic randomization on the day of admission to take oral calcifediol (0.532 mg), or not. Patients in the calcifediol treatment group continued with oral calcifediol (0.266 mg) on day 3 and 7, and then weekly until discharge or ICU admission. Outcomes of effectiveness included rate of ICU admission and deaths.

    Go back to my post to find the actual link.

    The Democrats are run the same group as the Republicans. There is really no difference.

    There was no escape for Ireland, there is not escape in the US. The Aristocratic oppressors are the only option. Our politicians rule the land, just as the Aristocrats of old.

    Show a link to it and state the number of people sampled according to that link.
    + correlation doesn't equate with causation. If the study wasn't with randomized controls then it wouldn't have establish causation.
    It was randomized and a treatment was applied.

    You do know what that means?

    Much, albeit not all, of the funding for science research comes from people who aren't particularly rich and/or tax payers.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Funding_of_science
    "...Most research funding comes from two major sources, corporations (through research and development departments) and government (primarily carried out through universities and specialized government agen ...[text shortened]... ely by universities and government.[1]
    ..."

    Was the Spanish study you cited funded by the rich?
    Was the Spanish Study large enough to be considered a good enough study to say that vitamin D helps save lives when it comes to covid?

    No, why? There was not enough funding.

    Seriously, it takes huge amounts of money to run large studies. The only people who would put up that kind of money are rich people who stand to make money if the study comes out right for them.

    So you are stuck believing studies funded by people who benefit from the outcome of the study. That is your science.

    There has been some major studies on this, but unfortunately not yet any with randomized controls that would settle the issue once and for all. In the mean time we cannot rationally conclude vit D significantly helps with covid outcomes.
    lol

    GOP slogans-

    Liberals don't work, want free stuff, hate America, hate the military, hate white people, are soft on crime, soft on terror, want open borders, are Socialist, Marxist freeloaders who lay around all day taking drugs, collecting welfare, - - while, hard working, white GOD fearing, Christian Conservatives not only carry the load for these freeloading Socialist Lib ...[text shortened]... regional party dominated by southern white men....

    Those are the facts Jack - Just the facts! ๐Ÿ˜
    All those things are true, people just do not mind it anymore, at least for this election. At least the people counting the votes.

    I wonder if you will live long enough to see the next time a Republican gets in and you need to change your tune.
