    So you think you are the only one who 'has a point' and anyone who disagrees with you hasn't and gives you a thumbs down because you have 'demonstrated' you are right?
    I have news for you; Other people that disagree with you can and sometimes do have a point and they thumb you down because they think you are wrong and often think its YOU who "know nothing on a subject spout off and argue as if they had a point".
    I am saying that my point is correct and your point is wrong and rooted in ignorance.

    "Does vitamin D combat Covid?"

    "Writing in the Lancet in August, he said: “It would seem uncontroversial to
    enthusiastically promote efforts to achieve reference nutrient intakes of vitamin D…
    There is nothing to lose from their implementation, and potentially much to gain.”
    Although extremely large sustained doses of vitamin D can cause toxicity, it is otherwise harmless.

    Dr Aseem Malhotra, a cardiologist and writer, has been disappointed over an absence
    of leadership to ensure people of colour have sufficient levels of the nutrient.
    “Structural racism absolutely has an effect,” he says. “But it should not be at the
    forefront of the conversation. The message should have been: ‘Everyone take
    vitamin D and cut out the junk food.’ I think it’s a no-brainer, because there is no harm from
    vitamin D and it’s cheap. It’s pretty scandalous that this hasn’t been dealt with until now.”

    Davis now believes there will be increasing government focus on immunological health.
    “Covid kills you if you’ve got a weak immune system,” he says. “That’s why vitamin D
    has a much more general purpose effect than, let’s say, vaccines. We’re going to
    win this battle in the long run. I just feel for those who have died unnecessarily.”"

    Here are two interesting stories. Here is quote from the first

    In patients older than 40 years they observed that those patients who were vitamin D sufficient were 51.5 percent less likely to die from the infection compared to patients who were vitamin D deficient or insufficient with a blood level of 25-hydroxyvitamin D less than 30 ng/mL.

    Here is a quote from the second

    According to most standards, sufficient values for vitamin D are between 30 and 60 ng/mL. For those with chronic conditions like diabetes, autoimmune disease, or cancer, it’s not unusual for a provider to target a vitamin D level higher than the typical sufficient range.

    https://www.zrtlab.com/blog/archive/vitamin-d-reference-ranges-optimal/


    The lowest end of sufficient cuts death by 50 percent. Since people die of an autoimmune response, it is only logical to assume that hospitalized patients should be pushed to the higher end of the vitamin d scale to try to save their lives.

    If you get laughed out of a debates forum, what makes you think you will be taken seriously in a science forum ?? 😆

    You mean the debates forum is full of ignorant leftists, so why should the science forum being any different? Maybe you are right.
