Do You Need a Vitamin D Supplement?
Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA
An astonishing 82% of coronavirus patients were found to have vitamin D deficiency. The infections and the vitamin deficiency were undoubtedly linked. And governments everywhere were responsible.
Locking people indoors massively increases the risk of vitamin D deficiency, and the symptoms and health risks of vitamin D deficiency are massive.
Vitamin D deficiency doesnít just increase the risk of contracting an infection, there is also an increased risk of heart disease, asthma, cancer and dementia. Plus there is evidence that a low vitamin D could result in high blood pressure, diabetes and multiple sclerosis.
Moreover, individuals who have dark skin already have a risk of developing vitamin D deficiency because the presence of so much melanin reduces their skinís ability to make vitamin D when exposed to sunlight. Being shut indoors probably explains why viral infections so heavily promoted in 2020 were commoner among people with dark skins.
Governments should have known all this, of course. And they probably did. But nowhere near enough time was spent telling people to consider taking vitamin D supplements.
Vitamin D is essential (as are all vitamins) and without it our bodies simply do not function effectively and cell regeneration is less efficient. And again, hereís the vital bit, vitamin D is an essential vitamin for preventing infection.
For most people the most important source of vitamin D is sunshine. The lockdowns, which forced millions to stay indoors for much of last summer, almost appear to have been designed to deprive people of vitamin D and to maximise the number of people suffering from viral infections.
Although I and other doctors encouraged people to take vitamin D supplements early on in the lockdowns, these suggestions were dismissed by government spokesmen. Only very belatedly did governments admit that millions should have been taking vitamin D supplements. (Actually, of course, people should have never been put under house arrest in the first place.) All this is yet more evidence that your government is trying to kill you.
You can get some vitamin D from fortified foods but for most people, shut away indoors, the answer is probably taking a vitamin D supplement. But don't take more than the recommended dose. Too much vitamin D can be dangerous.
