Thanks! A really excellent read. I sent it to all my contacts.

I think she’s the same one who wrote recently about neurogenerative disease as possibly caused by the jabs.

Thanks for bringing the Vitamin D range of 40ng/ - 60ng/ml to the forefront. I first read about it at Lew Rockwell: https://www.lewrockwell.com/2021/10/joseph-mercola/dr-mercolas-2021-biohacking-lecture/. I wish the Baggerlys had been credited for picking up the FDA error in that article, which includes the following link to GrassrootsHealth, where you can get a test for your Vitamin D levels: https://www.grassrootshealth.net/. There is also a Vitamin D calculator at that website.

Another Lew Rockwell article on Vitamin D, with many links: https://www.lewrockwell.com/2021/11/bill-sardi/the-promise-perils-of-vitamin-d/

*Apparent 😬

Happens even to the correctors! It's all about editing! Read before you post! 😊

To be honest this particular post from James is riddled with typos, double wording & mishaps. James, do you need an editor??

I thank you for the article and appreciate that we often can't see our own typos well.

Since I wanted to share, I wanted to get them cleaned up so the article would be perfect.

Please delete this thread to keep the comment section focused on the article's content, rather than the now-corrected typos.

James, typos not errors of fact or data. Sometimes, it's important just to get the message out there. Thank you for acknowledging the glitches in expression, and making the timely corrections.

The Canadian government is actually calling Vitamin D for Covid "Fake News", as I report in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFORnzTmhEw&t=7s

'This website includes a compendium of studies on the effects of Vitamin sufficiency on scores of medical conditions, notably cancer'

FFS James do you have any idea how much money there is in chemotherapy etc?

Do you have any idea how much profit you are putting at risk?

In fact, this is a great reason to make the FDA re-address this issue. And yes, in fact, I do. I worked at UPCI (University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute) a while back.

This British man and his partner have been put in prison (repeatedly) for curing cancer.

Despite having an incredible success rate at curing those sent home to die by conventional medicine they needed to be locked up because their cure was far too cheap, naturally occurring and wasn't controlled by pharma.

Thank you! Very interesting and informative as well as frightening.

The case is a good illustration of how corrupt the health regulatory systems are, these agencies are captured and will merrily sentence people to death in order to protect pharma's profits.

Can somebody provide him help to get his product to a more favourable market?

Various countries in Europe are taking it in turns to put him in prison so he is focused on avoiding that fate. Those in power are very experienced at destroying people that threaten their profits.

Surely there is a South American or Eurasian state that would provide a safer favourable market?

What if the seasonality of flus etc is from winter causing lower levels of already low vitamin D levels?

I heard there's a mystery why seasonality doesn't happen around the equator, it makes me doubt the contagious theory of these diseases.

Time to replace the FDA with something credible. I discovered around 2004 that people exposed to toxic mold (me) had low levels of vitamin D. Thanks for the connection with cancer. I just published this piece in which I recommend free massive testing for Vitamin D levels in pop-up clinics and everywhere. Natural Immunity Pass: NIP Covid in the Butt

Hi Diane, is there any chance you have written a substack about Mold exposure and Vit D levels? I know someone who has cystic fybrosis (and thus chronic low Vit D) who was exposed to mold and developed pretty strong EMF sensitivity. I am always on the lookout for info for her. Thank you!

I have not written abut that but you can search, here are some things I found on my computer - Mold and Mycotoxins:

My MD who is also a naturopath says min 10000 IU and safe up to 20 to 30 k and even higher short term. But best to get level checked first.

Dr Alex Vasquez, DO ND DC is THE goto doc for Vitamin-D information (imho). Vitamin D research and clinical application is one of his many specialties. And fair warning, he is prolific and direct in his review and analysis of supplementation research. Start here to dip your toe in: https://www.inflammationmastery.com/d

Medscape promotes the vitamin D toxicity absurdity, "One case report published online in 2019 found that very high doses of vitamin D [10,000 IU daily] caused kidney damage in a person who wasn't deficient in the vitamin."

https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/946314#vp_3

The Medscape article links to a 2019 article that echoes the claim about 10,000 units daily being toxic, which 2019 article relies upon a 2007 article about vitamin D toxicity.

However, there is a more recent article that effectively abolishes the 10,000 unit claim and sets the limit at 60,000 units daily for months.

Bear in mind that the human body will produce 20,000 units of vitamin D in one solar exposure, so the 10,000 unit claim should have been recognized as absurd from the get go.

Dr. Lee Merritt says she takes 10.000 units daily, and she seems to be doing fine.

I and two over-90 year old parents are using 10,000 IU’s since May 2020. Under MD direction. No issues. He, MD, states up to 100,000 is fine but stated over 50,000 is only for short term use in event of actual covid or flu. Every time I inquire he is fine with 20,000. But he seemed to be a proponent of testing before high dose to see if its really needed.

The FDA & the WHO have the best professionals money can buy. Use their standards at your peril.

It's looks as if they are missing "0s" at the end of their recommended dosages. Maybe it should read 4000IU-6000IU. It needs to be corrected and updated to include the upper safe level.

- It's all correlation, not causation.

- Disease generally causes low D, not the other way around.

- Covid may even acutely plummet D.

- Recent reviews question if there is even an association between D levels and covid outcomes. - - The only positive RCT data I am aware for covid used 25D, not D3 supplements.

- The conversions from D3 to 25D starts immediately, but takes a week to finish. D3 supplements may not covert fast enough to make a difference in acute treatment.

- UVB exposure is associated with covid risk.

- The lumisterols are the forms of D that have the most potent anti-covid acvitivty.

- Lumisterols can ONLY be made from sun and NOT from the supplement D3 pathways.

- 95% of RCTs of D3 have failed across all indications.

- D3 pills can fuel ectopic 1,25D production caused by numerous chronic infections. Makes people sicker. Sadly, I know that first hand.

Take off your clothes and get the sun folks.

Nontoxic early treatment was always the way to go with covid. D3 however is not the right tree to bark up. Quercentin phytosome, the combination of blackseed oil and honey, curcumin, and melatonin have all had highly impressive recent results, cutting mortality by 60 to 90%. 10mg of melatonin was apparently 90% effective at preventing death in severe covid cases, as an addon to standard treatment in a study in Iraq.

Dr. Seheult is a great promoter of vit. D, but he is not a one-trick pony. You might find his conversation with Dr. Berg of some interest: https://ketocourse.com/vitamin-d-and-covid-19-dr-berg-interviews-dr-seheult-on-treatment-and-prevention/

Blackseed oil gets mentioned; so does melatonin and the Iraqi study, plus the benefits of sunlight and IR radiation.

The mechanism of getting symptoms if you have chronic infection and take D is not totally clear to me, but it's definitely a thing. Marshall Pathogenesis has some explanation of it.
