Vitamin D – The lowest hanging fruit for Covid-era health, rarely picked

Hello Dear Reader,

We’ve been back for three weeks now and we are pleased to present our third video in this weekly Covid series, once again drawing on the vast medical commons that is so rich online. The first video uncovered conflict of interest in media reporting. The second drew on scientists with alternative analysis to what’s reported in the corporatised media. Now we are excited to share this third story with you as we believe it is essential information to hold in our community Covid toolkits. In this video (11 mins) we take a look at the overwhelming scientific literature pointing towards the importance of vitamin D in the unfolding Covid story, and the conspicuous absence of government health advice about vitamin D deficiency and its ‘predictor’ relationship to Covid-19 morbidity and mortality.

Well, we hope you enjoyed this video as much as we did making it. Please find below the articles we drew upon to make this video and please let us know what you think in the comments.
