across the front page of USA Today, just underneath a subhead
declaring Michael Jackson was, indeed, killed by a drug overdose:
"Flu could infect half of USA." The article goes on to
describe the predicted number of deaths expected in the U.S. (30,000–90,000
Americans) as well as the actions being taken by the government
to protect Americans from the coming swine flu pandemic.
reads sort of like a comic book of health care advice for kindergarteners:
Wash your hands, cover your mouth if you cough and let "the
grownups" take care of the rest by injecting you with a vaccine.
Curiously absent from all the health
advice being handed out on the swine
flu by the White House, the CDC,
the WHO and even the FDA is any mention of Vitamin
D or other natural remedies that offer enormous protections
from influenza infections.
of this information from virtually all the advice being handed out
to the American public is increasingly suspicious. If a pandemic
flu is, indeed, threatening to infect half the U.S. population,
and if most of the population is deficient in a nutrient known to
strongly prevent influenza
infections, wouldn’t it make good sense to make a few announcements
encouraging Americans to raise their vitamin D levels throughout
the coming winter?
It is a well-known
medical fact, of course, that influenza always gets worse during
the winter months North of the equator and the summer months South
of the equator (which are really called their “winter” months).
This is because as sunlight hours lessen during the winter, the
people living there become vitamin D deficient and are susceptible
to influenza infections of all kinds.
