News flash! Vitamin D prevents Covid ICU and deaths! Of course, we all knew that as far back as early 2020.

But now there’s a new meta-study that actually shows that, yes, Vitamin D administration does prevent ICU admission and death. It cuts both in half.

I used the word ‘actually’ in the prior sentence because I believe this study tried its hardest not to find a positive Vitamin D effect. It excluded 73 of 78 possible studies and of those selected, only used those where patients were already hospitalized before receiving a Vitamin D intervention/therapy.

I mean, wouldn’t we be even more interested in examining the relationship between Vitamin D blood levels and outcomes? What about Vitamin D administration prior to getting to the hospital? Wouldn‘t that be an even more potent thing to know from a public health perspective?

Of course, the answers to those questions are all ‘yes.’

Regardless of the study’s (intentional) limitations, it still managed to find a significant and strongly positive effect of Vitamin D.

So the next questions are:

  1. Why did it take this long?
  2. Why do the NIH Covid treatment guidelines still have a completely neutral stance on Vitamin D (it’s “neither for nor against.”)?

It’s not a mystery to me. The NIH panel exists within a system where you can get in career-ending hot water if you dare to promote something cheap and off-patent that could cause a pharma company’s profits to suffer.

In other words, everyone on the panel is corrupt and unethical.
