This is a really limited message today, which is to obtain and take 5000 International Units of vitamin D per day until you croak from old age. This is a simple and obvious public health measure, which you can do, yourself, and you can give "cheap and safe" vitamin-D tablets or gelcaps to people you would like to help.
I'm trying to buy 5000 doses of 5000 units today. The online interface says I'm doing it, but I have my doubts.
I have gone through several rounds of buying vitamin-D bottles and giving them to people for themselves and their families in the past 3 months. This time is bigger. I really feel that this is a moment of crisis, where power factions are at each other's throats, and with no common ground for repair.
Vitamin-D for everybody can be that common ground.
Let's say it reduces morbidity and mortality by 50%.
That's what is speculated here, but I think it would do better than that.
Let's do the experiment!
10,000 IU/day"for a few weeks", followed by 5000 IU/day thereafter is what they recommend, and it is exactly what I have recommended since early February, except I would say "a few" is 8 weeks.
