@BillyBob You and I both spent our careers working in healthcare and both of us understanding the scientific method. You write that the vaccines were rushed. What to you would constitute scientific proof that the three current vaccines against Covid-19 are safe and effective? Also, please clarify for me your position on "various substances that could have saved many lives". Are you saying that these are superior to the vaccines for preventing Covid-19 infection and its health consequences? Are you saying that both the "various substances" and the vaccines are the best defense against Covid19?
My position is that the vaccines are the best defense against Covid. I do many things that a person wanting to stay healthy does: exercise, eat healthy food, take 2,000 units of Vitamin D because I live in a northern latitude, don't smoke, etcetera. That to me does not constitute an effective defense against Covid, although it may decrease my odds of dying from Covid. And I have read nothing that convinces me that the "various substances" you write of have a significant effect on Covid infection outcomes.
Tim, perhaps you have forgotten the many, many studies I have linked to early in the pandemic like: Study done at Tulane early in the pandemic, when they put my "bet" to the test, and they decided to check vitamin D levels of the patients in the hospital with Covid. The less sick they were, the less likely they were to be deficient in D. If they were sick enough to bein ICU with Covid, a very high % were deficient in D. But if they were UNDER AGE 75 and also in ICU with Covid, 100% were deficient in D. ONE HUNDRED %. Or how about
when the hospital in Barcelona decided to check the vitamin C levels of the 18 Covid ICU patients? One of 18 is about
1/2 of whatever is considered the minimum blood level fro vitamin C, the other 17 are UNDETECTABLE for vitamin C. Etc, Etc, ad infinitum. Then there was the hospital in Spain(linked to here somewhere in the past) where they gave a metabolite for D(worked faster) to their hospitalized patients and slashed mortality. Then there are the HIGHLY CREDENTIALED MDs with the FLCCC who first included IV C(along with D and zinc etc) and later IVM in their treatment, and have about
a 5% mortality among their Covid ICU patients compared to 15-32% for competing hospitals. Again, on and on, ad infinitum. All linked to here is the past, and I COULD go on, but I'm sure I am about
to be accused of "strangling" rather than "caressing", so I won't go on.
But surely you have already read about
ALL of that? And yet, you say "I have read nothing that convinces me that the "various substances" you write of have a significant effect on Covid infection outcomes."? Well, I can't understand that, and there is nothing more I can say, and we will just have to agree to disagree. And maybe you are right. But I am still willing to bet $ that only a tiny %- IF ANY AT ALL- of patients in ICU dying of Covid have high blood levels of D, C and zinc- or maybe we should include IVM. And even more importantly, they had high levels BEFORE they ever got that sick, and the levels were maintained AFTER they were infected. If you have any evidence to the contrary, I would love to see it, and I will definitely take it into consideration. I don't think I have seen any evidence to the contrary yet. But, again, Tim, you might be right and I might be wrong. I appreciate your opinions, Brother!
