In the video by Dr. John Campbell, “Vitamin D, First clinical trial“, below:
On Thursday, September 3, 2020, a study published by JAMA Network Open reported that vitamin D deficiency would increase individuals’ risk for catching COVID-19 by 77%. In this study of 489 patients who had vitamin D level measured in the year before COVID-19 testing, the relative risk of testing positive for COVID-19 was 1.77 times greater for patients with vitamin D deficiency compared with patients without vitamins D deficiency.
Recent studies have found a link between vitamin D and COVID-19, suggesting some people are deficient in the micronutrient and could experience serious health complications. Rachel explains, in the video “How severe COVID-19 cases are connected to vitamin D deficiency“, below:
A University of Liverpool study found that vitamin D deficiency may play a role in increased death rates due to greater chance of such deficiency leading to complications resulting from COVID-19, in the video “Vitamin D Could Be Linked to Coronavirus Survival, Study Says“, below:
Here are the warning signs of vitamin D deficiency most people ignore! Over 40% of American adults, and approximately 1 billion people worldwide are deficient in vitamin D. That’s a lot of people walking around lacking in this vital nutrient. As you may already know, lack of vitamins or a vitamin deficiency can cause serious health consequences if not addressed. Because low vitamin D levels are affecting so many people across the globe, it’s important to learn the signs and symptoms of vitamin D deficiency. Since vitamin D has receptors throughout the body, it’s imperative that you get adequate amounts in order to stay healthy. If you suspect that you may need more vitamin D based on this list, it’s best to talk to your doctor and get your blood levels checked. The good news is that a deficiency of vitamin D is easy to fix if your levels are lower than adequate. You can either you get more sunlight, consume more foods high in Vitamin D, or take a supplement, in the video “14 Signs Of Vitamin D Deficiency“, below
I am a mother/wife/daughter, math professor, solar advocate, world traveler, yogi, artist, photographer, sharer of knowledge/information, and resident of Windermere, FL. I've worked professionally in applied math, engineering, medical research, and as a university math professor in IL and FL for about 20 years. My husband and I loved Disney and moved down to Central Florida initially as snowbirds. But we've come to love the warmth and friendly people offered by this community and decided to move down to Windermere, FL full time in 2006. I am now spending time sharing information/ knowledge online, promoting understanding of math and solar energy (via http://www.sunisthefuture.net ), and developing Windermere Sun (http://www.WindermereSun.com) as an online publication, sharing and promoting Community ABC's (Activities-Businesses-Collaborations) for healthier/happier/more sustainable living. In the following posts, I'll be sharing with you some of the reasons why Windermere has attracted us to become full-time residents of Central Florida region.
