Vitamin D Lowers Dementia Risk by 40%
Canadian Study Establishes D's Critical Place in Human Health vs AD
Covid’s Ugly Duckling is Now a Beautiful Swan
The most egregious error committed during Canada’s Covid-19 2020 emergency occurred in elder care homes across the nation. The older residents were dying in clusters, and clearly the support staff travelling from one facility to another were bringing infection with them. The obvious response was to isolate all players from each other - from this URI (Upper Respiratory Infection). And so this was done, enforced by national mandates for masking and lockdowns that soon involved the entire population, including travelers entering or exiting the country’s borders.
As later studies would show, the masking and lockdowns didn’t contain this human-made virus, now shown to have escaped from a poorly secured Wuhan laboratory. Worse - this Covid virus had been engineered to be more infectious than those found in the wild. The wily Dr. Fauci knew all about this in Oct 2019, but clearly he had to find a narrative that not only concealed that fact - if only briefly - and hopefully a quick fix via a novel mRNA ‘vaccine’. This way the ‘China virus’ disaster could be morphed into a gigantic Big Pharma bonanza, instead of suffering the ignominy it deserved. Like the FTX crypto disaster - which would likely have passed unnoticed had a crypto winter not intruded - the center could not hold when the vaccines - quickly announced and cobbled together - proved to be dangerous and leaky, resulting in progressively infectious variants. These ‘vaccines’ may yet prove to be more persistent and deadly than Covid-19 itself - what a tangled web they may yet weave!
Return with me now to your own grade 8 science classes - you may recall learning that after a century of battling tuberculosis in sanitoriums, the only effective treatment for TB before antibiotics was exposure to the sun. Vitamin D was discovered in 1920, and its relationship to sunlight was discovered shortly thereafter. Vitamin D is synthesized in the skin when exposed to sunlight, although supplementation by synthesized D3 (calciferol) is effective. Synthesized in 1936, D helps the body absorb calcium and phosphate from food, which is important for bone and muscle strength. It also plays a role in immune function and may have other health benefits, such as helping to prevent inflammatory diseases. Recent studies have shown that doses of 20,000 IUs of Vitamin D3 per day are tolerable in adults with no signs of toxicity .
One problem Dr. Fauci had to face was the fact that An Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) cannot be obtained if there is a drug or therapy that already works. In the early days of Covid, hydroxychloroquine was on the formulary as a treatment. As soon as the vaccines reached a point in their development at which an EUA could be applied for, hydroxychloroquine was removed. And Dr. Fauci et al began badmouthing it.
Yet the same is true of vitamin D - if not more so - because it forms the basis of our innate immune system. Especially for a URI, it is D that decides whether to attack it, and how hard. If you are deficient in D this decision can waver between an over-reaction (inflammation) or disinterest (progressive infection).
Recent epidemiological evidence suggests that there is a significant association between vitamin D deficiency and an increased incidence, or aggravation, of infectious diseases and inflammatory autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus, and multiple sclerosis . In addition, research has shown that vitamin D can fully interact with the immune system to reduce inflammation.
A Lettre de Cachet from the Public Health Officer
So nobody in their right mind, least of all an epidemiologist, is going to conceal or forbid our principal immunomodulator from going to work against its specialty - URI’s. But they did.
The New York Times and respected science writer Ed Yong asserted that if people of color were deficient in D, it was because they lived in ‘diet deserts’ too far from proper supermarkets. It is plain to everyone that colored people have an optical issue with skin pigmentation, to process sunshine through their skin. But ‘woke’ folks don’t mention such indelicate truths, even if millions of people might appreciate a ‘heads up’ and the option of their own decision.
Stick with the program was the only message. In the meantime, vitamin D must not be mentioned, because it ‘needs more research’.
Big Food & Pharma as their own Diseases of Civilization
Regardless of the nomenclature, type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s (sometimes called type 3 diabetes) have become escalating epidemics in every sense of the word. Both reflect a flooding of the historical human diet by carbohydrates, especially grains and sugar.
For the first 99% of human existence our diet has been based on animal sources, and will remain so for the foreseeable future. Evolution does not move camp overnight, and it will be far wiser to restore our grasslands, soils and water tables while moderating our population, than to convert to factory food and chemical controls. This is an issue - like our skin pigmentation - to take note of personally, and then act under one’s own auspices. It is certainly not appropriate to assign all authority to organizations like the WEF, who advocate for seed oils that require more refinement than synthetic motor oils. And have the same nutritive value, at best.
Issues like omega-6 contamination of our mitochondria are a known contributor to cancer, yet plans are being made to saturate the human diet with soy and canola oil that, with runaway diabetes (and dementia) will overwhelm health care with cruel cancers and a ‘sugar diabetes’ that were rare a century ago, before these ‘diseases of civilization’ became endemic. Human nutrition today is strangely similar to pig farming…
Resolving dietary issues is becoming a major challenge for our own species, as we come to realize that we cannot mass produce whole food, and bypass animal sources with this doomed ignorance of aeons of adaptation, that we have been committed to since the neolithic era. Human biochemistry remains fixed, and to be discovered - not altered or engineered - for the coming centuries. We should respect that in honor of our ancestors - who got us here by the thinnest of margins.
During Covid one such study of vitamin D had been underway for seven years, and is now allowed to present its exciting results - that vitamin D is indeed the bane of Big Pharma, especially toward our desperate attempts to limit skyrocketing dementia - perhaps the meanest disease of all.
From page 1 of the Vitamin D supplementation and incident dementia.
Background (from the PDF):
“Currently, more than 50 million people around the world live with dementia and this number will nearly triple by 2050. At present, there is a dearth of highly effective medication for dementia that can stop or reverse the progression of the disease. Interventions based on modifiable risk factors for dementia have been explored as a potential avenue to slow disease progression. Vitamin D deficiency may be a modifiable risk factor and has been recognized as a widespread health problem, with a worldwide prevalence of up to 1 billion. Vitamin D is known to participate in the clearance of amyloid beta(Aβ) aggregates, one of the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and may provide neuroprotection against Aβ-induced tau hyperphosphorylation. Low levels of serum vitamin D have been associated with a greater risk of dementia and AD.”
With so much emphasis these days on the importance of mental health, it is comforting that the vitamin that dared not speak its name during Covid may save us from blowing our minds.
