Sadly given our economy is likely stuffed(and therefore tax income) for many years to come, the NHS is utterly b*****d. I'm 100% not anti-vax, 100% aware that covid 19 is a very nasty disease.....however the lack of debate about the effects of lockdown on 'controlling' covid 19 is shocking. equally so the lack of questioning on the stats we are being presented with. The science on Vit D is well known. The UK is well north of the latitude where UV B restricts Vit D in the winter months. The science on obesity and lack of Vit D is well known. We live in an obese society. The science on natural Vit D production of people with darker skin being lower is well known. So why has the impact on the BAME population come as a surprise? The science on reduced Vit D production in the elderly is also well known. We live in an ageing society and it is mainly the elderly who have died. Do I think mass Vit D supplements would have solved the problem? No, but I'm pretty sure it would have helped.
