First, I'd like to apologize for the sparse posting this week and the same in advance for the rest of the week. Well, I just wrote a comment on an iSteve thread that was to be a quick anecdotal post here, OK, still will, and there's a Kung Flu anecdotal one ready to go. There was Spring Break for the kids this week, and the next 3 or 4 days will be busy with work stuff.
I'll just put this video about Vitamin D in relation to the Kung Flu here for tonight. I asked Mr. Hail of the Hail to You blog for his opinion here, under his most recent post.
See what you think of this 28 minute talk by Dr. Ryan Cole. He's a doctor. ("Yeah, but so was Doctor Fauci too, at some point in his life, before he worked as a US Feral Gov't bureaucrat for going on 4 decades.")
Just anecdotally, back when the government schools were in complete “what to do? what to do?” mode in late March and April of last year, we were out at the park in the sunshine a lot – 2 hour recesses from my homeschooling were the norm. I imagine that was pretty good for us, in addition to the lowered stress levels due to not being completely fucking hysterical.
OTOH, at the time, the wife’s state of freak-out was stressful. She got better (said in the manner of the Witch-accuser played by John Cleese in Monty Python and the Holy Grail: “She turned me into a newt!” “A newt?” [5 seconds of silence] “I got better …”)
The milk has been fortified with Vitamin D since before I was a kid. Do kids drink as much milk anymore? I don’t think they do. Of course, kids haven’t had any problem with the Kung Flu anyway. For adults, as Dieter Kief noted in a comment on Mr. Hail's blog, maybe supplements somehow don’t do the same for our bodies as getting it through our skin and the sunshine does.
Also, in that thread on "Hail to You", Mr. Hail made a good point about the Africans – in Africa vs. in Europe. They seem to be doing much better against this virus in their homelands than in the gloomy northlands of Scandinavia. (WTF they are doing there to begin with is another story – send them back! COVID-19! COVID-19! Save the Africans!)
Next time, we'll discuss "Kung Flu at the Zoo".
