Op-Ed by Daniel Bobinski
If you take a good look at the CDC’s flu numbers for the past 13 months, you'll notice there’s a precipitous drop in flu cases that occurred about the same time the United States started getting hit with Covid-19 infections.
Now, look at the number of pediatric flu deaths over the past four flu seasons. By this time of year, we should be seeing a few numbers on the chart for this current flu season, but we’re not.
Also, keep in mind that an analysis by a Johns Hopkins student of the total number of deaths by age bracket over the past year shows no spikes in any age group.
If it looks fishy and smells fishy, it’s fishy.
But while the country is under the massive illusion that Joe Biden actually received 80,000,000 votes and citizens are doing work the FBI and DOJ are supposed to be doing in battling election fraud, Covid-mania rages on. The fearmongering has not let up. In fact, it’s intensified.
Health care systems are saying their hospitals are overrun with Covid-19 patients, so lockdowns and mask mandates are all the rage. I’d feel sorry for these hospitals, but every emergency room doctor I’ve interviewed tells me hospitals fill up every flu season.
I certainly have empathy for those who are sick, but I’m more outraged at the medical community because they fail to tell people what they can do to reduce their likelihood of getting any kind of cold, flu, or pneumonia.
Of course, some will say, “But wait, Daniel—yes they are! They tell you to wear a mask and stay six feet apart!”
Uh-huh. And here’s a Band-Aid for that sucking chest wound.
I’ll present some interesting findings about Covid patients in a minute, but first, somebody please explain how the human race survived all these millennia without buying or making face masks and barking at people who invade their 6-foot bubble. I’m not sure which is the bigger scam—the media telling us Joe Biden is President-Elect when he hasn’t achieved 270 electoral votes, or the medical industrial complex and its government bulldogs insisting we need a vaccine and that masks actually prevent viral transfer. A meta-analysis shows masks are statistically insignificant for viral transfer, and according to a 2015 study (prior to masks being a tool to leverage political power), masks were found to increase the likelihood of infections. But I digress.
Criminal behavior of the medical community?
In my opinion, what the CDC, the World Health Organization, and thousands of health care practitioners are doing is unethical, immoral and criminal.
Let me explain. This past year I lost a good friend to stomach cancer. It wasn’t discovered until it was stage 4. Doctors said if they’d caught it earlier, they probably could have saved her life.
Compare that to the CDC’s and WHO’s recommendation for Covid-19: Go home and wait it out. If you end up having difficulty breathing, then come back to the hospital.
It’s the equivalent of saying, “We’ve identified that you have stage 1 stomach cancer. Go home and wait until you have trouble keeping food down and you have stage 4. Then come back and we’ll see what we can do.”
It’s asinine, but that is the equivalent of what the medical community is doing, and like I said, I think it’s criminal.
What if I told you that studies show patients with adequate levels of vitamin D are less likely to contract the infection? And, what if I told you those same studies show that if a person does contract the infection but he/she has adequate levels of Vitamin D, that person is less likely to have severe symptoms? And that adequate levels of Vitamin D also reduce the likelihood of death?
And what if I told you we have proof that Dr. Anthony Fauci takes Vitamin D daily? And that he takes a lot of it?
If you’re like most people in the world, I imagine you’d be asking, “Why isn’t the good doctor sharing this information?” Inquiring minds want to know.
Vitamin D and Covid
Before I go on, I’m apparently obligated to bow to the church of the FDA, specifically their Code of Federal Regulations Title 21, and state, “These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products (or statements) are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.”
I am also obligated to tell you that the “FDA reminds consumers that they should always discuss with their doctors any plans to take any dietary supplement product before they do so."
I’m also under personal obligation to tell you that there’s a revolving door between the offices of the FDA and Big Pharma. I’ll let you, the reader, draw your own conclusions as to what THAT means.
Because their standard recommendation is, “Go home, take Tylenol, and if you find you’re having trouble breathing, then come back,” the medical industrial complex is not operating in the public’s best interest. In my opinion, this is medical malpractice, because they remain either willfully or unintentionally ignorant about advising their patients to get their immune systems healthy.
In other words, I believe they are LETTING people die when people don’t have to die.
First of all, per the CDC’s own numbers, anyone under the age of 20 who contracts Covid-19 has a better chance of getting struck by lightning than they do of dying from Covid. So young people who have no serious comorbidities are not the problem. The problem lies in our older population groups, and specifically older people who have weak immune systems.
Analysis of Covid-19 deaths by Dr. Eric Berg (see his video) shows a significant increase in the likelihood of death in older people if they have unhealthy immune systems. His numbers for the age 75+ group show the following for people who actually contract Covid-19:
With a healthy immune system, the survival rate is 99.6226 percent or a 0.3774 percent chance of death.
With a weak immune system, the survival rate is 98.9697 percent or a 1.0303 percent chance of death.
A weak-immune system 98.9697 percent survival rate is not bad, but I think my 89-year old father would prefer the 99.6226 percent odds better. Of course, people will argue Dr. Berg’s numbers (I expect that), but what I want people to realize is the CDC isn’t drawing attention to the differences in death counts between Covid-19 patients who have healthy immune systems vs. those with weak immune systems.
So how to boost one’s immune system? Lots of ways exist, but Dr. John Campbell has published a significant number of videos examining Vitamin D and its impact on the immune system, with an emphasis on how Vitamin D impacts a person who catches Covid-19.
Dr. Campbell points out that Vitamin D plays an essential role in immunomodulation, for both the innate and the adaptive immune systems. He says it, “Enhances innate immunity, immune peptides, and anti-viral effects, disrupting viral envelopes.”
And perhaps you’ve heard about the “cytokine storm,” the trigger for lungs filling up with fluid and making it difficult for Covid patients to breathe. Campbell says Vitamin D “suppresses the excessive expression of proinflammatory cytokines.”
In his many videos about Vitamin D, Dr. Campbell wonders aloud why the CDC and the World Health Organizatin (WHO) are not touting its value. He says, “There is increasing evidence that having good levels of Vitamin D reduces the incidents—the number of new cases of Covid-19, how sick those people are, and how likely they are to die.”
Interestingly, Campbell also points out that, “Low levels of Vitamin D are also associated with high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disease.” He says, “If people had good levels of Vitamin D, perhaps there would be less of these.” He goes on to say that these conditions are comorbidities associated with an increased likelihood of death when one has Covid-19.
Randomized Clinical Study on Vitamin D
Among the many research papers, Campbell cites showing that Vitamin D is significantly beneficial in combating Covid-19, is a study called “Vitamin D Reduces Risk of ICU Admission 97 percent.” The study occurred at a university hospital in Cordoba, Spain with 50 patients in the “intervention” group, and 26 in the “control” group (no intervention).
Intervention group patients (those with Covid-19 receiving the Vitamin D) received the equivalent of 30,000 international units (IU) per day for the first week, and 7,600 IU per day thereafter. The control group received no Vitamin D (calcifediol).
As the study itself says, “The results were astounding (and highly statistically significant).”
- Of the 50 patients in the study group, only one (2 percent of the group) required admission to the ICU, and nobody died.
- Of the 26 control group patients who did not receive Vitamin D, 13 of them (50 percent of the group) required admission to ICU, and two of them died.
This is just one of the many Vitamin D studies cited by Dr. Campbell, and he is correct to wonder why the CDC or the WHO is ignoring this information.
Anthony Fauci’s Vitamin D intake
Dr. Campbell was curious to know if the good Dr. Fauci was taking Vitamin D, and if so, how much?
After connecting with an acquaintance who knows Anthony Fauci, Dr. Campbell learned that the man who says we all need to wear masks (after he first said that masks were totally useless) takes 6,000 IU of Vitamin D every day.
6,000 IU of Vitamin D every day.
Yet Fauci says nothing about Vitamin D from his pulpit.
And neither do so many doctors afraid to lose their medical licenses for not following the CDC “guidelines.” Or lack thereof.
As I mentioned previously, I’m not sure which is the larger scam: The media proclaiming Joe Biden to be President-Elect without him having 270 electoral votes, or the medical industrial complex saying we need a vaccine and masks to keep people from dying from Covid-19.
I, for one, have adopted Fauci’s personal practice and now take at least 6,000 IU of Vitamin D daily. Because it’s a fat-soluble vitamin, I always take it with a meal that has fats. I also have an additional set of supplements that I take whenever I sense a cold or “whatever” coming on, which can you learn about from my podcast on the subject.
But Campbell’s question remains quite valid, and everyone needs to be asking it. “Why won’t the CDC or the WHO conduct and publish research on Vitamin D and Covid-19?”
Perhaps they’d rather collect profits from a vaccine? No—that can’t be. That would be medical malpractice. They’d never put profits above patient health.
