D3 and Swine Flu: Proof Of Benefits From US Medical Centre And Testimony Of The Dangers of Vaccination

September 21st, 2009 No comments

I am not a doctor but these people are:

Dear Dr. Cannell:

Your recent newsletters and video about Swine flu (H1N1)
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=swine+flu+and+vitamin+D+and+Council&btnG=Search&aq=f&oq=&aqi=

prompted me to convey our recent experience with an H1N1 outbreak at Central Wisconsin Center (CWC). Unfortunately, the state epidemiologist was not interested in studying it further so I pass it on to you since I think it is noteworthy.

CWC is a long-term care facility for people with developmental disabilities, home for approx. 275 people with approx. 800 staff. Serum 25-OHD has been monitored in virtually all residents for several years and patients supplemented with vitamin D.

In June, 2009, at the time of the well-publicized Wisconsin spike in H1N1 cases, two residents developed influenza-like illness (ILI) and had positive tests for H1N1: one was a long-term resident; the other, a child, was transferred to us with what was later proven to be H1N1.

On the other hand, 60 staff members developed ILI or were documented to have H1N1: of 17 tested for ILI, eight were positive. An additional 43 staff members called in sick with ILI. (Approx. 11-12 staff developed ILI after working on the unit where the child was given care, several of whom had positive H1N1 tests.)

So, it is rather remarkable that only two residents of 275 developed ILI, one of which did not develop it here, while 103 of 800 staff members had ILI. It appears that the spread of H1N1 was not from staff-to-resident but from resident-to-staff (most obvious in the imported case) and between staff, implying that staff were susceptible and our residents protected.

Sincerely,

Analysis from Dr Cannell:

Dear Dr. Glick:

This is the first hard data that I am aware of concerning H1N1 and vitamin D. It appears vitamin D is incredibly protective against H1N1. Dr. Carlos Carmago at Mass General ran the numbers in an email to me. Even if one excludes 43 staff members who called in sick with influenza, 0.73% of residents were affected, as compared to 7.5% of staff. This 10-fold difference was statistically significant (P<0.001). That is, the chance that this was a chance occurrence is one less than one in a thousand.

Second, if you read my last newsletter……………
http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/releases.shtml

you will see that children with neurological impairments, like the patients at your hospital, have accounted for 2/3 of the childhood deaths for H1N1 so far in the USA. That is, the CDC knows, because they reported it, that patients with neurological impairments are more likely to die from H1N1.

The problem is that I cannot get anyone in authority at the CDC or the NIH to listen. I need readers to email or call their senators and congresspersons in Washington.

Ask your senator or congressperson to contact the CDC and NIH to complain about CDC and NIH inaction on Vitamin D and H1N1. Also, ask your senators and representative to demand congressional hearings on Vitamin D and H1N1, before it is too late. Here is the link below, just click it and follow instructions to contact your own representatives.

I wonder why Dr Cannell can get no one to listen? Is this why:

See this also:

Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg is a politician and a specialist in lungs, hygiene and environmental medicine. He is the chairman of the health committee in the German parliament and European Council.

Lung specialist Wolfgang Wodarg has said that there are many risks associated with the vaccine for the H1N1 virus.

He has grave reservations about the firm Novartis who are developing the vaccine and testing it in Germany. The vaccination is injected “with a very hot needle”, Wodarg said.

The nutrient solution for the vaccine consists of cancerous cells from animals and “we do not know if there could be an allergic reaction”. But more importantly, some people fear that the risk of cancer could be increased by injecting the cells.

The vaccine – as Johannes Löwer, president of the Paul Ehrlich Institute, has pointed out – can also cause worse side effects than the actual swine flu virus.

Wodarg also described people’s fear of the pandemic as an “orchestration”: “It is great business for the pharmaceutical industry,” he told the ‘Neuen Presse’.*

Swine flu is not very different from normal flu. “On the contrary if you look at the number of cases it is nothing compared to a normal flu outbreak,” he added.

Vitamin D3 and Flu Including “Swine Flu”.

September 15th, 2009 No comments

2 – 5,000 U.I Vitamin D3 per day depending on factors such as size, diet, sun exposure, lattitude, etc. will provide better protection to you against the flu of all varieties than antivirals or vaccine laced with mercury preservative. Washing your hands and face is also important when you come in from the outside.

See this post for more information.

Also this:

Dr. Cannell: Thanks for your update about the hospital in Wisconsin. I have had similar anecdotal evidence from my medical practice here in Georgia. We are one of the 5 states with widespread H1N1 outbreaks.

I share an office with another family physician. I aggressively measure and replete vitamin D. He does not. He is seeing one to 10 cases per week of influenza-like illness.

In my practice— I have had zero cases. My patients are universally on 2000–5000 IU to maintain serum levels 50–80 ng/ml. Ellie Campbell, DO Campbell Family Medicine 3925 Johns Creek Court Ste A Suwannee GA 30024

Vitamin D3, Flu, Cancer, Colds, Asthma, Crohns, Heart Disease and Diabetes. Oh .. and Depression and Schizophrenia and Many More.

August 26th, 2009 No comments

Yes it’s true Vitamin D3 taken in doses of 2 -4 thousand U.I / day for an adult will help in all the above. If you don’t live on a beach at the equator you can probably benefit from supplementing your diet with 2,000 U.I of cheap Vitamin D3 pills a day. (50 Ug) – A note – add Omega 3 supplement when taking D3 as the two work together.

In the summer we get more sun and more “Vitamin” D3 (actually it is a steroidal hormone). D3 turns genes on and off throughout the body in multiple systems. We suffer a chronic and endemic shortage in western societies as lifestyle has reduced sun exposure to a bare minimum. In the winter few get enough sun for the job of producing D3. Supplementing is essential for good health. Cancer rates are affected by up to 50% as D3 turns off the rogue genes – in fact the genes may never have been rogue – D3 shortage could be the trigger for most cancers.

Seasonal Affective Disorder or “S.A.D” is due to D3 shortage as winter sun does not provide enough UVb rays to produce healthy immune system responses and our mammalian bodies go into hibernation dragging our minds down.In depression generally there is a link to low D3 and this may be a cycle as depressed persons can stay inside avoiding company, movement and light. A D3 supplement may be more effective, is definitely less toxic and will act more reliably than Prozac or the other anti depression drugs pedalled to us.

T cell production is regulated by D3 as is all cell growth. In addition D3 is the essential precursor to antimicrobial peptides – natural antibiotics produced in the body which attack viruses, bacteria and fungal infections.

So the immune response is critically dependent on D3 curing and preventing influenza (flu – including “Swine Flu”) and colds. These are just as commonly in the environment in the summer yet we have the ability to resist – as our D3 levels are more natural (higher).So in winter especially take D3.

D3 is more important than calcium for women at risk of osteoporosis. As these women are also at an age when many cancers appear they could see the greatest benefits from D3 supplementation. But don’t be put off by that. Your kids need some too in all likelihood – and the standard medical test will not indicate weather that is true or not.

Ask your doctor first if you are worried but their science is wrong, based on measuring Vitamin D starved Northern populations. Canada recommends ALL it’s citizens to take Vitamin D3 supplement 1,000 U.I /day. After watching this you won’t question why:

You won’t get flu or “swine flu” if you take this in all likelihood. If you do up the dose to 5,000 U.I /day and it will kill it in 2 – 3 days maximum.

Some of this is now old news BUT NO ONE KNOWS IT ! Why do the British medical establishment stick at an RDA of 400 U.I when Canada is at 1,000 and researchers leading the field say 2 – 4,000 U.I.

I am telling everyone I know to take 2,000 U.I a day or more if they are large. For anyone pale skinned, depressed, diabetic, lethargic or allergic changed symptomology may be evident within a month to six weeks as the immune and other dependent systems re-regulate themselves – if not sooner.
