  2. Re: Alert But Not Alarmed: New h1in1 Swine Flu Found In China

  8. Re: How The Coronavirus Shortcircuits The Immune System

    This is one of the best explanations I've read about why children experience less severe COVID-19 infections. It's all about the thymus gland. My research shows that berries, cruciferous veggies,...
  9. Re: Coronavirus May Be a Blood Vessel Disease, Which Explains Everything

  15. Re: Multi Ethnic Study Suggests That Vitamin K May Offer Health Benefits In Older Age

    The thing is....if you supplement with extra vitamin D3, then you need more K2. Based on my research, no firm ratios of K2 to D3 have been established. However, it looks like for every 1,000 IUs of...

  21. Re: Smothering the Fire: How Vitamin C Can Stop Viral Infections Quickly

    Pattypan: Yes, adding a little sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to ascorbic acid will produce sodium ascorbate. Grulla, I forgot about Capt. Randall, a fervent advocate of sodium ascorbate.
