Another signatory, Dr David D Grimes – a retired gastroenterologist – said: “Medical research began to reveal the importance of vitamin D in defensive immunity 40 years ago.”
In reference to the coronavirus pandemic, Dr Grimes added: “It’s been a well-established scientific fact for years, so why have we had to watch intensive care units being overwhelmed and more than 60,000 people die?
“We could have protected people and services if we had just rectified well-known deficiencies.”
Concurring with the notion that sufficient vitamin D levels is key in protecting yourself from the deadly coronavirus, MP Davis said: “The evidence from several dozen studies show that vitamin D deficiency is implicated in compromising the body’s immune response to respiratory diseases in general and COVID-19 in particular.”
