This video has been viewed over 3.5 million times since it was released on Dec 10, 2020

Lifesite News recently reported on a viral interview with Professor Roger Seheult, from California’s Loma Linda University School of Medicine, who spoke of several studies revealing how low levels of vitamin D make people more susceptible to the coronavirus. The video also explains the other important roles that vitamin D, which also functions as a hormone, plays in the human body.

Lifesite News explains:

According to a now viral interview with Professor Roger Seheult of the Loma Linda University School of Medicine, several studies show that people with higher amounts of Vitamin D in their blood are less likely to test positive for COVID-19 than people with Vitamin D deficiency. Another study has shown that COVID-positive patients treated with hydroxylated Vitamin D were less likely to need admittance to ICU than COVID-positive patients in the placebo group. Still another study showed that COVID-positive patients treated with Vitamin D were more likely to be COVID-negative in 21 days than their counterparts in the placebo group.

This video also states that our body’s ability to create vitamin D from sunshine drops dramatically as we get into our 70s and 80s, which coincidentally, are also the age groups most vulnerable to COVID-19.

As well, many were predicting a resurgence of COVID this fall and winter, because these are the seasons when our body’s’ vitamin D levels are typically at their lowest due to a lack of sunshine that naturally produces the vitamin in our bodies. Fall and winter are also known as the flu and cold season for the same reason.
