A study done on patients in Chicago found that black patients with low vitamin D levels were 2.64 times higher than those with higher levels. Folks, take your D!

A different study found that patients who got Vitamin D supplements had a lower risk of dying or needing mechanical ventilation.

Yet another study found that 80% of COVID patients admitted to hospital had low Vitamin D levels.

(There was an endocrinology conference, that’s why so much about Vitamin D came out today.)


Some folks developed a cookbook for people whose tastes have been altered by Long COVID. I had the impression that the taste changes were inconsistent across people (my sister-in-law tasted black pepper in everything!), so I’m not sure how you could make one cookbook for everybody, but what the heck.
