High levels of air pollution may be “one of the most important contributors” to deaths from coronavirus, claims new research.
Estimates suggest that 92 per cent of the world’s population live in places where air pollution exceeds safe limits. In 2012 around 6.5 million deaths (11.6 percent of all global deaths) are believed to have been associated with such pollution.
Significantly, therefore, research from the United States has found that high-dose B vitamins may “completely offset” the damage caused by the most dangerous type of air pollution. Published in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal, the researchers showed that exposure to fine particulate matter of the type produced by burning fossil fuels in motor vehicles can be mitigated by a daily supplement of B vitamins.
But while high levels of air pollution may be contributing to deaths from the coronavirus, the most important thing that all of us can do to protect ourselves right now is to take action to strengthen our immune systems. As Dr. Rath described in his recent Open Letter, more than 25,000 studies have established a clear link between vitamins/antioxidants and the strengthening of the immune system. In particular, vitamin C is known to decrease or completely block the replication of all viruses it is applied to. Even in cells chronically infected with HIV, vitamin C has been shown to reduce viral replication by more than 99 percent.
The consequences of the systematic suppression of this health knowledge are obvious. Had it already become part of public health policies around the world, the coronavirus pandemic could have been largely avoided. The only beneficiary from the continued suppressing of lifesaving natural health information is the trillion-dollar a year pharmaceutical ‘business with disease’.
The people of every nation on Earth have the right to learn that there are effective, safe and affordable means, in the form of vitamins and other micronutrients, available right now to boost their immune systems and help protect their health against viral infections. Depriving this potentially life-saving information from the people of the world is a crime against humanity.
