“An estimated 1.7 billion people, 22 percent of the global population, have at least one underlying health condition that could increase their risk of severe illness if infected with the coronavirus, according to a modelling study that uses data from 188 countries.” [Source: Medicalexpress.com]
The vast majority of people dying from the coronavirus have preexisting conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and certain other chronic diseases. Recent research suggests that having health problems such as these raises the risk of dying from the virus by 12-fold. Far from being a mystery, however, the reason for this is already well understood.
As proven by Dr. Rath’s Cellular Medicine research, the primary cause of chronic diseases is a long-term deficiency of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other specific micronutrients. At the same time, micronutrient deficiency is also the major factor contributing to compromised immunity. Around 25,000 scientific studies have established a clear connection between micronutrients and the health of the immune system.
Statistics from Italy show that more than 99 percent of the patients who died from the coronavirus suffered from pre-existing conditions, particularly cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. Had they and their doctors been educated about the role of micronutrients in preventing and controlling these health problems, many lives could have been saved.
