In this paper, I argue that the covid-19 pandemic that has ravaged the world’s healthcare systems and economies is actually a Vitamin D deficiency problem with an unbelievably effective solution that costs a few cents a day per person but saves lives and trillions of dollars, with zero adverse side effects. Until people worldwide raise their serum Vitamin D levels to 30 ng/mL (75 nmol/L) and above—covid-19 and other viruses will continue to wreak havoc on health and economies. Remarkably, fighting viruses is only the tip of the iceberg of the health problems that high doses of Vitamin D can solve. One way to verify these properties of high doses of Vitamin D for yourself is to talk to someone that you trust who takes more than 5,000 IU of Vitamin D per day. That trusted someone can be a friend, family member, co-worker, someone from your place of worship, or someone from a social network you trust.
