Healthcare providers and researchers continue to learn more about the SARS-CoV-2 virus (the virus that causes Covid-19) and how it impacts the body and its various systems. One key area of investigation has been why and how this novel coronavirus can trigger a level of blood clotting that can damage the lungs, heart and other organs.
We cannot definitively say that Cain caught COVID-19 because he attended the rally. But this tragic story can serve as perhaps a much needed reminder, especially as we all get more restless and impatient with quarantine and certain restrictions in place, that the coronavirus is still very much a threat and something we need to take seriously and be proactive about.
Obesity was recently named a top risk factor for COVID-19. Even being ‘mildly obese’ can put you at serious risk, according to a recent report discussing a study from the European Journal of Endocrinology.
Due to COVID-19, the virus we all obviously want to prevent or be able to successfully fight off should we contract it, there has been a lot of talk about vitamin D.

It’s evident that being obese is associated with such serious health issues like hypertension, diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), depression and even cancer. And now, a recent study provided evidence which states that a fat cell’s “immune response” may make obesity even worse.
The Chemical Weapons Convention of 1993 actually banned the use of riot control agents/tear gas “as a method of warfare.” Despite this, police are still legally allowed to use tear gas for crowd control.
Despite the fact that there are numerous studies which support the theory that nutrients are important weapons in the fight against COVID-19, I have yet to see a single press conference by the experts mention this critical fact. As healthcare consumers, we need to identify credible sources ourselves about how to remain safe as we attempt to return to normalcy.
Some researchers suggest that the health status of an individual’s gut microbiome may be able to help predict how severe a case of COVID-19 a person may have.
A recent study that examined COVID-19 cases and mortality rates across 20 European countries found significant evidence which suggests that areas with low average levels of vitamin D not only have more coronavirus cases but also higher rates of death due to the virus.
