- The Facts:A recent study has emphasized how effective vitamin C may be for COVID-19, and how effective it is for viral infections in general. They also recommend nutritional interventions given the history of vaccine failure for viral infections.
- Reflect On:Why is published peer-reviewed research being labelled as false? Why are ideas presented in this paper, and in many others, heavily ridiculed and labelled a ‘conspiracy theory’ by the mainstream? Why do people believe it without investigating?
What Happened: Early on in the COVID-19 pandemic, many doctors and scientists were urging people to take vitamin C to help fight off a COVID-19 infection. These recommendations, which were based on years of science and data showing how effective vitamin C can be for viral infections, were instantaneously jumped on by Facebook-affiliated “fact-checkers” who claimed that these assertions were completely false. On top of that, multiple mainstream media outlets and other well-known media/science outlets did the same – which begs the question, are these outlets actually looking into the science, or are they simply relying on other organizations and entities to tell them what is, and what isn’t true? For example, an article published by LiveScience, a mainstream science website, states that “Vitamin C is extremely unlikely to help people fight off the new coronavirus.” How was LiveScience able to get away with such claims when they’re clearly not true? What’s really going on here?
