(Natural News) The segment of the American population being most impacted by the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) is black people, for which President Donald Trump and his administration have expressed their sympathies. But why, then, isn’t the president trying to help African Americans stay better protected by encouraging them to get more vitamin D?
During a recent press conference, President Trump admitted that black people are disproportionately dying from complications while having the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), stating that “they are getting hit very, very hard.” Trump added that it remains a “tremendous challenge,” and that it’s “terrible” that so many African Americans are said to be suffering from the virus.
But the elephant in the room that nobody is talking about is the fact that black people are also disproportionately vitamin D deficient due to the dark pigment of their skin, which doesn’t as readily accept vitamin D-producing ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun as lighter skin does.
Consequently, millions of African Americans are vitamin D deficient, which means their bodies aren’t as protected against infection as lighter-skinned people, not to mention that black people are also disproportionately fatter and sicker, in many cases, compared to non-African Americans.
“We’re very concerned about it,” added Dr. Anthony Fauci, who’s been trying to sway Americans away from taking chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine to fight the virus, and instead wait for an eventual Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine.
“It’s very sad, it’s (sic) nothing we can do about it right now except to try and give them the best possible care to avoid those complications,” he added.
Listen below to The Health Ranger Report as Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, discusses how Natural News has been right about the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic pretty much since Day One:
All Americans could benefit from a little more vitamin D
Truth be told, most people these days are probably vitamin D deficient, seeing as how many of them work indoors all day, and are now cooped up even more due to Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) quarantines. But black people have it the worst, on average, which is why they’re most in need of this critical information.
But the Trump administration seems more concerned with steering people towards pharmaceuticals rather than nutrition, even though a healthy immune system is dependent upon proper nutrition. Vitamin D is inexpensive, safe, and when combined with vitamin K2 provides incredible immune support.
While black people aren’t more likely to catch the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) simply because they’re black, they are more likely to develop severe complications or die while having it, often due to other preexisting health conditions such as diabetes, obesity and hypertension.
Some 40 percent of all Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) deaths in the state of Michigan, as one example, have occurred in black people, even though black people represent less than 15 percent of the state’s overall population.
The White House is currently said to be compiling demographic data to go along with Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) reporting, which will allow the public to see for itself how the pandemic is affecting various racial groups. And this is happening at the request of President Trump.
“This is a critical issue for us that we’re raising, and we’re sounding the alarm,” stated Hardie Davis, president of the African American Mayors Association and the current mayor of Augusta, Georgia, another area where the ratio of black infections and deaths to white infections and deaths is noticeably disproportionate.
“We want to find the reason to it,” added President Trump.
