House resolution to recognize significance of Vitamin D in COVID-19
I had another post in mind for today, but this nutrition news was too interesting not to share. Vitamin D has been prominent in the media with changing perspectives on its role in helping defend against, treat, and mitigate severity of COVID-19 - and you are likely getting questions from students about the role of diet and supplements in immune support. This past week, Congressman Glenn Grothman introduced a House Resolution to recognize the significant role vitamin D may play in the fight against COVID-19 - particularly in the elderly and immunocompromised. Link to resolution here and article summarizing the background and intent of the resolution. The Wisconsin legislator pointed to claims of science and medical experts from the U.S. and abroad that sent an open letter to world governments stating clear evidence that Vitamin D reduces COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations, and deaths.
