    I miss when you could still take time to charge by the frost line.

    Heard something about Vit C early on. To the best of my memory, went something like this:

    Chinese family in Wuhan, all in same house. Mother was giving her mother 24 grams of Vit C daily (which is almost an ounce). Giving mega doses to others in the home as well. Think the mom of mom was confirmed to have the virus. Authorities came and took mom of mom away.

    Mom begged and pleaded with hospital staff to give mom of mom mega doses of Vit C. They agreed to 10 grams daily.

    Can't remember what happened to mom of mom, but since it hit the news, she probably survived.

    What I do remember for sure is that they tested all others in the home, and all were free of the virus. I'm guessing the home was small, so easy for "cross contamination".

    Just sayin'. Anecdotal? Yes. But in the early stages of a 'crisis', it can often be that one off that rings the bell.

    The best lies are mixed [hidden] within truths.

    I caught a Cold after a visit with a Physical Therapist on Dec. 29, I had a visit with a different PT on Jan. 3. I had an appointment with the PT Evaluator on the 6th. He wanted to reschedule if I had a Cold. I told him I was over the cold. I was on Vitamin C. The original PT still had the Cold. Thought it was something else they wanted to reschedule, when it was one of their staff who gave it to me. I ended up passing it to my wife, and she had a short time with the Cold, on Vitamin C too.

    There was something many years ago about mega doses of Vit C. Long story short, does help for some things, but continued mega dose use is not good.

    Mega doses for long periods can have unpleasant side effects but some say it is helpful for certain things.

    On a bit of a tangent . . .

    Vitamins and supplements do support good health, but once you get cancer, they promote the growth of the cancer. So you need to stop.

    I don’t take mega-doses of vitamins. I take 500mg Vit. C and 2000 IU of Vit. D. I back off of Caffeine, and take both just before bedtime. I was told by my Endocrinologist to take the Vitamins at that time for the maximum absorption.

    I saw a program that said the vitamin C and zinc recommendations would NOT do a thing!!

    I guess that if it does not kill you or adversely affect you, do it.
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."
