    Better to let the flu run it's course and end the lockdowns of healthy people. It will be far less damaging.

    On average, the immune system is weakest just after mid winter.
    On average, the immune system is at its greatest during mid summer.
    Northern hemisphere flu season. (Low sun angle)
    Southern hemisphere flu season. (Low sun angle)
    Rates of flu stay about the same on the equator. (Same amount of UVB daily)
    Rates of flu stay about the same in the extreme lower and higher latitudes. (Same amount of UVB daily)
    Your immune system is directly related to how much UVB your body is exposed to and how well your body converts UVB to Vitamin D.
    Many folk are scared of getting sunshine because of the risk of skin cancer but they are not aware that during the year the UV index changes because
    the sun angle changes; the rays of sunshine have further to penetrate through the atmosphere during winter when the sun angle is low.

    During winter you could stay outside all day without getting sunburnt in the lower to mid latitudes but, lets take today 08 May 2020.

    In Hobart, sun protection is not recommended, UV Index predicted to reach 2 [Low]
    In Melbourne, sun protection is required from 11:50AM to 12:20PM the UV Index predicted to reach 3 [Moderate]
    In Sydney, sun protection is required from 10:20AM to 1:10PM the UV Index predicted to reach 3 [Moderate]
    In Brisbane, sun protection is required from 09:20AM to 1:20PM the UV Index predicted to reach 5 [Moderate]
    In Darwin, sun protection is required from 09:20AM to 3:50PM the UV Index predicted to reach 10 [Very High]

    *You can see that folk who live closer to the higher latitudes have more exposure throughout the year to UV and hence they have a higher exposure to UVB
    and have higher levels of Vitamin D and their level of flu infection stays about constant.
    *Those that live closer to the lower latitudes will have lower Vitamin D levels but their level of flu infection stays about constant.
    (Obviously, some races absorb more than others).
    *Those folk who have flu seasons have the greatest changes in UV, examples, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane (Rough example)

    As a suggestion, check the Bureau Of Meteorology for the UV levels, get some sunshine before protection is required; I normally get out of the sun before sun protection is required but before that time, I'm like a StarFish in the morning light.:D

    If you've got some others medical conditions-yes it is-if not- is the same serious as ordinary flu. Research some medical guru in this field( dr Lipton for example or some others). Don't be alarmed like all Main Media Stream....

    I think this situation really raises the broader question of how we see our society. Hopefully people reflect more on what they want from their short life.

    Theres people getting clubbed here in the US haha. The last ditch efforts of broke desperate small business owners trying to open only to find swat teams kicking in their doors and arresting patrons.
    They are getting exactly what they asked for now!
    The same people that agreed to close a few months ago and said NOTHING.
    I almost hate to say it but reality is coming fast and most Americans are dumber than a box of rocks. Shame in them is all I will say.

    You are probably right of course.
    I still think it is highly possible that with all the perceived and literal misdeeds from the USA certain states (even currently friendly) may find an opportunity to retaliate against the USA in a non weapons based form.
    Of course this is just a lunatic dreaming, but i can easily see nations using the USA infection rate as a pretense to limit imports and exports.
    For many that would love to take action against the USA but have not had the means present, then this could be a gift for a public relations attack against them and perhaps convince the world that has taken extreme measures to destroy this virus that the USA are clearly not good citizens and are a cesspit of disease looking to export it to a world they care nothing about.
    We shall see of course and in 2 months time you can come back and say ,i told you so Sterling, go get a life and stop dreaming:)

    They still haven't made the vitamin D deficiency connection. Even today a report came out that the government is confused as to why cases are much lower in Florida. Government in general is so dysfunctional.

    ^Same reason for many of the distorted facts.
    *The cholesterol myth. Every cell in your body has cholesterol, the liver makes about 1 - 2 grams of cholesterol per day.
    *The salt myth.
    *The calories in calories out myth.
    *The exercising myth.
    *The fruit myth.

    A woman's maternal instinct is certainly a strength to respect as a man

    290,000 to 650,000 - yip I think the WHO models are superb. When did they say there was no human to human spread and when did they declare this a pandemic - about 2 months after everyone knew. These flu figures are just models not reality. This graph of excess mortality in Spain compared to the last 82 years (where there were many flu outbreaks) says it all. That big yellow line is 2020. Think that was caused by global warming ? 43D23B0F-256C-42B3-B410-63DF0A7D8374.jpeg
