Important information about Corona Virus from

Important information about Corona Virus

from Professor Joshua Ritchie, M.D. Dean of Refuah Institute


I have important life saving information to share with you about what you can do to prevent having a serious case of Corona virus infection simply by taking a zinc supplement.


My previous research on vitamin E deficiency in premature infants has been published in the New England Journal of Medicine and is being used in every hospital in the world today. It has saved hundreds of millions premature infants from blindness, brain damage, and death.


Now I have done new research on prevention of Corona Virus, and I have found that Zinc deficiency makes the severity of the Corona Virus infection much worse.


At least one third of the population has zinc deficiency. The metabolic process for resistance to infection is notably and especially dependent on zinc.


So, I advise all adults to start taking 30 milligrams of Zinc every day, starting now. Please spread the word and share this important information.


If you cannot get zinc supplement pills then work at eating enough foods high in zinc, such as meat, dairy, oatmeal, nuts, seeds, and breakfast cereal fortified with zinc and try to find some vitamins containing zinc like a good multivitamin. Getting such a large dose of zinc just from food is usually very difficult and requires making a drastic change in diet. A much easier solution is to simply take a zinc supplement of 20 mg to 40 mg of elemental zinc per day.
