    Many don't eat a proper diet. And the western diet in general isn't all that good for us, without serious tweaking (like eliminating corn fed beef in favor of grass fed beef).

    Some people have medical or genetic issues that prevent absorption of some vitamins and minerals.

    Many people are deficient in specific vitamins and minerals such as vitamin D and magnesium regardless of how well they eat.

    and those people with O+ blood appear to be totally immune from it. My wife is such a person, but we still eat properly.
    Only a blood test will show what is needed. To assume with out checking yourself out, can be just as deadly as the virus.
    I've said it before, the blood test is the only good test.

    Out insurance pays the full bill when we get tested. They test for minerals and vitamin levels and started testing for COVID last year for no additional cost.

    If you spend time outside without bathing in sunscreen you get plenty of vitamin D.

    Grass fed beef is great. It big nutritional issue is the Omega 3:6 ratio. Grass fed beef has a health ratio of 1:3 while corn fed beef has an unhealthy ratio of 1:6 or worse. I have another thread that discusses the unhealthy issues related to Omega 6 trans-fatty acids. It may be more harmful (when you have too much compared to the 3s) than sugar.

    From what I've read the differences in that ratio between grass fed and corn fed isn't that significant. I would also say that you need Omega 6. It's not harmful per se. In fact, it's critical for human health. It's just that we consume too much of it.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.
