Your pseudoscience is dangerous... telling people to take vitamins as a defence... wear certain colour masks because the chemistry helps protect
Come on man.

That is not pseudo science, yes, some colorings can kill viruses. Others can poison us mildly. Research the cyano dies. Also, there are flame
retardants and other antimicrobial chemistries used in treating clothes these days, wash the masks before using and be aware, some of these chemicals
are slow released and are not meant to be used as a mask material.
Deficiencies in a vitamin or mineral can increase the risk of catching a disease, or overreacting to a disease. Many of our bodies enzymes are metal
based enzymes, lack of appropriate minerals means you cannot make the enzyme. Vitamins like B12 and even the amino acid Taurine are neuromodulators
and keep the body from over reacting to disease. No pseudo science involved, I have supplied lots of evidence of the method of action of these things
over the years on this and other sites. I know proteinases well, these are chemicals that can either help a person or tear them apart. I know lots
about liver, digestive, and pancreatic enzymes and the metabolic processes and the necessary minerals that are required for these enzymes to form.
I never tell people to take high doses of vitamins, minerals, or foods containing enzymes, I just try to inform them that certain food chemistries can
help in certain situations. Deficiencies in minerals or vitamins mess up our metabolism, so do too much of these same compounds. Vitamin D is
necessary, a deficiency causes problems, but too much is dangerous and can cause problems too. Same with iodine, we need some, but too much can cause
problems....yet people who believe in Iodine supplements in high doses don't pay attention to what too much can cause.
Most of the people in the USA have a deficiency in at least one mineral or vitamin which negatively effects their metabolism. That is why many people
take supplements. You can eat all of the leafy greens you want, but if you cannot take the minerals or vitamins out of them from a lacking enzyme it
does no good.
The basis of most medicines in this country is what I study and I relate it to food science. I have epilepsy and control it with food chemistry and
specialized supplements, it took me years to find diverse ways to treat it.
So what is your expertise, believing in those who profit by making money off of us? I share my knowledge and do not charge a cent and have helped
quite a few people over the last ten years fix their diet which resulted in their doctor getting rid of meds because their problem disappeared. I
only advise, the people I help need to identify the metabolic intolerances and deficiencies that cause their disease....they need to pay attention and
wind up healthy..
