    1. Hemila and colleagues reported that various high-dose intravenous VC infusions (e.g., 200 mg/kg body weight/day, divided into 4 doses) shortened the intensive care unit (ICU) stay by 7.8% [11], accompanied by a significant reduction in the mortality rate

      Infusion of Vitamin C resulted in COVID-19 patients facing less severity in symptoms, leading to them staying in the ICU for a shorter period of time and also significantly reducing their probability of death. This is really promising proof towards my proposed hypothesis.

    1. Conclusions from the experiment show that while Vitamin C cannot stop someone from attaining COVID-19, it can significantly reduce symptoms that are associated from it. However, does the 1g/day dosage apply to those who were previously diagnosed to have vitamin C deficiency? Does a deficiency in other vitamins affect the rate of absorption of Vitamin C in the human body?

    1. The FBI said it has stopped using the "Black Identity Extremist" tag and acknowledged that white supremacist violence is the biggest terrorist threat this country faces.

      When using the "Always Check" Approach, this headline generated many relevant Google searches, with multiple other media outlets covering this. Hence, The Root appears to be credible. I'm very surprised that it took a long time for the FBI to make this decision.

    2. #Fauci recommended people take #VitaminD and #VitaminC supplements if they are deficient to protect against #COVID19.

      In addition to wearing masks, socially distancing, and good personal hygiene, it's important to make sure you're having adequate vitamin levels or taking appropriate supplements.

    3. A new pilot study found low serum levels of #VitaminC and #VitaminD in most of our critically ill #COVID19 #ICU patients. Older age and low Vitamin C level appeared co-dependent risk factors for #mortality.

      Seems like COVID-19 patients who have a deficiency in vitamin C are more susceptible to mortality, therefore, to increase their survival rate, high dosage is likely required.

    1. More people than you would think believe that the blue checkmark = trustworthy. But all the blue checkmark really does is say that the person is who they say they are, that they are the person of that name and not an imposter.

      This is a great point. Unfortunately, the blue checkmark is misleading. Many people associate the blue checkmark as being a credible figure.

    1. In this review, we focused on the pharmacology of CBD and the most solid clinical evidence supporting its use as an anti-seizure medication.

      This paper is great to review when addressing my hypothesis: Usage of cannabinoids will lessen the frequency of Epileptic seizures.

    1. To assess the efficacy and safety of cannabinoids when used as monotherapy or add‐on treatment for people with epilepsy.
