Recently, Business Insider wrote some fake news about my video on nutrition and coronavirus. Their story led to the censorship of my video. The reporter who wrote the story, Canela Lopez, took misinformation and outright lies as truths and published the story without even properly interviewing me. I responded to her story by sending her the following email:

Hi Canela,

You make several claims on the danger of vitamins D and A. As a matter of fact, the title of this article contains the word “Near-Lethal”.

This is very misleading, as the safety profile of these vitamins is well established, even at higher doses.

High dose vitamin D – AKA, Stoss therapy has been used as a treatment since the early 1900’s. You can use these research studies as proof of it’s safety even at high doses –

Natural vitamin A reported deaths in the medical literature are virtually non existent unless you refer to a single case of an infant consuming a massive amount of liver by accident. All other vitamin A deaths are caused by the prescription drug Accutane (which is not the same as natural vitamin A).
The drug Accutane has caused 14 deaths already this year – https://www.channel4.com/news/acne-drug-linked-to-at-least-14-deaths-this-year

I know that you took vitamin A info on death from the NIH website, but if you notice, they do not cite a resource for making that claim. To the contrary, research studies show that high dose vitamin A therapy is safe and effective:

There are no known cases of vitamin C toxicity induced deaths. Using “Near-Lethal” in the headline is definitely misleading.

Additionally,
Vitamins A, D, and C have all been researched as safe and effective for viral infections. As this article will not allow you to dive into the plethora of research supporting this fact, I have attached a few links, including Harvard studies, below for you to read. One of the studies also shows how using high dose vitamin A and D increase the effectiveness of the flu vaccine.

Vitamin A – https://www.mdpi.com/1999-4915/11/10/907/htm

Vitamin C -https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6057395/

There are no known cases of vitamin C toxicity induced deaths. Using “Near-Lethal” in the headline is definitely misleading.

Thank you for allowing me to give my comments. As I am sure you can understand that a person’s reputation is important to maintain, I would appreciate you making adjustments to your article so that it does not misrepresent what I discussed in my video. The way the article currently reads is libel. The information given in my video is backed by science, and in no way recommends “near-lethal” advice.

All the best,

Dr. O
