Flu continues to spread throughout the country, and 29 children so far have died from complications from this widespread virus.
Dr. Tom Frieden, the National CDC Director, stated this year as a "worse than average season, particularly for the elderly."
The season is at mid-point, meaning new cases of flu are declining, but Frieden said there is an expectation the rates of hospitalization and death to rise as the epidemic progresses.
The CDC doesn't track all flu-related fatalities in adults, but the second week of January, 8.3% of reported deaths were due to pneumonia and influenza - up from 7.3% the previous week and exceeds the epidemic threshold of 7.2%.
During the first 2 weeks of 2013, 9 children died of flu complications, bringing the total for the season to 29, compared to the 2011-2012 flu season total of 34, the CDC reported. And we're only half way through!
Pharmaceutical corporations make billions of dollars every year selling pills, potions and vaccines to keep people from getting the flu, the the problem is most of these "remedies" don't even work!
We believe the only sure-fire way to avoid the flu and most other viruses this season is to load up on vitamin D3!
Want some proof?
A revealing 3-year study of African American women proved the flu is directly linked to vitamin D deficiency!
One group of women received a placebo and the other received 800 IU of vitamin D per day for 2 years, then received 2,000 IU per day for the 3rd year.
The unfortunate women receiving the placebo experienced more than 3x as many seasonal colds and flu as those who received 800 IU, but those who received 2,000 IU? They had only 1 case of flu during an entire year, and no winter flu at all!
The placebo group had 24 cases of flu in the winter and when compared to ZERO cases among the vitamin D group, it's obvious how effective vitamin D is!
Based on this research, optimal vitamin D levels - right now - seem to be a much better alternative to preventing the flu than using an ineffective, expensive drug with potentially disastrous side effects.
We have the most powerful vitamin D formula in the world called Ultra D3 - and it kicks your immune system in the highest gear to fight off any viral onslaught coming your way.
Even if you've already been hit with a cold, or the dreaded flu, Ultra D3 will act like a ninja warrior and knock out the virus virtually overnight.
