A recent tweet by the UK PM's official account suggested that we entertain ourselves by baking.

These were epidemiological (population) studies. But laboratory research has been demonstrating the role of micronutrition in cellular immunity for decades, too. "There's no virus that can penetrate a healthy cell fed with nutrition at optimal levels."Dr Myron Wentz, PhD Microbiology, specialty in immunology This was the bold statement made by Dr. Myron Wentz in 2019. On the face of it, this seems like a fairly outrageous claim. But the word [...]
