New Paper Reveals Why Minorities Are More Liable To Suffer from COVID-19

High ranking public officials have been decrying the disproportionate number of Blacks and Latinos who have fallen victim to the Coronavirus. Researcher Marshall Barnes however has released a paper that identifies the potential causes.
ATLANTA - May 20, 2020 - PRLog -- Why have Blacks and other minorities been so disproportionately effected by the COVID-19 crises? That's what so many public and health policy officials want to know. Then they should read, The Importance of Immune System Health In African American and Latino Populations Facing COVID -19, the new paper by internationally noted researcher and scientist, Marshall Barnes. In a straight forward and succinct manner, he lays out the case that what's missing is the emphasis on strengthening immune systems as an anti-viral defense. He not only cites published medical papers but his own research that includes evidence papers promoting misleading research and downplaying the benefits of vitamin C, specifically identifying papers that claim there is little benefit while utilizing insufficient amounts.

Claiming knowledge stemming from his research in battling the common cold, another member of the coronavirus family, and backing it up with published reports from within the medical community, he makes the argument that social distancing, hand washing and other physical methods promoted are not enough. Without a boosted immune system, people will fall victim to COVID-19 much easier and, in addition to lacking the required in-take of vitamin C, the junk food, sugary diet and activities common in minority communities actually reduce immune systems further.

"Despite the alarm at high percentages of COVID-19 victims in minority communities, no one's looking at the most basic, obvious element missing when it comes to fighting colds and viruses - the immune system. There's no official focus on that and how to boost that defense in any of the major information releases promoted to the public, specifically the minority communities falling victim at such higher rates."

Marshall identifies at least 7 key activities common in minority communities detrimental to maintaining a healthy immune system. Combined with a lack of proper vitamin C levels shown to help the body fight infection and it's a recipe for exactly the situation occurring in minority communities now.

"Instead of this focus on social distancing and hand washing, some of it must be on remedies to weakened immune systems," Marshall states. "Nothing is going to provide a 100% barrier against exposure to the virus. Focus on lessening the viral effectiveness is tantamount and is only accomplished by boosting the immune system."
