Many of us don’t follow the best diets. As a result, our bodies may be lacking in certain essential vitamins and minerals. The good news is that, overall, most Americans are getting enough of some important nutrients—like folate, vitamin D, and iodine—according to the   CDC . The bad news? Many of us aren’t getting enough of   all   the major vitamins and minerals our bodies need. For instance, according to the most recent   US Dietary Guidelines , a number of Americans aren’t getting sufficient amounts of dietary fiber, potassium, choline, magnesium, calcium, iron, and vitamins, A, D, E, and C. So, what do we do when we have one or more nutritional deficiencies? We either tweak our food choices or take supplements to fill these gaps.

A   Sydney   gastroenterologist who has been enthusiastically promoting an unapproved Covid-19 treatment, including to Australian politicians and general practitioners, has filed a patent in the US for the same treatment, allowing him to commercialise and profit from it, if approved. Prof Thomas Borody has been quoted  in medical newsletters  and  publications , and in news outlets including the  Financial Review , the  Daily Telegraph  and  the Australian , promoting what he describes as a “triple therapy protocol” to treat and cure Covid-19.
