    Crazy days. If people would stop panicking there wouldn't be an issue. I have two friends in Australia and they tell me stories about the toilet paper issue and people fighting in stores

    if they would stock up the shelves there wouldn't be a problem. you can't just bring in one pallet load and expect that to be enough. people need to see the whole space full to feel reassured they won't be left standing there holding a finished toilet roll.

    I work in the grocery business, and I can tell you that stocking is not the problem. The manufacturers are not providing enough product to the distribution centers, so it is being rationed among the stores that the warehouse serves. My store is currently receiving about 25% of what we order. That doesn't last very long.
  • The stores should have started limiting people's purchases right away. The people buying 5 packs of 36 mega-roll toilet paper is who is causing the problems. Other people see them buying everything they can, then the everyday normal shopper is scared that they won't be able to get their 4 rolls per week, so they try to buy as much as they can find as well, etc....

    Yes, it's more of a supply chain issue and might take a while to correct.

    Curious when or if the first road block happens by the national guard and I get to show my VIP letter and see how it works.

    If you are not mega dosing on Vitamin C and taking vitamin D3, please look into it.

    There is no scientific research supporting the claim that taking high doses of vitamin C could help prevent or cure COVID-19. My brother in law is also a nurse at Northeast Georgia Medical and this information about vitamin c is false.
    https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention.html
    If there was any truth to Vitamin C helping our Government wouldn't keep this information from us.

    While vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is an essential nutrient, it's possible to have too much of it.

    Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that supports normal growth and development and helps your body absorb iron. Because your body doesn't produce or store vitamin C, it's important to include vitamin C in your diet. For most people, an orange or a cup of strawberries, chopped red pepper, or broccoli provides enough vitamin C for the day.

    For adults, the recommended daily amount for vitamin C is 65 to 90 milligrams (mg) a day, and the upper limit is 2,000 mg a day. Although too much dietary vitamin C is unlikely to be harmful, megadoses of vitamin C supplements might cause:

    Diarrhea
    Nausea
    Vomiting
    Heartburn
    Abdominal cramps
    Headache
    Insomnia

    This whole thread started with false information. We need to stop spreading information just bc people read a couple articles online or see post on social media. Anything that works or is helpful President Trump will tell us and the CDC will also let us know.

    Why are you posting incorrect information? You have no idea what you are talking about when it comes to vitamin C.

    The claim that the government would provide truthful information regarding natural cures for ANY disease is patently false.

    I'll leave at that and let you, and others do as you wish. Not my concern.

    ABSTRACT

    The use of doses of tens of thousands of milligrams of vitamin C per day may be the most unacknowledged successful research in medicine. High doses were advocated almost immediately after ascorbic acid was isolated. Notable early medical pioneers of high-dose vitamin C therapy are Claus Washington Jungeblut (1898-1976); William J. McCormick (1880-1968); and Frederick R. Klenner (1907-1984). More recently, important work has been published by Hugh D. Riordan (1932-2005) and Robert F. Cathcart III (1932 – 2007). Jungeblut first published on ascorbate as prevention and treatment for polio, in 1935. Also in 1935, Jungeblut showed that vitamin C inactivated diphtheria toxin. By 1937, Jungeblut demonstrated that ascorbate inactivated tetanus toxin. Between 1943 and 1947, Klenner, a specialist in diseases of the chest, cured 41 cases of viral pneumonia with vitamin C. By 1946, McCormick showed how vitamin C prevents and also cures kidney stones; by 1957, how it fights cardiovascular disease. Beginning in the 1960s, Robert F. Cathcart, M.D. used large doses of vitamin C to treat pneumonia, hepatitis, and eventually AIDS. For more three decades, beginning in 1975, Hugh D. Riordan, M.D. and his team have successfully used large doses of intravenous vitamin C against cancer. The medical literature has virtually ignored nearly 75 years of physician reports and laboratory and clinical studies on successful high-dose ascorbate therapy.

    Here's some real information. I'm out on this topic.

    The best thing we can all do is listen to the CDC/Canadian health guidelines on social distancing and stay home, wash our hands regularly and work to stay healthy (physically and mentally). Spend time with your families. Call relatives and friends to make sure they are doing okay. I realize that this may be a difficult time, but we have to do it to save as many people as we can. We all have people that we love who this could impact. We need to stay positive, come together and realize we’re all in this together. Be safe out there and my best to every member of this fantasy football community.
