Opinion: mRNA Vaccines in Kids 5-11
From eNewsletter 10/27/2021
DID YOU KNOW that a first-of-its kind study from European Journal of Nutrition assessed whether vitamin C supplementation helped mental vitality in young adults? The double-blind, placebo-controlled study was conducted in healthy young adults (20–39 years), and analyzed the associations of serum vitamin C concentrations with vitality (fatigue and attention) and mood status (stress, depression, and positive and negative affect). Healthy subjects whose serum vitamin C concentrations were inadequate were randomly given 500 mg of vitamin C twice a day for 4 weeks or a placebo. Compared to the placebo, vitamin C supplementation significantly increased attention and work absorption with distinct tendency of improvement on fatigue and comprehensive work engagement. The authors concluded: "Inadequate vitamin C status is related to a low level of mental vitality. Vitamin C supplementation effectively increased work motivation and attentional focus and contributed to better performance on cognitive tasks requiring sustained attention." We love it!

Editing Error Last week, I wrote about a JAMA Internal Medicine study about mRNA vaccine-related myocarditis. I wrote: "The conclusion was pretty much what we've said from the beginning about this issue. After one dose, myocarditis is very rare (5.8 per 1 million persons). After the second dose, based upon the current 3 week schedule, the risk goes up significantly (1 in 172,414 persons)." I should have written 0.8 per 1 million persons instead of 5.8.
