Why feds sued doctor $500B for recommending vitamin D plus zinc

Sources Of Vitamin D

A St. Louis-based chiropractor, Dr. Eric Nepute is facing federal fines of about half a trillion dollars for allegedly profiting from sales of vitamin D3 and zinc supplements during the “pandemic.” The 27-page complaint filed by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in April 2021 accused Dr. Nepute of profiting from the sales of supplements during the COVID-19 scamdemic. He sold vitamin D3 and zinc supplements, which have been proven to address COVID-19 infection, under the Wellness Warrior brand. At the same time supplements are being discouraged, excessive deaths following the mRNA injections are ongoing and those who made said injections will not be held liable for any damages done.

The complaint added that Nepute’s “lack of factual or scientific bases for these claims [are] frequently accompanied by equally unsupported assertions regarding applicable science. In short, (the) defendants are selling their products by disseminating information, exploiting fears [amid] a pandemic and posting a significant risk to public health and safety.”

“The federal government is suing me for half a trillion dollars … for telling people to take vitamins,” said Nepute, who hosts “Real Talk with Dr. Eric Nepute” on Brighteon.TV. “The only reason they’re coming after me – and they said this – is because I’m the first doctor they went after and they want to set a precedent. They said they wouldn’t stop until they had ‘blood on their sword.’ That’s literally from the FTC’s mouth.”

Lawyers for Nepute have already filed a motion to dismiss the government’s case on summary judgment, including more than 10 million alleged violations of the COVID-19 Consumer Protection Act of 2020 and more than 12 million violations of the FTC Act. Each alleged violation carries a maximum civil penalty of $43,792 – which amounts to a total of more than $500 billion. This penalty, according to the chiropractor’s lawyers, exceeds “the gross domestic product of Austria, Nigeria, and all but 25 nations.” -Natural News

Nepute remarked that the FTC is pushing the case “because it’s political.” He added: “I’ve spent $3.5 million defending myself. The only tactic they have is to drag this out, so I can’t afford to take it to trial.”

Dr. Nepute explains that his lawyer presented over 100 peer-reviewed studies and over 24 randomized controlled studies in support of vitamin D and other early treatments for COVID. He said that a 600,000 person study reported this month that if the government had recommended vitamin D for COVID, the lives of about 116,000 Americans could have been saved just in 2020. He points out that people died because the government suppressed this information. Dr. Nepute points out that the Department of Defense recommends vitamin D, zinc, and vitamin C as part of their COVID protocol in their manual! He says even Tony Fauci recommends it.

The government alleges Dr. Nepute violated the new COVID-19 Consumer Protection Act of the 2021 Consolidated Appropriations Act, which few people have heard of. Dr. Nepute says the government claims he used fear and fraud to profit during COVID. However, he points out that in early 2020,  Boris Johnson, then Prime Minister of Great Britain, said publically that he was going to give away vitamin D to most vulnerable people in his country because research has clearly shown that vitamin D is helpful in protecting against COVID.

So, Dr. Nepute went to the governor and senators in his state (Missouri) and asked if some of the hundreds of millions of COVID dollars could be used to give vitamin D to people in nursing homes and to other most vulnerable people. When they refused, Dr. Nepute’s company purchased and gave away over 2 million bottles of vitamin D and zinc! People paid only shipping and handling.
