Dr. Eric Nepute is the very first doctor that the federal government has come after, accusing him of violating the 2020 COVID Consumer Protection Act. His case is the first case and is a civil action by the Federal Trade Commission.
According to the commission’s complaint, Nepute and his company marketed vitamin D and zinc products under the brand name “Wellness Warrior” and claimed they were as effective – or more – than vaccines that are currently available.
The FTC said among Nepute, and Quickwork’s bogus claims were that “COVID-19 patients who get enough vitamin D are 52% less likely to die,” and those who get enough vitamin D are 77% less likely to get the disease and that his Wellness Warrior vitamin D product is more effective at preventing COVID-19 than approved vaccines.
“The defendants’ claims that their products can stand in for approved COVID-19 vaccines are particularly troubling: we need to be doing everything we can to stop bogus health claims that endanger consumers,” an FTC official said.
He is being sued for $40,000 per violation, defined as Dr. Nepute telling the world that they should take vitamin D and zinc to help them deal with COVID on any level. He certainly is not the first doctor to strongly advocate the use of vitamins and supplements to fight COVID. In total, the government is suing him for over 12 million instances where his advertisements were heard. Multiply $40,000 by 12 million, and you get a total of $480 billion he is being sued for! Just what a bully government thinks is just, rational and science-based.
