Posted by Chantel M. Contributed by US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health

In the study of "Vitamin D: importance in the prevention of cancers, type 1 diabetes, heart disease, and osteoporosis" by Holick MF., posted in US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, researchers wrote that Numerous epidemiologic studies suggest that exposure to sunlight, which enhances the production of vitamin D(3) in the skin, is important in preventing many chronic diseases and The recommended adequate intakes for vitamin D are inadequate, and, in the absence of exposure to sunlight, a minimum of 1000 IU vitamin D/d is required to maintain a healthy concentration of 25(OH)D in the blood.

  1. The reasons for malabsorption of Vitamin D also need to be address, as with some patients this is an ongoing cause for Vitamin D deficiency and no matter how much they take they are not able to absorb it. Homeopathic treatment can help to address and correct this problem.

  2. The RDA of vitamin D was tripled in December 2010. In the last 3 years, 7 MDs have written 7 books on vitamin D. The last one is from a popular series, Vitamin D for Dummies.

    Moores Cancer Center is proposing that cancer is a vitamin D deficiency. Doctor of Public Health, Cedric Garland, has said to over 100 scientists and doctors at a conference that ENOUGH vitamin D can virtually eradicate breast cancer.

    I sunbathe for vitamin D (Dr Holick says that is the best way to get vitamin D). One of the above books is by Dr Holick with a forward by Andrew Weil MD. I eat natto for vitamin K2.
