Vitamin D: Financial Times: Why governments are not acting on vitamin D

Tags: Vitamin D 2000 IU Prevents Cancer osteoporosis, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes, depression and rheumatoid arthritis, among other diseases Financial Times

Pretty good article. Similar to why sunscreens with only UVB protection was on the market so long while UVA which most likely causes often fatal Melanoma ignored. Also ignored is that sunscreens with UVB prevents our skin from producing Vitamin D.

Remind you again why the corporate Republicans and Democrats do hurt your health. Sunscreens came into widespread use in the 1980s which resulted in a huge upsurge in melanoma until several years ago when UVA sunscreens were introduced and melanoma did not increase each year for the first time in decades.

The big secret is that dermatologists and surgeons will lose a lot of money if there is an increase in the use of vitamin D. I convinced at least two of my three doctors to greatly up vitamin D to their patients. The third is a dermatologist whom I haven't seen since I started taking more vitamin D a few years ago, but did send the scientific papers. It cured several autoimmune skin diseases I had, mostly the result of my kidney failure.

Don't forget to read the The Sugar Fix by Dr. Richard J. Johnson who did peer review work on the harmful effects of high fructose corn sugar. Getting rid of high glycemic foods as one diet does results in weight loss. The Johnson diet does not require you to get rid of lots of fiber containing carbohydrates after two week fast of fructose containing foods to reduce the fructose enzymes in our cells which makes us crave fructose.

In recent years, vitamin D has been going to some exciting places. Reports of new and promising studies seem to emerge almost weekly. A 2007 analysis of vitamin D studies found that individuals with higher vitamin D levels are significantly – as much as 50 per cent – less likely to develop colorectal cancer. Another 2007 study found that women who took 1,100 International Units (IU) of vitamin D per day together with a calcium supplement reduced their overall cancer risk by 60 per cent. And the excitement is not only about cancer prevention.

Low vitamin D levels have been linked to an increased risk of osteoporosis, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes, depression and rheumatoid arthritis, among other diseases. Perhaps not surprisingly, in light of the other studies, one recent review of the health records of more than 13,000 Americans found that individuals with the lowest vitamin D levels were 26 per cent more likely, in an eight-year period, to die than those with the highest levels. ... the best research suggests that to achieve the higher vitamin D blood levels associated with disease prevention, most adults in the US would need to take 1,000-2,000 IU a day: five to 10 times more than the current official recommendation for adults. ...
