The first study is about a bunch of rats. One group is dosed up with vitamin D and the other group were not. The rats were put in a drowning pool. There was only one place in the whole pool that a footing could be found that would save their lives. The rats with a high level of vitamin D found that footing very quickly and the others without vitamin D did not. I don't think they let the other rats drown, but they sure thought they were going to.
So lets say a person is in dire straights on the battlefield of Asia. If he could come up with a solution that would save his life, would that not be a good thing. No doubt about it.
Next you take two groups of people. One you dose up optimally and the other you do not. Put them on the treadmill for three months. In three months the group with the optimum dose of vitamin D was stronger and could go longer on the treadmill than the other group. This was done with a group of elderly people in a nursing home. Stronger means less falls etc. Not a bad thing and I have seen the same kind of studies done in athletes. Did you know the Russians were dosing their atheletes, for the Olympics, with vitamin D. They did other things also, not legal, but that is another story.
Two seasons ago the Black Hawks Hockey team won the Stanley cup. They changed just one thing. They started taking vitamin D and saw less serious injury, less pain treatment, and sickness. This after being non competitive the previous season.
The facts are that vitamin D goes to 2,000 to 3000 genes that are good for health and in the process turning off bad things like cancer and reducing the likely hood of viral and bacterial infections. Do I know anybody that would not benefit from addressing the proper dosing of vitamin D. The answer is no, but there maybe a life guard, some where, that works year around and is exposed to the sun at least 20 minutes a day and is under the age of fifty. This guy or gal would have a optimum level. Above the age of fifty the ability to make use of the sun in a adequate way is diminished, and if you are black your time in the sun will need to be up to five times longer to get that optimum dose. Black skin protects you from sun damage of the skin. Not a concern in people who where clothes and live in a temperate climate. Proper dosing is 1k per 25 lbs. Test in three months. Read my "about" on this blog. It addresses other concerns with need to be addressed also.
What is the real subject here? Simple, we all suffer from the effects of living in civilization which has deprived us of essential nutrients. We suffer severally for this!
