The ignorance by the medical community continues. Please keep in mind that nutrition is not taught to our Medical Doctors. What they know is what they learn on their own from reading or taking a course independent of medical school. Those that are knowledgeable are very knowledgeable and I quote and refer to them often in my blogs by links. I respect these people because they have applied their vast knowledge to prevention!
Yet again I have run across a person quoting a health provider that proved the ignorance that is out there. A person I was telling about vitamin D said, my health provider said there is no use taking so much vitamin D as you will just pee out the excess. To make a statement like that is to show a complete ignorance of vitamins and vitamin D. Only a water soluble vitamin can be eliminated by urination if it is not needed. Vitamin D ( again it is a pro hormone) is fat soluble and therefore does not get eliminated in urine. I do not have a clue on how to educated educated people who should know their limitations, except to say knowledgeable patients can do it.
So now the study which is in rats. Is it proof? No it is not, but it is yet another indicator, of many, the benefits that are very very likely to follow optimizing your vitamin D level. Those who worry about cirrhosis or liver disease will find this especially interesting.
