When You See the Sun A’Risin’

Filed under: News — lmwalker @ 12:04 pm

A daily dose of vitamin D could cut the risk of cancers of the breast, colon and ovary by up to a half, a 40-year review of research has found . . .

A growing body of evidence in recent years has shown that lack of vitamin D may have lethal effects. Heart disease, lung disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, schizophrenia and multiple sclerosis are among the conditions in which it is believed to play a vital role. The vitamin is also essential for bone health and protects against rickets in children and osteoporosis in the elderly.

Egads. Please make sure to ingest your Vitamin D and get some sun. The new recommendation is 25 micrograms a day.
