Vitamin D is becoming the ''it'' vitamin as it helps to combat cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease and now diabete's according to a new study at Loyola University Chicago as their research shows that taking adequate levels helps to prevent diabete's.

The sun is so essential for Vit D3 so anyone living in the North is def not getting enough exposure. My multi has D3 in it. Wonder how long it will take for all the studies to come out saying D3 is useless...lol

Well, here's a start for ya:

Vitamin D Deficiency Study Raises New Questions About Disease And Supplements

Quote:
"We need to discard the notion that vitamin D affects a disease state in a simple way," Marshall said. "Vitamin D affects the expression of over 1,000 genes, so we should not expect a simplistic cause and effect between vitamin D supplementation and disease. The comprehensive studies are just not showing that supplementary vitamin D makes people healthier."
(I am no way disagreeing with you, by the way... but vitamin D is becoming too well-known as a preventative measure... what if people stop asking their doctors for prescriptions??? Aaaak, better nip this one in the bud!)

My Rhuematologist tested me for a D defiency and I was found to be extremely low. I started taking a large dose of D3 and a lot of my pain was relieved. When I quit taking it, out of laziness I might add, my pain increased. Seems pretty simple to me.

If you live where the sun is not out much in the winter, does a tanning bed give the same effects as the sun?

It's the sun's UVB striking the skin component 7-Dehydrocholesterol that produces D3 .

A tanning salon here in Seattle has been advertising that tanning there will help you get your Vitamin D. Not sure if this is a valid claim or not.
