YouTube - Dr. John Cannell on vitamin D

Dr. John Cannell suggests that Vitamin D will deter flu virus better than a flu shot. This is interesting!

The physicians I work with AND my own family has been saying this and practicing this for years. It works. It's true.

I've been trying to get people to understand this stuff on CDF for a while now.

It will be dismissed. It's a waste of time unfortunately

It won't be dismissed by ME, that's for sure.

Where do you get yours and how much do you take?

I get mine from Dr. Eisenstein. I have been taking 3,000IU in the summer and 5000IU in the winter for years. My levels are at about 54 ISH.

When I was pregnant I took 10,000 and while nursing.

My baby while nursing took 1000IU and now that she is not nursing and she is 17 months she takes 2000IU a day.

We get some of our D from Cod Liver Oil but try not to rely on the FORTIFIED foods.

According to the last conference call I was on with a leading micro-biologist who was providing information. We should have our Vitamin D (VD) serum level tested and maintain 60 ng/ml for cancer fighting/anti-cancer activity. Less than 60ng/ml doesn't have the effectiveness against cancer. LabCorp is the best place today for VD lab work. VD is still new for most doctors; understanding the amount to optimize the VD serum was the question and 60ng/ml is the answer.
(Some people can absorb VD easier than others and may or may not need to complement their diet with over-the-counter, (OTC) VD.) People who live near the equator received more UVB than those north of San Francisco.

VD3 is the higher bio-available OTC one. Brand names do not matter for VD3. Standardized or guaranteed potency matters.
The VD that uses nanotechnology is typically a spray under the tongue. Absorption is immediate with nanotechnology, (some dislike pills)

Interesting!! Thank You Apples&Oranges!! (Just took my 5000IU D3...) I got mine from www.LEF.org (Life Extension Foundation) LEF also has searchable research and articles available at the site. Dr Mercola's site has much research, articles, etc, available as well. Whew -- I was thinking Mr. Sunshine was 'evil' or something (the way we slather on sunscreen!) - but maybe not. And I always did wonder why my dog heads for a patch of sunshine first thing every morning.... Thanks again.
