More Evidence On The Importance Of Vitamin D For Our Health!

My topics cover a vast multitude of subjects. People know that I have been after criminal Zionism, and their criminal state of Israel, for a very long time and was one who fingered Israel for the attacks of 9-11 very early on. Others have noted my attacks on corrupt government, and who controls governments (hint: It is NOT the people who actually vote for them!). I have also been all over the Apollo Moon Hoax for a lot longer than when I first launched my blogs over the net, knowing full well that NASA has been lying to people for over 40 years now, and that we have NEVER put men on the moon to this day! My other blogs cover health concerns, and how we are being weakened by the poisons introduced into our environments and our own foods.

Right now, I want to cover again the importance of taking Vitamin D supplements for our better health. For months I proposed that people do NOT take any vaccines against the Flu, but instead reinforce their body's own defences and better health by taking up to 5000 IU of Vitamin D, especially during winter months, when our exposure to natural sunlight is restricted. Right here and right now, I want to present another article that backs up many claims about the importance of Vitamin D, including my own research. It comes from the Times Online News Service at www.timesonline.co.uk, and is a must read. Here is that article:

Top up Vitamin D in the sun or pop a supplement, say researchers


David Rose, Health Correspondent




Britons should not shy away from sunshine in summer and should take a daily supplement of vitamin D in winter in order to address serious levels of deficiency, experts say.

Leading doctors and researchers said that more than 60 per cent of the population have “sub-optimal” levels of the vitamin, with the problem being worse in Scotland, the North of England and among ethnic minorities.

Ahead of a major conference on vitamin D and health in London next week, they said people are putting their health at risk because they spend too little time in the sun, possibly because of fears over skin cancer.

Vitamin D, produced naturally when the skin is exposed to sunlight, plays a key role in strengthening bones and can help prevent fractures in the elderly. But there is emerging evidence that it can help prevent a range of other conditions, including asthma, type 2 diabetes and multiple sclerosis.

It is also found in a small number of foods, including oily fish, liver and egg yolks, and the Food Standards Agency (FSA) insists that “most people should be able to get all the vitamin D they need from their diet and by getting a little sun”.

Researchers from University College London and others said that everyone should get at least 15 minutes of sunshine a day, if necessary by postponing putting on sun cream until after they venture out.

They should also take a supplement from the autumn to April or May, to compensate for lack of sunshine during winter months.

Barbara Boucher, an emeritus researcher at Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, said that taking 10 micrograms (400 international units) of vitamin D each day could “do no harm” and would help raise blood levels of vitamin D.

But she criticised health supplement manufacturers for not providing affordable vitamin D-only pills. Most people can only buy multi-vitamin supplements, which may lead to them taking in too much vitamin A.

Dr Boucher added that concerns over skin cancer are also having an effect, because people fear spending too much time in the sun.

“You’ve not to be afraid of time in the sun,” she added. “Some people think five minutes in the sun will put ten or twenty years on their appearance and will give you ten melanomas. It isn’t quite like that.

“Melanoma is a deadly disease. We do worry so much, but it's sensible to be sensible about it. Don’t be afraid to have a moderate amount of sunshine so long as you don’t get burnt.”

Recent studies indicate that vitamin D supplements could help asthma sufferers who do not respond to the usual steroid treatment, while others say it can protect against bowel cancer and heart disease.

But Adrian Martineau, a doctor at Barts who is investigating how vitamin D might boost the body’s defences against tuberculosis, said that further trials were necessary before high-dose supplementation could be recommended.

The FSA said that only some groups of the population should take a supplement of 10 micrograms per day, including pregnant or breastfeeding women, elderly people and those who cover their skin a lot for cultural or religious reasons or who don’t get much sunlight.


NTS Notes: One of the reasons why people these days are in such poor health definitely does stem from our lack of natural sunlight exposure. There are many proponents that have always claimed that sitting in the sun is bad for our health, but I say that is BS. The fear of melanoma is noted in this article, but moderate exposure to sunlight will not harm you and can only contribute to your better health.

Articles such as this one only back up my long standing request that readers get out more and enjoy the sun! If you cannot get enough sunlight, then top off your Vitamin D intake with Vitamin D supplements for your better health.

Is it time to get out and purchase Vitamin D supplements? No time like the present....

More to come
