D Day Tuesday


Results from a clinical review published in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association find nearly 1 billion people worldwide may have deficient or insufficient levels of vitamin D due to chronic disease and inadequate sun exposure related to sunscreen use.

The study also found that 95 percent of African American adults may have vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency. Vitamin D variations among races are attributed to differences in skin pigmentation.

“People are spending less time outside and, when they do go out, they’re typically wearing sunscreen, which essentially nullifies the body’s ability to produce vitamin D,” said Kim Pfotenhauer, DO, assistant professor at Touro University and a researcher on this study. “While we want people to protect themselves against skin cancer, there are healthy, moderate levels of unprotected sun exposure that can be very helpful in boosting vitamin D.”

    As a Vit D deficient person I would tell you that a supplement of D every morning will make a BIG difference for those like me if you are deficient, if not, it won’t be noticeable.

    Try it and see D3. 🙂

    TVD bridge route in a slow 56 minutes. A hawk flying from hither to yon. A Mallard drake flying from yon to hither. Two crows to greet me home.

    Day 3: 68+56=124 minutes.

    Starting a prednisone taper tomorrow for the eczema. Powerful, kind of nasty stuff, badly needed though.
