4 Reasons why Vitamin D levels are crashing


1) Less sunshine

Air conditioning is more available than in the past
Indoor work
indoors more to stay away from air pollution
Indoors due to fear of skin cancer with sun exposure
Indoors more to use the internet

2) Less from Food

Direct Reasons:
4 X less Vitamin D from farmed fish
3 X less Vitamin D from chickens, pork, etc, raised indoors
2 X less Vitamin D from low-fat milk is less bioavailable than whole milk
Indirect Reasons:
More Omega-6 - which blocks Omega-3 needed to get Vitamin D to cells
Roundup In food decreases both Vitamin D and Magnesium (needed to process Vitamin D)

3) Decrease in nutrients decreases Vitamin D

30% less Vitamin D response in blood if low Omega-3 *
20% less Vitamin D getting to cells if low Magnesium *
10% less Vitamin D getting to cells if low Zinc *
   * Estimates are based on multiple studies across a variety of health conditions

4) Higher % of population with low Vitamin D

- - Obese, elderly, dark skin, poor health/chronic pain

Obese need 2X to 3X more vitamin D to get the same response to vitamin D - and more are now obese
Seniors need 3X more vitamin D from the sun to get the same response - and more are now elderly
Seniors have degraded Vitamin D Receptors - so less vitamin D gets to senior cells
40% of seniors have liver problems, which results in lower levels of vitamin D in the blood
People with dark skins need 3X to 5X more vitamin D from the sun than whites - and now only about 50% of US have white skins
Many health problems appear to consume Vitamin D. Examples: Diabetes, Depression
