Health Problems and Vitamin D - association, prevention, and treatment

Better health is ASSOCIATED with more Vitamin D

Data from Grassroots Health

derived from Grassroots 2013
Pregnancy problems reduced GRH 2015

Mortality reduced

Asthma is worse with lower Vitamin D

The worse the bronchial asthma, the lower the vitamin D – Jan 2017

20 ng of Vitamin D stops Rickets,
   but many health problems need much more

Vitamin D levels needed  at is.gd/neonate_vitD

More likely to survive Heart Failure

see wikipage http://www.vitamindwiki.com/tiki-index.php?page_id=2381

The relationship is far more than an association
   Intervention has proven that Vitamin D prevents/treats 80+ health problems
     Intervention = take some and see what happens

Proof that Vitamin D Works - list of health problems as of Aug 2017

One pill every two weeks gives you all the vitamin D most adults need

50,000 IU Vitamin D pill every two weeks gets most (80%) health people to 40 ng

Is 50 ng of vitamin D too high, just right, or not enough
