Sometime ago, I wrote to the editor of a well known health newsletter and included materials on the MP.  I verified he received it, but never heard another word.  Quite honestly, I was discouraged.

Fast forward to November 2011 when I visited my optometric office and my Dr. told of going to Continuing Education classes where this same editor was the guest speaker.  The editor informed the students not to suggest supplementing any vitamins until more is known.

I write this anecdote to encourage our cohort.  One never knows who will eventually hear our message.

"Say not the struggle nought availeth,
The labour and the wounds are vain,
The enemy faints not, nor faileth,
And as things have been, things remain.

For while the tired waves vainly breaking
Seem here no painful inch to gain,
Far back, through creeks and inlets making,
Comes silent, flooding in, the main. "

1862

Thankyou wikipedia,  and Sherry :D

Run away kids! It's another Vitamin D pusher:



Btw, that's 100 doses of 1000IU for 7.95 (euro). I actually backed away from the counter in my pharmacy when I saw this.
(They also sell lots of candy and chocolate at the pharmacy counter, which I found weird).

This was the headline item on the 'Breakfast' program this morning. Lot of sabre rattling going on in the UK at the moment, even talk of fortifying milk and orange juice like they do in the USA:

Hmmm... Interesting. I had missed that Denmark had begun fortifying milk...

I note that two of the biomarkers used to infer health status in the D/O3 Health Study, are blood pressure and rate of infections. Since blood pressure in chronic disease is often lowered by LPS and immunosuppression with vitamin D will hide symptomatic evidence of infection, I imagine the study's conclusions may at the least be distorted and at worst be totally invalid.

Vitamin D: A double-edged sword in the fight against osteoporosis?

http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2012-04/joci-vda041812.php

"In this month's issue of JCI, Dr. Geert Carmeliet and colleagues at the University of Leuven in Leuven, Belgium, investigated how vitamin D affects the skeleton when serum calcium levels are depleted. Using mice that lack the intestinal vitamin D receptor, the researchers showed that the mice still had normal serum calcium levels even when given a low-calcium diet. Additional experiments demonstrated that vitamin D stimulated bone cells to produce factors that removed calcium from bone in a process known as bone resorption in order to maintain normal serum calcium levels. Thus, while vitamin D is important for maintaining serum calcium levels, it can also promote bone density loss"

Bane,

Excellent find.  Take a bow!

This fits in with my experience:  since I've been on the MP, my bone loss has slowed.

Expert advises against high doses of supplements

http://tiny.cc/ounsdw

"That vitamin D and calcium you're taking could be causing more harm than good, a new article in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute says"

"Jacobs said the authors are not trying to say people who take supplements will get cancer. But she cautions about taking megadoses like 10,000 I.U.s of vitamin D per day, for example"


"Undoubtedly, use is driven by a common belief that supplements can improve health and protect against disease, and that at worst, they are harmless," the scientists write. "However, the assumption that any dietary supplement is safe under all circumstances and in all quantities is no longer empirically reasonable."



"Folic acid is recommended for women considering pregnancy, but it is an example of a supplement that could be harmful for people who don't need it, Jacobs said"

This is showing as one of those extra-wide threads (in Chrome browser). Does anyone know how to fix it?
