I think that these letters illustrate perfectly the points I was trying to make in my paper. It is beyond my comprehension that one could argue, as Dr Boucher has done, based solely on an evidence base which science has now shown to be flawed.

Mr Grant and Mr Garland should talk firsthand with people from this site.My family has been off of all D for over 2 years now,and the incidence of colds and flu has been virtually nonexistant this winter,as I've stated elsewhere on this site. The couple of times they did catch the sniffles this year it was over within 1-2 days.Our pediatrician has commented that our children(4 of them) have become "lean and mean".

In March 2007, I started avoiding V D sources. I no more complain of the cough since then.
