A paper has just been published in 'Allergy, Asthma & Clinical Immunology'
"Introduction of oral vitamin D supplementation and the rise of the allergy pandemic"

Amy has written a letter to the editor, and it has been posted at:

Congratulations Amy :) :) :)

(and thanks to Geir for alerting us to this paper :) )

Way to go Amy... getting that excellent comment posted so quickly! 

The evidence appears to be building towards a realization that vitamin D is NOT a simple vitamin IN and benefit OUT type relationship!  Hopefully mainstream medicine will wake up soon and we can get the extra vitamin D out of our food supply. 

I know that my allergies have gotten progressively worse the past 10 years, before I started on the MP, when I also began to supplement with fish oil and vitamin D.  Of course this is totally anecdotal ... but this paper gives credence to a connection between the two.

Thanks for keeping us so well informed Dr Marshall   :D

I wonder why no works from Marshall, Proal, Blaney, Perez, Waterhouse were cited. Too controversial?

I have never understood the relationship between Rickets and Vitamin D.

Is Rickets a form of Th-1 illness that Vitamin D suppressed?

A report of a study about allergies becoming more commonplace in children - but attributing nothing of this to vitamin D supplementation though.,0,7452917.story

Maybe someone should alert these researchers to the study that has kicked off this forum.

I heard Professor Fiona  Stanley, I think the name is, but  was Australian of the Year this year, say on radio that (I paraphrase)... With all we know about looking after children they are still getting sick quicker than we can find cures.
