"Welcome to what I consider to be one of Credence’s most pivotal briefing packs. Over the past 26 years that I have reported on health matters, scarcely a more fundamental issue has come across my desk than the new scientific research on vitamin D. By way of review, vitamin D has historically been sidelined as a nutrient whose deficiencies promulgated the old medieval problems such as soft bones, rickets and osteoporosis. In the last two years, however, stunning studies have completely changed our understanding of what this nutrient is, how it works in the body, how it works in synergy with other elements, and what the implications are both for its deficiency and optimisation.
This booklet is a useful round-up of what the experts are currently saying about vitamin D. Our study here will also open up the microcosm of the human condition; the incredible intricacies of the cell; the relationship of light to human health; how the body has been uniquely designed to process sunlight in optimal amounts to prevent disease and even fix us when we are sick. Hopefully among the useful insights you will take away from this booklet will be a humble appreciation of how intricately ordered and finely tuned our Earthly condition is, and what we can do to enhance not only our own health and wellbeing, but those of our loved ones and friends who will listen. Read on and be amazed."
“Current research has implicated vitamin D deficiency as a major factor in the pathology of at least 17 varieties of cancer as well as heart disease, stroke, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, depression, chronic pain, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, muscle wasting, birth defects, periodontal disease, and more.”
– The Vitamin D Council
“Because vitamin D is so cheap and so clearly reduces all-cause mortality, I can say this with great certainty: Vitamin D represents the single most cost-effective medical intervention in the United States.”
- Dr. Greg Plotnikoff, Medical Director, Penny George Institute for Health and Healing, Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis.
“Sunlight is more powerful than any drug; it is safe, effective, and available free of charge. If it could be patented, it would be hyped as the greatest medical breakthrough in history. It’s that good.”
– Mike Adams, author
“This is like the Holy Grail of cancer medicine; vitamin D produced a drop in cancer rates greater than that for quitting smoking, or indeed any other countermeasure in existence.”
- Dennis Mangan, clinical laboratory scientist
“In all my many years of practice of medicine, I’ve never seen one vitamin, even vitamin C, have such profound effects on human health.”
– Dr Soram Khalsa, board-certified internist and medical director for the East-West Medical Research Institute
“Vitamin D insufficiency and deficiency is a worldwide public health problem in both developed and developing nations.... Nearly one billion people worldwide are deficient.”
