Vitamin D3 Data

OK, listen up. If you only read one post of mine this year, read this one. If you act on it it will reduce your cancer risk by 77% as well as reduce your risk of many other ills and ails.
A good friend posted a link for my benefit on the merits of vitamin D.

This is what I replied to her. Take note well. It is great data! And less than two pages out of the 466 pages now in my book on how to live the healthiest life:
A bit over cautious and underplayed compared to the other data I have seen on the subject. Their recommended max is 4,000 IU a day whereas I have seen reports that up to 50,000 IU of D3, (NOT D2, that is far more toxic at much lower doses) per day is fine.
Here is a good link to the caliber of data I am used to seeing on the subject of D3:

Additional data from my book that is not included in the slide show:
Vitamin D3 has been found to increase the effectiveness of the immune system by 3 to 5 fold and protect against H5N1 (bird flu) and cancer:
and
Vitamin D3 supplementation has been shown to lower the cancer rate by 77%.
and
The body makes vitamin D from the sun’s UV B rays. These cannot penetrate the earth’s atmosphere unless the sun is high in the sky. So to get your daily dose of D from the sun, get outdoors for 5-10 minutes a day between 11:00am and 2:00pm in the summer with as much bare skin as is comfortable, moral and legal. In the winter, consider taking a vitamin D3 supplement.
and
The more vitamin D3 you take in, the more the Alzheimer’s linked peptide, beta amyloid, is removed from the brain. So soak up those rays (without burning) and enjoy the grapes!
and from my book, a contrary datum to that quoted in the slide show about large doses of D3 increasing the risk of prostate cancer is this:
I’m glad you brought up silver. A colleague of mine is currently working with a cardiologist in San Francisco who has developed a successful therapy for heart attacks and strokes using a regimen of Patis 30 (30 ppm) nanosilver hydrosol, combined with large dose vitamin D3 (50,000 iu daily). This is being applied as prophylaxis for those at high risk, and also as post coronary/stroke therapy. An observed side benefit is the complete remission of his patients who were also suffering from prostate cancer.
and
This graph shows the reduced incidence of a number of diseases correspondent with increased levels of vitamin D in the blood. There is a wonderful presentation on vitamin D available at:

Some further data:
Another thing of which one needs to be acutely aware in relation to Vitamin D is that Vitamin A and D are both absorbed by the same receptor in the digestive tract and that A is given preference. If A is present it will be absorbed and the D won’t. So if you think you are getting all the D you need from your cod liver oil, chances are you are completely mistaken. So if you are taking vitamin A, it should be consumed at a different time of the day to your vitamin D.
To quote this page: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/03/16/warning-new-proof-confirms-if-you-take-this-supplement-vitamin-d-will-not-work-as-well.aspx
This is the largest study to date showing vitamin A blocks vitamin D’s effect.
Hidden on page eight of the paper was one sentence and a small table, showing that the benefits of vitamin D are almost entirely negated in those with the highest vitamin A (retinol) intake.
And the retinol intake did not have to be that high — only about 3,000 IU/day. Young autistic children often take 3,500 IU of retinol a day in their powdered multivitamins, which doesn’t count any additional vitamin A given in high single doses.
The finding explains some of the anomalies in other papers on vitamin D and cancer — similar studies sometimes have widely different results. This may be because the effect of vitamin A was not taken into account. In some countries, cod liver oil, which contains vitamin A, is commonly used as a vitamin D supplement, and in others it is used more rarely, causing differences in the results.
