Study casts doubt on whether extra vitamin D prevents disease

Reuters, December 6, 2013.

Researchers cast doubt on the prevailing wisdom that vitamin D supplements can prevent conditions like cancer, diabetes and heart disease, saying today low vitamin D may be a consequence, not a cause, of ill health.
The findings could have implications for millions of people who take vitamin D pills and other supplements to ward off illness - Americans spend an estimated $600 million (RM1.9 billion) a year on them alone.

That's interesting.... gonna have to re-assess any potential benefits.   Tooo many contradictory studies out there... it's good for you, it's bad for you, it does nothing... oy vey.

Not only on Vitamin D but everything.

Considering where you live, Vitamin D will probably never be a concern. :yes:

Haha!   You are right!  I don't take any extra for that very reason!

This is sooo true, LL. With media bandwagons and doctors who sell stuff in their office, magazine articles that repeat through every magazine, the popularity/profit of any "health" book, etc.

I have found some just as credible counter arguments for so much we are told.
It is troubling and confusing.

Keep your eyes wide open and don't run!

P.S. Just to be clear, because sometimes I am not. I do not believe...
in the existence of a large previously unknown undiscovered hairy biped roaming North America.
But I like to hear the accounts, read the books, watch the shows, discuss and argue about the phenomenon.
