The Importance of Vitamin D for Optimal Health

Carole Baggerly, Director, 

Vitamin D is the current "miracle" compound. The health benefits of vitamin D include reduced risk of about 20 types of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, infectious diseases (including influenza and pneumonia), autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, 75 other types of disease, and improved pregnancy outcomes. Optimal vitamin D intake or production levels are about 10 times the current recommended values. Baggerly will present examples of the current science that impacts health as well as her own role in leading a grassroots public health movement to change the status quo of the medical establishment.
