Know Your Vitamin D Number test

Vitamin D-3 5000 IU - 120 Softgels - Web

You know your height and weight. You probably have a rough idea about your cholesterol number and what it should be. You might know your blood pressure. But there’s another number that most people don’t know, but should.

That number is your 25 hydroxy vitamin D level. Modern Americans avoid sun exposure in an effort to avoid wrinkles and skin cancer. But skipping the sunshine means that they don’t make enough vitamin D. Many studies have now established that the lower your vitamin D, the higher your risk of cancer, autoimmune disease, and premature death.

Vitamin D & the Law of Unintended Consequences

By Dr. Jerry Mixon October 23, 2012

In medicine as in so many walks of life, one thing we have to learn over and over is the law of unintended consequences. A series of new studies about vitamin D proves this in spades!

For many years, medical societies and government committees have warned us all to avoid sun exposure as much as possible. These same experts have cautioned us to use sunscreens on a daily basis to minimize the amount of inadvertent sun exposure we get in our day-to-day lives.
