Journal of the American Medical Association-Neurology, September 15, 2015
Older adults with deficiencies in vitamin D experience more rapid cognitive decline over time than those with adequate vitamin D levels.

Common sunscreen chemicals disrupt hormones, can lead to endometriosis and low sperm count

By Johnson: (NaturalNews) There's a lot of fear and misunderstanding when it comes to the sun. Afraid of being burned, consumers are quick to lather on sunscreen chemicals to block out the sun's rays. This is done without understanding what these chemicals are and what they do to the body's natural hormone levels. It's also very easy to neglect the importance of daily sunlight exposure. To maintain a healthy immune system, one should embrace 15-30 minutes of sun exposure each day, instead of avoiding it.

Is the CDC inflating influenza death statistics by ignoring vitamin D deficiencies?

By Gutierrez:(NaturalNews) It is well established that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) dramatically inflates the numbers of people who are killed each year by the flu, seemingly in order to push the influenza vaccine. But in its haste to promote vaccination, the CDC may be overlooking a potentially major contributor to not only rates of influenza infection, but to actual deaths from respiratory infections: vitamin D deficiency.

Vitamin D reduces inflammation, improves prostate cancer in 60% of men

BY Gutierrez: (NaturalNews) Doses of vitamin D equivalent to those from daily sun exposure were able to slow and even cure low-grade prostate cancer in a new study conducted by researchers from the Medical University of South Carolina and presented at the annual meeting of the American Chemical Society in Denver on March 23.

"We're treating these guys with normal body levels of vitamin D," lead researcher Bruce Hollis said. "We haven't even moved into the pharmacological levels yet."

Natural licorice compound helps the body protect skin from sun damage

By Gutierrez: (NaturalNews) A chemical extracted from licorice root may help protect the skin from the damage caused by the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation - without blocking that radiation and interfering with vitamin D synthesis - according to a study conducted by researchers from Beiersdorf AG in Germany and published in the journal Experimental Dermatology in January.

Vitamin D deficiency during childhood can lead to atherosclerosis

By Heyes: NaturalNews) Just as the "cholesterol causes clogged arteries" myth is finally being put to rest, a new study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism reveals what may be a much more likely cause of modern heart disease: inadequate vitamin D intake.

Researchers from Finland found that adults who had low vitamin D levels during their adolescent and teen years are much more likely to suffer artery hardening and heart disease as adults compared to others who had adequate or optimal vitamin D levels growing up.
