The importance of Vitamin D3 supplementation to protect against colds and flus

Recent findings have revealed that most Americans are deficient in vitamin D (the sunshine vitamin) with consequences more serious than most of us have thought. Dr. John J. Cannell found that his patients did not get influenza, while all the wards around those of his patients, were “involved in fighting the influenza epidemic in our hospital.” He noted that “All of the patients on my ward had been taking 2,000 units of vitamin D every day”.



Dr. T. Colin Campbell in his monumental book, The China Study,
considered to be the most significant study ever performed on the relationship between diet to disease, has Appendix C documenting
how Vitamin D works and what the mechanism is for helping the body
ward off diseases. It lines up perfectly with Dr. Cannell’s findings regarding influenza.



The correlation of diseases with vitamin D deficiency is, indeed, far reaching and include, besides influenza, according to Dr. Campbell, “Type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, breast cancer, prostate cancer, and colon cancer in addition to other diseases.



Vitamin D is generated in the body when the sun’s ultraviolet B-band (UVB) radiates the skin. Twenty minutes of direct summer sun bathing yields about 20,000 IU of vitamin D, as Dr. Julian Whitaker points out in his October 2007 newsletter. However, he goes on to say,
“You could sunbathe on the top of the Sears Tower in Chicago in a sunny winter day and produce virtually none, thanks to the angle of the sun, which filters out the UVB.” Hence many of the above diseases have a high correlation both with high latitude countries
and as well as with the seasons.
