More Vitamin D support

From the Mercola.com e newsletter

“Based on this research, it now appears as though most adults need about 8,000 IU’s of vitamin D a day in order to get their serum levels above 40 ng/ml.  Not only is this significantly higher than previously recommended, but this also means that even if you donot regularly monitor your vitamin D levels, your risk of overdosing is going to be fairly slim, even if you take as much as 8,000 IU’s a day. This is the type of vital information that is so sorely needed, and GrassrootsHealth is really serving an unprecedented service to all of mankind for facilitating this much needed research.”

Genetically Modified Food

Posted in Nutrition, Random Thoughts with tags , , on January 12, 2011 by mboyle1959

I’d love to hear some opinions from readers who have strong nutrition backgrounds. As many of our readers know I am a big fan of Dr. Mercola. He seems to be a lone sane voice in the insane world of food. Is he right about genetically modified foods or is he slanting the research? Read this and let me know what you think. It scares the heck out of me.
