60 percent of Americans are vitamin D deficient

The Vitamin D Cure aims to change that

You read that right. Research tell us that the majority of Americans are deficient in this essential vitamin. The research is also making it increasingly clear how dangerous vitamin D deficiency is. It’s been linked to heightened risk of many types of cancers; arthritis; autoimmune diseases, like multiple sclerosis and lupus; diabetes; heart disease; obesity; and hypertension.

That’s why rheumatologist James E. Dowd, M.D., says that “Physicians should check vitamin D levels as routinely as they check cholesterol levels and blood pressure.” It’s also why he wrote The Vitamin D Cure (Wiley, January 2008, hardcover, $24.95).

In this urgently needed book he shows you how to make the simple dietary and lifestyle changes that can boost vitamin D levels and get you in peak health. Here’s just some of what you’ll find in The Vitamin D Cure.
