Vitamin D has been getting a heck of a lot of press lately. And with vitamin D deficiency growing out of control—fueled by two decades of the mainstream hysteria over the “dangers of sunshine” causing people to spend less and less time outdoors—frankly, it’s well past time that it did.
Two studies presented at the Endocrine Society’s annual meeting have linked a lack of this vital vitamin to metabolic syndrome and diabetes.
90% of diabetes patients were D deficient
Researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, here in Baltimore, say that, shockingly, over 90% of the Type II diabetic patients they looked at in their study were deficient in vitamin D.
And adding strength to the D and diabetes connection was the finding that those with the lowest levels of the vitamin were most likely to have the highest blood-sugar levels.
The second study, out of Amsterdam, focused on seniors over 65. Researchers found that about half of the study participants were vitamin D deficient and that 37 percent of them had the prediabetic condition known as metabolic syndrome.
A closer look at the findings revealed that those with a D deficiency were more likely to have the syndrome than those without a deficiency.
Giving exposure to the benefits of sun exposure
It should be blazing clear by now that we’ve been steered down the wrong road, driven by the mainstream’s anti-sun propaganda.
The number one single best source of vitamin D is sunshine. And to stay healthy, we should plan to get a little unblocked exposure at least three days a week.
The name of the game is common sense. Just a few minutes (10 to 15) of sun…don’t bake or burn…should do it.
You can also increase vitamin D through your diet by eating more…
- wild caught salmon,
- egg yolks,
- and beef liver.
Or taking a vitamin D supplement or swallowing a D-packed tablespoon of cod-liver oil every day (yup, just like grandma used to recommend) can be a good alternative, especially as we age.
