Vitamin D – what is healthy? Not what your doctor is likely to tell you – unless your doctor is ahead of the curve. To prevent 75% of Breast and Colon Cancer University of California recommend >40ng/ml or 100nmol/L and 50 – 70 ng/ml is optimal (125 – 175 nmol/L) – look at the presentation for the scientific research behind this.
UPDATE: Due to the traffic generated by the articles I have written about Vitamin D3 I have launched a dedicated site www.D3swineflu.com which concentrates on the immune effects of supplementation. That is the best place to look for further information as for the time being I will concentrate my writings on this subject there.
A new site www.D3forhealth.com will be launched as soon as I have time to bring together the research regarding D3 and other health aspects.
“No one should take the swine flu vaccine–it is one of the most dangerous vaccines ever devised. It contains an immune adjuvant called squalene (MF-59) which has been shown to cause severe autoimmune disorders such as MS, rheumatoid arthritis and Lupus. This is the vaccine adjuvant that is strongly linked to the Gulf War syndrome, which killed over 10,000 soldiers and caused a 200% increase in the fatal disease ALS (Lou Gehreg disease). This virus H1N1 kills by causing a “cytokine storm”, which means that it cause the body’s immune system to overreact and that is why it is killing young people and is a mild disease in the elderly. (The elderly have weakened immune systems.) This vaccine is a very powerful immune stimulator and carries the real possibility of making the l ethality of the virus much greater.
One’s best protection is vitamin D3. One should take 5000 IU a day now and when the disease begins to spread increase the dose to 15,000 IU a day. Vitamin D3 modulates the immune reaction, reducing the chance of an overreaction and stimulates the body to produce what are called antimicrobial peptides, which are powerful killers of viruses that does not involve immunity. This is dose related, which means the higher the dose of vitamin D3 the better the protection. Fish oils (the best is Carlson’s Norwegian lemon flavored fish oil) also reduce immune overreaction. One teaspoon a day should be sufficient. For severe symptoms, one teaspoon twice a day. Antioxidants of various kinds also help–this includes, quercetin, curcumin, grapeseed extract, vitamin C and natural vitamin E. A good multivitamin/mineral such as Extend Core (http://www.vrp.com/) is also essential.
Feel free to spread this around. People need to know how to protect themselves.

UPDATE: D3SwineFlu.com launched. All future info on D3 will be published there.
D3 is a potent hormone which acts on many body systems.
70 per cent or so – more than 1 in 3 westerners do not have enough in their bodies. This is because of modern living and hence this widespread shortage of “Vitamin” D3 is causally associated with many widespread modern diseases such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, asthma and other allergies and auto-imune diseases.
Nothing gets worse quicker than if you starve the body of Vitamin D3 and if you feed it D3 the body stays well. Of course a balanced diet and trips to your physician do not replace a simple supplement. But they can help.
Get your serum D3 measured by the doc and aim for something around the 90 level. Take supplements to keep to that. In spring start taking the sun in moderate dose so you build a healthy tan whilst never burning.
Avoid sunscreen. It does not lead to healthy habits with the sun or stop skin cancer and it does stop D3 production. So in the summer, if you do this, reduce your supplementation. Take repeat blood tests.
D3 shortage is also associated with depression, seasonal affectve disorder and schizophrenia.
Index of articles written to date on D3:
A visit to my doctor shocked me …
All pregnant Asian women in the UK have healthier babies when supplemented with D3 .. published in 1980 .. and still they do not recommend supplementation for Asian women ….
1 from 125 standing residents of a neurological facility in Wisconsis got ILI (Influenza Like illness – possibly Swine flu, in this case confirmed).
Yet 114 out of 803 staff contracted ILI. Many were confirmed to have Swine Flu. The difference? The patients were regularly monitored for D3 blood levels and supplemented .. whilst the staff were not …. And some conspiracy stuff about Swine Flu …
Another physician confirms D3 supplementation lead to a total absense of Swine Flu in her patients whilst a doctor sharing the office was innundated with cases …
The first piece that pulled together all the stuff I found in a rather random way … BUT .. it has a great VIDEO PLAYLIST that will inform you well.
D3 and Swine Flu: Proof Of Benefits From US Medical Centre And Testimony Of The Dangers of Vaccination
I am not a doctor but these people are:
Dear Dr. Cannell:
Your recent newsletters and video about Swine flu (H1N1)
prompted me to convey our recent experience with an H1N1 outbreak at Central Wisconsin Center (CWC). Unfortunately, the state epidemiologist was not interested in studying it further so I pass it on to you since I think it is noteworthy.
CWC is a long-term care facility for people with developmental disabilities, home for approx. 275 people with approx. 800 staff. Serum 25-OHD has been monitored in virtually all residents for several years and patients supplemented with vitamin D.
In June, 2009, at the time of the well-publicized Wisconsin spike in H1N1 cases, two residents developed influenza-like illness (ILI) and had positive tests for H1N1: one was a long-term resident; the other, a child, was transferred to us with what was later proven to be H1N1.
On the other hand, 60 staff members developed ILI or were documented to have H1N1: of 17 tested for ILI, eight were positive. An additional 43 staff members called in sick with ILI. (Approx. 11-12 staff developed ILI after working on the unit where the child was given care, several of whom had positive H1N1 tests.)
So, it is rather remarkable that only two residents of 275 developed ILI, one of which did not develop it here, while 103 of 800 staff members had ILI. It appears that the spread of H1N1 was not from staff-to-resident but from resident-to-staff (most obvious in the imported case) and between staff, implying that staff were susceptible and our residents protected.

Analysis from Dr Cannell:
Dear Dr. Glick:
This is the first hard data that I am aware of concerning H1N1 and vitamin D. It appears vitamin D is incredibly protective against H1N1. Dr. Carlos Carmago at Mass General ran the numbers in an email to me. Even if one excludes 43 staff members who called in sick with influenza, 0.73% of residents were affected, as compared to 7.5% of staff. This 10-fold difference was statistically significant (P<0.001). That is, the chance that this was a chance occurrence is one less than one in a thousand.
Second, if you read my last newsletter……………
you will see that children with neurological impairments, like the patients at your hospital, have accounted for 2/3 of the childhood deaths for H1N1 so far in the USA. That is, the CDC knows, because they reported it, that patients with neurological impairments are more likely to die from H1N1.
The problem is that I cannot get anyone in authority at the CDC or the NIH to listen. I need readers to email or call their senators and congresspersons in Washington.
Ask your senator or congressperson to contact the CDC and NIH to complain about CDC and NIH inaction on Vitamin D and H1N1. Also, ask your senators and representative to demand congressional hearings on Vitamin D and H1N1, before it is too late. Here is the link below, just click it and follow instructions to contact your own representatives.

I wonder why Dr Cannell can get no one to listen? Is this why:
See this also:
Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg is a politician and a specialist in lungs, hygiene and environmental medicine. He is the chairman of the health committee in the German parliament and European Council.
Lung specialist Wolfgang Wodarg has said that there are many risks associated with the vaccine for the H1N1 virus.
He has grave reservations about the firm Novartis who are developing the vaccine and testing it in Germany. The vaccination is injected “with a very hot needle”, Wodarg said.
The nutrient solution for the vaccine consists of cancerous cells from animals and “we do not know if there could be an allergic reaction”. But more importantly, some people fear that the risk of cancer could be increased by injecting the cells.
The vaccine – as Johannes Löwer, president of the Paul Ehrlich Institute, has pointed out – can also cause worse side effects than the actual swine flu virus.
Wodarg also described people’s fear of the pandemic as an “orchestration”: “It is great business for the pharmaceutical industry,” he told the ‘Neuen Presse’.*
Swine flu is not very different from normal flu. “On the contrary if you look at the number of cases it is nothing compared to a normal flu outbreak,” he added.
2 – 5,000 U.I Vitamin D3 per day depending on factors such as size, diet, sun exposure, lattitude, etc. will provide better protection to you against the flu of all varieties than antivirals or vaccine laced with mercury preservative. Washing your hands and face is also important when you come in from the outside.

Dr. Cannell: Thanks for your update about the hospital in Wisconsin. I have had similar anecdotal evidence from my medical practice here in Georgia. We are one of the 5 states with widespread H1N1 outbreaks.
I share an office with another family physician. I aggressively measure and replete vitamin D. He does not. He is seeing one to 10 cases per week of influenza-like illness.
In my practice— I have had zero cases. My patients are universally on 2000–5000 IU to maintain serum levels 50–80 ng/ml. Ellie Campbell, DO Campbell Family Medicine 3925 Johns Creek Court Ste A Suwannee GA 30024
