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
