Vitamin D – The Cost To The NHS of Epidemic Deficiency And The Overwhelming Case For Supplementation.

April 21st, 2010 No comments

From Cancer Research UK

The Government’s view

Professor Mike Richards, National Cancer Director, kicked off the session. He acknowledged that the UK spends less on healthcare as a whole than many other European countries. On top of this, we spend proportionally less on cancer care than many of our EU counterparts.

According to the latest figures, around 5 per cent of the NHS spend is on cancer, equating to around £76 per head each year in England ….

Clearly there is a need to increase spend in the NHS on cancer – particularly when the demographics and new advances in cancer drugs are taken into account. As the population ages, cancer is getting more common – Professor Richards commented that the incidence of the disease is increasing at a rate of around 1.5 per cent each year. This means there will inevitably be more people needing cancer care services.

And with great strides in cancer research, many new drugs and diagnostic tests are coming through – offering new hope to people touched by cancer – but at a price. On top of this, the NHS needs to consider the increasing cost of follow up care for cancer survivors (’survivorship care’) – as more and more people survive cancer.

So cancer care costs are certain to increase in the future, and these will need to be met through boosting spending and efficiency in the NHS.

Compare the £76 per head spent on Cancer alone by the NHS to the cost of effective supplementation with Vitamin D3 – approximately £10 per head, per annum.

Now factor in Diabetes:

The NHS is spending £1m an hour, 10% of its yearly budget, treating diabetes and its complications, according to a new report.

Despite advances in detection and treatment, incidence of the disease – which causes heart attacks, stokes and blindness – is spiralling.

GPs are still missing telltale symptoms which mean the disease may remain undetected for many years until irreversible damage has been done, said campaigning charity Diabetes UK.

Some 2.3million people in the UK are already diagnosed but the charity estimated the number of diagnosed and “hidden” diabetics will top 4million by 2025.

The report also revealed one in 10 people in hospital in the UK have diabetes and 60% of inpatients with diabetes have been admitted as emergencies. The total cost to the NHS equates to £9bn-a-year.

This is another £140 per head of the UK population on diabetes …

Now factor in heart disease .. allergies .. influenza treatment and deaths …. parkinsons .. multiple sclerosis …

How about depression? – another £140 per head UK population per annum. from the estimated cost in 2000:

The total cost of adult depression was estimated at over £9 billion

Source: Imperial College

So we can spend £10 per year on D3 supplements per head of the UK population and reduce NHS spending by say 75% of these amounts (conservatively) – meaning a saving of £271 per head per annum on Cancer, Diabetes and Depression alone. Cancer, diabetes and depression and Schizophrenia are pretty much unknown at the equator.

This amounts to a saving to the NHS potentially of £17.6 billion per annum at a cost of around £650 million for appropriate D3 supplementation and testing …. that’s quite a sum.

Are you getting the picture as to why the Pharma industry is deliberately overplaying the dangers of Vitamin D supplementation?

They can’t patent Vitamin D and they stand to stand to lose an awful lot of money if people are healthy.

Vitamin D and Health – The Real Story

April 15th, 2010 No comments

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.

Russell L. Blaylock M.D.: Take D3 NOT THE SWINE FLU VACCINE.

October 5th, 2009 2 comments

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.

RUSSELL L. BLAYLOCK, M.D.”

D3, Swine Flu And A Few Other Things: Summary of Findings.

October 5th, 2009 No comments

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:

Doctors Don’t Even Act On What They Know.

A visit to my doctor shocked me …

Vitamin D3: “It’s Not Just for Flu .. It’s For Life”. All Pregnant Asian Women In UK And Their Children Could Benefit From D3 Supplements.

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 ….

D3 and Swine Flu: Proof Of Benefits From US Medical Centre And Testimony Of The Dangers of Vaccination

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 …

Vitamin D3 and Flu Including “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 …

Vitamin D3, Flu, Cancer, Colds, Asthma, Crohns, Heart Disease and Diabetes. Oh .. and Depression and Schizophrenia and Many More.

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.
