I agree that is why I keep posting about the Vitamin D and its benefits. Thanks for reading this one! Your comments are always welcomed.

Low D is not only linked to cancer, diabetes, obesity but MS, other autoimmune diseases and most everything you can think of.

I got a very bad sunburn when I was ten. In my teens and early 20's I would also burn after only a few minutes in the sun. I cannot wear (most) sunscreens at all, so I make sure I wear long sleeves and hats, etc. if I have to be outside for longer than 10 to 15 minutes. But I will look for the Burt's Bees to try this summer and see what it's like. I've never heard of Alba

If you are using sunscreen you want to make sure you aren't using the junk in the drug stores like banana boat, coppertone, etc...... You are literally baking those chemicals in your skin. I would look for Alba, Burts Bees, or a natural one with all the junk!

Thank you for the info EJ! A Dr told me to wear sunscreen and I did for years. I am now diabetic type 2. I never used sunscreen as a child and used to get a nice tan gradually. I used to spend a lot of time outside. I never used sunscreen on my children, but my daughter used to burn sometimes as she has a fair skin, not olive like mine. I am worried because she smothers her daughter in a high factor sunscreen and she looks very anaemic. She gets lots of colds and I don't think she is getting enough D. I think she should have a few minutes in the sun and then put the cream on. I don't put cream on when I work in the garden unless its very hot or if I am going for a hike or on the beach for a long time, so I have got quite a tan this year and I am feeling much better. I think my skin is not so dry either.

My body, legs, have been aching for a long time; I was in the drug store and the woman who checked me out told me to use vitamin D3. So I bought some and now I feel a lot better. The first and second day I took 4000 IU then 3000 for a couple of days. Now I take 2000 a day.

Also think that the sunscreens don't help either since the stop the sun from getting to your skin. I don't use sunscreens at all but when I do it is Burt's Bees

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Have been taking vitamin D for over a year and when the doctor checked in December my number was only 35, and have since increased my level to 5000 daily, so hopefully when he checks in June it will be higher. Thanks for the information.

Thank you EJ, for another good article. My Nephrologist has me on 5000 IU vit D a day. Vitamin D also helps control the Phosphorus and Calcium levels in Chronic Kidney Disease Patients.
I have been taking the Carlson brand. Do you know this brand? Do you recommend one.

Low "D" Linked to Cancer, Diabetes, Obesity

The latest on vitamin D comes from three new studies. The first suggests that women with low levels of "D" may be at increased risk for an aggressive type of breast cancer. The second reveals that low levels of "D" are associated with a higher risk of type 2 diabetes and the third investigation demonstrates that it isn't easy to normalize levels of "D" in obese teens. Researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center looked at vitamin D levels in 155 breast cancer patients before and after surgery. They found that low levels of "D" were associated with hard-to-treat tumors that have a worse outlook than other types of breast cancer. They noted that premenopausal women and African-American women were more likely to have low levels of "D" than older, Caucasian women. Meanwhile, after following 5,000 people for five years, Australian researchers reported that those with lower than average vitamin D levels had 57 percent higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes than those whose levels of "D" were in the recommended range. And researchers at Hasbro Children's Hospital in Providence, RI reported that even after being treated, levels of vitamin D remained low among almost three-quarters of a group of 68 obese adolescents. The researchers called for increased surveillance of obese teens and studies to determine whether normalizing their levels of "D" would help protect them against obesity-related health risks.

My take? Earlier studies have suggested that low levels of vitamin D are associated with the spread of breast cancer after treatment, and we do know that breast cancer occurs more frequently in areas of the world that get the least sun (exposure to sunlight initiates the synthesis of vitamin D in our bodies). Overall, an increasing body of evidence suggests that "D" plays an important role in defending against cancer (studies have linked a deficiency of vitamin D to as many as 18 different types of cancer). In recent years, scientists have also found that "D" may help to prevent a number of other diseases, including diabetes. Because of the accumulating evidence associating low levels of vitamin D with disease, I raised my recommendation of 1,000 IU of vitamin D per day to a minimum dose of 2,000 IU per day. No adverse effects have been seen with supplemental vitamin D intakes up to 10,000 IU daily.
