There is a video in the previous link that is 29 minutes long but well worth watching. There is a chart shown on the video that you can see from this link http://www.grassrootshealth.net/media/download/disease_incidence_prev_chart_101608.pdf that is astonishing! It shows things like an 83 percent reduction on breast cancer by having double the base line level of vitamin D in your blood! That chart takes a minute to load but is worth it.
