A low vitamin D level found in the blood is one sign of sunlight deficiency, just like high blood cholesterol is one sign of eating too much meat and cheese.  A far-reaching campaign has been launched by doctors, health organizations, supple- ment companies, and pharmaceutical industries to fix the problem of sunlight deficiency with pills.  Take vitamin D pills and the internal levels of this vitamin will increase, but 5 of 9 studies have shown no reduction in the risk of suffering from a fracture and 9 of 10 studies have shown no decrease in the most serious bone breakóhip fractures.1 


If I Could Be Your Doctor, I Would Love to Tell You How:
To Lose Excess Weight Effortlessly, Painlessly, and Permanently

You need to believe that the only thing that matters is the composition of the foods on your plate. Do not focus on anything else.  Donít think about how much you eat.  Donít think about exercise.  It does not matter if you are a nice person, or if you go to church, or if your classmates picked on you in high school.  Itís the food.  All you have to do to permanently change your lifeóI sincerely mean this; to lose excess weight and regain your lost healthóis to change the makeup of the meals you put into your mouth.

The Advanced Study Weekend held September 7 to 9, 2007 was an outstanding success with more than 160 people enjoying each otherís company, fabulous food, and the nationís top speakers on nutrition, health and medicine.  Dr. T. Colin Campbell, PhD, appeared as a national hero to his captivated audience.  The presentations of Michael Greger, MDís were a work of art.  Brenda Davis, RD provided the audience with basic lessons on nutrition and the story behind her personal campaign to save the people of the Marshall Islands from the ravages caused by the rich Western diet.  Jason Wyrick, Master Chef, cooked soups of the world for an excited crowd.  Most people considered it the best health dollar they had ever spent and planned to return to the February 22 to 24, 2008 weekend. You had to have been there to fully appreciate the experience.
