I’ve written before on Vitamin D, and how my personal experience suggests substantial benefits, and how recent evidence suggests even anti-cancer possibilities. I don’t get sick much, and I recover quickly, even though my kids bring home a jungle of bugs from the local public schools.
Vitamin C could help with heart disease?
Reader Robert Burkhalter has a passion for avoiding heart disease, having suffered the loss of multiple people close to him. His personal trauma has led him to write up what he feels is a clear path to reducing or eliminating heart disease (he is not an MD). Easy reading, then more in-depth stuff, and then citations I’m not even qualified to read. Far fetched? You can decide for yourself, but here is the link if you’d like to investigate.
My personal view: many common diseases today are pretty straightforward and in many (not all) cases, they are self-inflicted, namely poor diet and lack of exercise leading to a cornucopia of nasty downstream problems. The kind of stuff that no expensive pill will cure. So I’m a natural skeptic of medications to fix many illnesses; it starts with strengthening the body’s own natural defenses. (I’m not arguing against vaccines or antibiotics, etc).
