Vitamin D: Is This The Miracle Vitamin?

Vitamin D - the miracle vitaminThat is the title of a new book by Ian Wishart, an investigative journalist in New Zealand.

In his book, Wishart accuses the Cancer Council in New Zealand for neglecting all evidence of the cancer-fighting role of vitamin D.

This is an exact parallel to my accusation of the Swedish Cancer Council in the post “Cancerfonden Misslyckas” (“The Swedish Cancer Council fails”). The post is in Swedish language but you can use Google translator in order to get an idea of its content in other languages).

In the video below, Wishart clashes with a representative for New Zealand's Cancer Society. Judge for yourself who comes out on top in that discussion.

Here is a citation from Wishart during the interview …

The Cancer Society [in New Zealand] has a massive conflict of interest. They make money from marketing sunscreen and made millions of dollars over the past decade from marketing sunscreen. The Melanoma Foundation, in New Zealand, Australia, the US, is sponsrored by sunscreen manufacturers. It's bit like if Big Tobacco was sponsoring lung-cancer charities saying that if you use more of our sponsors products, it will protect you from lung-cancer. The truth is that there is not one creditable study in the world that shows that sunscreen protects you from melanoma. But every summer, the Cancer Society, the Ministry of Health, the Melanoma Foundations around the world are telling us to use more sunscreens. In the book I am saying – wake up – the emperor has no clothes, here is the evidence.

Here is a recommendation from one of the world's leading experts on Vitamin D:

“This book is the latest popular book on vitamin D. It covers topics of current interest including autism, cancer, erectile dysfunction, hospital-acquired infections, pregnancy, heart disease, infectious diseases, and autoimmune diseases. The research journal literature on vitamin D is growing at the rate of about 4000 papers per year yet the health system in the U.S. accepts the evidence only for falls and fractures. This book makes the case well that there are many, many beneficial effects of vitamin D. I strongly recommend this book. ” – Dr William Grant, vitamin D researcher, San Francisco

NEW …

After having bought the book (Kindle version), I am even more impressed by Ian's work. The critic of the NZ Cancer Council is just one chapter in “Vitamin D: Is This The Miracle Vitamin?”. In addition it contains so much more information about vitamin D. Here is a list of each chapter with ailments for which vitamin D can be beneficial:

  1. THE STORY OF D
  2. ALZHEIMER’S CURSE
  3. AUTISTIC SPECTRUM DISORDERS
  4. ASTHMA & ALLERGIES
  5. CANCER, BREAST
  6. CANCER, COLON & PROSTATE
  7. THE HEART OF THE MATTER (Heart disease)
  8. COMMON INFECTIONS
  9. CONCEPTION, PREGNANCY, CHILDHOOD: WHY YOUR BABY NEEDS VITAMIN D
  10. MENTAL ILLNESS
  11. MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
  12. SUNSCREENS: A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER
  13. MELANOMA: COULD SUNSCREENS BE CAUSING IT?
  14. VITAMIN D: BEST SOURCES
  15. THE NZ POSITION: A COMMENTARY

Each chapter has its own list of references and makes the book an excellent bible for the present status of research on vitamin D.

There are only two areas which I believe could be more developed.

1. The motivation for the sun-scare. It goes much further and deeper than just the sales of sunscreen lotions by the NZ and AU Cancer Councils.

and

2. The use of tanning beds as the best alternative to (or even better than) the natural sun for vitamin D.

    Hi Göran,

    I was on the David Walker’s course and came over to look at your blog. Nice work.

    What you say about the corruption in the pharmaceuticals industry is correct. They are far more interested in selling product than they are in anybody’s health. There is a great book on the subject by a guy called Barry Groves called Trick and Treat if you are interested.

    I have got involved in Kindle publishing and I am marketing my comedy Kindle book, The Mary Celeset Papers here : http://www.amazon.com/The-Mary-Celeste-Papers-ebook/dp/B009EONL36/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1349262786&sr=8-1&keywords=the+mary+celeste+papers

    I suspect that with your naval experiences hunting the Russians you could come up with some interesting stories of your own. Like a few Swedes I know, you would alse be capable of writing it perfectly well in English. I am impressed.

    Regards Paul

  2. This is really interesting. In Australia there is so much information about staying out of the sun and yet Australians are deficient in Vitamin D, there needs to be greater promotion of being safe in the sun whilst getting your daily dose of vitamin D #bronzesafely
