             Vitamin D regulates over 2000 genes in the body. Research and epidemiological studies are implicating vitamin D deficiency
in numerous illnesses including
cancer, heart disease, diabetes, chronic auto-immune diseases, mental illness, depression,
autism and lower IQ in children born to vitamin D deficient mothers
.  Deficiency of vitamin D increases susceptibility to influenza,
common colds tuberculosis and other infections.

             Vitamin D deficiency is present in 95% of Asians and Blacks and 75% of Caucasians. Severe deficiency is common in
Asians, people of Middle Eastern ancestry, Mexicans and Africans especially when they immigrate to North America and Europe.

             Our skin naturally produces vitamin D when exposed to summer midday sun.  In fair skinned people half an hour of
exposure to sun can produce 20000 units of vitamin D. It takes 4 times longer for colored people to produce the same amount. Most
people however have little exposure and during winter almost eveyone is deficient. Even fortified milk has very little vitamin D. You
will need to drink 21 cups to get 2000 units.

     It is easy to take one pill of 4000 units (100 micro grams) daily. For children less then 12, dose is 1000 units (25 micro grams).
No prescription is needed. It is safe to take up to 10000 units daily however 4000 units are usually enough.

                                 Blood test to accurately check for vitamin D deficiency is serum 25-Hydroxy-vitamin D
