As Steve Martin quipped, ‘a day without sunshine is like, you know, night.’
Sadly, especially in recent times, too many people get too little sunshine, literally and metaphorically, to make a difference in their lives. Today we talk about the sunshine vitamin, Vitamin D, and how recent science changed the way long time family physician Dr. Dave McCarthy, thought about deficiency diseases. We discuss Vitamin D and other deficiency states, criteria for determination nutritional adequacy, as the cost effectiveness of prevention.
