 Steve Martin quipped, ‘a day without sunshine is like, you know, night.’ 

Sadly, especially 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 military and civilian 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.
