I just read this article and thought I would get some other opinions from you moms as well.
|Vitamin D hype has everyone swallowing the "sunshine vitamin" like Oprah swallows fat loss scams. Scared of cancer? Eat vitamin D. Can't get into your skinny jeans? Eat vitamin D. Got diabetes? Eat vitamin D. Tired of your wife yelling at you for watching too much Celebrity Apprentice? Eat vitamin D.
Nobody is immune from "D" hype. Famed nutrition gurus from around the world have been pushing vitamin D on the masses. Thankfully, I'm not a nutrition guy. The thought of spreading wishy-washy advice with a cute trendy smile makes me nauseous. I enjoy solitude, research and more solitude. So much that I don't even carry my cell phone, just a bad attitude. And that's why I'm a chemist, because I enjoy sleuthing for real answers behind the hype, especially when it comes to "pills."
