Looking Ahead to Change: Little by Little
I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I ever really did, but the last decade or two would have been enough to stifle that impulse. I've just been too aware that I don't have that much control over what happens in my life.

    From the journal Anticancer Research-

    We found that daily intakes of vitamin D by adults in the range of 4000-8000 IU are needed to maintain blood levels of vitamin D metabolites in the range needed to reduce by about half the risk of several diseases - breast cancer, colon cancer, multiple sclerosis, and type 1 diabetes, said Cedric Garland, DrPH, professor of family and preventive medicine at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center. I was surprised to find that the intakes required to maintain vitamin D status for disease prevention were so high much higher than the minimal intake of vitamin D of 400 IU/day that was needed to defeat rickets in the 20th century.
