Men of African-American descent are at a significantly higher risk of developing prostate cancer than white men. There are reasons why more black people are dying of prostate cancer. Vitamin D. The deficiency of it. Black people need the sun more than white folks. It takes less time under the sun for a white skin to manufacture all the needed vitamin D.

Is it not ironic that while some black folks are lightening up, some white folks are darkening down? They call it tanning and it does not come cheap either. People of African descent, living in cold climate, can have a natural Sun protection factor (SPF) of up to 13 as compared to 3-4 for whites. For equatorial and other hot weather blacks, it is even better. This advantage for African Americans and black immigrants, can also be a disadvantage. It is a double edged sword for black people not living in equatorial climate.

Dark Deception debunks the widespread myth that sunlight is harmful to your health and demonstrates how sunlight exposure can improve your quality of life. For decades sunbathing has been considered evidence of poor health judgment, an activity comparable to smoking cigarettes. This depiction is a gross distortion of the truth. Dark Deception reveals that there is no proof that moderate sunlight exposure is harmful to your health. Sunlight exposure, which produces vitamin D, a crucial hormone for the functioning of organs, provides many therapeutic benefits, including reducing chronic degenerative diseases. Dark Deception elucidates the health benefits of sunlight exposure and the dangers of avoiding it. It offers tips for safe sunbathing. It demonstrates that oral vitamin D supplements can be toxic replacements for the natural vitamin D your body produces when exposed to sunlight. Dark Deception will change how you understand the sun and your health.

Even today, as trendy diets and a weight-loss frenzy sweep the nation, two-thirds of adults are still obese and children are being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, typically an “adult” disease, at an alarming rate. If we’re obsessed with being thin more so than ever before, why are Americans stricken with heart disease as much as we were 30 years ago? In The China Study, Dr. T. Colin Campbell details the connection between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. The report also examines the source of nutritional confusion produced by powerful lobbies, government entities, and opportunistic scientists. The New York Times has recognized the study as the “Grand Prix of epidemiology” and the “most comprehensive large study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease.” The China Study is not a diet book. Dr. Campbell cuts through the haze of misinformation and delivers an insightful message to anyone living with cancer, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and those concerned with the effects of aging.

In Vitamin D: Physiology, Molecular Biology, and Clinical Applications, Second Edition, leading researchers provide a comprehensive, highly readable overview of the biological functions and clinical applications of vitamin D and its metabolites. Topics range from the most recent recommendations for vitamin D intake to new approaches for the treatment and prevention of vitamin D deficiency and the development of active vitamin D drugs to treat psoriasis and cancer. The book demonstrates the significant role that vitamin D has in maintaining good bone health and the prevention of osteoporosis, an important health problem for adults over the age of fifty. In addition, it authoritatively reviews the relationship between sunlight exposure, vitamin D, and increased risk of colon and breast cancer; how vitamin D is made in the skin; and the sequence of events that leads to its activation by the kidney. Also examined are the biological functions of 1,25-dihydrovitamin D3 on the intestine and bone, as well as other tissues, such as skin, the immune system, prostate, and breast, and vitamin D's molecular mechanism of action on the cell membrane and nucleus. The first edition of Vitamin D: Physiology, Molecular Biology and Clinical Applications was the benchmark in the field when published in 1999. This new and expanded volume continues to include extensive, in-depth chapters covering the most important aspects of the complex interactions between vitamin D and other dietary components, the ongoing debate concerning the best indicator of optimal vitamin D status and its nutrient requirements, and the impact of less than optimal status on disease risk. Vitamin D: Physiology, Molecular Biology, and Clinical Applications, Second Edition is designed and organized not only to be an up-to-date review on the subject, but also to provide medical students, graduate students, health care professionals and even the lay public with a reference source for the most up-to-date information about the vitamin D deficiency pandemic and its clinical implications for health and disease.
The book, Omega 3 and vitamin D secrets! How do you obtain a healthy level of Omega 3 and vitamin D these days? contains new information about an old discovery made by a doctor in biochemistry in the USA in the 1940s. With his research he discovered why most people do not get much health benefit from the meals with wild fish, free range eggs, grass feed beef and fish supplements. For whatever reasons his important discovery and solution to obtain a healthy level of Omega 3 and vitamin D plus the other lipids has remained a secret to most people. With his research, the doctor discovered that very little of the important lipids in marine oil or food rich in these lipids would reach all the cells in the skin and body with the normal method of eating and drinking. Already at that time it was noticed that a lot of people got dry skin and body with the associated illnesses. These days some doctors involved in the research of these important lipids think we have reached a worldwide vitamin D deficiency of epidemic proportions with more than 1 billion people at risk for associated illnesses. As soon as you understand how our modern way of life have influenced our digestion, absorption and transport of the essential fatty acid Omega 3 and the oil soluble vitamin D in the body, compared to previous generations, it should be easier to understand why many people get dry skin and body these days. With this knowledge, it should also be easier to understand what you need to do to obtain a healthy level of Omega 3 and vitamin D together with the other oil soluble vitamins to correct or avoid dry skin and body, and the associated illnesses. What are these associated illnesses? According to scientific research lack of these important lipids cause oxidative stress or inflammation at the cellular level. Most of our serious illnesses related to heart, arteries, arthritis, osteoporosis, lung, asthma, diabetes, kidney, eyes, cancer etc and the not so serious illnesses such as dry ski, dry hair, bleeding gums, depression, digestive problems, pain, hearing loss etc seem to develop because of oxidative stress or inflammation at the cellular level. Add fertility problems, autism and birth complications and... What is a healthy level of these important lipids and how can I be sure that I have a healthy level of these lipids? This is what the doctor in biochemistry discovered back in the 1940s. With this information your starting question could be: What changes have we made to our way of living and eating compared to previous generations which give us lack of the essential fatty acids Omega 3 and the oil soluble vitamin D? That information and much more is the topic of the book!
