UPDATE: I added a post on the bottom here stating that I just got my vitamin D level test back & it's very low. For any of you taking vitamin D supplements, do you know about certain types, brands, etc. that are better at absorbing than others? Please read below & let me know- thanks in advance!
I just clicked onto Cheryl's link from another thread that she called "interesting video clip". It was an interview with a professor from UCSD/Moores Cancer Center on a newly published study on the importantce of vitamin D and how 75% of breast cancer and colorectal cancer deaths can be stopped with boosting vitamin D levels(I think that's what it said- my chemo brain may already be getting it mixed up). I got excited because I live in north San Diego- UCSD/Moores is where I went for my liver surgery and to consult with an oncologist (and where I'd like to go all the time to the oncologist, but my insurance won't let me).
**CHERYL- it was weird- I read your post, clicked on the link you put in, watched the video clip, then tried to go back to your post and reply, but then it just disappeared from my screen. I then proceeded to go back into the discussion board and check threads, but couldn't find it again- which thread again did you post it under? I'm sure I'm just being dopey in not being able to find it again, but maybe it's important enough to give it its own thread, anyway.
Take care, Everyone!
