Feel Better, Live Longer With Vitamin B-3: Nutrient Deficiency and Dependency This is the first unified theory of nutrient deficiency and dependency. It is Dr Linus Pauling's revolutionary idea in the 1960s: the world is in a B-3 deficiency and dependency pandemic. Some patients may be vitamin deficient and others may be vitamin dependent. Dependency arises when the person has extremely high vitamin requirements. Both these patients will experience general ill-health and manifest a wide variety of disease conditions that are now inadequately treated with drugs in conventional medical practice. The authors prove that large, controlled doses of vitamin B-3 or niacin, are effective in preventing, treating, and even reversing such niacin deficiency and dependency disorders as pellagra, schizophrenia, Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, alcoholism, cardiovascular diseases, (high cholesterol), and anxiety.
The goal of this volume is to comprehensively cover a highly readable overview on our present knowledge of positive and negative effects of UV-exposure, with a focus on vitamin D and skin cancer. Topics that are discussed in-depth by leading researchers and clinicians range from the newest findings in endocrinology, epidemiology, histology, photobiology, immunology, cytogenetics and molecular pathology to new concepts for prophylaxis and treatment. Experts in the field as well as health care professionals not intimately involved in these specialized areas are provided with the most significant and timely information related to these topics. It is the aim of this book to summarize essential up-to-date information for every clinician or scientist interested in how to balance between positive and negative effects of UV-exposure to minimize the risks of developing vitamin D deficiency and skin cancer.

Whole Food Nutrition: The Missing Link in Vitamin Therapy: The Difference Between Nutrients WITHIN Foods vs. Isolated Vitamins & how they affect your health Dr. Vic Shayne's book is a must-read for anyone who takes vitamins. "There is nothing 'natural' about a vitamin once it has been removed from its original food 'complex.'" Whole food supplements contain vitamins, but vitamins NEVER contain the myriad ingredients found in natural, whole foods. People seeking natural healthcare demand to know the truth.
Dietary Reference Intakes for Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Vitamin D, and Fluoride Since 1941, Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs) has been recognized as the most authoritative source of information on nutrient levels for healthy people. Since publication of the 10th edition in 1989, there has been rising awareness of the impact of nutrition on chronic disease. In light of new research findings and a growing public focus on nutrition and health, the expert panel responsible for formulation RDAs reviewed and expanded its approach - the result: "Dietary Reference Intakes". This new series of references greatly extends the scope and application of previous nutrient guidelines. For each nutrient the book presents what is known about how the nutrient functions in the human body, what the best method is to determine its requirements, which factors (caffeine or exercise, for example) may affect how it works, and how the nutrient may be related to chronic disease. The first volume of "Dietary Reference Intakes" includes calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, vitamin D, and fluoride. The second book in the series presents information about thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, folate, vitamin B12, pantothenic acid, biotin, and choline. Based on analysis of nutrient metabolism in humans and data on intakes in the U.S. population, the committee recommends intakes for each age group - from the first days of life through childhood, sexual maturity, midlife, and the later years. Recommendations for pregnancy and lactation are also made, and the book identifies when intake of a nutrient may be too much. Representing a new paradigm for the nutrition community, "Dietary Reference Intakes" encompasses: Estimated Average Requirements (EARs) - these are used to set Recommended Dietary Allowances. Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs), and intakes that meet the RDA are likely to meet the nutrient requirement of nearly all individuals in a life-stage and gender group; Adequate Intakes (AIs) - these are used instead of RDAs when an EAR cannot be calculated, and both the RDA and the AI may be used as goals for individual intake; Tolerable Upper Intake Levels (ULs) - intakes below the UL are unlikely to pose risks of adverse health effects in healthy people. This new framework encompasses both essential nutrients and other food components thought to pay a role in health, such as dietary fiber. It incorporates functional endpoints and examines the relationship between dose and response in determining adequacy and the hazards of excess intake for each nutrient.

In July the Washington Post reported* that -One Billion People Don't Get Enough Vitamin D-, could you be one of them? The Post article said, -There is evidence that people who live at higher latitudes -- where the angle of the sun's rays is not sufficient to produce adequate amounts of vitamin D in the skin -- are more likely to develop and die of Hodgkin's lymphoma, colon, pancreatic, prostate, ovarian, breast and other cancers. And there is an association between low levels of vitamin D and increased risk for type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Crohn's disease, hypertension and cardiovascular disease-.
