As someone who suffered lung infections 3-4 times a year along with the flu and colds, and coughing all the time over the span of a little more than a decade and was completely healed with Vitamin D3 supplementation, I call BS on this widely circulated story as do those in the Vitamin D3 "community."

I have been taking vitamin D3 5000mg a day for years and it has cleared up various problems that lingered for years. It must be D3, not ordinary D or D2 which is synthetic.

Doctors know NOTHING about nutrition -- they never study it. Ask any doctor, and they will admit it.

Vitamin D deficiency was recognized a long time ago. That is why most milk is UV irradiated to generate the vitamin and also why those of us old enough to remember got that spoonful of cod liver oil, especially in the Winter. If you belong to a susceptible group for osteoporosis [Nordic blonds and Asians], don't skimp on Vitamin D. I noticed that my toe nails changed from grey to pink after a few weeks of moderate doses of Vitamin D, about 10,000 IU per week.
