My Dr. and Vit D

I know I said that I would tell everyone what my GP said about what vit D level you should have or how much of a supplement I should take. Well, sorry to tell you but that won't happen.

Something for Lyon

Lyon,

Attached is a video of a lecture from the end of last year from Professor Thompson of the UK which runs through current knowledge / current therapies / future therapies. This should keep you happy and give us all a break from you for a day or so. Enjoy.

Ian
