Women & Vitamin D with Dr. David Agus
Dr. David Agus, author of The End of Illness, was here last night with Connie Chung for a talk: Ending Illness. Before the event, our colleague in the Lectures department, Assistant Director Jennifer Giunta Hausler, asked Dr. Angus: “Tell us why women shouldn’t take vitamin D.”
"I don’t think they shouldn’t take vitamin D," he responded. "I think that just everybody taking vitamin D doesn’t make sense. So if you look at it, over 90% of people in the Unites States are "quote", low in vitamin D. So first of all, what’s normal? Who defines normal? If a woman takes high doses of vitamin D, she actually increases her rate of bone fracture, not decreases it."
