Is US government setting stage to outlaw Vitamin D like raw milk?

(NaturalNews) The United States government has just crossed the threshold of nutritional insanity with an announcement that postmenopausal women should avoid taking vitamin D. This announcement, made by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, is tantamount to declaring war on nutrition. In a nation where 90+ percent of the population is chronically deficient in vitamin D, any government edict that encourages people to avoid this lifesaving vitamin will only result in more cancer, more Alzheimer's disease, more bone fractures, more diabetes and more kidney disease.

... which is, of course, exactly what the medical establishment wants. After all, how are the drug companies supposed to make money treating patients with cancer if they prevent cancer themselves by using dirt-cheap vitamin D?

The mainstream media, predictably, has dutifully followed the government's anti-nutrition advice by distorting the conclusions of the study and running headlines like this one in USA Today, the corporate-run disinfo outlet:

Panel to postmenopausal women: Don't take vitamin D, calcium.

Just go outside for 30 minutes at noon

This will give you plenty of vitamin D! :) p.s. don't use sunscreen.

Its for your Own Good.

Stay away from Vitamin D, and continue eating your GMO, drink the Fluoridated Plastic Water, consume Aspartame, and take those Mercury Shots.

Sunshine and fish

Good vitamin D sources are sunshine and fat fish. Forget about expensive and artificial supplements. Get out and into the sunshine. Good for you. Eat salmon and mackerel. Healthy and good for you.
Now - that justifies over zealous and nanny government regulation? Of course not. Just some free advise ;-)

Research indicates 10k iu a day

of d3 is more than likely what you should take. What I do is take 5k iu a day of liquid d3 with one non gmo k2 aday with 2 drops of potassium iodide and 1 drop of potassium iodine along with selenium ( or 1 brazil nut). Also I take astaxanthan which is a super antioxident, tumeric with black pepper and I take coconut oil. You must eat fat with your d3 to be asorbed. K2 is awesome by it's self but combined with d3 it is a tag team that's unbeatable. K2 makes sure you do not get calcium deposits in your veins which can occur from excess d3 and if you have calcium in your arteries already the k2 takes it out and puts it in your bones where it belongs.Tumeric and black pepper is also a super anti oxident adaptogen.

25-50k units in a day and a nap, 2 hours later I Feel like New Money!
For the nay-sayers your skin can absorb 75-80K units in a day.
Works for me. D3 in liquid form.

Doctors do not know a darned thing about nutrition. I can prove it. On your next Dr visit ask about nutrition and all you'll get is a puzzled look with a vague pat answer like "Oh you can eat anything" "Oh soda is okay" "Sure you can have fries but a potato is good too" or some other BS. No worries. You'll probably only get his nurses assistant anyway. Seeing a real doctor is rare these days.

Drink milk for calcium. Use whole lactose free so there is minimal processing. They do have lactose free Ice Cream.

Keepin' it real.

I wouldn't drink milk for

I wouldn't drink milk for calcium, I'd eat leafy green vegetables. Calcium in milk is not as absorbable as that found in whole foods. And milk nowadays is garbage anyways.

Yeah, it seems that "doctors"

Yeah, it seems that "doctors" these days are nothing more than Big Pharma stooges.

Vitamin D in millk

is Vitamin D2 - synthetic and virtually worthless. Certain fish supply Vitamin D. Almond milk sold in stores is a processed product. Easy to make your own with almonds and water.

Vitamin D3 must be taken with fat for it to work.

Get level tested before taking more than 5000 iu's per day. You can do an online test if doc refuses.

My level was extremely low (7) and I have been taking 10,000 a day for 3 years. No ill effects. Instead, no colds, flus, viruses, reduced joint pain, and better mood.

Sunscreen prevents Vitamin d absorption. It also causes cancer.

Milk compared to White Liquid Masquerading as Milk

Try raw milk for vitamin D. What the cow eats is what you drink and eat. Raw milk from sunshine bathed and grass fed roaming cows has got to be the milk in the phrase land of milk and honey. It tastes great and it heals.

Raw milk is vitamin and mineral, enzyme packed and unlike the milk 99% of people consume it doesn't stick to the inside of your mouth as if it leaves behind a film and yucky taste. No. Raw milk splashes off teeth and gums and all else and smoothly travels to the stomach and into the digestion tract and urinary tract, engulfs bad critters, sets up colonies of good bacteria, quells inflammation, cleans blood and rebuilds bone.

The difference between the nature raised cow and man raised cow is polar. Drink milk, not white liquid bearing the name milk. Milk for the win!

Recommendation: The Untold Story of Milk by Ron Schmid. I haven't read this book but some day I will. The Whole Truth about Milk: Raw vs. Pasteurized, two DVDs, almost four hours long.

School's fine. Just don't let it get in the way of thinking. -Me

Study nature, not books. -Walton Forest Dutton, MD, in his 1916 book whose subject is origin (therefore what all healing methods involve and count on), simple and powerful.

You are correct, I should have said Vit D in"pastueurized milk."

Raw milk is full of good stuff and tastes so much better than dead milk.

Rhapsody In White

Brownie, Brownie, Let Down Your Milk
 By Christina Georgina Rossetti ( 1830-1894)

Brownie, Brownie, let down your milk,
White as swansdown and smooth as silk,
Fresh as dew and pure as snow:
For I know where the cowslips blow,
And you shall have a cowslip wreath
No sweeter scented than your breath.


Winter Milk
 By Carl Sandburg (1878-1967)

The milk drops on your chin, Helga,
Must not interfere with the cranberry red of your
Nor the sky winter blue of your eyes.
Let your mammy keep hands off the chin.
This is a high holy spatter of white on the reds and

Before the bottle was taken away,
Before you so proudly began today
Drinking your milk from the rim of a cup
They did not splash this high holy white on your chin.

There are dreams in your eyes, Helga.
Tall reaches of wind sweep the clear blue.
The winter is young yet, so young.
Only a little cupful of winter has touched your lips.
Drink on… milk with your lips… dreams with
your eyes

Milk is Life in liquid form. In the 5-10 investment thread I suggested a way for you to have welcome access to a nearby farmer with cows. The one with the shine … with the healthiest calf. ( The brown ones have the sweetest cream … butterfat ).

Start your day rising before dawns light breaks. Bring your bottle of iodine splash and a towel to wipe the teat. A thermos of hot strong coffee and a tall cup. Top your tasa with frothy squirts and lightly sprinkle the nutmeg and cinnamon from your pocket to envelop the hint of iodine teasing the aroma of real in your medicinal cappuccino. Go ahead … tell me the week’s supply of sustenance balanced at your side as you head home isn’t worth it’s weight in lightness beyond measure.


My lovely Jersey cow is due to calf any day now. We wait with great anticipation for her liquid gold. Nothing more important to life, health, the land and communities than the cultivation and consumption of raw milk.


I love fawn-colored Jerseys and how a raw milk white 'stash softens and sooths the stiff upper lip we often pose in the face of life.

I thought you'd enjoy this ode to the process of cul. and cream.


Will the FEDS outlaw sitting in the sun?

Just sayin'


They'll just use chemtrails to block the sunlight.

lol, that was a brilliant

lol, that was a brilliant reply!

This is actually good news.

It seems like anytime the government tries to outlaw something more people consume it. So if the government outlaws vitamin D and 90 % of the population has a vitamin D deficiency, problem solved. :D

"The economy's not a class you can master in college. To think otherwise is the pretense of knowledge."

"If people let the government

"If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny."

Actually, that is a paraphrased version of the Jefferson quote.

The actual quote is:

"Was the government to prescribe to us our medicine and diet, our bodies would be in such keeping as our souls are now."

It is from "Notes on the State of Virginia", chapter 17. Here's the whole chapter, it's one of the best things I've ever read: http://teachingamericanhistory.org/library/index.asp?documen...

Great quote. How apropos!

Why haven't we listened! We were warned about some other issues, too.

At my most recent physical

I found out that my insurance would cover all the blood tests my doctor ordered but will no longer cover testing vitamin D levels.

I actually have a liking to

I actually have a liking to what the task force has been doing. They are studying the usefulness of many interventions and almost always conclude we should not be intervening as much as we do.

In the above case, I had the opposite reaction. I find it disturbing that I cannot buy milk at a grocery store without vitamin D in it. A below commenter said 15 minutes sunshine is all you need. We get enough vitamin D people and too much of a good thing is detrimental.

This government task force is producing research that enables me to explain to people that they do not need to fall victim to the "preventive" medicine model which results in the opposite effect. Instead of preventing the problem many services increase the problems and worsen health.

Although I did not need a task force to understand this it is good to have the research published for legal purposes and patient education.

Research on Vit D is overwhelmingly positive

If you are truly interested in research and educating, you might want to start here in regards to vit D


I consider research and try

I consider research and try not to conclude beyond the evidence. Of course vitamin D is good. Too little vitamin D is bad. Too much is also bad. How much is too much? How is vitamin D absorbed? How activated? Every nutrient has a natural mechanism. Sunlight. Foods. Etc. Find the right foods and get a little sun. Not sure how you would not be able to. I have some doubts on research because most is published for a reason other than to discover truth. Money, fame, needing to get published for career, etc. Does not mean the research is entirely bad, but you must ask whether the conclusions of a study are appropriate for the knowledge gained by the research.

Not saying whether someone should take vitamin D supplements or not. That is not my concern. The government has no business outlawing vitamin D! I just wanted to put out a word of warning that the truth is not always as things appear.

The article is right

90% of the population has low vitamin D. And I am certain most of them have not heard of vitamin B-17.

Agreed on Vitamin D...

But what people call "vitamin B-17" is not a vitamin at all, it's a substance (Google: Amygdalin) that breaks down into cyanide in the body.

I take

5000 iu's a day and don't get the flu. One of my sons two years ago got the flu and ended up in the i.c.u. because he is a diabetic. He refuses to take vitamins. The rest of us didn't get the flu though. We take our vit. faithfully.
I noticed at Walmart a few months ago they stopped selling the 5000 iu bottle. I usually buy mine on line but I suspected something when I saw that. They don't want people getting enough in one pill. I live in N.H. and you can't always get enough sun everyday. Especially in the winter or many rainy days.

The reason folks get the flu in winter is due to lack of Vit D

from sunshine. This is why I always decline to get the flu vac at each and every time of the year it is offered (right around Sept), a requirement at hospital/clinic work, and this is coming from me, a nurse. Not only me, but I notice several hospital staff that I work with decline to get the flu vacs as well. I just get the necessary 15min of sunshine (at breaks, where I am in Los Angeles), along with some cod liver oil I take daily, for good measure.

The US Gov't is not satisfied enough with the vaccine racket (flu vac in this case) forced upon the brainwashed US Public...and now this friggin' BS Vit D ban?!!

Fifteen minutes of sunshine

a day and your body will produce all the vitamin D you need. Let's see if they can take that away. :)
