Jörg Reichrath/Bodo Lehmann/Jörg Spitz (Herausgeber): Vitamin D. Update 2012. Dustri Verlag 2012.
The following properties are being discussed for vitamin D: it lowers the risk for mamma carcinoma, it lowers the risk for colon carcinoma, it improves the survival rate of cancer patients, lowers the blood pressure and promotes the congenital immune system. Moreover, vitamin D stimulates the production of the body's own antibiotics, protects nerve cells (for example against MS), improves the survival rate of patients with coronary artery disease, reduces the risk for diabetes type I and II, protects against periphery artery disease. Furthermore, it strengthens the muscles and postpones nursing care dependency. This book that has been written with the help of numerous renowned national and international specialists answers the question why vitamin D, which is actually a hormone, is so important for human health. It is not only needed for the bones, but for nearly all organs of the body. 70 - 90 percent of the population suffer from vitamin D deficiency, at least during the winter.
