Dangers of Vitamin-D Supplements

In 2002, I wrote and published a book (MILK: A-Z) which included this chapter on Vitamin D:

Vitamin D belongs to a category of steroids called secosteroids.

Secosteroids are similar to a steroid hormones except that a secosteroid's molecular structure contains a
"broken ring."

Baseball players who illegally use steroids hormones after injuries and usually show some improvement from pain. Some of those same ball players have developed tumors after steroid use. They include Jason Giambi and Lex Rodriguez of New York Yankee fame.

Steroids and secosteroids reduce inflammation, but there are side affects which include cancers, bone loss, and other autoimmune diseases. See:

The author writes:

"Studies delineating the hormone responsible for phagocyte differentiation in the Th1 immune response,
1,25-dihydroxy vitamin D, are discussed, and its utility as a marker of Th1 immune inflammation is
reviewed. Finally, data showing that the behavior of this hormone is also aberrant in rheumatoid arthritis,
systemic lupus erythematosus, and Parkinson's, raise the possibility that these diseases may also have
a CWD bacterial pathogenesis."

Scientific data supports a conclusion that supplemental Vitamin D creates an cellular environment in which
pathogenic infections result which cause a vast array of complications.

Finally...a presentation (transcript) linking the connection between Vitamin D supplements, cell wall
bacterial infections, disease...and a possible cure for those previously incurable diseases:
