Carole Baggerly describes the health benefits associated with vitamin D.

Carole Baggerly:
Everything – absolutely everything. Dr. Heaney made a very good quote on one of his things saying, “Vitamin D is the enabler that allows our DNA structures to do what they were meant to do.”

It affects cell growth, cell death. It affects getting down to a more deep level. It affects everything from breast cancer, which I am a breast cancer survivor. It helps prevent breast cancer. It helps prevent recurrence of breast cancer, hypertension, every, almost every possible disease, certainly all of the big ones that we are familiar with, are affected by vitamin D.
