Very Informative and Well Written Book!
on March 31, 2013
After having a spine fusion four years ago, I was advised by my neurosurgeon to increase my intake of calcium and vitamin D3. At that time, I did not realize there was any difference between the various types of vitamin D, although my neurosurgeon said "make sure it is D3." I found the author's book very easy to read; the information she presented was well-researched, well-documented, and practical for both the layperson and medical professional. I now feel more knowledgeable about the potential benefits of D3 and the how the vitamin may prevent/help various medical conditions ranging from the common cold to cancer. I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn more about vitamin D3. As the author suggests, I will discuss D3 with my personal physician before increasing the dose. I do have many questions for my doctor after reading this book (and now feel that I am an informed patient). Finally, you can feel the author's passion about her subject as you read the book. She provided several personal examples that made "Defend Your Life" very interesting. I sat down to BEGIN reading the book and ended up reading it from cover to cover without ever leaving my chair!
