The August Newsletter from the Vitamin D Council. If you do not know Dr. John Cannell, (you may read his bio at the link on his name) director of the Vitamin D Council, then you should understand that he is trained as a psychiatrist. He begin his understanding of vitamin D by working with people that could not go into the sun at Atascadero State Hospital. He has found significant changes in mental functioning with vitamin D.
In this newsletter he again expresses his concern with making preparations for the H1N1 virus and findings on vitmain D and schizophrenia. It is amazing to think that the rate of schizophrenia is only 1 per 1000 at the equator and as you get close to the artic circle it becomes a rate of 28 cases per 1000. This is a must read if your family or friends are troubled with mental illness.
