    John: This is a wonderful post, so full of important information. Problem is that people just will not listen to this as I have been trying for at least 4 or 5 years to get my family to understand what is causing some of their health problems and they will just not listen–sort of like convincing people we are living in the last days. I guess another reason is that they just do not want to change their eating habits.

    I know that you have more or less endorsed Dr. Mercola, so I am taking the liberty of copying something from his most recent newsletter. You may have already addressed this, but it is quite important in regard to taking vitamin D3. The title of his article is “Beyond Calcium and Vitamin D—How to Really Build Strong Bones” which can probably be found in his archives. What is really important from the article is this:

    “The researchers did combine calcium with vitamin D, which is important, but they did not address vitamin K2, which is critical. I say critical because the biological role of vitamin K2 is to help move calcium into the proper areas in your body, such as your bones and teeth. It also helps remove calcium from areas where it shouldn’t be, such as in your arteries and soft tissues.

    Furthermore, if you take supplemental vitamin D, you also need to increase your intake of vitamin K2, because when you take vitamin D, your body creates more vitamin K2-dependent proteins—the proteins that help move the calcium around in your body. But you need vitamin K2 to activate those proteins. If they’re not activated, the calcium in your body will not be properly distributed and can lead to weaker bones and hardened arteries. In fact, vitamin K2 deficiency is actually what produces the symptoms of vitamin D toxicity, which includes inappropriate calcification that can lead to hardening of your arteries.”

    I pray for good health for everyone! Maranatha!

      It is easy to get discouraged when talking to people about health and antidepressants.
      I ignore the ones who do not want to listen and just move on to others.
      It is very similar to preaching the gospel.
      Our job it to tell the truth and the rest is up to God and the person.
