Five to eight year follow-up of 2048 men, 1807 women ages 63-95. Cardiovascular events were reported by 64 blood donors (9.77%) and 567 non-donors (17.72%; p<0.001)

7) Eliminate or Minimize a ‘Cold’ in 24 Hours in 82% of cases.
a) Source: Crampton CW. Vitamins A and D in the treatment of colds. NY State J Med 1944;44:162-166.
b) 112 patients with colds received vitamin A (150,000 IU) and vitamin D (15,000 IU) the first day and one-third of those amounts the second day. After the first 24 hours, 30.3% were symptom-free, 51.8% were almost symptom-free, a total of 82.1%
cured or almost cured. No adverse effects were seen.
8) Eliminate Nausea & Vomiting of Pregnancy in three (3!) Days in 92% of those treated!
a) Source: Merkel RL. The use of menadione bisulfite and ascorbic acid in the treatment of nausea and vomiting of pregnancy: a preliminary report. Am J Obstet Gynecol 1952;64:416-418. (Menadione is vitamin K3)
b) 70 women with mild to severe nausea and vomiting of pregnancy took simultaneously each day vitamin K3 (5 milligrams) and Vitamin C (25 milligrams). 64 reported complete remission in 72 hours. 3 were relieved of vomiting, but not nausea. 3 obtained no relief.
9) Vitamin D Lowers Mortality from All Causes (Except Trauma)
a) Source: Consortium on Health and Ageing: Network of Cohorts in Europe and the United States (CHANCES). Vitamin D and mortality: meta-analysis of individual participant data from a large consortium of cohort studies from Europe and the United States.
BMJ 2014 Jun 17;348:g3656.
b) “26,018 men and women aged 50 to 79 years…Despite levels of 25(OH)D strongly varying with country, sex, and season, the association between [lower] 25(OH)D level and [higher] all-cause and cause-specific mortality was remarkably consistent.”
Translation: No matter what the reported cause of death—heart attack, stroke, cancer, diabetes, lung disease, or any other specific cause except trauma—if vitamin D levels are higher, chances of dying of any or all of these causes are lower
