Episode Description of “Vitamin D”
Vitamin D has received a lot of press in recent years, with rising awareness of its importance. In this straight forward interview with Dr. Zoltan Rona Vitamin D is clearly explained. With winter approaching, this is an important topic, especially for those in the Northern Hemisphere. Learn more about this important vitamin and how it affects you.
Dr. Risk’s Thoughts
The “fad” of vitamin D is way more than that. I prescribe it every day, and see major benefits when I do. I was excited to do this leading up to winter, as we are so under exposed to the sun in Canada. I also found this interview interesting to learn how much exposure and vitamin D that we do need. This vitamin is a must have for anyone in the Northern Hemisphere.
