After 2 years and 7 months, Prescribing Sunshine: Why vitamin D should be flying off shelves is finally premièring, in eBook form, on the Amazon Kindle, Kobo and as a multi-format download. Other digital editions will appear shortly. Please sign up to the mailing list for announcements of these. A paperback should be available before year end.
The book is a concise read featuring over 300 references.
Why should you buy the book? While there are at least a dozen titles on the subject, virtually none of them are written by non-American authors, fewer still are written from the perspective of a patient; and – crucially – none of them dare to probe the probe deeper implications of vitamin D science. There is also no repetition here. It might be slim but it hammers the central message in hard.
The book features exclusive interviews with vitamin D experts Oliver Gillie, Dr. David Grimes (author of Vitamin D & Cholesterol: The importance of the sun), Prof. Bruce Hollis (one of the most respected scientists in the field of vitamin D), and award-winning medical tele-journalist Joan Shenton.
Speaking of Joan Shenton, late last year she premièred her first full-length film, Positively False: Birth of a Heresy, which collates over a quarter of a century of personal archive footage demonstrating why HIV cannot be the cause of AIDS; at the very least not exclusively. The film can now be rented online or purchased for a reasonable fee via this link.
You might be wondering what HIV scepticism (or the misnomer ‘AIDS denialism’) has to do with vitamin D deficiency. Well, there is a worthy connection between both which is convincingly detailed in Prescribing Sunshine... The book is currently available for a miniscule £1.99, $2.99 or €2.68, so if you’ve got a few more dollars, euros or pounds to spare, you might want to check out this 64min documentary to fully understand why HIV scepticism is a legitimate scientific concern beyond the realm of quackery. There doesn’t appear to be much disagreement as to vitamin D being useful to HIV/AIDS patients, the dispute lies in the actual way in which it can be useful.
Now that the book has debuted, this long-inactive blog will now become more busy as a promotional tool and as a means of addressing any information in the book that may become obsolete over the years.
I look forward to posting here and hope that via the comments I can have interesting – friendly or antagonistic – discussions with anyone interested in the subject and related issues.
Also, please: If you like Prescribing Sunshine… and Positively False… please spread the word about them as they are both independent releases that require your support.
