    Much of this article is true but what is missing is the fact that our medical education and training system does not teach doctors about these alternatives. Thus for their own protection they will always recomend not using anything they haven't been trained in!

        Its important to remember its not how much you take, its how much you absorb. Vit. D requires fat at the time of digestion to absorb properly. I keep my levels above 50 ( determined by blood test) and allways take with the most fatty meal of the day.

          This sounds like a flawed report. It does not take into acount the quality and outcome of the services with informed patients resulting in better treatments with less returns for further procedures. Getting it right the first time is a long term gain for both patient and provider and cant be negated by short term savings promoted by insurance companies. Be informed, ask questions, get proper care!

                      Has any one been diagnosed with "Basaloid Squamous cell carcinoma" ? I find it is very rare,and my docs cant be sure of primary. Had lymph node involvement in left axialary (left arm pit). Only recomendation is local radiation at this time.
