Praise for Correcting the Vitamin D Deficiency Epidemic.
"Vitamin D deficiency plays an important role in many diseases that are disproportionally fatal to people of color. The author draws attention to this sad situation, and the need for all society, and concerned people of all ethnicities, to act upon it. Cedric Garland, PhD, Dr.PH, F.A.C.E Professor, University of California san Diego School of Medicine, La Jolla , CA
"The author has done a masterful job of synthesizing and organizing the emerging scientific information on the health benefits of vitamin D solar ultraviolet-B radiation, especially for black Americans. Her logical and very readable presentation should be required reading for every black family in the United States; white and brown Americans could learn much from it as well." William B. Grant, PhD Director, Sunlight, Nutrition and Health Research Center, San Francisco, CA.
"This book provides a much needed insight into the possible involvement of vitamin D deficiency as a major contributor to the well-known health disparities afflicting our African American community. Patients and physicians should heed this advice." Bruce W. Hollis, PhD, Professor of Pediatrics, Director of Pediatric Nutritional Sciences, The Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston SC.
Vitamin D deficiency is present in over two thirds of African Americans living in the United States. Several diseases common to African Americans are strongly associated with vitamin D deficiency. This book covers the links between vitamin D deficiency, vitamin D status in African Americans and the diseases associated with vitamin D deficiency." Vin Tangpricha, MD, PhD. Associate Professor of Medicine Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA
