CAN $10 / YEAR PROTECT YOUR CHILD FROM THE FLU? The answer might be yes. A small trial of Vitamin D supplementation (1200 IU / day would run less than $6 for a year through our office) showed a 58% reduction in the risk of getting the flu in schoolchildren. This is not the first trial to show positive results.
Overall, the results in these studies have far outstripped the benefits of vaccination at a mere fraction of the costs. So will we see the CDC switching to spending millions of dollars educating the public about the benefits of rational sun exposure for our kids?
