Title: you just can't win
Post by: rncembal on November 17, 2011, 04:00 PM
We read all the concerns for Skin cancer here and elsewhere. Many of us follow the strict hat, shades and sun sreen practices. Today I find out I have a vitamin D deficiency . But I'm cancer free for now

I always have a healthy criticism of whatever my doctor tells me. 

I'm willing to bet that most everyone here has been told the same thing about vitamin D from their doctor as well (I have).  So, why now?  It's not like our understanding of dietary requirements have changed all that much in the last year, has it?

I can't say that it will work for you but, for me, it has - so far.
I am a long time flier- more than 25 years - and I have used NO ADD Sun Block (which can be found at Drug Store.com.), for at least 5 years. I use 50 or 60 SPF.  The stuff is about the same consistency of cold cream but it blocks the sun very effectively. It works for me. I buy a bottle at the beginning of the year and it lasts all year. I fly year round at least 3 days a week. Costs about $8.00. AND -

 IT TASTES LIKE CHICKEN!!!

( just a joke - don't drink it.) Really, It tastes awful.

Just setting you up for your Boniva shots, you have checked the cost of those right?

At least I'm old enough to find Sally Field still has it. I had amuscle tear that wouldn;t heal so I had  blood screen . Way low and a little websearch research tells me the big belly isn't helping . Out side of buggy ballast it's not been good for much
