    Excellent, Dr. Cannell; and, thank you.

    As a person who has to take copious amounts of vitamin D to simply maintain an optimal 25(OH)D level I find your remarks about heritable vitamin D status really fascinating.

    I know my mood and my personality have both improved dramatically now that I am finally replete.

    Last year on a whim, I took a self-administered Aspergers test. I scored 102 out of a possible 200 points. What does this mean–who knows? By the way I was dismayed to learn that Aspergers is no longer classified as its own condition. This is a step backwards in my opinion.
