    I would just like to point out if you go to the link above “Study finds limited benefit for vitamin D in asthma treatment” you will find the following.
    “When they looked only at the 82 percent of patients who received vitamin D supplements and showed an increase in their blood vitamin D levels above the critical threshold, Castro said they saw some intriguing results.”
    “Compared with placebo, the patients in the treatment group that achieved vitamin D sufficiency in the blood (with an average of 42 nanograms of vitamin D per milliliter) did show improved asthma control.” “They had 40 percent fewer treatment failures that required more medication and half the number of asthma attacks.”
