Dr. Cannell discusses new research which showed that vitamin D is involved in regulating three genes that are abnormally expressed in autism.

Tom Weishaar examines how the methodology behind Mendelian randomization can determine direction of causality.
We know that vitamin D controls up to 5% of the human genome. Researchers recently looked at a large number of genes before and after vitamin D supplementation.
Researchers studied the genes of 11 children with vitamin D deficiency comparing them to 11 matched controls.
Anywhere from 3% to 10% of the active human genome is directly or indirectly signaled by vitamin D, including genes with a role in depression.
New research suggests vitamin D is a powerful natural antioxidant and aids in DNA repair.
Dr Cannell reviews a paper covering the influence vitamin D has on DNA repair genes and its role in repairing DNA “double stranded breaks.”
It is possible that (vitamin D) directly regulates the expression of a variety of genes whose protein products are involved in DNA damage repair.
Dr. Cannell reviews a paper on vitamin D receptor sites on the human genome.
Dr. Cannell mulls over genes, inheritance and vitamin D.
