Here are the show notes for this episode:
Today, Dr. Cannell interviews Dr. Joann Manson, a physician who is best known for her advocacy in the field of women’s health. She is a professor of epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health, a professor of Women’s Health at Harvard Medical School and the chief of the Division of Preventative Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. As if those credentials weren’t impressive enough, she is also the lead researcher for the VITAL Study.
The VITAL Study is an ongoing research study in 25,874 men and women ages 50 and up in the U.S. The goal of the study is to determine whether vitamin D supplementation of 2000 IU daily or omega 3 fatty acids reduces the risk for developing cancer, heart disease and stroke in healthy adults. The study will end in 2018, totaling a five year duration. This study will provide enormous insights regarding the benefits of vitamin D and omega 3 supplementation.
In this episode, Dr. John Cannell discusses the VITAL Study and its potential clinical implications with Dr. Joann Manson.
