Mostly anthropology here, but the comments about Vitamin D rich hunter-gatherer diets vs. nutrient-poor farmer diets and the change in skin color is interesting.
Cheddar Man is such a good name anyway.

Default Breast Cancer

Wife of coworker got breast cancer. Was going in to surgery three weeks after as cancer was progressive kind.

Coworker asked me what protocol/research I had for breast cancer.

Gave him articles on vitamin D3 and breast cancer and gave him a protocol for her to do before surgery and for 3 months after surgery.

vitamin D3, 100k/day
vitamin A, 50k/day
chelated magnesium, 400-600 mg/day in divided doses
vitamin k2, 100 mcg/day
nattokinase, 200 mg/day
vitamin C, time released, 6-10k/day in divided doses

Told him even though there were only 3 weeks until surgery it wouldn't hurt and might help and that it was super important to continue the protocol for the three months after surgery.

Told him to be sure they did another ultrasound before surgery because cancer might have shrunk though I wasn't really expecting it due to the short timeline.

Wife went in to prep for surgery. Cancer had stopped growing, shrunk 2 cm, and looked to be "encapsulated", i.e. no tendrils. Surgeon went in and took it out. No lymph node involvement.

Everyone was pleased.

nattokinase, 200 mg/day
vitamin C, time released, 6-10k/day in divided doses

.



I have been reading a book on teeth health and other source on bone health, and all the above are listed as recommendations to get enough of these on a daily basis for good general health. While the dosing above is clearly theraputic levels, I cant help but wonder how deficient our diets have become.

Funnily enough vitamin D3 deficiency is highly correlated with acute leukemia.

Leukemia is cancer of the blood or bone marrow so the protocol may well be beneficial, especially as vitami D has been found to correct gene/cell abnormalities.

There's quite a bit of research on vitamin D3 and leukemia.

And there seems to be a protocol for that as well
