Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Here’s what we know.

    • The article reviews the evidence for a role of vitamin D in bone health, diabetes, and cancer.

    Most interesting is the diagram showing the metabolic pathway of vitamin D activation. The terms shown in the diagram are often discussed, but here we see their relationship to each other.
