Give Your Immune System A Boost

Dear Bob,

I have recently decided to start taking Vitamin D3 in the hopes of strengthening my immune system. I seem to get sick at least twice per year(I am right now), and I’m tired of relying on antibiotics to cure me. I was wondering how much D3 you would recommend I take per day (I bought 5000 UI capsules). I am 16 years old. I’m about 5 feet 11 inches tall, and I weigh roughly 145 pounds. Also, I was wondering if there is anything else you would recommend I take in order to improve my immune system and overall health.

Sincerely,

Aaron M

Macular Degeneration And Aspirin

According to Healing the Eye and Wellness Center, long-term use of aspirin is a factor in age-related macular degeneration.

Regular aspirin users are more likely to develop the “wet” form of age-related macular degeneration compared to people who take aspirin rarely or never. Aspirin is one of the most widely used drugs in the world. Millions of people with heart disease take a daily low dose of aspirin, which they believe will prevent heart attacks and stroke. Aspirin is actually a blood thinner and may have some merit as such, doctors say.

Toxins, Carcinogens Found In More Than 5,000 Children’s Products

Toxic metals like cadmium, mercury and antimony and organic compounds like phthalates are among more than 41 chemicals identified as harmful to children that are found in more than 5,000 children’s products, according to reports filed with the Washington State Department of Ecology. The toxins are linked to cancer, hormone disruption and reproductive problems.

Major manufacturers who reported using these chemicals include Wal-Mart, Gap, Gymboree, Hallmark and H&M. Some of these lobbied hard to defeat a Washington State bill, the Toxic-Free Kids and Families Act, that would have required manufacturers to stop using flame retardants in children’s products and find safer ways of manufacturing products for children.
