Vitamin D Update – William Grant

Vitamin D Update – William Grant, PhD (October 2017)

“Vitamin D Update” is a presentation by William Grant, PhD  that took place on October 19, 2017 at Silicon Valley Health Institute.

Vitamin D is a vitamin that improves most of the contributing factors to chronic disease including inflammation and oxidative stress. It has been shown to be beneficial in conditions such as autism, diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, depression, psoriasis, osteoporosis, respiratory tract infections, cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease, food allergies, and pregnancy.

William B. Grant has PhD in physics from the University of California, Berkeley (1971). He had a 30-year career in atmospheric sciences with an emphasis on laser remote sensing of atmospheric constituents such as ozone and aerosols, with positions at SRI International (1973-79), the Jet Propulsion Laboratory/California Intitute of Technology (1979-89) and NASA Langley Research Center (1989-2004).  He turned to health research in 1996, publishing the first paper linking diet to risk of Alzheimer’s disease in 1997, followed by studies of sugar, fat and coronary heart disease in 1998, and animal products and cancer risk in 1998. In 1999 he turned his attention to the role of solar ultraviolet-B exposure in reducing risk of many types of cancer through production of vitamin D in 2002. After retirement from NASA in 2004, he moved to San Francisco and formed the nonprofit organization Sunlight, Nutrition and Health Research Center (http://www.sunarc.org), where he spends most of his time studying the role of solar UVB exposure and vitamin D in reducing risk of cancer and many other types of disease. He also investigates the role of diet in risk of Alzheimer’s disease and cancer. He has about 300 health publications listed at www.pubmed.gov, of which 210 are related to vitamin D, with 78 of

these also on ultraviolet radiation and human health, and 41 to diet and disease.
