Getting enough vitamin D during infancy and childhood is associated with a reduced risk of islet autoimmunity among children at increased genetic risk for type 1 diabetes, according to a study published in the journal Diabetes.
Preventing chronic diseases such as type 1 diabetes is not only dependent on getting enough vitamin D. As Dr. Rath’s Cellular Medicine concept explains, the primary cause of today’s most common chronic diseases is a long-term deficiency of various vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other specific micronutrients. An optimum daily intake of these dietary elements is therefore a basic preventative measure for maintaining health, as well as the safe and effective control of many pathological conditions.
Our Foundation firmly believes that the scientific principles of Cellular Medicine can and should form the basis of a new global preventive healthcare system. Each day that the implementation of this new approach is delayed, thousands of patients worldwide will continue to suffer and die from preventable diseases that are not actually real “diseases” at all but are simply the consequences of a chronic deficiency of essential micronutrients. How soon this new global healthcare system comes about is therefore up to us, the people. Each and every one of us has it in our hands to inform others and save lives.
