Why the vitamin D shortage?

Vitamin D is critical for immune system function. Studies show a link between low vitamin D levels and the risk of coming down with influenza. Vitamin D works within the immune system to reduce levels of inflammatory proteins as well as increase amounts of antimicrobial proteins to destroy invading pathogens. This is a one-two punch to fight infections. Vitamin D deficiency is also a huge player in cancer because vitamin D receptors are found on the surface of cells to direct a cell to either divide or die. In addition to helping to stave off flu and fight cancer, adequate vitamin D levels protect against heart disease, osteoporosis, seasonal affective disorder, premature aging and many other health problems. Why are we as a race of humans becoming so deficient in vitamin D these days? I blame glyphosate (Roundup) that is now ubiquitous in our environment. Glyphosate hinders the body’s ability to synthesize vitamin D.
