The model shows that the animal should have a target body weight above which it loses weight and below which it tries to gain weight.

If you’re worried about the side effects of birth control—or if you ..

But, I have a feeling the doctors are going to tell me to stay on it to “reduce my risk of ovarian cancer and other cysts” (my grandmother died of ovarian cancer)– I was wondering if there was ANY alternative to birth control???

Reason #1: “I don’t want to get fat.” Weight gain was, once upon a time, a genuine concern for women on the pill. But this specific side effect is characteristic of earlier versions of oral contraceptives.

2.) Another very serious issue is what exactly is the content of the packets? These vitamin extracts are notoriously poorly characterized. I know of older studies that showed variations on the order of 800% or more in the vitamin content of a particular tablet. So what is the quality control on the supplement dosage?

Trust me. This is no small matter. A big problem with many vitamins in the USA is that what you read is NOT what you get. German and Swiss pharma sources have probably the best control of dose and contaminants. The USA just doesn't.

I won't hold my breath. Why focus on one (or two) chemicals when overall health seems to be the primary objective? What makes vitamin D uniquely important? It amazes me how much effort is made toward understanding just one (or two) chemical(s) when they cannot be isolated and tracked in an experiment. Garbage in, garbage out. In my opinion, the philosophy of distilling nature down to a specific pharmacology is not appropriate in this context. Why? Because "overall health" is the primary objective and not the prevention of a specific disease caused by a specific molecular manifestation (eg. breast cancer driven by HER2 amplification). My guess is that a holistic approach would be more useful. In this case, design a trial to compare a balanced but strictly vegetarian (or vegan) diet versus a typical American one. Through simple but smart questionnaires, I bet you would find a more profound, and meaningful, answer. You may not find the "silver bullet" chemical but you may find the "silver bullet" behavior. I'm not going to hold my breath for this one either.

I commend the researchers for taking on an unpopular task. However, I won't hold my breath. There appear to be too many confounding factors in order to accurately isolate a cause-effect relationship. I'd like to take a step back and ask the following: What makes vitamin D uniquely important? It amazes me how much effort is made toward understanding just one (or two) chemical(s) when they cannot be isolated and tracked in an experiment. In my opinion, the philosophy of distilling nature down to a specific pharmacology is not appropriate in this context. Why? Because "overall health" is the primary objective and not the prevention of a specific disease caused by a specific molecular manifestation (eg. breast cancer driven by HER2 amplification). My guess is that a holistic approach would be more useful. In this case, design a trial to compare a balanced but strictly vegetarian (or vegan) diet versus a typical American one. The evidence is equally (or more) compelling than vitamins D in isolation. Through simple but smart questionnaires, I bet you would find a more profound, and meaningful, answer. You may not find the single magical chemical but you may find the better behavior (for both individual and society). I'm not going to hold my breath for this one either.
