    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“We don't know what the mechanism is. The effect of vitamin D on bones is well recognized, but vitamin D can also influence the growth of other types of cells in the body and the formation of connective tissue by other types of cells in the body. The tissues in the lung undergo a process of renewal and remodeling throughout life, and it is conceivable that vitamin D may influence this, but further work is necessary to find out if this is the case.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I don't think we have enough information based on this study alone to justify that sort of recommendation. I think the take-away message is that low vitamin D levels are not desirable. This doesn't just relate to lung function. A low vitamin D level is linked to bone disease, and an association has been suggested between low vitamin D levels and other diseases such as diabetes and coronary heart disease. The commonest reason for having a low vitamin D level is avoidance of sun exposure. While excessive sun exposure can cause damage to the skin, it is not desirable to completely avoid sun exposure if one is to maintain normal vitamin D levels.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The difference between the lowest and highest quintile of vitamin D levels [on the lung function tests] was 4 percent for both FEV1 and for FVC. This sounds small, but the changes seen in this study are large compared with most environmental factors that affect lung function.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The difference in lung function between the highest and lowest quintiles of vitamin D is substantial and greater than the difference between former and nonsmokers.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I'm in favor. The old limits were impractical to enforce. It seemed obvious that we needed a No Wake Zone.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“We would ask that the press respect our client's and his family's privacy and any further statements will be released through these offices.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“We have advised our client that in the light of the police investigation it would be quite inappropriate for him to make any statement at the present time, other than to state that he categorically denies the allegations and will be contesting them vigorously.”
