GrassrootsHealth has launched a worldwide public health campaign to solve the vitamin D deficiency epidemic in a year through a focus on testing and education with all individuals spreading the word.I signed up. As a participant, you pay $40 every 6 months to receive a vitamin D lab test delivered to your door, and you agree to fill in some surveys along the way, over a 5 year period. You can't beat the price for the vitamin D test, and your participation will contribute greatly to our understanding of the health protective effects of vitamin D.
Everyone is invited to join in this campaign! Join Daction and test two times per year during a 5 year program to demonstrate the public health impact of this nutrient.
$40 and a quick health survey allows everyone to
- get a vitamin D blood spot test kit to be used at home (except in the state of New York)
- have the results sent directly to them
- take action to adjust their own levels to get to the desired ranges with whatever help is needed from their healthcare practitioners.
With only 100 people joining up today, and getting 2 friends to join in 2 weeks (and those 2 friends getting 2 more), by week 42, there could be 400,000,000 people who are vitamin D ‘replete’! (more than the United States population)
