Are You Fully Vaccinated Without the Booster? A number of clients were concerned that they will not be considered fully vaccinated if they don't get the booster.

Amazing Vitamin D Development Steve and Bonnie: Researchers from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard, publishing in The American Gastroenterology Association's journal Gastroenterology, have discovered a link between lowering colorectal cancer risk in younger adults and vitamin D. Colorectal cancer risk has increased in younger people (50 years of age and younger) as vitamin D deficiency has become more pervasive. The researchers suggest that even as little as 400IU of vitamin D3 daily can reduce young age-onset colorectal cancer risk by 50%! This study was performed by some of most prestigious research institutions in the world, and published in the preeminent gastroenterology journal in America, yet did any of you hear about this? Probably not.
