I suggest you visit this doctors web site. I can't copy and paste the whole article, but there's a lot more about vit D on it.
By Dr. Mercola
If there ever was a Top Nutrient competition, vitamin D just might nab the title. It affects your DNA through vitamin D receptors (VDRs) that bind to specific locations on the human genome.
So far, scientists have identified nearly 3,000 genes that are influenced by vitamin D status, and a robust and growing body of research clearly shows that vitamin D is critical for optimal health and disease prevention.
This includes some of the more difficult-to-treat conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease,1 Parkinson’s, and multiple sclerosis2 (MS).
Vitamin D Deficiency Is Prevalent in MS
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, neurodegenerative disease of the nerves in your brain and spinal column, caused through a demyelization process. It has long been considered a “hopeless” disease with few treatment options.
The typical prescription for MS focuses on highly toxic medications like prednisone and interferon. However, research over the past few years suggests MS may be improved using a number of natural methods—including vitamin D.
Most recently, a study3, 4 presented at this year’s annual meeting of the American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine5 (AANEM) shows that vitamin D deficiency is surprisingly prevalent both among those diagnosed with MS, and patients suffering other neuromuscular conditions.
Here, vitamin D deficiency was defined as a 25(OH)D3 level of 30ng/ml or less. Of patients diagnosed with a neuromuscular condition, 48 percent were deficient in vitamin D. Only 14 percent were above “normal,” which here constituted a vitamin D level of 40 ng/ml. According to one of the authors:
“While the connection between vitamin D deficiency and neurologic disease is likely complex and not yet fully understood, this study may prompt physicians to consider checking vitamin D levels in their patients with neurologic conditions and supplementing when necessary.”
Besides this one, about a dozen other studies6 have also
America owes $200T in promises and the dollar, will one day be returned to us in bushel baskets. China doesn't care about the money owed them. They see what we are doing to ourselves. BTW China already collecting on it's debts.
Hope you still own RVM. Even an idiot like you, shouldn't lose everything.
Don't have a clue to what IESA is? I'm buying junior miners right now. That negative enterprise value that you always mention, well this is one of those rare moments, where you can find that kind of investment. This reminds me of 2000, 2008 where, had you been ahead of the curve, you could have made a lot of money.
The Treasury has run out Silver. China is buying metals up, Swiss are voting to make the banks carry 20% of their reserves in Gold. Next we learned that Japan is doing their own QE program. But this one is huge, they are buying up almost 100% of their own bonds. If we did that, we'd go to jail.
The thing was, that I was searching for a junior miner. Anytime you can find one with a negative enterprise value or close to it, they are steals. If what I believe is going to happen with metal prices, this will be a cash cow.
Maybe he used this as a veiled threat of resignation to force CDTI to make the announcement of ZPGM. He did a one eighty for some reason.
For sitting on the other board, was he not rewarded with free shares. So why give that up, unless the opportunity to be involved with something that has accelerated growth.
I don't listen to those chaps. The rigging of metals will end one day and you will be surprised what the real price of gold and specially silver will be. I would own some if I were you. That little mining company I told you about, the stock is up 20% already.
That $6.8B market cap is now in double jeopardy. I notice that the General council Pedro, exercised options last week. He held onto most of them. Note, states that he sold some, to offset the tax's.
Usually the lawyer types don't invest.
To the extent that, after the closing of the rights offering, there still remain unsubscribed shares of common stock of the Company, Lambda Investors LLC has committed to purchase any or all such remaining unsubscribed shares subject to the Company's satisfaction of certain conditions.
I have to say, you are taking dbtunr to school on this. The best part about what you found, was how Stillwater had to calm there shareholders on this resignation. Again why would Dr. Engels, leave a $1.5B company, to go with a $33M market cap?
The day after they announced the ZPGM, Engles decided to leave Stillwater and stay on CDTI board, why? Stillwater has a market cap of $1.58B as of today. Stock symbol SWC. The market cap here, $33M give or a take $1M. Pretty lopsided decision. Was this guy tired of getting those free shares to show up for SWC meetings?
Opps long term loss of $11.580. (calculated in 2009 you had 12,000 shares, that you paid $1 each (basis of $12,000). Then the 1 for 20 reverse split. You now have 600 shares. Then fast forward to the Telecominvest/mikey scheme. You sell those 600 shares, and buy them back. So when you sell them for .70, you activate a loss of $11.580 and since the time between buying them back is less than 31 days, you lose the write off.
You keep changing the rules. Who else, does that when they get stuck in a corner....hmmmm? You suggested to investors, that they could now sell their shares and buy all of them back in the RO. You ignored the fact that since most longs here, had seen a 1 for 20 on these shares, they have a huge loss. FIFO which most brokerage apply. So if you sell your shares that saw a 1 for 20 reverse split and then buy them back, in essence you are recording a loss, that cannot use, because under your theory, you now buy them back. Clearly you have given advice that is not very well thought out.
I also, do not recall your advice to only sell 12%. So if you have 5K shares and you sell 12%, you sell 600 shares at .70, buy back them back at .60 and record a $60 profit. (less brokerage commissions). -$14. (Sell and buy commission at Scottrade rates).
Under FIFO maybe you paid $1 for these shares in 2009. In reality you have a basis of $12,000. So you sell them under your plan and you would have a long term loss of $11,400. That get's put in limbo, all for a $46 gain.
This is why you have to be careful on who's giving you trading advice here. They clearly don't have your interests at heart. Before you state that you could wait the 30 day period, before you buy back, the time limits here are not in your favor of holding water. Only if they extended the dates by which you have to act. I'm sure the rules are in place to prevent people from getting a tax loss and ending up in the same position they were before the RO.
