Whether this person is just plain crazy, incredibly ignorant, a science person, or just sadly misinformed makes little difference. Vitamin D supplementation is neither toxic, nor results in calcium calcification in soft body tissues.
The Natural Health Perspective is a health rather than a medically oriented site. We obviously could care less about what individual members of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) might or might NOT have concluded, nor what specific practitioners of conventional medicine might or might NOT have concluded. The Natural Health Perspective after all likes to report on genuine scientific research that tends to support our natural health position rather than on the outright prescription medication / vaccine research fraud being routinely published in the name of science. The science behind supplementing with vitamin D being safe has already been covered ad infinitum elsewhere on this site.
While many science people would consider serum blood levels of 25-hydroxy vitamin D at 20 ng/mL more than adequate, the Natural Health Perspective certainly would not.
The owner and operator of this Web site has been using himself as a human guinea pig for over three (3) years by keeping his blood levels of vitamin D well above what this site has publicly recommended.
Whether or not there is, a vitamin D revolution depends entirely upon you. Nobody is forcing anyone to supplement with vitamin D. We strongly advise everyone to discuss our recommendations with a health care professional of their choice before starting a vitamin D supplementation program of their own. The vitamin D revolution is taking place one person, at a time. Are you a member of it?
Here is what has happened to the owner and operator of this site.
Supplementing with Vitamin D
Is 5,000 IU of Vitamin D per Day, for an adult, Too Much?
The Vitamin D Experiment Begins
Just like most people, the fantastic health claims of the vitamin D advocates were not taken seriously for many years.
Then something on the Web caught his interest. While for years he had been taking 400 IU a day from cod liver oil, he started experimenting with 2,000 IU of vitamin D a day for the very first time in April 2011. It did not take him long at all to double his dosage, as well as sun himself as much as possible. Three months later, he took his first vitamin D blood test.
Genuine LabCorp blood draw tests
- 7/29/11 - Smart People Get Their Blood Tested - 103.0 ng/mL
- 1/14/12 - 25-hydroxy vitamin D - 90.8 ng/mL
- 8/22/13 - Vitamin D is Safe
- Vitamin D 73.4 ng/mL
- Serum Calcium - 9.0 mg/dL
Then as an end point in proving that vitamin D is safe, he took six (6) different medical tests on 7/16/14 that evaluated his risks for heart disease and stroke, as well as for soft tissue calcification / blockage. They were the same tests that are so often used in published health research.

If they are displayed in a tab, then you can right click on them in order to export / save. If that still does NOT work, then you could always try using a different Web browser.
In short, he tested normal on all of these genuine medical tests. In one case, he was diagnosed with Sinus Bradycardia, or a slow heart rate / pulse; a health condition that many senior citizens would be envious of.
