DON'T TAKE D2!!!: STOP TAKING Vit D2 immediately. An analysis of 50 studies showed those who take D3 had a 6% decrease in mortality whereas D2 actually increased mortality by 2%! NO ONE SHOULD TAKE D2! See http://bit.ly/1hC250m Please stop D2. Most adults need 5-8000 iu/day of D3 to achieve optimal levels. See http://bit.ly/1gNXNk0 Please share this info with the pharmacist and/or the doc who prescribed D2!!!
