GrassrootsHealth webinar series: Vitamin D and autism

Last month I gave an online presentation on the link between autism and vitamin D, where evidence currently stands and a look at future directions. This was part of GrassrootsHealth series and can be watched in its entirety:

Some have emailed asking for the PowerPoint presentation, so that they can read the slides themselves. You can download it here:

Cannell JJ. Vitamin D and Autism: A look at the evidence that links the two. April, 2013

It was an honor to give the presentation and I hope you enjoy.

    along with comments on the excellent presentation, and an interesting
    answer to question #30 about taking too much vitamin D

    I did review Dr. C’s link to the “slides” but had not watched the webinar and did not know that it continued with questions and answers. Thanks for pointing out question #30 and the answer!!!

    Rita and Misty, the link to the paper in your comment doesn’t work. Try it again.

    @Mark Haymond,

    It’s opening for me…but I am on an institutional server…perhaps it requires a paid subscription…

    That particular article by Dr. Cannell is one of my favorite articles, and it is worth a read.

    Anyone who is interested in the article, please email me at my personal email account: umileritac@aol.com.

    I will send you an adobe version.
