Take 600 to 2,000 IU of vitamin D per day to reduce your risk of developing cancer


Take 600 to 2,000 IU of vitamin D per day to reduce your risk of developing cancer.

Vitamin D is found in some foods:
– salmon
– tuna
– egg yolk
– cow/rice milk
– orange juice
– sun exposure
In Canada, from Oct-March sun intensity is minimal, so the intake of vitamin D should be increased.

You may talk with your health care provider to know more about this.

If you have osteoporosis, you will need to increase your intake of vitamin D and C.  Visit the webiste of Osteoporosis Canada to know more  about it.

    Mel, I wanted you to know how much I appreciate and enjoy your Online Friday chair yoga classes. It is so nice to see your smiling face and dedication teaching us. I hope that one day soon we will be able to return to the center to meet up again with all our friends.  Stay well and please keep your nice smile.  

    - Irmgard,

    Mel, thank you so much for offering Online Fitness Classes!  I love all your videos.  You provide a great variety of exercises and it can be modified to make it harder which is great.  I was telling everyone because I am used to your style of yoga, when I close my eyes and hear your voice, it’s like we are in the same room.  Much love, Jackie.
