The cost of providing vitamin D supplementation of 1,000 IU (International Units) per day for an individual is probably less than $2 per month, and providing adequate exposure to UVB radiation

in a special way.
Stewart's findings sparked vehement attacks not only from the medical profession--which had become enamored of X-ray technology, using it frequently--but also from the nuclear industry, which had long assured the public that low-level radiation
