Join Today! Get your vitamin D level tested and help spread the word!
GrassrootsHealth has launched a worldwide public health campaign to solve the vitamin D deficiency epidemic in a year through a focus on testing and education with all individuals spreading the word.
Everyone is invited to join in this campaign! Join D*action and test two times per year during a 5 year program to demonstrate the public health impact of this nutrient.
$60 and a quick health survey allows everyone to help sponsor the ‘open arm’ of this 5 year study. (The fee is $65 for a one-time sponsorship.) (There are many clinics participating and their fees may vary due to services offered by the clinic.)
get a vitamin D blood spot test kit to be used at home (except in the state of New York)
have the results sent directly to them
take action to adjust their own levels to get to the desired ranges with whatever help is needed from their healthcare practitioners.
With only 100 people joining up today, and getting 2 friends to join in 2 weeks (and those 2 friends getting 2 more), by week 42, there could be 400,000,000 people who are vitamin D ‘replete’! (more than the United States population)
