The summary below is taken from the article Vitamin D and Infections

People have forgotten that solariums were the old ways that tuberculous was treated now that antibiotics have surfaced.

Solariums did NOT raise Vitamin D blood levels to the Healthy Range which will be more effective now that we know more. In the report, it states that "Median vitamin D level for the 128 cohort participants was 9.1 ng/mL (interquatrile range [IQR] 5.3–14.7); levels were 9.6 ng/mL (IQR 5.8–19.1) for 100 disease-free contacts, 7.9 ng/mL (IQR 4.7–10.3) for 20 TB index case-patients, 4.6 ng/mL (IQR 4.0–5.2) for 2 co-prevalent TB case-patients who were receiving anti-tuberculous treatment at recruitment, and 5.1 ng/mL (IQR 3.4–14.3) in 6 household contacts with a history of TB treatment (2–10 years) (Figure 1, panel A). In the 100 disease-free household contacts, vitamin D levels were significantly higher than in the 28 participants with a history of TB diagnosis at baseline (p = 0.02; Mann-Whitney U test) (Figure 1, panel B). Median vitamin D levels were significantly lower in the 74 female patients than in the 54 male patients."

Note that those people who had tuberculous were DEEP within the Risky Range.

It takes one molecule of 25(OH)D to kill one bacterium of any kind or one virus. Vitamin D will cost only about 35¢ per day per person. With the antibiotic resistance of TB in Moldavia and Russia, it is important to get their blood leve and the rest of world to cure TB. Since Vitamin D kills virii, it may also be a cure for AIDS/HIV.

The most significant action that we can take as nation to reduce health care costs is to get everybody's blood level to the Healthy Range.
