Vitamin D: increases glutathione, induces glioma apoptosis

New data shows that vitamin D has more biochemical actions that anticipated:
--inhibits the synthesis of inducible nitric oxide synthase
--increases intracellular glutathione levels-->helps remove mercury & other toxins from your body
--could be used to Tx neurodegenerative and neuroimmune diseases
--induces glioma cell death-->good for management of brain tumors?

According to Dr. Cannel, founder of the Vitamin D Council, in an interview:
--vitamin D is not a vitamin, but rather the only known substrate for a powerful repair and maintenance steroid hormone that is involved in numerous functions of your body and organs
--like all steroid hormones vit D regulates your body by turning your genes on or off
--you have about 2,000 genes that are directly influenced by vitamin D
