Chinese researchers provide new evidence that vitamins A and D work together in cooperative fashion, each increasing production of the other's receptor. In pancreatic stem cells, they synergize to flip on the "neurogenin-3" switch, involved in turning stem cells into fully functional insulin-producing cells. Neither vitamin is effective alone, however. This suggests that vitamins A and D may hold the key to curing type 1 diabetes. In their discussion, they provide a brief defense of the use of cod liver oil in pregnancy and cite my 2009 Wise Traditions article "The Cod Liver Oil Debate: Science Validates the Benefits of Our Number One Superfood."
