Who said vitamin D could not be patented

A few of the over 1,000 vitamin D entries for US and International Patents.

Most were for Vitamin D analogs and vitamin D testing.

These provide some insight as to what vitamin D might help with, and shows vitamin D uses which cannot be mentioned for fear of having to pay patent royalties.

Interesting to note that a majority of the patents are for TREATING, not PREVENTING

A majority of these vitamin D patents are owned by Big Pharma.

Vitamin D patents became public - 1946 taken from Wisconsin Alumni 65 years ago

Note that H DeLuca has a lot to gain if vitamin D analog is 'shown' to be better than vitamin D

He was a consultant to the Institute of Medicine panel investigating vitamin D during 2010

Of the 3% of patents infringements which actually get to litigation, 40% are declared invalid in court

from Freakonomics- July 2011
