FERNDALE, Wash., March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Nationally recognized vitamin D expert Michael F. Holick, Ph.D., M.D., of Boston University Medical Center recommends Wellesse® Liquid Vitamin D3 for children and adults in his new book, "The Vitamin D Solution: A 3-Step Strategy to Cure our Most Common Health Problem."
