Thanks ! Very interesting. I am still in 'the structure and function camp,' but have wondered for years about what is causing the problematic structural issues - like scoliosis and all that can be part of that. So, perhaps it comes down to an issue with the mitochondria??

Merida, I think you mentioned blood clotting, or someone did, this is the part of the Dr. Bruce Ames Video that talks about Vitamin K and its function, including what it does to the Calcium balance in the body. This fellow is one to look for if you're seeking a biochemistry explanation of many of these vitamins that are so often suggested for metabolic problems.

Fast forward to 15min:24sec. for some reason the adding of the media tag erased my time stamp.
