D-Light-Full Anti-Rickets Factor

Re: Can you please explain this more — “Olive oil exposed to direct sunlight ‘acquires a highly pronounced calcifying effect?'”
The “highly pronounced calcifying effect” is from antirachitic factor (anti-rickets factor).
Since there’s so much nonsense written about “vitamin D” and its many analogues, I’m reviving the old term — anti-rickets factor.
Here’s how to load up your olive oil with anti-rickets factor …
1) Pour olive oil out of your glass bottle onto a surface that will be directly exposed to the Sun at or around High Noon.
2) Expose it for 20 or 30 minutes to direct sunlight.
3) Pour your olive oil back into a brown glass bottle and store it in a dark place.
4) You can use that olive oil for up to ten months without losing a single bit of your anti-rickets factor.
If you leave your olive oil exposed to the Sun for longer than one hour, you will begin to lose anti-rickets factor (the highly pronounced calcifying effect).
24 hours of exposure will destroy all your anti-rickets factor, and the oil will be rancid and lose all its color.
Bright sunlight plus open air will also provide almost every food with a proper amount of probiotic and antibiotic metabolites too.

Hello Atom! How much of this Anti-Rickets Factor Olive Oil would one consume daily to theoretically get an amount equivalent to 200-300 IU vitamin D (less than the 400 IU you mention might mobilize the vitamin out of the bones)?
Could other oils be substituted to create this Anti-Rickets Factor oil, such as Sesame oil or butter oil (placed under Saran wrap to keep the bugs out, of course), or is there something special about the Olive oil in this case?

No need to depend on olive oil when ANY food stores vitamin D when exposed to direct sunlight within days of exposure (even pasta, straw, and feces).
(Docs might consider sun-irradiated fecal implants. Just kidding!)
ANY food can store full-spectrum vitamin D. Plant sources generally store D2 and animal sources, D3. Both might store D4, a major D in mushrooms.
