Study casts doubt

Study casts doubt on whether extra vitamin D prevents disease

Reuters, December 6, 2013.

Researchers cast doubt on the prevailing wisdom that vitamin D supplements can prevent conditions like cancer, diabetes and heart disease, saying today low vitamin D may be a consequence, not a cause, of ill health.

The findings could have implications for millions of people who take vitamin D pills and other supplements to ward off illness - Americans spend an estimated $600 million (RM1.9 billion) a year on them alone.

That's interesting.... gonna have to re-assess any potential benefits. Tooo many contradictory studies out there... it's good for you, it's bad for you, it does nothing... oy vey.

Not only on Vitamin D but everything.

Considering where you live, Vitamin D will probably never be a concern. :yes:

This is sooo true, LL. With media bandwagons and doctors who sell stuff in their office, magazine articles that repeat through every magazine, the popularity/profit of any "health" book, etc.

I have found some just as credible counter arguments for so much we are told.

It is troubling and confusing.
