Two recent publications have challenged whether supplemental vitamin D is indeed of any value. We have worked with Dr. Joe Mercola of to help put together this article with comments from scientists regarding the controversy.   


Mercola vitamin D Controversy  


Abstracts from the publications in question are available:  

Vitamin D status and ill health: a systematic review 


The effect of vitamin D supplementation on skeletal, vascular, or cancer outcomes: a trial sequential meta-analysis 


Please take a look at the article from Dr. Mercola (including the video interview with Dr. Cedric Garland), as well as the abstracts from the original publications, and let us know what questions YOU have.  As noted in the interview, our goal is always to provide each of you with the best scientific information you can use to guide your own health choices.

Additional videos of scientists' responses to the question of whether vitamin D supplementation is useful will be posted on our Scientists Answer YOUR Questions webpage within the coming weeks.   



Thanks so very much for your active participation in this D*action project. It is an opportunity for us all to truly save lives.
