“Scientific research links vitamin D inadequacy to an increased risk for certain cancers, as well as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes—and higher intakes of vitamin D may help reduce the risk of developing these diseases. These are precisely the reasons we conducted our own extensive review of the scientific literature and sponsored two independent vitamin D research studies. We also recently adjusted our individual vitamin D intake recommendations based on an individual’s risk factors for vitamin D insufficiency.
“It has been estimated that as many as 80% of Americans may have ‘insufficient’ blood levels of vitamin D, and there are many reasons why low vitamin D levels seem to be commonplace today. The season or calendar month is a major risk factor for vitamin D insufficiency because sunlight during the winter months is less efficient at triggering vitamin D production in the skin.
“The risk for vitamin D insufficiency rises as sunscreen use and time spent indoors increase. The geographical latitude of your residence is another determinant of sun exposure, and those with darker skin are less efficient at converting sunlight to vitamin D. Other factors that can increase risks for vitamin D inadequacy include increasing age, increasing body mass index, lack of exercise, and limited intake of fish and other vitamin D-rich foods in the diet.”
