Most people get no benefit from vitamin D supplements

The latest from pediatrician and researcher Aaron Carroll:


In brief, numerous controlled trials have been done to test whether taking vitamin D supplements makes people healthier, and that research suggests it doesn’t, not for osteoporosis or osteoarthritis or cancer prevention or much of anything else except for individuals who actually have a vitamin D deficiency, which is actually pretty rare.

For more details and links to the research, see Dr Carroll’s article on the website for The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
