Another Finding about Vitamin D
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has issued their own recommendation about Vitamin D and Calcium supplements, and they say there is no evidence that taking supplements prevents cancer or helps people avoid bone fractures. Since taking the supplements can cause kidney stones, they recommend against supplements for most people. This a hot topic for research and many doctors feel strongly that Vitamin D supplements have real benefits, so this is certainly not the last you will hear about it.
