    • Excerpt: “The role of vitamin D in human health is an enigma. Associations have been reported between low serum concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D) and a wide range of disorders and diseases, including (but not limited to) cancer, cardiovascular disease, metabolic disorders, infectious diseases, autoimmune diseases, pregnancy-related outcomes, skeletal disorders, respiratory disease, multiple sclerosis, mental health disorders, and inflammation, as well as mortality.1, 2 If causal, these associations would suggest that vitamin D deficiency can cause a substantive burden of disease and mortality, particularly in populations in which vitamin D deficiency is prevalent, and that supplementation with vitamin D could have widespread therapeutic benefits. “
