Here, we read that some original researchers of a study regarding acceptable levels of Vitamin D did not intend for their research to create the resulting “pandemic” known as Vitamin D deficiency. Certain lifestyles require more Vitamin D (and other vitamins, for that matter) than others. We should always be skeptical of one-size-fits-all proclamations.
