Dr. Garland discusses the benefit from a daily dose of vitamin D3.
Dr. Cedric Garland:
It provides reduction of risk of a number of chronic diseases. It reduces the risk of fractures, falls, multiple sclerosis. It’s important in reducing the risk of certain kinds of cancer, according to observational studies such as breast cancer, colon cancer and ovarian cancer. We need more clinical trials to establish the appropriate amount, but it also will reduce the risk of type-1 diabetes in children and adults.
