It may be vitamin D's day in the sun

I know, I know, another Vitamin D article------from the LA Times. I am hoping that when the Institute of Medicine meets this week, we can get some sort of definitive information on the paramaters of daily Vitamin D3 needed to maintain healthy levels. I have been taking 5000 IU's for three years now, but it is under a doctor's supervision----and I feel great. Talk to your doctor about how much you need to take, how to get it (big controversy now is how much if any sun is safe---and using sunscreens).
