Over 65s should take high dose vitamin D to prevent falls, say researchers
First, this is a prime example of how much confusion there is about what constitutes a "high dose" of Vitamin D (I've long said the appropriate dose for you is what you and your doctor decide on --- for me it's 5000 IU's daily). Although this article from Physorg.com might not seem relevant right now (if you are not considered elderly) it does point out the need for Vitamin D, and it's also worth talking to your parents, grandparents, etc. about to help them live healthier lives.
