Recent discoveries indicate the current guidelines for vitamin D supplementation are antiquated. Vitamin D deficiencies are widespread and under-diagnosed. Decreased sun exposure and excessive use of sunscreen have led to vitamin D deficiencies in as many as 9% of American children and suboptimal levels are found in an additional 61%.

Low vitamin D levels have been associated with autism, ADD, susceptibility to infection, autoimmune diseases, and several cancers.
