Vitamin D Levels Among Canadians Have Dropped Sharply Since 2009 – Study

February 4, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Blood levels of vitamin D among Canadians are dropping dramatically across all age groups, according to a study by Statistics Canada, putting them at greater risk of serious disease. Canadians between the ages of 6 and 70 experienced a drop of 6.2 percent in average vitamin D levels between 2009 and 2011. The researchers encouraged implementation of public health action programs to urge vitamin D production and recommended that people get their vitamin D blood serum levels to between 100-150 nmol/L for best overall health and disease prevention
