  1. Chronic Ethanol Exposure Effects on Vitamin D Levels Among Subjects with Alcohol Use Disorder (Ogunsakin et al., 2016)                                                                                   Overall, we have shown from our results that excessive consumption of alcohol can significantly lower the levels of inactive vitamin D (25(OH)D3), active vitamin D (1, 25(OH)2 D3), and antimicrobial peptide cathelicidin/LL-37 among subjects with AUD, especially in minority populations.
  2. Plausible ergogenic effects of vitamin D on athletic performance and recovery (Dahlquist et al., 2015)                                                                                                                  Vitamin D levels above the normal reference range (up to 100 nmol/L) might increase skeletal muscle function, decrease recovery time from training, increase both force and power production, and increase testosterone production, each of which could potentiate athletic performance.
  3. Vitamin D Deficiency (Holick, 2007)                                                                                  Undiagnosed vitamin D deficiency is not uncommon and 25-hydroxyvitamin D is the barometer for vitamin D status. Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D is not only a predictor of bone health, but is also an independent predictor of risk for cancer and other chronic diseases.
  4. Vitamin D and VDR in Gynecological Cancers—A Systematic Review                     (Deuster et al., 2017)                                                                                                                                              A large number of studies have displayed the crucial role vitamin D and its receptor have in gynaecological cancers. Preclinical, as well as epidemiological evidence, supports vitamin D’s risk-reducing influence in gynaecologic carcinomas . It is a widely shared opinion that vitamin D supplementation decreases the risk of developing cancer.
  5. Hospitalisation for children with rickets in England: a historical perspective (Goldacre et al., 2014)                                                                                                          Hospitalisation rates for rickets in England are the highest in five decades. 
  6. Vitamin D: importance in the prevention of cancers, type 1 diabetes, heart disease, and osteoporosis (Holick, 2003)                                                                                   Infants and young children who are vitamin D deficient may be imprinted for the rest of their lives with increased risks of type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and many common cancers. Adults are at increased risk of common cancers and cardiovascular disease.
