16 Jul More Than Half the World’s Population Gets Insufficient Vitamin D

ScienceDaily: The July 2010 issue ofEndocrine Todayreports that half the people in North America and Western Europe get insufficient amounts of vitamin D. While the recommended daily intake of vitamin D is 200 international units (IU) for people up to 50 years old, most adults fail to get that much through their daily meals. Scientists propose increasing the recommended amounts to 2,000 to 4,000 IU.

Vitamin D is found in very few foods naturally and is, therefore, added to other foods such as milk, orange juice, some yogurts and some breakfast foods in an effort in increase the amount consumed through food.
