"Recent findings showed no benefit of high-dose vitamin D (800 micrograms/day plus 2-5 micrograms Ca per day) on mortality, CV or all-cause morbidity, although there was no non-significant difference. More data are needed to clarify the relationship between vitamin D and cancer. Moreover, because of the observational study design we cannot establish causality. The effect of vitamin D on mortality could be secondary and in that case one will not find a significant effect on cause-specific mortality." - Anonymous Online Contributor
