Vitamin D is considered the sunshine vitamin since our bodies can produce it when exposed to sunlight.  We can also get Vitamin D from foods and supplements.  Do you take a Vitamin D supplement daily?  Living in Canada we have traditionally been encouraged to take a Vitamin D Supplement.  New research is suggesting that it may not be as important as once thought.

“Dr. Iris Gorfinkel, a family doctor in Toronto, said the study’s results don’t “come as a complete surprise.” She already advises her patients to “drop the D.”
