Episode 73: Vitamin D – dose, diet and dermatologists – Part II

In episode 73, we try to put Vitamin D levels into context and Tina Korownyk once again is here to help us decipher the evidence for Vitamin D supplementation when it comes to fractures, falls and overall mortality. At the end of the podcast Mike, James and Tina don their swim gear and go outside without sunscreen on to make some Vitamin D, although Mike and Tina quickly realise they live in Edmonton and it’s wintertime.
