Two articles on PainSci cite Vieth 2007: (1) The Complete Guide to Trigger Points & Myofascial Pain (2) Vitamin D for Pain
PainSci notes on Vieth 2007:
There is plenty of evidence that vitamin D is an important and necessary supplement to our diet; however, the authors of this article believe that Vitamin D supplementation is not necessarily effective, efficient, or high enough. Getting plenty of Vitamin D in the diet is one of the best answer, say the authors, while other things need to be done, such as the safe, moderate exposure to ultra-violet light.
The authors conclude: “Because of the convincing evidence for benefit and the strong evidence of safety, we urge those who have the ability to support public health—the media, vitamin manufacturers, and policy makers—to undertake new initiatives that will have a realistic chance of making a difference in terms of vitamin D nutrition. We call for international agencies such as the Food and Nutrition Board and the European Commission's Health and Consumer Protection Directorate-General to reassess as a matter of high priority their dietary recommendations for vitamin D, because the formal nationwide advice from health agencies needs to be changed.”
