We can no longer wait to implement vitamin D programs in all walks of medicine – pregnancy, pediatrics, adult physicals, and disease treatment. Our disease incidence prevention chart gives a view of how much disease would be prevented if the population increased their serum 25(OH)D levels. The bars for each disease show the percent reduction in incidence at specific serum 25(OH)D levels compared to the reference serum level of 25 ng/ml (i.e. 83% fewer cases of breast cancer with a 25(OH)D level of at least 50 ng/ml vs. 25 ng/ml- pink bar).
