Far less vitamin D needed for bone health, new study says – The San Diego Union-Tribune

(Updated to include a link to the newly released vitamin D study.)

The recommended dietary allowance of 800 International Units of vitamin D for bone health should be cut in half, according to a study released Sunday at the 2017 scientific meeting of the Endocrine Society.

An RDA of 400 IU of vitamin D daily is enough for 97.5 percent of the population, according to the study. The abstract can be found at j.mp/endo2017d.
