According to a new study conducted by researchers from University of California at San Diego, more vitamin D can cut the  risk  of several major conditions, including breast cancer. Study co-author Dr. Cedric Garland, a professor of family and preventive medicine at the University of California at San Diego, declared in a statement that daily intakes of vitamin D by adults in the range of 4,000-8,000 IU are needed to reduce the risk of several diseases such as breast cancer, multiple sclerosis, colon cancer and type 1 diabetes.Vitamin D supplements can be found in pills or capsules containing 1,000 or 2,000 international units. However, researchers said the 4,000 to 8,000 IU a day is still much lower than the range considered to be safe by the National  Academy  of Science’s Institute of Medicine.The clinical survey was based on another  study  of several thousand patients  who have been taking supplements ranging from 1,000 to 10,000 IU per day. The subjects have also undergone several  blood tests to determine the levels of vitamin D metabolites circulating in their blood.Last year, according to an announcement released by the National Academy of Sciences Institute of Medicine (IOM) committee,  4,000 IU a day of vitamin D was safe for adults and kids aged 9 and up.The report released by Garland and his colleagues suggested that 4,000 IU a day is a safe level and that soon it would become common for adult to take the dose daily.Source:
