NPR.com interviews Michal Melamed, M.D., about new research that finds it’s healthy for adults to take 600 I.U. of Vitamin D, which supports the current IOM recommendations. Because very low levels of vitamin D can lead to kidney and skeletal problems but taking supplements has been linked to higher risk for kidney stones and certain cancers, Dr. Melamed likens maintaining the right levels to Goldilocks: not too high or too low, but just right. Dr. Melamed is associate professor of medicine and of epidemiology & population health.  (Thursday, November 01, 2012)
