November is Vitamin D Awareness Month

"Even though you may get plenty of Vitamin D through sunlight in the Spring and Summer months, many people have a Vitamin D deficiency in Fall and Winter. While dairy provides a powerful punch of Vitamin D, sometimes it just isn’t enough." - http://www.suntancity.com/blog/vitamin-d-awareness-month

"Vitamin D deficiency is linked to a significantly higher risk of most cancers, heart disease, autoimmune diseases including the flu and costs the Canadian health care system more than $14 billion annually and is a direct cause of 37,000 premature deaths, according to a study published this year in the peer-reviewed journal Molecular Nutrition Food Research by vitamin D researcher Dr. William Grant." - https://smarttan.com/news/index.php/november-vitamin-d-awareness-month/

"It's National Vitamin D Awareness Month!
Why? Because 75% of American's are not getting the required amount for proper health and Vitamin D as a Pro-hormone plays a vital role in a number of health functions, like preventing and fighting off most forms of cancer, heart disease and is helpful for many seasonal related disorders like depression and fatigue." - http://myemail.constantcontact.com/Feb--is-Vitamin-D-awareness-month-.html?soid=1105083663754&aid=ywvP-sHYN74
