Are the Benefits of Vitamin D Overhyped?

Recent research reviews looked at hundreds previous studies and find that there is little evidence that D protects against cancer or heart disease.

Something we also understand, vitamin D doesn't prevent fracture when taken alone. When taken with extra calcium it does appear to help prevent broken bones.
