For the fifth year in a row, November 2nd is Vitamin D Day. The day is dedicated to spreading awareness on vitamin D and vitamin D deficiency.Vitamin D deficiency is a world problem.

Organizers are calling for the public to recognize the day and help spread awareness on the issue.

In the winter it’s even harder to get enough vitamin D. The sun shifts its focus to the southern hemisphere, and much of the population in the northern hemisphere can no longer get the vitamin D they need from the sun, making it important to seek other sources, like supplements or lamps with UVB.

Researchers continue to uncover evidence that links low vitamin D status to a higher prevalence of a variety of autoimmune disorders such as multiple sclerosis, and other diseases like breast and colon cancer, cardiovascular disease, and various infections. In spreading awareness of the potential health benefits of vitamin D, organizers hope to reduce the incidence of some of these diseases in the long run.
