disease, bone disease including osteoporosis, rickets and osteomalcia, autoimmune disease (such as multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid
arthritis), strokes, nervous system disorders (such as Parkinson's Disease) and type 1 and 2 diabetes. Depression and breast,
prostate and colon cancer have also been linked to Vitamin D deficiency.
