Robert Rountree, MD, a practicing physician in Boulder, Colorado, and medical editor for Delicious Living magazine, puts the IOM’s new vitamin recommendations into context for other health care practitioners and their patients, and discusses the potential ramifications of the new guidelines on public health.

“Where do you see multiple sclerosis? You see it in places where people are more likely to have a vitamin D deficiency,” Rountree says. “I have a great deal of concern that if they tell people, ‘Don’t take vitamin D. Don’t even measure your levels,’ that we may see the incidence of MS go up.”
