Vitamin D and injury prevention
Johnson, Mary A., Kimlin, Michael G., & Porter, Kathryn N. (2010) Vitamin D and injury prevention. American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine, 4(1), pp. 21-24.
Vitamin D, along with calcium, may help decrease the risk of falls and fractures in older adults. Sunlight and other sources of ultraviolet radiation are not recommended because they increase the risk of skin cancers and sun-induced eye disorders. Rather, vitamin D and calcium needs should be met through foods and dietary supplements. As a preventive measure to reduce the risk of falls and fractures, it is recommended that older adults meet the 2005 Dietary Guidelines and consume 1000 IU of vitamin D, preferably as vitamin D3.
