most older people don't get enough vitamin D

    Most older people don't get enough vitamin D.

    Older people usually don't get much sunshine to help them make vit D. They often also don't drink much milk, and there's not much vitamin D in most foods.

    Recommend vitamin D supplements...400 IU/day for adults...600 IU/day for people over age 70. Milk contains 100 IU per cup.
