The US Preventive Services Task Force recently issued, and the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published, a report saying there was insufficient evidence to support vitamin D screening. It is a baffling conclusion, given the evidence suggesting vitamin D's key role in protecting us not just from COVID-19, but from other chronic disease as well. And with millions of Americans deficient, particularly minority groups and communities of color, it is particularly irresponsible not to recommend routine screenings.
Write to JAMA and tell them to pull this article.
