Abstract

Since the Dutch population has a high calcium intake, the impact of increasing vitamin-D levels is likely to be small. In population studies, vitamin-D supplementation was not shown to prevent fractures. Groups at risk for vitamin-D deficiency differ considerably with regard to dietary habits and attitudes toward measures of prevention. General food enrichment is not warranted; individual supplementation may be effective.
