The VITAL Study is an ongoing research study in 25,874 men and women ages 50 and up in the U.S. The goal of the study is to determine whether vitamin D supplementation of 2000 IU daily or omega 3 fatty acids reduces the risk for developing cancer, heart disease and stroke in healthy adults. The study will end in 2018, totaling a five year duration. This study will provide enormous insights regarding the benefits of vitamin D and omega 3 supplementation. In this episode, Dr. John Cannell discusses the VITAL Study and its potential clinical implications with Dr. Joann Manson.
