How the RDA for Vitamin D Was Determined

A recent Viewpoint in the Journal of the American Medical Association written by two committee members that authored the 2011 IOM report Dietary Reference Intakes for Calcium and Vitamin D reaffirms the committee’s approach for calculating the daily recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for vitamin D.  More detailed information on the approach used to establish the RDAs for vitamin D is available here.
