Petition for Health Canada and the IOM to Re-evaluate Vitamin D Guidelines

9,642 Signatures Goal: 10,000

Premature deaths and avoidable health care costs can be avoided by simply taking adequate vitamin D supplementation.


Recent research shows a grave statistical error was made by the Institute of Medicine in the calculation of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for vitamin D. [1]



As a result of this miscalculation, Health Canada’s recommendations for vitamin D intake are too low, and IMMEDIATE ACTION IS REQUIRED to correct this error that is putting ALL Canadians at risk.



Low vitamin D levels have been linked with numerous diseases including:

• cancer (breast, colon and prostate)

• osteoporosis

• diabetes

• depression

• colds and flus

• hypertension and cardiovascular disease

• mortality

• acne


Health professionals base their guidance to patients on RDAs, and therefore it is of paramount importance that the RDA for vitamin D in Canada be accurate. Pure North S’Energy Foundation needs your signature to bring about a critical change in Health Canada’s recommendation.


Not only are the recommendations not adequate but Health Canada limits the amount of vitamin D in supplements to 1,000 IU per tablet and anything above that requires a prescription. In the United States people have access to supplements of 7,000 IU, yet both responsible government agencies utilize the same recommendations. Canadians should be able to purchase vitamin D supplements at the same dose as Americans.


Sign our petition today!


I support policies for the maintenance of optimal health and prevention of disease. The RDA for vitamin D needs to be re-evaluated by the IOM and Health Canada.

    Vitamin D levels need to be in the normal range in a 25 hydroxy D test, so dosage should be dependant on what one needs to obtain these ever so important levels.

    We all need sun for the all important Vitamin D. The spraying of fake clouds, and the overuse of sunblock, and skin cancer propaganda, are causing a health epidemic around the world.
