2013 Trudeau fellow Timothy Caulfield, a professor in the Faculty of Law and the School of Public Health at the University of Alberta, cosigns an article published in the British Medical Journal in which he reveals that "Newspaper articles conveyed overall support for vitamin D supplementation. News articles linked vitamin D to a wide range of health conditions for which there is no conclusive scientific evidence. Media coverage downplayed the limitations of existing science and overlooked any potential risks associated with supplementation."
