We are excited to announce the first episode of our new podcast.
The Vitamin D Council Podcast is meant to be an ongoing discussion for all things vitamin D. Each episode will be centered on a particular topic pertaining to vitamin D. We will base each topic on a specific study or issue that is gaining a lot of attention at the time.
In these podcasts, we will be interviewing prominent vitamin D researchers, discussing important new research, and covering the latest news regarding vitamin D. The podcast will also be a means to update our listeners on new developments within the Vitamin D Council.
In this first episode, Dr. Cannell sits down with Dr. Pelle Lindqvist to discuss his recent research on the association between sun exposure and all-cause mortality. They talk about why Dr. Lindqvist conducted the study, the surprising results he found, and the unpublished data he plans to release in a future study.
Dr. William Grant, Vitamin D Council board member, joins Dr. Cannell to discuss the recent Surgeon General Call to Action to Prevent Skin Cancer report that advised against sun exposure. Dr. Grant explains why the report is flawed and evaluates the evidence to assess the risks and benefits of sun exposure.
The Vitamin D Council and Dr. Cannell also provide their own feedback on Dr. Lindqvist’s study and the Surgeon General report.
