US

42% of people have a vitamin D deficiency

82.1% of black people

69.2% of Hispanic people.
Higher blood levels = over 33 ng/ml or 82.4 nmol/l
Lower blood levels less than 12 ng/ml or 30 nmol/l
50% lower risk of colorectal cancer
Consuming 1,000 IU (25 mcg) daily would help 50% of people reach a vitamin D blood level of 33 ng/ml (82.4 nmol/l)
Consuming 2,000 IU (50 mcg) daily would help nearly everyone reach a blood level of 33 ng/ml (82.4 nmol/l)
Taking 1,000 IU (25 mcg) of vitamin D daily reduced heart disease risk by 10%
Consuming 1,000–4,000 IU (25–100 mcg) of vitamin D daily should be ideal for most people to reach healthy vitamin D blood levels.
However, don’t consume more than 4,000 IU of vitamin D without your doctor's permission. It exceeds the safe upper limits of intake and is not linked to more health benefits
