Vitamin D is a unique nutrient, since the main source is not diet but rather the action of sunlight on the skin (in both humans and animals).  Vitamin D regulates more than 200 genes; and whilst it has been traditionally known to play a major role in musculoskeletal health, more recent research has shown the importance of vitamin D to other health outcomes, including diabetes & cancer and immune function.  The spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus has attracted a huge interest in vitamin D; and in particular claims on social media and the world-wide web that vitamin D is the ‘magic-bullet’ “cure”.  This lecture will review our current (global) knowledge in Vitamin D and Health; and will address whether it is truly a ‘sunshine superstar’ or whether it is all just ‘media hype’!
