Vitamin D influences key functions in the body and deficiency has been implicated in many diseases. Dr. John Cannell of the Vitamin D Council says that Vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy endangers the mother’s life and health, and is linked to many health issues in the child, particularly autism, asthma, and autoimmune disorders.
