Call to Up Level of Vitamin D

Attorney Uriel Lynn, president of the Federation of the Israeli Chambers of Commerce, has asked the Health Ministry to increase the quantity of Vitamin D permitted for consumption. Professionals in the European Union and United States allow a much greater quantity of Vitamin D in food supplements than is allowed in Israel, he argued.

The Health Ministry created a committee to study the matter in early 2011, but the committee has yet to submit its recommendations.
