The interesting thing is that, most physical exams do not seem to cover mandatory Vitamin D level testing. For a organic compound that our body cannot make, this ought to have been the case.

That is changing now. Doctors are ordering Vitamin D profile test as routine and suggesting vitamin D supplement. Interestingly even 30,000 IU, taken one tablet per week, is available over the counter without prescription.
Compare that 400 IU RDA for Vitamin D!

>> Yes I am aware of this. However as the article itself mentions, this is difficult and needs suitable circumstances (midday exposure, which most folks in offices do not get). What I meant is that Body cells cannot make Vitamin D, like they make other protiens/vitmanins, using resources from food intake.
