)-- Vitamin D deficiency can cause a wide variety of medical conditions in children and adults including rickets (bone softening & deformity) in children, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis in adults. It has been linked to breast and prostate cancer as well as auto-immune diseases such as multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel disease.
The increase in Vitamin D deficiency has been attributed to lack of sunlight due to people spending too much time indoors, the use of sunscreen when outside and dietary changes such as substituting soft drinks for milk.
