Anses advises against including vitamin D3 in the list of endocrine disruptors to be mentioned on food product label

Vitamin D3, or cholecalciferol, is essential for the proper functioning of our body and plays a decisive role in the quality of bone tissue. It is provided by food (dairy products, fish, eggs) and is produced by skin exposed to the sun. However, more than 1 in 3 French people fail to meet their physiological vitamin D3 needs, which is a major public health concern. Indeed, a vitamin D3 deficiency exposes people to known risks for human health, in particular during periods of growth. Pediatric societies recommend routine vitamin D supplementation for children to prevent rickets and for the elderly to avoid osteoporosis.
