WRITTEN QUESTION by Jim Higgins (PPE) to the Commission

 Subject: Vitamin D
 Answer(s) 

In view of the fact that 50% of the EU's population is deficient in Vitamin D, and that Vitamin D is not only essential for optimal bone and muscle health, but is also a key preventative factor in warding off diseases such as osteoporosis, heart diseases, many forms of cancer, diabetes, asthma and multiple sclerosis, is the Commission planning to propose any public education programmes in order to highlight the nutritional importance of Vitamin D?
