vitamin D is one of the most toxic vitamins when consumed excessively. The RDA for vitamin D is a safe upper level limit. Vitamin D can be dangerous when used to keep any concentrated Vitamin D supplements away from young children. Excess vitamin D raises blood calcium. When you have too much blood calcium and it’s concentrated the kidneys have to work extra hard to excrete it and you can get kidney stones. It’s called hypercalcemia can develop from vitamin D toxicity, but doesn’t develop from a high calcium intake. It can also harm your blood vessels and is dangerous to the major arteries of the heart and lungs where it can cause death. Be very careful when taking Vitamin D supplements. You’re better off drinking two glasses of milk everyday. If you live below 40 degrees latitude it should be easier for you to get enough vitamin D especially if you’re fair-skinned with about 5 to 10 minutes of exposed sunlight on the arms upper body and face. It’s harder to absorb vitamin D for dark complected people. Up to six times longer for dark skin.
