[NH] Study: Pregnant women should get more vitamin D

Pregnant women could — and probably should — consume 10 times more
vitamin D than experts currently recommend, according to a new study.

Current guidelines for daily vitamin D intake during pregnancy range
from 200 international units (IU) per day to 400 IU, the amount found
in most prenatal vitamins. For decades, doctors have worried that too
much vitamin D during pregnancy could cause birth defects, and under
current guidelines anything over 2,000 IU per day is still considered
potentially unsafe for anyone, not just pregnant women.
