Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure and a special privilege to welcome you to this Special Issue of Nutrients related to the 5th International Conference “Vitamin D—Minimum, Maximum, Optimum”, under the auspices of the European Vitamin D Association (EVIDAS).

The conference and the forthcoming papers serve as an international forum for the presentation and discussion of current basic and clinical research in the field of vitamin D. Organizing this subsequent Special Issue of Nutrients on vitamin D is a real challenge, given that the vitamin has recently been shown by prestigious medical journals as an epiphenomenon that coincides with diseases and that the correction of vitamin D deficits has limited clinical meaning. On the other hand, it is recognized that vitamin D deficiency is a global health problem with potential negative consequences on health, welfare, and morbidity during growth and adulthood, therefore influencing health care services worldwide. Thus, due to mutually exclusive conclusions, it is essential to discuss vividly, and share scientific reports and evidence demonstrating both the benefits and lack thereof in relation to human health. COVID-19 emerged over the last and current year; therefore, COVID-19 and vitamin D are the major issues that will be presented and discussed in this Special Issue.
