Headlines can be misleading

I have been reading about a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). In the study, they gave older women a 500,000IU oral dose of vitamin D3(cholecalciferol) once a year for 5 years. They concluded that it had no benefit. This only seems to prove that we need to get vitamin D daily. A once a year mega dose won't help. Some of the related headlines about this study are misleading so anyone researching the many articles on vitamin D should read the whole story and not just the headlines such as "Study: Megadoses of Vitamin D offer no benefit" when the truth is that ONCE A YEAR Megadoses offer no benefit.
