Essential reading for most people,
This review is from: The Vitamin D Solution: A 3-Step Strategy to Cure Our Most Common Health Problems (Paperback)I was lucky to have a doctor who tested me for Vitamin D deficiency - and I was (severely deficient I mean) so I bought this book to tell me more and what to do about it.
I think the deficiency was the product of my own carefulness about sun tanning, but I was also a victim of statin medication because the deficiency was highlighted after I spent a summer out of doors gardening and building.
The book has given me a very good idea of why I feel better after having prescription Vitamin D (random aches and pains have disappeared) and how I should get the sun next year.
In case any reader of this review feels I am unfair to statins, 70% of people on statins who complain of muscle pain prove in fact to be Vitamin D deficient.

thats interesting, I suffered terribly with statins and also have had skin cancer so hardly go out in the sun, sounds like im deficient in vit D

My father died of a melanoma so I too was reluctant to bare sufficient skin to make the difference.
Its quite likely that many disorders caused by statins are due to Vit D deficiency - loss of sex drive, cataracts, candida infection, prostate enlargement......
The list goes on and on.
Good luck !
