In comparison to the body's own formation of vitamin D, dietary consumption generally makes up only a relatively small proportion of the vitamin D supply to the body. While an overdose resulting from the body's own production is not possible, it certainly can result from the consumption of highdoses of vitamin D - such as via certain food supplements.

"Safe" PFAS Intake Values Put Forward

News

The EFSA has derived a tolerable weekly intake of four PFAS, namely PFOA, PFOS, perfluorohexane sulfonic acid (PFHxS) and perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA) of 4.4 nanograms (ng) per kilogram (kg) of body weight per week. This value indicates the amount of a substance that can be ingested weekly over a lifetime with no appreciable health risk.

Breakthrough Shows Neuropilin-1 Drives SARS-CoV-2 Infectivity

News

In a major breakthrough scientists have potentially identified what makes SARS-CoV-2 highly infectious and able to spread rapidly in human cells. The findings describe how the virus’s ability to infect human cells can be reduced by inhibitors that block a newly discovered interaction between virus and host, demonstrating a potential anti-viral treatment.
