Competing interests:

I have received two research grants, one from sanofi-aventis, who market cholecalciferol in Australia, and one from DiaSorin in the US, who manufacture an assay for measurement of serum 25(OH)D. In addition, I am speaking at meetings for sanofi-aventis and DiaSorin later this year.
