Are vitamin D supplements worth taking?

Vitamin D Supplements have no health benefits for most people according to recent research.
The headlines of an article from the Sydney Morning Herald dated Jan 24, 2022 caught my eye.

I read about a study that had been running since 2014 to determine what benefits are gained from regular vitamin D supplementation.

In the research from the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute it was found there was NONE!

Firstly let me set a few things straight.

If we look up Vitamin D in Wikipedia it says “it is a group of fat-soluble secosteroids (hormones) responsible for increasing intestinal absorption of calcium, magnesium and phosphate and many other biological effects.”

These substances are produced when we expose our skin to sunshine.
Ten minutes of sunshine to the skin of the upper torso before 10.00 am or after 4 pm
will produce adequate of these hormone-like substances.

Vitamin D supplements are included in a specific drug class according to Wikipedia.

A synthetic mimic of one of at least twenty different fat-soluble hormone substances that our bodies need.

My thoughts on this subject are if there are twenty or more different “vitamin Ds” wouldn’t our body need all twenty?
