Table 2 Mean food and vitamin D3 consumption in mice. Lean and obese mice were given ad libitum access to chow containing varying amounts of vitamin D3 and food was weighed weekly to determine mean (± standard deviation) consumption

From: A mouse model of vitamin D insufficiency: is there a relationship between 25(OH) vitamin D levels and obesity?
