Low Vitamin D Associated With Higher Risk of Early Death

A recent study suggests that people with low blood levels of vitamin D could be around twice as likely to die an early death when compared with people who had high levels of vitamin D.

Data for this study included eight studies that had a total of 26,018 men and women between the ages of 50 and 79. Over the duration of the studies, 6,695 people died, including 2,624 from cardiovascular disease and 2,227 from cancer.

When the researchers looked closely at the correlation between vitamin D levels and risk of death from cardiovascular disease and cancer, they found that there was an almost double risk of dying for those with low vitamin D levels.

These results were especially pronounced in more mature participants who had a previous history of cancer.

Researchers from Mount Sinai Hospital and a group of other international institutions conducted the study. It was published on June 17, 2014, in BMJ.

Previous studies have associated vitamin D with reducing the risk of skin damage,reducing the risk of osteoporosis, combating diabetes, and improving age related macular degeneration.

Vitamin D can be found in milk, fortified cereals, fish, and eggs. Your body also processes vitamin D from the sun but it becomes harder for our bodies to process it as we age. A high quality vitamin D supplement is always a good option if you feel that you’re not getting enough through diet and sun.
