Vitamin D and Longevity


 
 

Is this the latest longevity vitamin? – Vitamin D lowers mortality rate.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer in Lyon, France did a meta analysis of vitamin D and mortality. They examined the risk of death from any cause in subjects who participated in randomized trials testing the impact of vitamin D supplementation on any health condition.Low vitamin D status was associated with higher mortality from life threatening conditions including cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes mellitus. These disease accounts for 60% to 70% of total mortality in high-income developed countries.Is this too good to be true? We will keep you updated on any new research for vitamin D. Please don’t make this a drug or we will have to back to sun bathing.Marilyn May B.P.H.E., N.D.
