Low Vitamin D3 Increases the Risk of Premature Death from All Causes
F. Garland and associates at the Univ. of California, San Diego, showed that
patients with blood levels of vitamin D of 9 had double the risk of premature
death compared to those whose levels were > 50 nannograms per
milliliter.He noted that there is
little danger in taking vitamin D supplements, as long as levels are kept below
200.Any doctor can measure this with a
simple blood test.
