Low Vitamin D3 Increases the Risk of Premature Death from All Causes

Dr. Cedric 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.
