Vitamin D may lower the risk of heart disease

In this study, doctors measured vitamin D levels in 14,641 adults and followed up for 13 years. Those with the highest circulating levels of vitamin D were less likely to have died from any cause compared to those with the lowest levels. Looking at specific diseases, compared to those with the lowest levels, those with the highest levels of vitamin D were less likely to have cardiovascular disease, a heart attack, and hip fractures. Those with the highest vitamin D levels were also 76 percent less likely to have died from any respiratory disease.
