Research Links Low Levels of Vitamin D to Increased Heart Risks

There is a firm association between low levels of vitamin D and higher rates of ischemic heart disease, MI, and early death, according to the largest epidemiological study to date to examine this issue. Investigators found that “those with the lowest levels of vitamin D had a 40% increased risk of ischemic heart disease, a 64% higher chance of an MI, a 57% increased risk of early death, and an 81% higher likelihood of fatal ischemic heart disease/MI.” The researchers “further confirmed this finding by performing a meta-analysis of all such studies to date, published in their paper in Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis Vascular, Biology.”
