In a study of 10,000 men and women over a 29 year period, researchers from the Copenhagen University Hospital in Denmark concluded:
"We observed that low levels of vitamin D compared to optimal levels are linked to 40% higher risk of ischemic heart disease, 64% higher risk of heart attack, 57% higher risk of early death, and to no less than 81% higher risk of death from heart disease."
These findings provide startling new hope for anyone suffering from heart problems, or who has a history of heart disease in their family.
But, these findings, published in the prestigious journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology aren't just an isolated example...
There are literally dozens and dozens of recently published studies from Harvard, Oxford University and many other renowned research establishments which all confirm just how crucial vitamin D is in warding off chronic diseases such as diabetes, dementia, osteoporosis...
In an unprecedented move, the Canadian Cancer Society now endorses vitamin D after one landmark study showed that you can decrease your risk of getting cancer by MORE THAN HALF simply by INCREASING your vitamin D levels (Am J Clin Nutr. 2007 Jun;85(6):1586-91).
And yet, the shocking truth is that 9 in 10 of us have such low levels of vitamin D that we're leaving ourselves wide open to these life-threatening diseases.
