    By -

    Low levels of vitamin D in children is associated with subclinical atherosclerosis more than 25 years later into their adulthood, according to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. Researchers are exploring the importance of vitamin D, focusing on what it can do for heart health.

    Researchers such as Dr. Robert Heaney, who I previously interviewed in the above video, have now realized that vitamin D is involved in the biochemical “machinery” of all cells and tissues in your body, which is why it has such a potent impact on health and disease.

    For years, it’s been known that children born to vitamin D-deficient mothers are at increased risk for type 1 diabetes. Vitamin D deficiency in childhood is also associated with more severe asthma and allergies.

    Low Vitamin D May Predict More Severe Stroke

    According to veteran vitamin D researcher Dr. Michael Holick, research has shown that vitamin D deficiency can increase your risk of heart attack by 50 percent. Moreover, if you have a heart attack and you're vitamin D deficient, your risk of dying from that heart attack is upwards of 100 percent!

    Other authors who contributed to the study include: Olli Raitakari, Costan Magnussen, Leena Taittonen, Eero Jokinen, Tomi Laitinen, Britt-Marie Loo, Jukka Marniemi, Matthew Sabin, David Burgner, Antti Jula, Nina Hutri-Kahonen, Mika Kahonen, Vera Mikkila, Jorma Viikari, Katja Pahkala and Atte Voipio.

    Atherosclerosis is a condition in which plaque builds up within the arteries, hampering blood flow to the body. Plaque contains fatty substances and cholesterol mostly but will also include fibrin (a blood-clotting material), calcium and waste products from the cells.
