Scientists have increased focus in recent periods, especially after the outbreak of the new epidemic of the Corona virus, on the side effects associated with the proportions of vitamins in the human body, as each vitamin plays a pivotal role in the organs of the body and is responsible for a specific function that integrates with the rest of the functions necessary to continue our lives normally.

A group of scientists unveil the results of a long-term study that lasted for years that used augmented data from 33 independent studies, as well as data from the UK Biobank, and data from the European Investigation into Cancer, Nutrition and Cardiovascular Disease Study (EPIC-CVD). And connect them all with Nutrition Studies.
According to the study published in the Lancet Diabetes Journal, The Lancet Diabetes & EndocrinologyThe main goal of the Cambridge-led research team was to determine whether a genetic predisposition to elevated levels of a vitamin plays a role in an individual’s overall health.

A strange relationship between a class of “vitamin D” and the death rate

Scientists analyzed the count data of about 386,406 middle-aged people of European descent, and the participants were followed for about 9.5 years, and they had no symptoms of cardiovascular disease and underwent measurements of vitamin levels, including levels of “25 (OH) D” through blood tests. .

The researchers noted that out of the 386,406 respondents, 33,546 people developed coronary heart disease, 18,166 had a stroke, and 27,885 died.

The scientists analyzed the levels of “25 (OH) D”, but they did not find a correlation between high levels of the vitamin and higher rates of coronary heart disease, stroke or death. But scientists have found Correlation between low vitamin levels and high Mortality, where high levels of the vitamin contributed to a 30% reduction in general death rates.

The researchers obtained these results after linking all previous research and studies with 31 Study focused on the effects of “vitamin D” (VitDSC), where scientists performed observational and genetic analysis.

Research findings in genetic evidence suggest a causal relationship between vitamin D levels and mortality in people with low levels of this vitamin.

The researchers said genetic analyzes provided strong evidence of a link Inverse of decreased mortality risk and genetic predisposition to higher levels of “vitamin D”.

It was stated in the study that n“Foxnews” shirt They report: “Mendelian stratified randomization analyzes indicate a causal relationship between 25(OH)D concentrations and mortality in individuals with low vitamin D status.”

Scientists call this class of vitamin D the symbol 25(OH)D, calcifediol, or calcidiol, a form of vitamin D produced in the liver by the hydrolysis of vitamin D3.

It is known that this vitamin plays a major role in helping the body absorb calcium and phosphorous, and the “Chan School of Public Health” of Harvard University indicated in its laboratory studies that this category of “vitamin D” can reduce the growth of cancer cells, and help In controlling infection and reducing inflammation.
