Dr. Sorenson shares the risks associated with vitamin D deficiency.
Dr. Sorenson, Ed.D.:
Well, for instance, we know the women who get the most sunlight and thereby have the highest vitamin D levels have a 65 percent reduced risk of breast cancer. So breast cancer is certainly a major problem with vitamin D deficiency. Other things are women who are vitamin D deficient tend to bear autistic children as we believe now that the primary cause of autism in children is the vitamin D deficiency. We had been scared out of the sunlight, totally frightened away from tanning beds, and we don’t take enough vitamin D supplementation to make up for it.
Ovarian cancer is another. Low vitamin D levels correlate very closely to ovarian cancer rates, and the higher we get the vitamin D levels, the lower the rate is in ovarian cancer. There are many others. Osteoporosis, we actually know there are elderly women now who have severe osteoporosis can to a great extent, reverse that osteoporosis and cut the risk of having a fracture by about 84 percent. So those are some of the major concerns that women have by having vitamin D deficiencies.
