Vitamin D linked to healthy arteries?

Posted on: July 21, 2012   by  John Cannell, MD


As you know, Blacks die about seven years younger than Whites, mainly due to cardiovascular disease. In fact, if so many African Americans did not die in their 50s and early 60s from heart attacks and strokes, social security would be in more trouble than it is. As it is, some of these men and women pay into social security but don’t live long enough to collect it.

    No: Blacks die about 5 years sooner than whites, AND most of the reasons are associated with vitamin D deficiency, BUT cardiovascular accounts for about 1/4 of the reasons:
    Heart Disease 1.3 years, HIV 0.6 years, Perinatal death 0.5 years, Stroke 0.4 years, Lung cancer 0.3 years, Other cancer 0.3 years, Diabetes 0.3 years, Prostate cancer 0.3 years, Septicemia 0.2 years, Hypertension 0.2 years, Nephritis 0.2 years, Homicide 1.0 years (depression?) , Unintentional injuries 0.4 years (drugs, autos, falls) , Perinatal death 0.5 years, Homicide 1.0 years (some of which is due to depression)
