Chemicals in common household products may decrease vitamin D levels in the bloodstream

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs), found in commonly used household and industrial products, may reduce vitamin D levels in the bloodstream, according to a new study published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

Professor John D. Meeker, MS, ScD, senior author of the study stated,

“More research is needed into why an association exists, but it is possible that EDCs alter the active form of vitamin D in the body through some of the same mechanisms that they use to impact similar reproductive and thyroid hormones”.
