In a review of worldwide vitamin D and major disease studies, researchersVitD estimated that by raising blood levels of vitamin D to 44 nanograms per milliliter of blood (ng/mL) from 20
ng/mL currently, annual worldwide deaths from major diseases would decrease by 20 percent, and increase average life expectancy by two years.

According to study authors, vitamin D lowers chances of-and increases longevity in-the five major disease groups that account for over half the world's mortality rates. These include cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, tuberculosis, and respiratory diseases and infections.

On a personal note…

Karlyn and I utilize a good vitamin program for 50+ folks and supplement with extra vitamin D so we can increase our immune systems. This is very important as we age.
