Vitamin D linked to low birth rates

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Public Health have linked a lack of Vitamin D to low birth rates.

While most Low birth weights babies are normally fine with the excellent health care available, but it can be dangerous.

Vitamin D is vital for the absorption of Calcium and phosphate, and while it can be part of a diet most Vitamin D is made in the skin where sunlight reacts with fats in the body to produce this vital compound.

The further north you go, the less sunlight there is and people whose genetics come from a more southerly climes are at more risk of lacking vitamin D, as there skin is less effective at making this vitamin.
