Scientists and physicians have suggested that poor vitamin D intake can result in increased cardio-vascular mortality. Also total mortality appears to be increased with poor vitamin D status. A research team of the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg (DKFZ) headed by Ben Schöttker was able to demonstrate this association in a meta-analysis of 8 European and US-based cohort studies. In addition, serum 25(OH)D concentration (calcidiol) was shown to constitute a prognostic parameter in patients with a history of cancer.
