Vitamin D Prevents Bone Fractures

More than 90% of people who’ve had a hip fracture are due to a serious vitamin D deficiency, accroding to a research done in Glasgow, Scotland.
Stephen Gallacher, a consultant physician who is head of South Glasgow’s fracture liaison service comment that “Vitamin D seems to play a key role in many systems in the body, not just bones, but diseases like diabetes and certain cancers.”
Vitamin D deficiency was linked to poor bone density and osteoporosis, and could occur in younger patients.
Dr Gallacher believe  that  bone density can increase by 20 per cent in a few months with enough vitamin D by taking a supplement.
