Shhh … don’t tell anyone. The FDA’s scandalous RDA for vitamin D is a major profit generator for the medical-industrial complex which especially affects dark skinned child bearing women. Covert eugenics going on here.
… In a recent study, researchers aimed to determine the relationship between vitamin D levels and preterm birth at an urban medical center treating a large, diverse population. The researchers analyzed data from 1,064 women. Preterm births occurred in 13% of the women. The data revealed that women with vitamin D levels of 40 ng/ml or higher had a 62% lower risk of preterm birth compared to women with vitamin D levels below 20 ng/ml (p < 0.0001). After adjusting for socioeconomic variables, this relationship remained, with levels of 40 ng/ml or higher associated with a 59% reduced risk of preterm birth.
The researchers also wanted to know whether vitamin D may only play a role in a specific type of preterm birth. Preterm births are commonly divided into two categories, spontaneous and indicated. About a quarter of preterm births are indicated, meaning that the medical team decided to induce labor early, often due to eclampsia or other serious medical conditions. The rest of preterm births are known as spontaneous preterm births, which happens when one goes into labor prematurely or her cervix opens prematurely. The study found that vitamin D levels of 40 ng/ml or higher were associated with similar reductions of spontaneous and indicated preterm births, with 58% and 68% reduced risk, respectively (p = 0.02, 0.06)….
