Excess levels of Vitamin D linked to higher death rates

Excess levels of vitamin D in the blood are linked with higher death rates, warn researchers.
They claim, in a ‘surprising’ finding, that too much of the sunshine vitamin may cause almost as much harm as too little.
A new study from Danish researchers found rates of death were 40 per cent up in people with very high levels of vitamin D.
The study from University of Copenhagen is based on blood samples from 247,574 patients having tests through their GPs. But British experts said the UK had the reverse problem, with one in four people currently having low levels that put them at risk of deficiency.
