Scientists from Boston conducted a surveillance of 253 pregnant women. It turned out that 28% of women, whose bodies did not have enough vitamin D, came through Caesarean section. While surgery took place only in 14% of pregnant women with normal level of this vitamin.

Previous studies showed that low level of vitamin D increases the risk of premature death from cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
