Researchers in Denmark have found that infants suffering from a vitamin D deficiency are at a much greater risk of developing schizophrenia. UPI reports that the study looked at vitamin D levels in blood samples from 2,602 newborns collected between 1981 and 2000 who were later diagnosed with schizophrenia and found that babies with lower levels had a 44 percent higher risk of developing the condition. Researchers agree that people who suffer from schizophrenia have many different risk factors, both genetic and environmental, but multiple studies are now also pointing to a vitamin D deficiency as a primary cause.
