Historical Evidence Provides New Information About Vitamin D Deficiency

Research led by the University of Otago challenges previous assumptions about the causes of rickets during the Industrial Revolution, suggesting that factors beyond factory work and polluted cities contributed to vitamin D deficiencies. Through the examination of teeth from an English cemetery, researchers found clear evidence of seasonal vitamin D deficiency, indicating its prevalence in industrial-era England. These findings highlight the complex relationship between latitude, seasonal sunlight, and vitamin D production, informing modern approaches to combating vitamin D-related health issues. Teeth provide valuable insights into past populations, offering a precise chronology and unchanging tissue composition, which aids in understanding the impact of vitamin D deficiency historically and its relevance today.
