Epilepsy: Half of all victims are deficient in vitamin D
About the author: 

Almost every week a new piece of research finds out something else about the importance of vitamin D to our health

Almost every week a new piece of research finds out something else about the importance of vitamin D to our health. Now researchers have discovered that nearly half of all epileptics are deficient in the vitamin, which also increases their risk of osteoporosis, auto-immune disease, cancer, and heart disease.

Around one-third of the general population is vitamin D deficient, but researchers fear the problem is worsened in epileptics by the anti-epileptic drugs they are given. The lifestyle of epileptics could also make their deficiency worse as they may go outdoors less frequently.
