Vitamin D Levels Linked To Uterine Fibroid Risk

Research has found that women who had enough vitamin D cut their risk for uterine fibroids by nearly one third.  Fibroids are tumours that develop in the uterus which are not cancerous, but often cause pain and bleeding in premenopausal women.  Because of discomfort, they are the leading cause of hysterectomies and can contribute to fertility issues.
