Vitamania: Vitamin D and Mortality, Vitamin C and Smoking in Pregnancy
This week: Vitamin D Levels and All-Cause Mortality, Vitamin C and Infant Lung Outcomes in Pregnant Smokers
Reena and Amol want you to:
1. Recognize the potential association between Vitamin D levels and overall mortality.
2. Recognize that Vitamin C supplementation in pregnant women who smoke can improve infant lung outcomes (though it has not been shown to improve other outcomes). Smoking cessation is still the best option in pregnancy.
