A new study by the University of Toronto (University of Toronto) showed that people with genetic lactose intolerance vitamin D levels in the blood lower than the average for the population. Employees have found that those people, the gene LCT which had a mutation associated with lactose intolerance, consumed less dairy products. This was to be expected, as the fact that the level of vitamin D in their blood was below this vitamin in large amounts is contained in dairy products, and most people it is not enough just to spend time in the sun and eat what they usually eat to get the vitamin in sufficient quantities. Scientists were surprised by the fact that, knowing about their features, people with lactose intolerance have not tried to compensate for the shortage of the essential vitamin through food or supplements rich in this vitamin food.
The researchers stressed that those who restrict themselves to the use of dairy products, it is necessary to expand the diet or start to use, for example, lactose-free milk. Research work also confirmed the fact that people with lactose intolerance on average have lower growth than those who have milk is absorbed normally as the lack of essential nutrients affects the bone formation. The was attended by about a thousand people.
