Utilizing information from a past report, Dr. Melough and her group inspected relationship between nutrient D levels in the blood of 1,503 ladies in their second trimester of pregnancy and the IQ scores of the youngsters to whom they birthed. The IQ scores were estimated between ages four through six by means of the Stanford-Binet insight test.
As noted, above, more elevated levels of nutrient D were related with higher IQ scores, yet what the specialists additionally found was essentially lower levels of nutrient D in Black ladies and others with hazily pigmented skin.
