Washington: Women who have sufficient amounts of vitamin D are 32 percent less likely to develop fibroids than those who lack in the vital nutrient, a new study has found.Fibroids, also known as uterine leiomyomata, are noncancerous tumors of the uterus.Fibroids often result in pain and bleeding in premenopausal women, and are the leading cause of hysterectomy in the United States.The study of 1,036 women, aged 35-49, living in the Washington, D.C., area from 1996 to 1999, was led by Donna Baird, Ph.D., a researcher at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), part of National Institutes of Health (NIH).
