Vitamin D remains to be marker of general health, therefore its association to premature death is reasonable but not a cause.

Dr. Sears Comments:

Gamma tocopherol is a much better anti-oxidant than alpha tocopherol.

Dr. Sears Comments:

Again this is an association, not a causality. Usually low vitamin D indicates that the mother is in general poor health. Therefore it is not unlikely that her off-spring will also be in the same health condition.

Dr. Sears Comments:

Again, this only indicates that low Vitamin D is a marker for poor health in general.
