Scientists: month of birth affects the risk of developing schizophrenia
Academics said that there is another criterion that affects the risk of developing schizophrenia.
According to the scientific work of Australian and Danish experts, the possibility of the disease is affected by the month of birth.
In many studies, researchers at the University of Queensland, together with colleagues from Denmark, found that the risk of schizophrenia is influenced by the amount of vitamin D at the time of the birth of a baby. And if a child has this indicator is low, then he will more often suffer from this disease in adulthood.
During the experiment, scientists found that there is a pattern that is associated with the time of year. More than half of the participants surveyed suffered from schizophrenia. It should be said that all patients were born in spring or winter. This can justify the low content of vitamin D in the body.
