Did Mozart die of a young age due to a severe deficiency in Vitamin D? William Grant, a retired NASA atmospheric physicist who has been

Now, two researchers offer a new theory: vitamin D deficiency. In his
high-latitude home in Austria, Mozart was probably running low on the
sunshine vitamin for half the year. That deficiency may have put the
musician at risk for many of the illnesses he suffered from.
If only Mozart had known about vitamin D and had access to
supplements, he could have doubled his lifetime's output of work, mused
William Grant, a retired NASA atmospheric physicist who has been
following vitamin D research with great interest for the past decade.
And, he argued, the same goes for several other famous musicians who
died at young ages.
