Dr. Tadeusz Malinski, the Marvin & Ann Dilley White Chair and Distinguished Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Ohio University, was quoted in a sidebar to a Daily News story on the relationship between handshakes and heart health.

This comes after research released last January suggested vitamin D is an ‘inexpensive solution’ to drugs as the sunshine supplement repairs and prevents damage to the heart caused by diabetes and high blood pressure.

Vitamin D stimulates the production of nitric acid, which is involved in regulating blood flow and preventing the formation of blood clots, according to the first study of its kind.

It also reduces ‘internal stress’ in the cardiovascular system, which could avoid heart-related incidents, the research adds.

Study author Dr. Tadeusz Malinski from Ohio University, said: ‘There are not many, if any, known systems which can be used to restore cardiovascular cells which are already damaged, and vitamin D can do it.

‘This is a very inexpensive solution to repair the cardiovascular system.

‘We don’t have to develop a new drug. We already have it.’
