小编摘要:音乐神童莫扎特少年就成名,但35岁就英年早逝了。一项最新研究声称,找到了莫扎特早逝的罪魁祸首,那就是太阳晒得太少,缺乏维生素D。

导读:1791年12月,奥地利“音乐神童”莫扎特英年早逝,死后三天即入土,未做解剖,死因就此成谜。如今有科学家宣称,太阳晒得不够多以致缺乏维生素D,是莫扎特健康欠佳的根本原因。莫扎特生前饱受疾病之苦,曾患肾病、天花、伤寒、扁桃腺炎及咽喉炎,美国太空总署退休科学家葛兰特近日称,缺乏维生素D是他健康走下坡及英年早逝的主因。据英国媒体称,莫扎特每天日夜颠倒,埋头写曲,又住在全欧洲日照最少的国家奥地利,让他失去了许多晒太阳的机会,因而缺乏足够的维生素D来维持健康,35岁就因病去世。



If only Mozart had spent a little more time outdoors enjoying the sunshine – because then we might have had a few more masterpieces.

Scientists discovered the composer, who died at just 35, did not get enough sunlight. 

He lived in Austria, which was darker than most of Europe, and would work through the night and sleep during the day. 

This prevented his body from producing sufficient levels of vitamin D.

Mozart suffered illness throughout his life, including kidney disease, smallpox, typhoid fever, tonsillitis and strep throat.

Retired Nasa scientist Dr William Grant, believes that vitamin D deficiency was the underlying cause of his  poor health and early death. 

Dr Grant said: ‘Almost every disease has a vitamin D connection. If only Mozart had known about vitamin D and had access to supplements, he could have doubled his lifetime’s output of work.’

The ‘sunshine vitamin’ is essential for bone health and is produced when the skin is exposed to the ultraviolet B sunrays.

Vitamin D deficiency is linked to many medical conditions, and increases the risk of developing influenza, pneumonia, certain cancers, cardiovascular disease and musculoskeletal pain.

'The same goes for several other famous musicians who died at young ages.

'I think modern-day musicians are unaware of the fact that by staying indoors, they are not getting the adequate amount of vitamin D that they need.'

The study 'Medical Problems of Performing Artists' also suggests two other famous musicians died from lack of sunlight.

British cellist Jacqueline Mary du Pre died in 1987 aged 42 from multiple sclerosis, a disease linked to vitamin D deficiency.

Austrian composer Gustav Mahler died in 1911 from bacterial endocarditis, which is also caused by a lack of vitamin D.

Many have speculated over Mozart’s death. He was buried just three days after he died in 1791, and no autopsy was ever performed.
