Vitamin D - More Undeniable Evidence of its Importance in Preventing Cancer
Posted May 22 2009 11:54pm
Mike Adams, Editor at NaturalNews has put together a wonderful complication of research about Vitamin D and cancer ... especially breast cancer ... please read his article using the link at the end of this post.
A study comparing the health habits of 133 breast cancer patients with women who did not have the disease found that exposure to sunlight lowered the risk of breast cancer by 30 to 40% or more.
...when the same researchers looked at actual vitamin D levels, they found a 43 percent reduction in risk of breast cancer among women younger than 60 when comparing the highest levels of vitamin D (greater than 40) to lowest (less than 20). These findings are consistent with findings that cite a lower risk of breast cancer with increased ultraviolet light exposure, which means higher vitamin D levels are protective. Furthermore, researchers find higher activated vitamin D levels in women with less invasive and/or less advanced breast cancer.
