Cut Cancer Risk By Up To 67 Percent – With Vitamin D!

Vitamin D cuts cancer risk by up to 67 percent, according to new research from the Institute of Medicine.

Checking your vitamin D status is important. “Ideally, you want to maintain a vitamin D level of 40 to 60 ng/ml year-round,” said Dr. Mercola, a leading health expert and physician. Based on mounting research, 40 ng/ml appears to be the “magic” number at which a whole host of health benefits are reaped.”

Vitamin D deficiency is linked to man conditions, including heart disease, stroke, hypertension, autoimmune conditions, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and so much more.

Add to this list cancers, including cancers of the: breast, colon, ovaries, prostate, esophagus, lymphatic, and melanoma.

Now, the Institute of Medicine is reporting that vitamin D cuts cancer risk by up to 67 percent.

In a study that lasted just over a year involving over 400,000 adults, those who had the least vitamin D had an 88 percent increase in the risk of death from any cause.

Dr. Mercola weighed in about the study:

This is not the first evidence of vitamin D’s cancer benefits, as a previous study published in the journal Anticancer Research showed that a vitamin D level of 50 ng/ml was associated with a 50 percent lower risk of cancer.

Another study from Montreal’s McGill University showed that vitamin D blocked some cancer-causing proteins.

To get your daily dose of vitamin D it is recommended to do the following:

‣ Eat Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon
‣ Take Vitamin D supplements
‣ Get daily exposure to sun (about 10 minutes). Do not forget wearing a sunscreen.

Note: Make sure you get your vitamin D supplements from a reputable source.
