Fighting cancer with vitamin D

Cancer patients with higher levels of vitamin D have better survival rates and remain in remission longer than patients who are vitamin D-deficient. The body produces vitamin D in the skin with sun exposure – making the sun one of your best friends. Some vitamin D can be had from healthy foods, but again, the sun starts it. Vitamin D in sufficient quantities prevents existing tumor growth by blocking the tumor’s expanding blood supply while promoting cancer cell death, known as apoptosis. The strongest link between vitamin D and cancer survival is in breast cancer, lymphoma and colorectal cancer. But don’t stop there as there is plenty of evidence that the mighty D helps stifle lung cancer, gastric cancer, prostate cancer, leukemia and melanoma. To fight cancer, vitamin D blood levels need to top 50 ng/ml or more IMHO. Has your doctor talked to you about your D levels? Consider finding a real doctor if they haven’t…
