Vitamin D And Cancer


Common vitamin D found in milk, vegetables, and plenty of sunshine just might be an aid in the fight against prostate cancer.

Researchers from Canada, the United States and Europe will be conducting a clinical trial testing Vitamin D along with a chemotherapy drug. The expect the treatment to increase survival time for prostate cancer patients.

Earlier studies show that vitamin D has a possible role in fighting cancer. Death rates from breast, colon, and reproductive organ cancers are lower in areas where people spend more time outside in the sunshine. Vitamin D has been shown to kill some cancer cells in the laboratory.
