Vitamin D May Show Benefit agaist Breast & Colorectral Cancers

Are you getting enough Sunshine each day or are you in a state that you don't get much Sunshine. This article is something I thought would be of interest to you...

Experts from universities, research institutes and university hospitals around the world assessed evidence from research and concluded that the public health is best served by a recommendation of higher daily intakes of vitamin D. Changes such as increased food fortification or increasing the amount of vitamin D in vitamin supplement products could bring about rapid and important reductions in the morbidity associated with low vitamin D status, according to the experts. A recent review of the science resulted in the recommendation that the tolerable upper intake level for oral vitamin D3 should be increased five-fold, from the current tolerable upper intake level in Europe and the U.S. of 2000 International Units, equivalent to 50 micrograms per day, to 10,000 International Units (250 micrograms per day ). (The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition; March 2007, volume 85, number 3, pages 649-650)



Vitamin D May Show Benefit Against
Breast and Colorectal Cancers

Review and meta-analysis of several studies led researchers from several institutions to determine that an increased daily intake of vitamin D may significantly correlate with reduced incidences of colorectal and breast cancer. The breast cancer study pooled dose-response data from two earlier studies of 1,760 subjects. Subjects with the highest serum concentrations of 25-hydroxyvitamin D, or 25(OH)D (50 nanograms per milliliter), had a fifty percent lower risk of breast cancer compared to those with the lowest blood concentrations; less than or equal to 10 nanograms per milliliter. The colorectal cancer meta-analysis looked at five studies of 1,448 Caucasian subjects. The authors estimate a two-thirds reduction in incidence with serum concentrations of 46 nanograms per milliliter, corresponding to a daily intake of 2,000 IU of vitamin D3. The researchers state the best way to achieve these concentrations is a combination of diet, supplements and 10 to 15 minutes per day in the sun.
