Jiang et al. report the results of a Mandelian randomization study of the causal connection between serum Vitamin D levels and prostate cancer. They identified 6 genetic mutations associated with low serum levels and looked for them in 79,148 men who were diagnosed with prostate cancer. They found no greater incidence of those genetic mutations in men with prostate cancer or advanced prostate cancer. Nor was there any association in women with breast cancer. The incidence of the genetic mutations were also not statistically different in 73,699 people who did not have breast or prostate cancer. This proves (once again) that there is no causal connection between low Vitamin D and prostate cancer.
Yet another major study proves no cau... - Advanced Prostate...
