Normalising our vitamin D levels with testing and appropriate doses or safe sun exposure if you live in a warm climate, is one of the things we can do to help ourselves either post chemotherapy or when on watch and wait. It's not a magic bullet, but along with a healthy eating plan,fresh air, enough sleep and appropriate exercise we can improve our quality of life and maintain health as long as possible.
Plasma 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentration and subsequent risk of total and site specific cancers in Japanese population
What this study adds
( to current knowledge)
"In this population based prospective cohort study of a Japanese population, higher vitamin D concentration was associated with a reduced risk of overall cancer in both men and women
A decreased risk of liver cancer was also associated with a high vitamin D concentration
The results support the hypothesis that vitamin D might have beneficial effects in cancer prevention"
