VITAMIN D UPDATE: Study suggests vitamin D may prevent prostate tumor growth. “New evidence suggests spending more time in the sun could make things brighter for men with prostate cancer. Researchers have found that vitamin D can help block a protein that causes prostate cancer tumors to grow. . . . A University of Colorado Cancer Center study recently published in the journal Prostate presents new evidence that vitamin D may help reduce cancer-causing inflammation. Scientists found that the gene GDF-15 – known to be up-regulated by vitamin D – can help block a protein which stimulates tumor growth. . . . Low vitamin D levels can pose certain health risks including cancer, increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease and cognitive impairment in older adults.”

How many people have died unnecessarily because of bad medical advice about keeping out of the sun?
