Vitamin D Doubles Colon Cancer Survival Rates


Higher blood levels of vitamin D may double survival rates of colorectal cancer patients, according to a new study.

People with the highest average levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D had half the chance of dying from cancer than people with the lowest average D levels.  High levels of the vitamin D were associated with an overall mortality level 40 percent lower than people with the lowest average levels.

Knowledge of the link between vitamin D intake and protection from cancer dates from the 1940’s, when Frank Apperly demonstrated a link between latitude and deaths from cancer, and suggested that sunlight gave “a relative cancer immunity”.

To avoid toxic levels of Vitamin D you need to make sure you are getting natural source of Vitamin D3.  For a good source and recommended amounts to take please call.
