Vitamin D Lowers Cancer Risk

   Cancer researchers urged people on Wednesday to take more vitamin D to lower their risk of colon, breast and ovarian cancer, saying studies showed a clear link.

     Garland's research team reviewed 63 studies, including several large long-term ones, on the relationship between vitamin D and certain types of cancer worldwide between 1966 and 2004.

    Garland is part of a University of California at San Diego Moores Cancer Center team that published its findings this week online in the American Journal of Public Health.

     He said the benefit of vitamin D was as clear as the harmful link between smoking and lung cancer. vitamin D deficiency may account for several thousand premature deaths from colon, breast, ovarian and other cancers annually.

     People might want to consider a vitamin supplement to raise their intake to 1000 IUs per day, Garland said, adding that it was well within the safety guidelines established by the National Academy of Sciences.

    The authors said that taking more vitamin D could be especially important for people living in northern areas, which receive less vitamin D from sunshine.
