Vitamin D is considered to be at the top of the list of all natural remedies for cancer. So here's the amazing study results that prove why the "sunshine vitamin" is still one of the best cancer treatments available...
Thrilling new research findings have confirmed that supplementing with Vitamin D and calcium can actually cut the rate of cancer by a whopping 77%! This includes breast, colon and skin cancer, along with other forms of cancers...
The Creighton University School of Medicine in Nebraska did a study involving 1,179 healthy women. The first group were given 1400 mg of calcium and 1100 IU's of Vitamin D daily for four years. The other group were given a placebo. The first group showed a 60% reduction in cancers compared to the second group (77% of this reduction actually occurred in the last 3 years of the study).
Now, when you consider this study was done with a relatively low dose of Vitamin D - and probably not a high grade form of calcium was used like coral calcium (the best), calcium malate, calcium aspartate or calcium lactate - and it also didn’t take into account any extra Vitamin D these women could have received if they were out in the sun, the results really are astounding. 1
And while you’re at it, you can also add prostate cancer to the list of cancers vitamin D can help treat and protect against!
Findings from recent studies published in the British Journal of Cancer showed that the group of men with the most vitamin D in their bodies had a six fold less fatality rate from prostate cancer than the men with lower levels.
And in a recent review of research involving vitamin D, cancer and sunlight (ultraviolet B or UVB) they found that sun associated vitamin D was linked to lower levels of colon and breast cancers, along with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, kidney and ovarian cancers. 2
Nicola Reavley, in her bestselling book, The New Encyclopedia of Vitamins, Minerals, Supplements and Herbs, says…
“Laboratory experiments show that vitamin D can inhibit the growth of human prostate cancer and breast cancer cells. Lung cancer and pancreatic cancer cells may also be susceptible to the effects of vitamin D. Sunlight also seems to be protective against several types of cancer including ovarian, breast and prostate cancers; and this effect may be mediated by vitamin D levels. Synthetic vitamin D-type compounds are being investigated for their potential as anticancer drugs.”
And just in case you may still have any doubts about the “miracle” cancer treatment that is vitamin D. Here’s respected physician and founder of the Centre for New Medicine in California, Leigh Erin Connealy, M.D. talking about the amazing benefits of the sunshine vitamin…
“During the past decade, a steady stream of news from researchers all over the world is proving that vitamin D helps protect us against such serious health concerns as cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disorders, several types of cancer (including breast, colon and prostate), diabetes, emotional difficulties (such as depression and bipolar disorder), muscle function and gum health.” 3
Stop believing all the negative reports about how the sun is bad for you and gives you skin cancer.
It’s not bad for you at all!
Just don’t go overboard with sun exposure (30-40 minutes a day on the face and hands is enough). You definitely don’t want to burn yourself.
Oh, and don’t use any sunscreens or sun glasses either while you're out there. These terrible inventions actually do you more harm than good. They do do a great job of ruining your eyes and burning the chemicals from the sunblock deep into your skin though!
Even with regular sunshine, you're still going to need to supplement with extra vitamin D3. If you live in a cold climate then you're most definitely going to need a vitamin D supplement.
Acclaimed cancer expert, and one of the worlds leading authorities on vitamin D, Dr Cedric Garland, recommends at least 10,000 IU's of vitamin D be taken by cancer sufferers every day (and contrary to what you may have read, this is a safe dosage). By the way, this is the same guy who came out and said after extensive studies that cancer could be "virtually eradicated" if people raised the amount of vitamin D in their bodies to more normal levels. He's considered "the guru" when it comes to vitamin D and cancer... so he's worth listening to!
Final Note: We also strongly recommend that you take a high potency resveratrol supplement with your vitamin D. Resveratrol enhances the effects and benefits of vitamin D by a huge amount. I's also a good idea to find yourself a good quality natural vitamin D cream and rub it on the tumor twice daily for extra benefit.
