Vitamin D Significantly Lowers Cancer Risk, Researchers Conclude

Researchers at the University of California performed a study that found by naturally stimulating the production of vitamin D in the skin, solar ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation can significantly reduce 16 different types of cancer.

Cedric Garland and William Grant, the study’s authors says “Enhancing vitamin D status appears to be the single most important simple thing people can do to reduce their risk of cancer, apart from avoiding tobacco and moderation in the intake of alcohol.”

The researchers recommend natural sunlight as the best source of vitamin D. With only 10 to 20 percent of their body is exposed, people who are fair-skinned and live in sunny regions of the country can produce about 1,500 IU of vitamin D in 20 minutes of exposure to sunlight at noon. The study says people should try to expose more of their skin surface for a shorter amount of time, as opposed to staying in the sun for longer periods of time with minimal skin exposure.

It may take darker-skinned people up to four times as long to produce the same amount of vitamin D as fair-skinned people. A theory exists among the researchers that this may be the cause of higher cancer rates in African-Americans.

Frank Mangano’s commentary:

What else can be said? Vitamin D is one of the best forms of protection one can equip him or herself against cancer.

Why is it that the media and the FDA say the sun causes cancer when in fact, exposure to natural sunlight does just the opposite? Simple. Natural sunlight is free. It can’t bottled up and sold for a profit. Anything that can’t Big Pharma can’t make money from becomes a danger by default. They make attempts to deter people from using such resources because they feel it’s money lost to them.

Don’t believe the hype! While over-exposure to the sun or anything is not recommended either, natural sunlight produces sufficient vitamin D which has been shown to prevent cancer. Best of all, it can do in just 20 minutes a day.

You can also increase your intake through supplement form and shoot for 1,000 to 1,500 IU per day, as the study warns that the 250 to 300 IU Americans typically get through their diets is not enough to protect against cancer.
