Day 76  Vitamin D3 and Cancer part 2

Vitamin D3 and Cancer part 2

Continuing where I left of yesterday with an article written by the late Dr J. Joseph Prendergast. I will never forget the first time I spoke to Dr Joe about my own battle with Cardiovascular disease. He said he was “going to blow some wind into my sails” and he certainly did that. His knowledge of Vitamin D3 and Nitric Oxide Therapy was second to none and I hope there are many more people like me who will try and least continue his legacy by sharing his knowledge and studies as best we can.

This is the second part of what he wrote about D3’s Cancer Preventative Benefits.

Cancer Preventative Benefits Part 2

  • Researchers from the Moore’s Cancer Center at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) estimate that by increasing vitamin D3 levels, particularly in countries north of the equator, 250,000 cases of colorectal cancer and 350,000 cases of breast cancer could be prevented worldwide each year.
  • In the Moore’s Cancer Center study, researchers found the anti-cancer beneficial effect began in the range of 24 to 32 ng/ml of vitamin D concentration in people. However, in the US, people do not typically even come close to these protective levels. The late winter average of vitamin D in the US is only about 15-18 ng/ml.
  • In the Moore’s Cancer Center study, researchers found that in addition to preventing about 600,000 cases of cancer each year that increasing the intake of vitamin D3 could easily prevent diseases that would otherwise claim close to one million lives each year.
  • In 2005, Wei Zhou, a researcher working with Dr. Edward Giovannucci, Professor of Nutrition and Epidemiology at Harvard School of Public Health, reported that evidence suggests vitamin D aids in the survival of lung cancer patients. Other similar studies in Norway and England back this assertion.
  • Also in 2005, another Harvard School of Public Health research fellow, Dr. Ying Zhou, along with Professor David Christiani, found that early-stage lung cancer patients with the highest vitamin D input, lived almost three times longer than patients with the lowest input.
  • Marianne Berwick and her colleagues, at the New Mexico Cancer Institute, found malignant melanoma patients with evidence of continued sun exposure had a 60 percent mortality reduction compared to patients who did not. This implies a robust treatment effect from sunlight, and the subsequent vitamin D production it stimulates.
  • In 2005, in an open trial, Professor Reinhold Vieth and his colleagues found just 2,000 IU of vitamin D per day had a positive effect on PSA levels in men with prostate cancer.
  • Studies have shown that those with lowest levels of vitamin D are four times more likely to die from colon cancer than those with normal levels. Also, women with breast cancer are three times more likely to have low vitamin D levels.
  • According to Dr. Cedric Garland, a vitamin D expert at the Cancer Prevention and Control Center at the University of California, San Diego, “If we could correct worldwide vitamin D deficiency, the first thing we’d see is a reduction by 80 percent in the incidence of type 1 diabetes, 75 percent reduction of all invasive cancers combined, and 25 percent reduction in ovarian cancer.”
  • A paper published in 2002 by Dr William B. Grant stated that 20 percent of breast cancer cases in Europe were a result of vitamin D deficiency.
  • A four-year study conducted at Creighton University School of Medicine in Nebraska revealed that supplementing with vitamin D can reduce your risk of cancer by an astonishing 77 percent. This new research provides strong evidence that vitamin D is by and large the single most effective medicine against cancer—far outpacing the benefits of any cancer drug known to modern medicine or science.
  • Vitamin D has a protective effect against skin cancer in particular. Perhaps this is because vitamin D has also been found to cause your immune system T-cells—the cells that destroy damaged and infected cells—to change shape and migrate to the uppermost layer of your skin.
  • In Canada, patients given vitamin D along with chemotherapy had fewer side effects and developed fewer thromboses (blood clots)

Here is the original video I shared eleven years ago, the views were less than 200 at the time, even now eleven years on the views have still to reach ninety thousand. I wonder why? They only part I disagree with is getting enough Vitamin D3 from the sun and much safer to supplement.
