REDUCE CANCER RATES BY SUPPLEMENTING VITAMIN D – (10-29-07)By
Optimal Vitamin D Status for Colorectal Cancer Prevention – A Quantitative Meta Analysis
1,000 to 2,000 IU/day of Vit D could result in a 50% reduction in cancer rates. 50%. One half. With no known side effects to Vit D supplementation at this level, and little risk with rationale sun exposure. Shouldn’t this information be plastered across every piece of marketing material the American Cancer Society puts out? If the benefit is so clear cut, why do I still get push back from people in the community when I suggest 2,000 IU/day? Shouldn’t everyone be aware of this by now?
I can’t begin to explain my frustration with all the focus on “finding a cure” when knowledge about prevention is so incredibly strong. And this is just one approach, which, incidentally, would also be in line with the AHA’s and ADA’s agendas, since they purport to lower the burden of their respective diseases.
