Cut Cancer Risk 50%--With Vitamin D!
The New "In-Vogue" Vitamin
Vitamin D is the new “in vogue” vitamin, coming to the attention of a myriad of researchers, who have discovered its miraculous properties.
The body generates Vitamin D by sunlight. The more sun you get, the more Vitamin D your body produces, but we also know what doctors say about getting too much sun: It’s dangerous when it comes to developing maladies like skin cancer. For that reason, most of us suffer from dangerously low Vitamin D levels.
The Wonders of Vitamin D
Researchers became aware of the problem (low Vitamin D levels) when they discovered that people who lived in the Northern hemispheres developed more cancers than those who lived in Southern hemispheres.
We now know that optimum levels of Vitamin D can cut cancer risk by 50%. Studies in elderly folks found that they fell less and were less frail when their Vitamin D levels were high. Life Extension Foundation found that people in winter developed more infections because of decreased Vitamin D levels caused by a reduction in sunlight. This deficiency impaired the immune system.
