Vitamin D Deficiency and Cancer

FACT: Cancer patients are very likely to have Vitamin D Deficiency.
FACT: Vitamin D is involved in regulating cell growth.
FACT: Vitamin D Levels are not included in routine blood screens.

If Vitamin D facilitates regulation of cell growth, I'm guessing that it would play a role in reducing the overgrowth of cells associated with cancers.

If Vitamin D Deficiency can have an effect on bone formation, muscle strength and the immune system, then I think it's important for all of us to make sure we have adequate vitamin D levels and even more important for those with illness such as cancer.

Both of my grandmothers and one of my parents have had cancer. I would be next if genetic statistics bear out. With all I have read, learned, seen and experienced for myself, I believe Vitamin D3 is going to be my best chance.

So many people I have talked with have never even seen a printout of their own blood test results. These are your results. Ask to see them or better yet, ask for a copy. It is very interesting to compare successive results and see how the increased Vitamin D level compares to changes in other blood levels like cholesterol.
