Researchers find link between Vitamin D and cancer

Doctors say Vitamin D could play a role in a cancer patient’s survival.

Researchers in China looked at data from several studies that recorded the Vitamin D levels of cancer patients at the time of diagnosis and tracked their survival.

They found patients with high levels of Vitamin D were more likely to survive and remained in remission longer than patients with Vitamin D deficiencies.

The link was especially strong for breast cancer, lymphoma and colorectal cancer.

The body makes Vitamin D after sun exposure but it also is found in leafy green vegetables and fatty fish.
