Vitamin D Increases Breast Cancer Survival Rates

According to a new research published in the International Journal of Cancer Research and Treatment, shows that the increased vitamin D serum raises survival chances for patients suffering from breast cancer. The researchers conducted observational studies over the case studies that took place between 1966 and 2010 and checked the linked with Vitamin D serum levels and breast cancer risk. From this collected data 4443 patients were studied and divided into five groups on a scale of 25(OH)D serum levels that ranged between 17 ng/ml or below, to 30 ng/ml or greater. This experiment proved that Vitamin D decreases the risk by 44 percent among the women. Vitamin D is probably the best known for strengthening bone health and also helps to control calcium in the body. With this research it also proved to control breast cancer risk. Cedric Garland, DrPH, of the University of California, San Diego suggests that vitamin D avoids tumor growth by regulating proteins that causes faster cell division.
