Overview Cancer and vitamin D

Scores of studies show that Vitamin D prevents many cancers and treats a few cancers

  • Prevention results from 2,000 to 5,000 IU of vitamin D
    Prevention really depends on the level of vitamin D in the blood, and some vitamin D deficient groups need much more
  • Treatment needs > 8,000 IU of vitamin D
    But must be careful, as vitamin D makes some Chemotherapy more potent

A high percentage of all cancer deaths are prevented by a high enough level of vitamin D in your bloodstream

CLICK HERE for Original study by Lappe - 2007
41 minutes good video of Lappe explaining the trial
in which she mentions the next 5 year trial underway with 2,000 IU of vitamin D
Breast Cancer details from the study
For years 2-4
Placebo: 8 Breast Cancers out of 266 women
1100 IU vitamin D + Calcium 4 Breast Cancers out of 403 women
That is 8/266 ==> 4/403 with vitamin D
So roughly 3% ==> 1% with 1100 IU of vitamin D
about a 3X reduction for Breast Cancer(vs 4X reduction for all Cancers)

Colon Cancer Chart: > 40ng is good

BISCHOFF April-2010  PDF

VitaminDSurvivor Blog Aug 2011

He is thinking ahead a few years to the large decrease in Cancer when many people have vitamin D levels > 40 ng/ml.
"If the numbers follow the studies about vitamin D and cancer, then as the population gets an average serum level above 40 ng/ml,
  we can expect the cancer incidence to drop by greater than seventy % from all causes.
Seven out of ten people that you know have cancer would not have had that result.
What happens to the medical economy if that occurs?
After all, it is not only cancer that vitamin D3 impacts, it is heart disease and diabetes as well, the other two large killers.
I am sure this scares the leaders at NCI, HHS, and the medical industry as if they were facing a mountain base-jump with no parachute."
