Portions of a few tables in the study



Each year, the American Cancer Society estimates the numbers of new cancer cases and deaths in the United States and compiles the most recent data on population- based cancer occurrence and outcomes using incidence data collected by central cancer registries (through 2020) and mortality data collected by the National Center for Health Statistics (through 2021). In 2024, 2,001,140 new cancer cases and 611,720 cancer deaths are projected to occur in the United States. Cancer mortality continued to decline through 2021, averting over 4 million deaths since 1991 because of reductions in smoking, earlier detection for some cancers, and improved treatment options in both the adjuvant and metastatic settings. However, these gains are threatened by increasing incidence for 6 of the top 10 cancers.

Incidence rates increased during 2015-2019 by 0.6%-1% annually for breast, pancreas, and uterine corpus cancers and by 2%-3% annually for prostate, liver (female), kidney, and hu­man papillomavirus-associated oral cancers and for melanoma. Incidence rates also increased by 1%-2% annually for cervical (ages 30-44 years) and colorectal cancers (ages <55 years) in young adults.

Colorectal cancer was the fourth-leading cause of cancer death in both men and women younger than 50 years in the late-1990s but is now first in men and second in women.

Progress is also hampered by wide persistent cancer disparities; compared to White people, mortality rates are two-fold higher for prostate, stomach and uterine corpus cancers in Black people and for liver, stomach, and kidney cancers in Native American people. Continued national progress will require increased investment in cancer prevention and access to equitable treat­ment, especially among American Indian and Alaska Native and Black individuals.

VitaminDWiki – Cancer category contains:

Cancers get less Vitamin D when there is a poor Vitamin D Receptor

VitaminDWiki – Overview Breast Cancer and Vitamin D contains

VitaminDWiki – Cancer - After diagnosis category contains

  • Most cancers reduce vitamin D levels
  • Most cancer treatments (chemo, radiation) further lower Vitamin D
  • Higher levels of vitamin D minimize many side-effects of cancer therapy
  • High levels of vitamin D augment many chemotherapies
  • High levels of vitamin D augment cancer immunotherapies
  • High levels of vitamin D can kill some cancer cells 1,720 items 12/2023
  • Some cancers deactivate the vitamin D receptor

Example VitaminDWiki Studies

Breast Cancer

VitaminDWiki – Cancer - Colon category

VitaminDWiki – Cancer - Pancreatic category:

55 items in Cancer-Pancreatic

Risk of Pancreatic Cancer significantly reduced by each of:
Vitamin D, Vitamin K, Magnesium, Vitamin D Receptor Activators, and Omega-3
Perhaps the combination would reduce PC risk by >90%
   if taken for at least 2, and perhaps 5 years

Pancreatic Cancer trials using Vitamin D and viral therapy – Nov 2018 contains:

Omega-3 helps
