Vitamin D is finally getting some of the recognition it deserves, as today Dr. Cedric Garland, one of the world’s leading authorities and researchers on Vitamin D, stated that breast cancer could be virtually eliminated simply by raising Vitamin D levels during a Vitamin D deficiency conference held in Toronto.
“Breast cancer is a disease so directly related to vitamin D deficiency that a woman’s risk of contracting the disease can be ‘virtually eradicated’ by elevating her vitamin D status to what vitamin D scientists consider to be natural blood levels,” was the message delivered in the conference.
This announcement shouldn’t come as a surprise, as we had previously posted on our blog the association between high levels of vitamin D and a reduced risk of colon cancer. Vitamin D is one of the most important nutrients inside the body, and the majority of people are deficient in Vitamin D, especially during the winter months. Vitamin D deficiency has already been linked to chronic musculoskeletal pain, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, autoimmunity, heart disease, cancers, diabetes, and depression.1,2
According to University of Calgary research, up to 97% of Canadians are deficient in Vitamin D at some point during the year. The percentage of Americans deficient in Vitamin D depends on the location one lives in and how much daily sunlight he or she gets, but most likely during the winter months the majority of the population is deficient in Vitamin D. This figure outlines the importance of getting more sunlight to increase Vitamin D levels or taking a Vitamin D supplement.
