VITAMIN D
Vitamin-D is not only beneficial, itís necessary. The greatest source of Vitamin-D is sunlight.
New research has shown that vitamin D deficiency is an epidemic among American adults today, suggesting that up to 90% of North Americans are vitamin D deficient. This epidemic is most likely caused by over-usage of sunscreen in climates and during seasons when sunburn is not a possibility. This is especially significant because:
  • A 2006 systematic review of 63 studies on vitamin D status in relation to cancer risk has shown that vitamin D sufficiency can reduce oneís risk of colon, breast and ovarian cancers by up to 50%. The landmark paper, published in the February 2006 issue of The American Journal of Public Health, is the most comprehensive paper on vitamin D written to date.
  • Additionally, vitamin D deficiency is a leading cause of osteoporosis, a disease affecting 25 million Americans which leads to 1 million hip and bone fractures every year. In elderly individuals, such fractures are often deadly. Encouraging everyone to wear sunscreen all year long in any climate is undoubtedly contributing to this problem, as vitamin D is necessary for the body to properly process calcium.
  • For years, environmental correlations have established that people in sunny climates have lower risks of many forms of cancer. In recent years, the mechanism by which Vitamin D slows or retards the growth of tumor cells has been researched and identified. It was once thought that only the kidneys could produce active vitamin D, but we now know that many cells in the body perform this function, including cells in the breast, prostate, colon, brain and skin. Research has shown that the active form of vitamin D, when present in cells throughout the body, inhibits the growth and spread of abnormal cells, including cancer cells.
