Vitamin D And Rise in #Bowel Cancer and #Diabetes

First I read this story:

Guardian 27.7.11  “STUDY SAYS BOWEL CANCER RATE HAS DOUBLED IN MEN”

The chances of men getting bowel cancer have doubled since the 1970s, says Cancer Research UK.  In 1975  1 in 29 men got bowel cancer, but by 2008 this had risen to 1 in 15. The rate among women has risen from 1 in 26 to 1 in 19. 

Then I read this one:

Daily Express 27.7.11 “HOW SOME EXTRA SUNLIGHT CAN SLASH RISK OF DIABETES”

Millions of people may be at risk of ill-health because of low levels of vitamin D.    Low levels are putting people in danger of developing type-2 diabetes.  Dr. Ken Sikaris from Melbourne, Australia co-authored the study.  Previous research has already shown vitamin D deficiency could be to blame for 600,000 cancer cases worldwide each year.  Vitamin D was also shown to cut the risk of bowel cancer by 40% & breast cancer by 50%.

See the link? Vitamin D protects against cancers, especially bowel and breast, and diabetes. No brainer. Read again my pieces on Vitamin D levels needed.
