Low Levels of Vitamin D Linked to Prostrate Cancer

Each year more Australian men die from prostate cancer than women die from breast cancer and it affects 1 in 5 Australian men. Prostate cancer is diagnosed in around 20,000 males each year and is the most common cancer in in men.

A Harvard university study recently revealed that men with the lowest levels of Vitamin D are at a greater risk for an aggressive, often deadly form of prostate cancer. Self-treatment with sunshine, supplements, and foods heavy with D may counteract these risk factors, especially among men aged 65 and older.

Other studies from the University at Albany’s Cancer Research Center in New York revealed the enhanced role of Vitamin D3 in fighting prostate cancer.
