This Vitamin Can Stop Cancer Cell Growth and We Need It Much More Than Doctors Think
Facts say that every single day the number of cancer patients is growing, and modern medicine still hasn’t found, or confirmed a cure for this deadly disease.
Namely, only in 2016, more than 1.5 million new patients have been diagnosed with cancer in the US, and in curing it we are still hopeless. On the other hand, it seems that newest studies can modify our theories about its cause.
To be precise, newest statistical data suggests that almost 75% adults and 70% children in the U.S. have a lack of vitamin D, which is an enormously disturbing fact.
Vitamin D prevents the appearance of almost all diseases, including heart disease, diabetes and cancer. To be specific, our entire health is influenced by the sufficient amounts of vitamin D in our body.
In his study, Dr. Cedric Garlan, found that the insufficiency of this vitamin is directly related to certain cancer types, in most cases, breast cancer. Furthermore, this scientist believes that the risk of this type of cancer can be reduced by half in the case of sufficient quantities of vitamin D in the organism.
Several other researches have also indicated that the deficiency of this vitamin in the body can lead to cancer. Another research conducted in 2007 by Robert Heaney and Joan Lappe involved a group of menopausal women who were taking vitamin D supplements in order to increase their levels to 40mg/ml. The results were shocking: in 4 years, the risk of developing all kinds of cancer was reduced by 77%.
Therefore, to be more exact, even though this research has not provided enough proof that this vitamin can prevent or cure cancer, it clearly indicates that these two are directly related.
The reason for this is the fact that many functions in our body are influenced by this important vitamin. Vitamin D largely influences the function of the cardiovascular and autoimmune system, the body’s absorption of calcium and the healthy bone growth.
However, the issue that arises concerning the relation between cancer and vitamin D is that in most cases, people do not know that they have vitamin D deficiency. A blood test can precisely show the levels of vitamin D in the body, but in this case, you can also read the symptoms that your body sends.
When your body has deficient amounts of vitamin D, you will experience:
- Muscle weakness
- Painful bones
- Cognitive impairment, predominantly in older adults
- Chronic pain
- Severe asthma, especially in children
- Excessive sweating – Excessive sweating is a sign of reduced vitamin D levels, if it is not a result of a physical activity or high body temperature.
- Depression – According to a research, vitamin D deficiency raises the risk of depression for 11 times. This is due to the reduced release of serotonin, or ‘the hormone of happiness’, which influences our mood.
Regarding the latest discoveries by studies who examined the connection between the vitamin D and proper body function, the daily allowance of this vitamin has been changed. Namely, the needed daily amount of this vitamin in people from 1-70 years is 600 IU, and 1,000 IU in the case of infants.
It is extremely important the intake of the needed doses of vitamin D, primarily for your healthy bones, muscles, and so as to prevent cancer.
Therefore, you need to consume foods rich in it, including tuna, fatty fish, mushrooms, milk, yogurt, orange juice. Moreover, you need to spend more time in the sun, because the sun exposure is extremely beneficial in the case of vitamin D deficiency.
Furthermore, you can also take it in the form of oral supplement, as vitamin D3. Note that in that way, you need to take them for several months, because they will need some time to increase the level of vitamin D in the body.
