In a new study, a group of researchers is has done a study in which they have stated that Vitamin D can be used to reduce the risks of developing the breast cancer in women. They have assessed this across the broad range of vitamin D contents whose concentrations are >40 ng/ml.
Researchers have done the study to know about the relationship between different ranges of Vitamin D concentrations and breast cancer risk. They have gathered the data from the two clinical trials, and it is a prospective cohort which was followed by a total of over 5000 women in about four years. The study on prospective cohort was conducted between the breast cancer in which the women are at risk, and they have a wide range of serum 25(OH) D concentrations.
Researchers have found that the women who got 25(OH)D concentrations are greater than 60 ng/ml and had just one-fifth of the breast cancer risks among the women and they had 20 ng/ml of 25(OH)D. According to Sharon Mcdonnell, who is the main author of the study said that increase in vitamin D levels above the 20 ng/ml could help in preventing the breast cancer. To reach beneficial levels, a person may take about 4,000 to 6,000 international units or IU which consist of dietary supplements every day.
The chances of getting a colon cancer which declines about 19 percent in women and 7 percent in men for every incremental increase in Vitamin D level in blood, as per researchers. According to McCullough, it has appeared that across most of the range we are looking at, it was the relationship which was linear.
Colon Cancer is said to be the one of the most common cancer in the world, and it is third in rank which leads to deaths in men and women in the US. In the year 2018 alone, about 140,250 new cases have been registered, and about 50,630 deaths have occurred till now.
