'Everyone is looking for ways to prevent cancer, making little changes here and there according to what the latest studies say. Simple acts like cutting out processed meat, getting more exercise, and switching to organic could well add up to provide significant protection over time, but what if you already have cancer and you’d like to increase your chances of surviving it? There is one step you can take that can single-handedly raise your survival odds by 52 percent: increasing your intake of vitamin D.
An analysis published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism highlights the life-saving potential of this nutrient. After looking at 25 past studies that involved more than 17,000 cancer patients, the researchers determined that people with cancers like breast cancer, colorectal cancer, and lymphoma had significantly lower mortality rates when they had optimal serum levels of vitamin D when compared to those whose levels were lower.
When they compared the people who were in the lowest 25 percent of vitamin D levels against those of people in the highest quartile, they found incredible decreases in the risk of dying from different types of cancer. Specifically, those in the highest quartile had a 52 percent lower risk of dying from lymphoma, a 45 percent lower risk of dying from colorectal cancer, and a 37 percent lower risk of succumbing to breast cancer. It’s entirely possible that vitamin D could help boost survival rates of other types of cancer, too, but more studies are needed to look into them.
In the meta-analysis, researchers found that every 4 ng/mL increase in a person’s levels of vitamin D equated to a 4 percent decrease in death rate.'
