Vitamin D may Increase Survival For Breast Cancer Patients

A new report outlines how Vitamin D can be linked to combating breast cancer.

"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that in the United States, around 220,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. In 2013, 230,815 women were diagnosed with breast cancer, and 40,860 died of the disease.

Researchers have previously suggested that vitamin D might be beneficial in treating cancer.

Some studies have suggested that the active metabolite of vitamin D - known as calcitriol - may be anticancerous. Administering calcitriol in mice has been shown to stop the proliferation and growth of cancer cells, reduce tumor blood vessel formation, and stimulate cell death."
