    Vitamin D for cancer prevention: global perspective.
    Garland CF, Gorham ED, Mohr SB, Garland FC.
    Ann Epidemiol. 2009 Jul;19(7):468-83. Review.
    PMID: 19523595

    RESULTS/CONCLUSIONS: It is projected that raising the minimum year-around serum 25(OH)D level to 40 to 60 ng/mL (100-150 nmol/L) would prevent approximately 58,000 new cases of breast cancer and 49,000 new cases of colorectal cancer each year, and three fourths of deaths from these diseases in the United States and Canada, based on observational studies combined with a randomized trial. Such intakes also are expected to reduce case-fatality rates of patients who have breast, colorectal, or prostate cancer by half. There are no unreasonable risks from intake of 2000 IU per day of vitamin D(3), or from a population serum 25(OH)D level of 40 to 60 ng/mL. The time has arrived for nationally coordinated action to substantially increase intake of vitamin D and calcium.

    Meta-analysis: longitudinal studies of serum vitamin D and colorectal cancer risk.
    Yin L, Grandi N, Raum E, Haug U, Arndt V, Brenner H.
    Aliment Pharmacol Ther. 2009 Jul 1;30(2):113-25. Epub 2009 Apr 15.
    PMID: 19392870
    DOI: 10.1111/j.1365-2036.2009.04022.x

    Conclusions Our results support suggestions that serum 25(OH)D is inversely related to CRC risk.

Ecological Studies Of Ultraviolet B, Vitamin D And Cancer Since 2000 - 0 views

    Ecological studies of ultraviolet B, vitamin D and cancer since 2000.
    Grant WB, Mohr SB.
    Ann Epidemiol. 2009 Jul;19(7):446-54. Epub 2009 Mar 9.
    PMID: 19269856

    CONCLUSION: These findings provide strong evidence that vitamin D status plays an important role in controlling the outcome of cancer. Support for the UVB-vitamin D-cancer theory is now scientifically strong enough to warrant use of vitamin D in cancer prevention, and as a component of treatment. More research studies would help to explore whether there are benefits beyond the substantial effects that have been observed.

Vitamin D and Cancer Mini-Symposium: The Risk of Additional Vitamin D - 0 views

  •  
    Evidence from clinical trials shows, with a wide margin of confidence, that a prolonged intake of 10,000IU/d of vitamin D3 poses no risk of adverse effects for adults, even if this is added to a rather high physiologic background level of vitamin D.
