    Are sunlight deprivation and influenza epidemics associated with the onset of acute leukemia?
    Timonen T, Näyhä S, Koskela T, Pukkala E.
    Haematologica. 2007 Nov;92(11):1553-6.
    PMID: 18024404
    doi:10.3324/haematol.10799

    Month of diagnosis of 7,423 cases of acute leukemia (AL) in Finland during 1964-2003 were linked with data on influenza and solar radiation. Acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) showed the highest risk in the dark season. During the light season, the incidence decreased by 58% (95% confidence interval, 16-79%) per 1,000 kJ/m2/d increase of solar radiation. Independent of solar radiation, AML increased by 9% (95% confidence interval, 0-19%) during influenza epidemics. Reoccurring at the same time annually, darkness-related vitamin D deficiency and influenza could cause successive and co-operative mutations leading to AL with a short latency.

    Vitamin D status and the risk of lung cancer: a cohort study in Finland.
    Kilkkinen A, Knekt P, Heliövaara M, Rissanen H, Marniemi J, Hakulinen T, Aromaa A.
    Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev. 2008 Nov;17(11):3274-8.
    PMID: 18990771v

    In conclusion, although there was no overall association between vitamin D and lung cancer risk, women and young participants with a higher level of vitamin D were observed to have a lower lung cancer risk. Although experimental data support the suppressing effect of vitamin D on the development of lung cancer, large epidemiologic studies from different populations with repeated measurements of vitamin D are warranted to confirm this finding.
