    Vitamin D and prevention of breast cancer: pooled analysis.
    Garland CF, Gorham ED, Mohr SB, Grant WB, Giovannucci EL, Lipkin M, Newmark H, Holick MF, Garland FC.
    J Steroid Biochem Mol Biol. 2007 Mar;103(3-5):708-11.
    PMID: 17368188

    CONCLUSIONS: Intake of 2000 IU/day of Vitamin D(3), and, when possible, very moderate exposure to sunlight, could raise serum 25(OH)D to 52 ng/ml, a level associated with reduction by 50% in incidence of breast cancer, according to observational studies.

    Explaining multiple sclerosis prevalence by ultraviolet exposure: a geospatial analysis.
    Beretich B, Beretich T.
    Mult Scler. 2009 Aug;15(8):891-8.
    PMID: 19667017
    DOI: 10.1177/1352458509105579

    Conclusion

    This analysis suggests a strong association between UV radiation and MS distribution, and an increase in risk for MS in those areas with a low UVI.

The Association of Solar Ultraviolet B (UVB) with Reducing Risk of Cancer: Multifactori... - 0 views

    The association of solar ultraviolet B (UVB) with reducing risk of cancer: multifactorial ecologic analysis of geographic variation in age-adjusted cancer mortality rates.
    Grant WB, Garland CF.
    Anticancer Res. 2006 Jul-Aug;26(4A):2687-99.
    PMID: 16886679

    CONCLUSION: These results provide additional support for the hypothesis that solar UVB, through photosynthesis of vitamin D, is inversely-associated with cancer mortality rates, and that various other cancer risk-modifying factors do not detract from this link. It is thought that sun avoidance practices after 1980, along with improved cancer treatment, led to reduced associations in the latter period. The results regarding solar UVB should be studied further with additional observational and intervention studies of vitamin D indices and cancer incidence, mortality and survival rates.
