    Breast J. 2008 May-Jun;14(3):255-60. Epub 2008 Apr 17.
    PMID: 18422861
    DOI: 10.1111/j.1524-4741.2008.00571.x

    There was a protective effect of UVB irradiance on risk of breast cancer that was independent of fertility rate, proportion of the population overweight, alcohol intake, animal energy intake, and other covariates.

    Association between plasma 25-hydroxyvitamin D and breast cancer risk.

    In summary, these results add to a growing body of evidence that adequate vitamin D stores may prevent breast cancer development. Whereas circulating 25-OHD levels of >32 ng/mL are associated with normal bone mineral metabolism, our data suggest that the optimal level for breast cancer prevention is ≥40 ng/mL. Well-designed clinical trials are urgently needed to determine whether vitamin D supplementation is effective for breast cancer chemoprevention.

    Calcium and vitamin d supplementation decreases incidence of stress fractures in female navy recruits.
    Lappe J, Cullen D, Haynatzki G, Recker R, Ahlf R, Thompson K.
    J Bone Miner Res. 2008 May;23(5):741-9.
    PMID: 18433305
    doi: 10.1359/jbmr.080102

    Conclusions: Generalizing the findings to the population of 14,416 women who entered basic training at the Great Lakes during the 24 mo of recruitment, calcium and vitamin D supplementation for the entire cohort would have prevented 187 persons from fracturing. Such a decrease in SFx would be associated with a significant decrease in morbidity and financial costs.

    Vitamin D and calcium supplementation reduces cancer risk: results of a randomized trial.
    Lappe JM, Travers-Gustafson D, Davies KM, Recker RR, Heaney RP.
    Am J Clin Nutr. 2007 Jun;85(6):1586-91. Erratum in: Am J Clin Nutr. 2008 Mar;87(3):794.
    PMID: 17556697

    Conclusions: Improving calcium and vitamin D nutritional status substantially reduces all-cancer risk in postmenopausal women.
