Vitamin D lowers blood cancer risk

Vitamin D lowers blood cancer risk image

High vitamin D levels protect against Covid-19—and they also lower the risk of some cancers and make others less malign.

The 'sunshine vitamin' plays a key part in preventing colon cancer and blood cancers, including leukaemia and lymphoma, and can also slow the progress of breast and prostate cancers.

As Covid-19 researchers have been discovering, the vitamin is vital for regulating a healthy immune system, and especially the immune cells such as monocytes and T-cells.

This is probably why it protects against blood cancers, say researchers from the Autonomous University of Madrid, who have reviewed the published research into the vitamin.

Evidence that vitamin D also treats cancer isn't quite so strong, but people whose breast and prostate cancer is more virulent also tend to be low in the vitamin, suggesting it could play some part in the cancers' progress.

For most people, and especially those in the northern hemisphere, daily exposure to sunshine may not be enough to top up levels, and supplements should be taken as well, the researchers say.

Read all about it - but only in WDDTY

From now on, you won't be able to buy WDDTY in a store, as we are reverting to a subscription-only magazine. The reason goes to the very heart of what this publication stands for. As a newsstand title, we were being censored in all sorts of subtle and not-so-subtle ways by a retail trade that chose never to support press freedoms. But we don't want to stop you from getting vital information which is why we've curated this special subscription offer just for you. By subscribing you can still get direct access to all this information every month, via a subscription, as thousands of others do.
