Study: Low Vitamin D May Increase Colon Cancer Risk

by: oneupweb

A new study conducted by European researchers found that people with high vitamin D levels have a 40 percent lower risk of developing colorectal cancer.

The study measured the vitamin D levels of 1,248 colorectal cancer patients who developed the cancer after enrolling into the study, against 1,248 cancer-free individuals. They found the individuals in the lower fifths of vitamin D levels were more likely to develop the disease.

Experts say more research is needed to firmly conclude that a diet rich in vitamin D will ward off colon cancer.
