Cancer

There is a common link between Vitamin D and cancer, researchers have been aware of this connection since the 1940’s when a researcher from the Medical College of Virginia demonstrated a link between latitude (which predicts our exposure to sunlight, our main source of D) and death from cancer.

In certain types of cancer such as pancreatic, Vitamin D may be able to help stop the growth of cells making the tumor more vulnerable to chemotherapy treatment.
