Vitamin D and Colorectal Cancer

There’s another study showing the anti-cancer properties of Vitamin D. “According to a new study led by researchers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, clinical trial patients with metastaticcolorectal cancerwho had high levels of vitamin D in their bloodstream prior to treatment with chemotherapy and targeted drugs, survived longer, on average, than patients with lower levels of the vitamin.” 

These findings were recently reported at the 2015 American Society of Cancer Oncology (ASCO) Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium in San Francisco.
