VITAMIN D

HIGH levels of vitamin D in the body may improve survival rates in cancer patients.

Two new studies say that people with more vitamin D – which is produced by the skin in sunlight – when diagnosed with bowel or skin cancer were more likely to survive.

Vitamin D deficiency has also been linked to reducing the risk of multiple sclerosis.

In the first study, a team from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston followed more than 1,000 bowel cancer patients for about nine years.

Researchers estimated the vitamin D in their blood at the time of diagnosis, and found those with higher levels were 50 per cent less likely to die from the disease.
