According to the Scotsman (March 23, 2004) low levels of vitamin D in the blood are linked with increased breast cancer risk. A recent study has shown that vitamin D plays a protective role. Icon in February 2004 covered vitamin D extensively - the vitamin that works like a hormone - it is atypical of vitamins in that the human body does actually make it. Sunlight on our subcutaneous cholesterol levels make cholocalciferol the precursor of vitamin D.

If you don’t get enough sunlight, try fish oils (preferably dioxin free). Laboratory tests (Shokravi et al 1995) have shown vitamin D inhibits the growth of new blood vessels essential to tumour growth.
