Dirt-Cheap Nutrient SLASHES Cancer Risk

Nobody wants to end up with a cancer diagnosis.

The disease is bad enough… but the barbaric treatments like chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery are even worse.

Fortunately, scientists have just uncovered a simple way to slash your risk of ever developing a deadly case of cancer.

Better still? You can start today… and it doesn’t have to cost a dime.

Vitamin D is best known for its role in bone health. But two new studies have shown that getting enough of this vitamin can reduce two common types of cancer: breast and colon cancer.

That’s the good news.

The bad news is that these studies also revealed that the current guidelines for sufficient vitamin D levels aren’t nearly high enough.

That’s something I’ve been saying for years…

The first study, published in PLOS ONE, combined data from three studies involving over 5,000 women over 55 years old.

The results showed that the women who had vitamin D blood levels above 60 ng/ml had one-fifth the risk of developing breast cancer as women with vitamin D levels less than 20 ng/ml.

That number is important because 20 ng/ml is the current blood level recommended by the National Academy of Medicine.

And it’s clearly not high enough.

A separate study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute found similar results with vitamin D and colon cancer.

This particular study pooled data from 17 separate studies involving nearly 13,000 people. It showed that vitamin D could lower the risk of colon cancer—but (again) not at the current recommended level.

Those who had higher-than-recommended vitamin D levels had a 22% lower risk of colon cancer.

This is one of those situations where you shouldn’t wait for the guidelines to catch up to the science.

Have your 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels checked. If they’re lower than 60 ng/ml, start looking for ways to improve your levels.

Hands down, the best way to do that is to spend more time in the sun, so your body can make vitamin D naturally.

Beyond that, you can eat vitamin-D-rich foods like salmon, sardines, beef liver, oysters, and eggs.

To a brighter day,
