Slash Cancer-Related Mortality Risk (Here’s How!)
The medical community has the average citizen concerned about their cholesterol levels.
But they’re barking up the wrong tree.
When it comes to important factors that impact your overall health and longevity, there’s a MUCH more critical blood test you should be getting every year—especially if you’re over 70.
A recent study found that having LOW levels could dramatically increase your risk of dying early from ANY cause at all… but especially from cancer.
In a recent study, researchers looked at three age groups: those in their 50s, 60s, and 70+.
They determined that the older the person, the greater the risk of being deficient in vitamin D.
A deficiency increases the risk of major problems ranging from cancer to fractures, and makes the healthcare costs climb right along with it.
The good news is that correcting vitamin D deficiency could put a major dent in those numbers.
In older adults who were vitamin D deficient, supplementation cut healthcare costs of about one-third.
But more importantly, it decreased all-cause mortality by 7 percent, and decreased the risk of fractures by up to 20 percent.
In older people, fractures are a major cause of disability and early death.
In addition, more than half of the death reduction came as a result of reduced cancer mortality.
Those are impressive numbers for something as simple as managing your vitamin D levels.
You can pay for a supplement, or you can get it for free from the sun (that’s the ideal way).
Either way, I recommend having your blood levels of D checked on a regular basis to make sure you have everything your body needs.
P.S. If you want to make sure that vitamin D is helping to reduce your mortality risk, then you’ll want to be sure to add another “unsung hero” vitamin to your list. Click here for all the details.
