Vitamin D hay help protect against colorectal cancer (January 20, 2015 - Insidermedicine)
From Boston - Vitamin D may help protect against colorectal cancer, according to a report published in Gut. Researchers studied data on 170,000 individuals taking part in two long-term health tracking studies. Researchers then selected a group of 318 colorectal cancer patients and over 600 cancer-free controls, and reviewed participants blood samples before and after they developed cancer. Results showed that those who had high amounts of 25-hydroxyvitamin D ( substance produced in the liver by vitamin D) had lower risk of colorectal cancer enriched with immune system cells.
