The Role of Vitamin D in Cancer Prevention

Een ander studierapport over de rol die vitamine D speelt bij ontstaan van ziektes is deze: 


Onderaan artikel het abstract van de studie. Hier twee grafieken uit die studie, 1 over waar borstkanker het meest voorkomt en 1 waar darmkanker het meest voorkomt. O.a in die landen waar weinig zon is:
Vitamine D en borstkanker

Age-adjusted breast cancer mortality rates, by county area, and contours of annual mean daily solar irradiance in Langleys (calories/cm2), United States, 1970–1994.

Een grote overzichtstudie van 65 zogeheten observatie studies toont aan dat een hoge en blijkbaar voldoende concentratie vitamine D in bloed en vaak bewerkstelligd door natuurlijke vitamine D aanmaak door blootstelling aan de zon een verminderd risico op bepaalde vormen van kanker kan geven van 20% tot wel 50%. Genoemd worden borstkanker, prostaatkanker, eierstokkanker en darmkanker. Het abstract in Pubmed is heel kort weergegeven en er worden zelfs geen percentages genoemd. De Telegraaf meldde wel de genoemde percentages en ook het KWF gaf blijkbaar in een reactie aan dat deze studiegegevens wel eens waar zou kunnen zijn.

Vitamin D status differs by latitude and race, with residents of the northeastern United States and individuals with more skin pigmentation being at increased risk of deficiency. A PubMed database search yielded 63 observational studies of vitamin D status in relation to cancer risk, including 30 of colon, 13 of breast, 26 of prostate, and 7 of ovarian cancer, and several that assessed the association of vitamin D receptor genotype with cancer risk. The majority of studies found a protective relationship between sufficient vitamin D status and lower risk of cancer. The evidence suggests that efforts to improve vitamin D status, for example by vitamin D supplementation, could reduce cancer incidence and mortality at low cost, with few or no adverse effects.
