Vitamin D levels may have an important role in cancer prognosis

the ONA take:

People with very low levels of vitamin D appear to be at higher risk of death from all causes including cancer, according to a paper published in BMJ. The paper also shows that vitamin D could play an important role in cancer prognosis. Sun exposure is the main source of vitamin D. Women are more prone to low vitamin D than men, but vitamin D deficiency is especially common in the elderly. Data were taken from seven population-based cohorts from the United States and Europe. An association was found between low levels of vitamin D and death from cancer in people with a history of the disease, whereas no association was found in those without a history of cancer. The researchers conclude that those with the lowest levels of vitamin D had an association with increased cancer mortality in those with a history of cancer, as well as all-cause mortality and cardiovascular mortality.
