Top Stories

There’s new evidence that Vitamin D might protect against Colorectal Cancer.

Researchers at the American Cancer Society, Harvard and the National Cancer Institute pulled together data on more than 12-thousand people.

Those who had higher than recommended blood levels of Vitamin D had a lower risk of developing Colon Cancer. 

And those with a Vitamin D deficiency were more likely to be diagnosed with the disease.

The American Cancer Society predicts more than 140-thousand new cases of Colorectal Cancer will be diagnosed this year.
