Story at-a-glance -

  • Researchers revealed new mechanisms by which vitamin D is effective against estrogen receptor positive breast cancer cells, including suppressing the expression of aromatase, the enzyme that catalyzes estrogen synthesis in breast cancer cells, and increasing expression of 15-PGDH, a tumor suppressor
  • Past research also supports the effectiveness of vitamin D for breast cancer, with one study showing light-skinned women who had high amounts of long-term sun exposure had half the risk of developing advanced breast cancer (cancer that spreads beyond your breast) as women with lower amounts of regular sun exposure
  • Scientists have found about 3,000 genes that are upregulated by vitamin D; the vitamin has an impact on not only cancer but also autoimmune diseases, heart disease, obesity, dementia, and more
  • The ideal way to optimize your vitamin D level is through sun exposure or a safe tanning bed
