Vitamin D and Breast Cancer

Greater levels of vitamin D associated with decreased risk of breast cancer

vitamin d and breast cancerIn a recent study, data showed that women with Vitamin D levels of 60 ng/mL or higher had an 80% lower breast cancer risk than women with vitamin D blood levels less than 20 ng/mL.

A combined data set from two randomized clinical trials with 3,000 participants and a prospective study with an additional 1,700 participants examined the association between serum 25 hydroxyvitamin D levels and female breast cancer risk.

The data was collected from 2012-2017 and participants were women ages 55 and older (average age, 65) who were cancer free on enrollment and followed for a mean of four years.

Of note: The National Academy of Medicine recommends vitamin D levels of at least 20 ng/mL solely to support bone health.
