How the sunshine vitamin fights tumors
It's one of the most powerful weapons yet in the fight against cancer -- an all-natural remedy proven to weaken and even KILL tumor cells.
And you can get it for free just by stepping outside on a sunny day.
It's plain old vitamin D, of course -- so effective against the disease that a leading British doctor is urging every woman over the age of 20 to take D supplements to prevent breast cancer.
Professor Kefah Mokbel estimates that widespread D supplementation would prevent at least 1,000 breast cancer deaths per year in Britain alone. Using his numbers, that would translate into nearly 3,500 lives saved here in the United States every single year.
By my own estimate, the number would almost certainly be higher -- because the evidence for the sunshine vitamin is clear as day: The higher your levels, the lower your risk of any number of cancers, because D fights tumors in at least three different ways.
First, the active form of D -- called calcitriol -- FORCES cancer cells to adapt to whatever organ they've invaded. This effectively turns a would-be killer cancer cell into a harmless ordinary cell.
Second, it KILLS most of the cells that don't make the change via the cellular death process, known as apoptosis.
And finally, it boosts the immune system -- giving your body the power to FIGHT whatever's left.
That makes D an effective weapon against a wide range of cancers, from lung cancer to colorectal cancer. And it's especially potent against breast cancer. Take it now, ladies, and your risk of getting the disease will drop by a third -- and your risk of dying from it will be cut in half, according to studies.
The best way to get your D is straight from the source: quality sunscreen-free time outside every day so you body can make it on its own. But since you can't always manage that -- and, depending on the season and weather, you may not always get the sunlight you need even if you do head outdoors -- take a supplement.
I recommend between 2,000 IUs and 5,000 IUs per day for men and women alike.
