How sunlight prevents death from prostate cancer
If you want to save your prostate and spare yourself a cancer death, forget all about PSA tests, drugs, surgeries, and everything else the mainstream has been throwing at this disease.
Head to the beach instead.
That's because the very sunlight you've been told to avoid can actually save you from any number of cancers, and the latest research puts prostate cancer high on that list.
Harvard researchers tracked more than 2,500 men for nearly two decades and found that high D levels slashed the risk of dying of prostate cancer by more than half.
In fact, nearly a third of the men who died of prostate cancer were among those with the lowest D levels of anyone in the study, while only 16 percent of the deaths were among men with high levels.
Once you crunch the numbers that adds up to a 57 percent overall reduction in the risk of death -- and that's not the only big news out of the study.
It turns out D didn't lower the overall risk of a tumor -- just the risk of dying from one. This means the sunshine vitamin ignores the harmless tumors you don't need to worry about, while stopping the deadly ones that could kill you.
There's not an oncologist on the planet that's figured out how to do that!
Vitamin D's no one-trick pony when it comes to cancer, either. It can also help fight or prevent lung, colon, breast, and endometrial cancer. And despite what you've heard, vitamin D can prevent the deadliest forms of skin cancer.
That's one of the reasons the skin cancer rate has actually shot up since D-blocking sunscreens came on the market -- but only one. The other reason is that those icky gooey creams and lotions themselves actually contain dangerous cancer-causing chemicals.
The synthetic form of vitamin A used in many until just recently was even found to SPEED the growth of tumors when exposed to sunlight.
But whether they contain that A or not, skip 'em all. The only protection you really need from the sun is a shady tree or a beach umbrella -- and the sense to get under it before you get burned.
