sunshine vitamin

  1. Vitamin D reduces breast cancer death risk by 50%

    The best tumor fighter under the sun slashes death risk

    There's a moment in which every guy out there knows he's holding his wife's life in his hands. And, no, it's not in a church, when you're slipping a ring on her finger--it's usually in a bathroom, when your terrified sweetie asks, "Does this feel like a lump to you?"

    I can't tell you how many women I've known over the years who felt perfectly fine... healthy as a horse... when they discovered that first, dreaded lump.

    But they sure didn't stay that way. Next thing you know--in a desperate bid to conquer cancer for good--many of those same wives, mothers and daughters are practically BEGGING clueless mainstream docs to hack apart their breasts and inject them with sickening chemo drugs.

    And if you've ever thought there HAS to be a better way... if you've ever been convinced that there must be more to beating cancer than just walking around like a bald, emaciated concentration camp survivor... you're so right.

    There IS an all-natural cancer-fighting breakthrough available to you starting TODAY. Unlike mainstream medicine treatments it's not going to make you sicker, and it doesn't even have to cost you a penny.

    A group of California researchers has PROVEN that just by keeping your body stocked with a healthy supply of vitamin D, you could slash your risk of dying from breast cancer in half!

    Researchers analyzed five studies of more than 4,000 gals who were locked in the fight of their lives against breast cancer, and found that those with the highest levels of vitamin D were 50% less likely to die. That's because vitamin D actually helps your body stop tumors from growing and spreading.

    I think you'll agree, that sounds a heck of a lot better than a second round of chemo.

    In fact, just a few months back, I told you about a breakthrough British study that discovered how vitamin D can actually turn tumors into harmless cells. The scientist behind the study says vitamin D supplements could erase 1,000 breast cancer deaths in the UK alone every single year!

    Big Pharma has been waging a silent war against vitamin D for decades because they can't make a penny off of it. They even appear to have tried to cook the books with a study using a dose of vitamin D that they knew (or darn well should have known) was way too small to be useful.

    But trust me when I say that vitamin D may be the greatest natural cure Mother Nature has ever invented. I've been awestruck by the amazing results my own patients achieved with vitamin D supplementation over the years.

    You can get all the vitamin D you need from regular sun exposure or from dirt-cheap supplements available for pennies a day. And if you're a breast cancer patient, I'd recommend you talk with your doc about getting started right now, because a little D may be just what you need to beat the Big C for good.

  2. Can vitamin D really hurt you?

    Sorting fact from fiction on vitamin D

    The clock is running out on 2011, but it looks like there's still time to squeeze in one last phony vitamin panic.

    In this one, researchers claim high levels of vitamin D will boost your risk of serious heart problems -- despite what their own study REALLY found: that LOW levels of the sunshine vitamin will up your odds of heart failure, high blood pressure, kidney failure, and diabetes.

    Of course, they didn't want to talk about any of that.

    Instead, the presentation at a recent American Heart Association meeting focused on the most freakish conclusion of the entire study: Patients with the highest blood levels of vitamin D -- 100 ng/ml or higher -- had a bump in the risk of atrial fibrillation.

    Why is it freakish? Because I've been called an extremist for recommending blood levels of HALF that -- 50 ng/ml -- and even people who live in the tropics and get constant sun exposure all day long generally hover at around 60 ng/ml.

    In other words, these just aren't optimal or even realistic levels of vitamin D3 -- and I'd bet that very few of the 132,000 participants in the new study actually fell into this category.

    We don't know for sure, because the researchers didn't actually break it down for us.

    We also don't know how many patients fell into the next-highest category, between 80 and 100 ng/ml, but I'd bet this was the next-smallest group -- yet these patients actually had the LOWEST A-fib risk of anyone in the study.

    That means we're supposed to believe that 100 ng/ml will prevent the condition -- but 101 ng/ml will cause it.


    Ignore the panic and take your vitamin D3. Not only are "high" levels safe, but studies have repeatedly found that the sunshine vitamin will boost everything from your cardiovascular health to your immune system.

    Winter is here, the sun is low -- and you need your D now more than ever.

  3. Vitamin D boosts pancreas function

    Now, a new study finds that vitamin D might keep that ship afloat just a little longer: Researchers say the sunshine vitamin can help the organ's beta cells keep up with the surging demand for insulin that marks pre-diabetes.
