Vitamin D May Reduce Breast Cancer Risk Dramatically
Women who get lots of vitamin D are less likely to develop breast cancer and other types of cancer. Where do you get vitamin D? It's easy. Just go for a sunbath. Why women who spent time outdoors often get less breast cancer risk? It's because exposure to sunlight produces vitamin D and help develop breasts particularly around adolescence.
The body makes vitamin D from sunlight, but sun exposure is controversial because of the risk of skin cancer, and that could be harmful. Well, just get a reasonable time of sunbath daily.
Also, vitamin D is found in salmon, tuna and other oily fish, and is routinely added to milk, but diet accounts for very little of the nutrient that actually makes it into the bloodstream. So how about dried mushrooms in your cooking? Dried mushroom is a good source of vitamin D, too.
