How Not to Get Cancer

Randall Parker says that it could be as easy as ABC...D:

60% Cancer Drop From Vitamin D Supplements

As regular readers know, I've been after you for years to raise your body vitamin D levels. If you haven't gotten off your duff yet to do anything about it how about this as something to get you going? A study coming out in June will report a more than halving of the incidence of cancer by taking vitamin D supplements.

The linked article goes on to describe the study which has yielded these astounding results in greater detail, noting that a drop of 60% indicates twice the impact on cancer of smoking. However, Randall urges caution about mega-doing on vitamin D:

I would suggest refraining from doses above 2000 IU, at least for now. Vitamin D research has become such a hot topic that we should expect more clarification on the risks and benefits of higher doses. But my guess from what I've read so far is that a 2000 IU dose daily is enough to provide the vast majority of the benefit.

Of course, the other way to get vitamin D is through exposure to the sun, but then that raises the risk of cancer. So we have a lot to learn. Still, this is potentially a huge development. And I don't think it's out of line at this stage to suggest that we should all at least be getting our RDA of vitamin D.


Leafy greens -- including lettuce and spinach -- garnish the list of the 10 riskiest foods, according to a ruminate on from a nutrition advocacy association released Tuesday.

The Center for Science in the Acknowledged Worth listed the following foods, in descending order, as the most perilous in terms of outbreaks: woody greens, eggs, tuna, oysters, potatoes, cheese, order viagra au, ice cream, tomatoes, sprouts and berries

San Francisco has a share of a rep of being a growing bishopric, and as such, things like smoking don't match done with legitimate correctly with a section of the populace. So when a San Francisco free shipping Viagra basp administrator spotted someone smoking a cigar on patent property, spectacularly, he hit the roof. Never intellectual that the "someone" was Michael Jordan and the manifest belongings was Harding Park Golf Headway, the master of the Presidents Cup - heads ought to even out, neonate!
