Vitamin D deficiency effects? It SIGNIFICANTLY increases the likelihood of most cancers, including pancreatic cancer, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer and prostate cancer.
"Vitamin D deficiency is a MAJOR unrecognized health problem,"
according to Michael F. Holick, M.D., at the Boston University Medical
Researchers have long puzzled over why rich northern countries have cancer rates many times higher than those in developing countries, thinking that pollutants were to blame.
An answer to this medical puzzle, however, could be that cancers and other disorders in rich countries aren't caused so much by pollutants but by a vitamin D deficiency.
One of the world's top vitamin D experts, Reinhold Vieth, professor at the Department of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Toronto, says that:
A big bombshell about Vitamin D deficiency effects went off when U.S. researchers announced the first direct link between cancer prevention and the sunshine vitamin.
Their results were nothing short of astounding!
A four-year clinical trial involving 1,200 women found those taking the vitamin had about a 60-per-cent reduction in cancer incidence, compared with those who didn't take it.
This drop in cancer was so large — twice the impact on cancer attributed to smoking — it almost looks like a typing mistake.
One of the researchers who made the discovery, professor of medicine Robert Heaney of Creighton University in Nebraska, says deficiency of this vitamin is showing up in so many illnesses besides cancer that nearly all disease figures in Canada and the U.S. will need to be re-evaluated! Why is this?
In the body, vitamin D is converted into a steroid hormone, and the genes that respond to it play a crucial role in fixing damaged cells and in maintaining good cell health.
Unlike other vitamins, vitamin D is turned into a hormone, making it far more biologically active.
As well, this vitamin is "operating independently in and affecting hundreds of tissues in your body," expains Dr. Cannell.
The "hide-from-the-sun" advice has been misguided information "of just breathtaking proportions," according to Dr. Cannell!
Vitamin D deficiency effects are SERIOUS:
Those studying vitamin D say the hide-from-sunlight advice has amounted to the health equivalent of a foolish poker trade:
Anyone practicing sun avoidance has traded the benefit of a reduced risk of skin cancer — which is easy to detect and treat and seldom fatal — for an increased risk of the scary, high-body-count cancers, such as:
These cancers all are linked to shortages of this vitamin!
In the past, the official word of experts, such as a joint Canadian-U.S. health panel which studied D levels in 1997, had been that the low amounts of this vitamin they found in people's blood were normal.

The evidence is clear, that taking more of this vitamin can reduce cancer -- all types of cancer -- at low cost, with few or no adverse effects.

We hope you have been inspired by this new research on the best of vitamins to build immune system strength for cancer and other diseases.
Researchers are now saying that vitamin D is actually the most potent of the vitamins to build immune system resistance!
Vitamin D deficiency effects are far reaching!!
The lack of vitamin D mental effect can be depression. The sunshine vitamin can help cheer us all up!
So get some sunshine and take a Vitamin D3 supplement as the best of vitamins to build immune system resistance -- to get and to stay healthy.
What foods have vitamin D?
Best not to count on food to supply your vitamin D. Understand that Vitamin D vegetables and vitamin D fruits don't really exist.
Main food sources are fatty fish (think cod liver oil) egg yolks and fortified milk and juice. Fortified milk is not to be counted on -- it is NOT vitamin D3 and therefore cannot be counted on.
Vitamin D mental issues?
Vitamin D anxiety and mood? The sunshine Vitamin D has been shown to play a role in mood disorders and anxiety. 2
Certainly Vitamin D anxiety and mental decline in the elderly has been linked. 3
The developments of cataracts has also been shown to be vitamin D deficiency effects. 4
Age related Macular Degenration, AMD has been related to vitamin D deficiency effects. 5
So, unless you get a lot of sun on your skin year-round, best to take vitamin D supplements! What is enough? Remember that half the people in sunny places like Hawaii and Australia have been shown to be vitamin D deficient.
