High Levels Of Vitamin D In The Blood Associated With Reduced Risk Of Bladder Cancer

October 31, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Spanish researchers have found a significant link between levels of vitamin D in the blood and the risk of bladder cancer. Study authors analyzed blood samples from 2,000 hospital patients, some of whom had bladder cancer and some of whom did not. They found that those who had the highest levels of 25(OH)D3 in the blood had the least risk of bladder cancer. The results suggest that increasing  the dietary or supplementary intake of vitamin D, or getting more sun exposure, might benefit patients in terms of prevention and treatment.
