Vascular Health Sciences Chief Science Officer Nathalie Chevreau weighs in on new study related to vitamin D and breast cancer.
Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) February 11, 2013
Recent breast cancer research by scientists at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine shows that low Vitamin D levels in the blood in the months preceding diagnosis, are often positively correlated with a higher risk of pre-menopausal breast cancer. While the mechanisms that support the findings are not completely understood at this time, the recent insights suggest that the association between breast cancer prevention and vitamin D is most high in the three months preceding the diagnosis of a tumor.
Vascular Health Sciences Chief Science Officer Nathalie Chevreau, PhD, R.D. weighed in on the news, praising the study, but asking for continued diligence.
“The research results provide a helpful light,” said Chevreau. “But, let's be clear that further research is essential in order to eliminate breast cancer without the use of prescription pharmaceuticals, which is critical."
During a previous analysis, several colleagues estimated that an increased blood serum level of vitamin D by 50 percent is associated with a 50 percent reduction in breast cancer. In addition, the study shows promise for a wide range of other cancers and most experts suggest that further research is required in order to find the root cause of breast cancer and not merely treat the symptoms.
