A new study suggests that higher levels of vitamin D are associated with a lower risk of breast cancer.
The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that breast cancer is now the most common female cancer in both developed and less developed countries. While many people mistakenly believe breast cancer to be a disease of the developed world, almost 50 percent of cases and 58 percent of deaths now occur in less developed countries. Worldwide, it is estimated that over 508,000 women died in 2011 as a result of this disease.
Although women today are increasingly conscious of the risk of developing breast cancer, the majority still fail to take any scientifically proven steps to prevent it. This is hardly surprising, of course, as health authorities and the mass media continue to promote the misleading message that early detection equates to successful prevention of the disease. Meanwhile, any mention of scientifically proven preventive methods based on the use of micronutrients is quietly ignored.
