“A new study from the Slone Epidemiology Center and the Boston University School of Medicine suggests that Black women with a low vitamin D status have an increased risk of developing colorectal cancer, in line with the findings of previous epidemiologic studies conducted in White populations.” [Source: newswise.com]
Previous research has already noted a link between vitamin D status and colorectal cancer. A large international study published in 2019 found that higher circulating concentrations of vitamin D are associated with a lower risk of the disease. Conversely, people with deficient levels were found to have a 31 percent increased risk of colorectal cancer. Significantly, the researchers noted that the levels of vitamin D found to be effective in protecting against the disease were higher than current government recommendations. This finding adds to the evidence that current recommendations are in urgent need of revision.
