Breast Cancer Linked to Vitamin D Deficiency

Usually the minute I post an article like this one from ThirdAge.com another study is released that contradicts the study I am posting about----that's just the way life goes. This article talks about a possible link between low levels of Vitamin D and increased risk of breast cancer. I've said it before----this is something you need to talk to your doctor about, and if you have not had a Vitamin D level blood test, push to get one! The amount of Vitamin D necessary for you is as individual as it is for every patient, I take 5000 IUs of Vitamin D year round, and bump it up to 10,000 IUs in the months of November-February.
