In a new study, researchers used a complex computer prediction model to determine that intake of vitamin D3 and calcium would prevent 58,000 new cases of breast cancer and 49,000 new cases of colorectal cancer annually in the U.S. and Canada. The researchers’ model also predicted that 75 percent of deaths from these cancers could be prevented with adequate intake of vitamin D3 and calcium.
Dr. Cedric Garland, University of California, San Diego Campus (UCSD) School of Medicine, lead researcher on the study discusses the implications of this finding and the proposed actions.
