An absolutely STUNNING new study reveals a safe and inexpensive way to slash the risk of cancer, especially in some of the very folks most at risk for the disease.
And I bet you haven’t heard a thing about it!
In fact, if you’ve heard anything at all on the new study, it’s just the opposite, since the mainstream media deliberately distorted it.
The headlines all scream that vitamin D and calcium WON’T cut the risk of cancer, as if it’s now officially settled.
That didn’t make a heck of a lot of sense to me. I’ve seen enough studies to know D can cut the risk of cancer.
So, I dug into the details and uncovered the TRUTH about these nutrients and cancer risk — and as it turns out, the study REALLY shows how these two supplements can cut your cancer risk dramatically!
In the four-year study, some 2,300 older women were given either a placebo or supplements with 2,000 IU of vitamin D and 1,500 mg of calcium.
Over the next four years, just 4 percent of the women who took the supplements developed cancer compared to 6 percent of those on the placebo.
That’s a difference of a THIRD!
Amazingly, this vast difference wasn’t considered “statistically significant” since the overall rate of cancer was so low either way.
So, the researchers did some additional numbers-crunching afterward and found something even more incredible.
The REAL benefit might be even bigger!
You know what a sneaky SOB cancer is. It doesn’t just pop up one day like the flu. By the time it’s found, you’ve been secretly sick with it for months… maybe even years.
So, the researchers yanked out all the cancers detected in the first year of the study, as most of them were no doubt forming before the clinical trial even began.
Once they excluded those cases, they found that vitamin D and calcium supplements cut the risk of cancer by 35 percent — a number they say is VERY significant.
Clearly, this stuff will give you some potent protection against a leading killer, and I doubt the benefit is limited to women.
The key is to make sure you get what you need.
Calcium and D work together, so you need both… but don’t limit yourself to 2,000 IU per day of the sunshine vitamin. Some folks could use double that level or more, and you might be one of them if you don’t get outside as much as you used to.
Your doc can run a quick test to figure out your D levels, how much you need and the best way to get it.
