New study proves you can stop the spread of cancer

I've told you in the past that vitamin D helps fight cancer. We've known this for some time. In fact, many conventional doctors will give vitamin D to men with prostate cancer because they know it helps. But men aren't the only ones who benefit. Everyone does. And a new study shows why.

Researchers at Canada's McGill University found that vitamin D3, the active form of the vitamin, inhibits the production of the protein cMYC. This protein causes cells to divide. And other research has shown that high amounts of this protein are in more than half of all cancers. The protein causes cancer cells to divide and can make the cancer spread faster.

The Canadian researchers also found that vitamin D3 also inhibits the function of any cMYC protein you already have. Just how effective is vitamin D against this protein? According to the researchers, "We found that vitamin D strongly stimulates the production of a natural antagonist of cMYC called MXD1, essentially shutting down cMYC function."

The researchers continued, "Our results show that vitamin D puts the brakes on cMYC function, suggesting that it may slow the progression of cells from premalignant to malignant states and keep their proliferation in check."

This is big news. It means that this powerful and inexpensive vitamin can eliminate the ability of cMYC to encourage the spread of your cancer.

Unfortunately, most people are deficient in vitamin D. This could be one reason the rate of cancer has gone up so fast in recent years. And unless you're taking a high potency supplement, you're probably not getting enough vitamin D in the fall or winter months. In fact, I doubt you can get enough in the summer to protect you from numerous illnesses including cancer. This is especially true if you avoid the sun or use sunscreen.

So make sure you're taking plenty of vitamin D right now. And make sure it's vitamin D3. Most studies show that the synthetic form, vitamin D2, isn't as effective. I suggest you take 5,000 IU of vitamin D3 daily.
