Study Vitamin D Kills Cancer Cells ABC News

Study Vitamin D Kills Cancer Cells ABC News It’s true – vitamin D kills cancer cells! Best of all, here is a medical report you can’t afford to ignore. Scientists have recently uncovered a so called experimental approach to treating inflammatory breast cancer (IBC), a rare and aggressive form of the disease. The new approach uses the active form of vitamin D3, calcitriol, which is delivered by quantum dots to IBC tumors. Quantum dots are engineered, miniscule delivery vehicles which can maneuver directly to a tumor site.

Experts say the new findings support what many oncologists have long suspected. “There has been suspicion that vitamin D is related to breast health in some way, although the particular pathway is still unknown,” noted Dr. Laurie Kirstein, a breast surgeon at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City. “Many oncologists are already following vitamin D levels in their breast cancer patients, and recommending supplements for low levels,” added Kirstein, who was not involved in the new study. Researchers Jeremy Bonor, Rachel Schaefer, and Ania Nohe wanted to see if they could deliver high concentrations of vitamin D to tumors in mice using quantum dots. By the way, women with a low level of vitamin D at the time of diagnosis are 94 percent more likely to have their cancer spread and 73 percent less likely to reach the 10 year survival mark. Nanotechnology works at the molecular level, and quantum dots are tiny light-emitting crystals that can be engineered to seek out a particular disease or type of cell. The quantum dots were used as an experiment with mice. So the advice of the medical experts is don’t run to the doctor for this yet, as it may take years to make this available to the public. But, sunlight is available now to boost immunity; protect us from colds; the flu and now even cancer. So, let’s be honest, it can’t hurt to add (if needed) a high quality, vitamin D supplement to our daily routine. Help us spread the word – share this article with family and friends. 0057
