Role of Vitamin D in prevention of cancer: dose-response relationships, Cancer Prevention Research, 11/08
...While it is not yet possible to state eradication levels for cancers of the kidney and endometrium, the available ecological data suggest that a reduction by 67% in kidney and endometrial cancer might be possible with serum 25(OH)D > 75 ng/ml....
...according to a National Academy of Sciences (NAS) 1996 monograph...serious adverse health effects are unlikely below 10,000 IU per day [this is the amt we get from the sun everyday], based on existing meta-analyses of vitamin D toxicity studies....
...Patients with breast, colon, ovarian, kidney, endometrial, and lung cancer should receive the amount of vitamin D supplementation needed to raise serum 25(OH)D to 60-90 ng/ml. This may require 4000-7000 IU/day of vitamin D3, depending on the individual, and should be done with regular monitoring of serum 25(OH)D, ionized and total calcium levels on a regular basis....

Thanks much for the Vit D Symposium link. You,, along with others, have posted some very interesting and hopeful articles today. How lucky we are to have you all posting.

I am currently on a weekly 50,000 IU Vit D prescriptin supplement because of a low count...take it for 3 weeks and then tested.

Peace and hope, JJ
