Seem unbelievable? Well that’s exactly what Dr. Cedric Garland presented when he was the keynote speaker in Toronto, Canada recently. He was very clear, in his position as a leader in vitamin D research, that he has seen sufficient evidence to pronounce that if women kept their vitamin D levels sufficiently high, the risk of breast cancer could be near ZERO for these women.
He even said,”Vitamin D is “the cure” for breast cancer that the cancer industry ridiculously claims to be searching for. The cure already exists! But the breast cancer industry simply refuses to acknowledge any “cure” that doesn’t involve mammography, chemotherapy or high-profit pharmaceuticals.”
You can read his full statement in the article from “Natural News” here: Vitamin D & Breast Cancer
If you’ve watched my “Breast Cancer Risk Reduction Workshop” you already know that Vitamin D plays a critical role in cancer risk reduction, but Dr. Garland has strengthened his stance as of late. In my office I strive to have women raise their vitamin D levels to at least 55 (most labs consider anything over 32 to be adequate).
You should have your vitamin D levels checked every 3 months until you reach your goal of a value over 55, and then check them annually thereafter!
The appropriate test to request from your doctor is the “25 OH Vitamin D” test.
