Many people know already that the “sunshine vitamin” is key for bone health, but studies continue to show that the benefits of vitamin D are far more reaching than previously imagined. In fact, new research has shown that vitamin D could cut the risk of cancer by 20 percent or more. Multiple studies have pointed to the anti-cancer effects of vitamin D, but as sources explain, most studies have been carried out in European or American populations. Vitamin D levels and metabolism can vary across different demographics, so analyzing the benefits of this vital nutrient across multiple populations is critical to truly understanding its preventive power. Researchers have now found a similar … [Read more...] about Another study finds Vitamin D reduces risk of cancer – by 20% or more

Higher sun exposure during childhood and early adulthood can further decrease the risk. These were the conclusions that an investigative team came to in their study, published in Neurology. “While previous studies have shown that more sun exposure may contribute to a lower risk of MS, our study went further, looking at exposure over a person’s lifespan. We found that where a person lives and the ages at which they are exposed to the sun’s [ultraviolet B] rays may play important roles in reducing the risk of MS,” said Dr. Helen Tremlett, lead study author and associate professor at The University of … [Read more...] about Vitamin D for multiple sclerosis: Study shows living in sunnier climate reduces risk

Like guns or, more specifically, protesting guns. As you may have heard, tens of thousands of people showed up in Washington, D.C., on Saturday to demand that something is done about firearms — not the people who misuse them for deadly purposes. In the wake of those protests, demonstrators left mountains of trash and garbage — signs, water bottles, food containers, and various other things — behind for local trash collectors paid for local taxpayers to clean up. “Thousands of protestors at March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C., Saturday packed the … [Read more...] about Weekend anti-gun protests in D.C., like previous Left-wing demonstrations, generate tons of trash for others to clean up

Researchers from the University of Rwanda College of Medicine & Health Sciences and Harvard University collaborated for the study in order to examine the role of magnesium in the activation and function of vitamin D. The researchers found that vitamin D will not metabolize properly and can remain stored and inactive within the body without sufficient magnesium. They explained that magnesium allows vitamin D to be transformed into a usable form within the body. They further … [Read more...] about Are you getting enough vitamin D?
