You hear so much about vitamin D these and that’s because so much positive research keeps coming out about it.  There have already been many studies looking at the relationship between vitamin D and various cancers.

A new one was done on Saudi women, who were assumed to be low in vitamin D due to darker skin tone and reduced UV light exposure.  One hundred and twenty women with breast cancer and one hundred and twenty controls had their vitamin D levels checked.

They found that those with breast cancer had significantly lower vitamin D levels compared to controls.
