Lack of Vitamin D and prostate cancer are highly correlated!
Vitamin D studies show that most people today are deficient in this essential vitamin and that increasing the amount of vitamin D in your body reduces your cancer risk by 50% or more, including prostate cancer!
Prevent and reverse prostate cancer with this simple change: add sun. Get vitamin D and prostate cancer risk declines dramatically. How?
Vitamin D suppresses the growth of tumor cells. With chronic vitamin D shortages in the body, the symptoms of vitamin D shortage can appear. In the case of the prostate, low levels of vitamin D and prostate cancer are clearly linked.
Vitamin D has many other health benefits. It is the single most important nutrient for your good health. When you are low in vitamin D, you are much more prone to a whole range of health conditions.
Vitamin D acts like a hormone in the body and is crucial for prostate health, let alone your overall health. Most men are very low in vitamin D, especially black or darker-skinned Americans, whose skin color was designed to withstand lots of daily sun exposure.
In the winter in northern climates, most men are extremely deficient in vitamin D because of the lack of sun exposure. Black Americans have the highest rates of prostate cancer. Many practitioners correlate that risk with low levels of vitamin D.
In fact, the incidence of prostate cancer is greater in countries further north where sunlight levels are much less in the winter. This again correlates with lack of vitamin D and prostate cancer.
Boston University School of Medicine writes about the correlation between vitamin D and prostate cancer here.
We have been sold on the fact that sun exposure is bad for us. Now people avoid the sun completely, cover up when out, or use chemical sunscreens, which are actually toxic and cancer causing.
Responsible sun exposure, avoiding the strongest mid-day rays, is so beneficial and needs to be done without sunscreen for at least 15-20 minutes per day. Stay out longer if your skin colouration is naturally darker because it takes longer to absorb the needed amount of Vitamin D from the sun.
Dark skin acts as a natural sunscreen to protect dark-skinned people from the sun when out in it all day, as our ancestors were. But we are not! So the darker your skin the more time you need under the sun.
If you want to use a sunscreen during mid-day then use an Organic Zinc Oxide Sunscreen.
Try to get sun on your skin. Nothing beats it. If you can't, then Vitamin D supplements are essential.
If sun exposure cannot happen due to winter's dark, cloudy days, or because you lack the time, then the best way to supplement is with potent cod liver oil. This way you are getting your vitamin D direct from a food source rather than a manufactured supplement.
This amazing concentrated food source - cod liver oil - provides digestible fat-soluble vitamin D, plus vitamin A, as well as rich amounts of eicosapentaenoic acid and docasahexaenoic acid. The Weston A. Price Foundation writes:
“Cod liver oil is also rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docasahexaenoic acid (DHA). The body makes these fatty acids from omega-3 linolenic acid. EPA is as an important link in the chain of fatty acids that ultimately results in prostaglandins, localized tissue hormones while DHA is very important for the proper function of the brain and nervous system.”
The natural cod liver oil is fermented to increase its potency and absorbability and is mixed with High-Vitamin Butter Oil. The combination of the two produces an amazing health food in very concentrated form. Capsules are what I use: Green Pastures Blue Ice Royal Capsules.
The next best choice for vitamin D and prostate cancer prevention is natural vitamin D3 supplements, but this is nowhere near as good as the cod liver oil, which has been time tested over thousands of years.
When buying any vitamin D supplement, make sure that you’re getting Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), not D2, an inactive form of Vitamin D. D2 is about 10 times less effective because it is difficult for the body to absorb and use. Vitamin D3 is fat-soluble, so it is best to take it with some fat or oily food. That’s why cod liver oil is so effective!
The minimum amounts now recommended for vitamin D and prostate cancer prevention keep going up. It is crucial that you personally test for the optimum quantity you need, and retest regularly to see if the quantity changes, especially as the seasons come and go. I prefer 1000 IU because you can easily personally test how many to take and adjust easily the amount.
I teach you how to personally test for optimum levels in my book, Healthy Prostate.
To find out the times of day and the periods of the year that produce the optimum levels of USB rays for Vitamin D absorption then you need to pinpoint the locale where you live.

Note Dear Reader...
You must change your diet by stopping those foods that are triggering your condition and replacing them with new ones that nourish you and your prostate.
