Canadians Told To Take Vitamin D

A hearty recommendation has been made by the Canadian Cancer Society to take Vitamin D supplements.

A recent study by researchers at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Md., found that people with higher levels of vitamin D when they entered the study had an impressive 72 per cent reduced risk of dying from colorectal cancer, compared to those with the lowest levels of vitamin D.

Our bodies use sunshine to manufacture Vitamin D. Due to the less overall sunshine in Canada, Canadians are less likely to produce the Vitamin D they need, thus the suggestion that all Canadians add Vitamin D supplements to their diet. American, too, may not be getting enough Vitamin D.

Once again, how we handle our diet, is shown to effect our health. Check with your doctor to see if you need to supplement your diet with Vitamin D. Don't go crazy about this, Vitamin D is not a magic bullet, but you do need to have enough of it in your system for good health.
