Default Sun exposure (vitamin D) kills Cancer cells

The seemingly limitless benefits of vitamin D are easier to fathom when you understand that it is actually a steroid hormone that influences your entire body. Receptors that respond to vitamin D have been found in almost every type of human cell, from your bones to your brain.

Your organs can convert the vitamin D in your bloodstream into calcitriol, which is the hormonal or activated version of vitamin D. Your organs then use it to repair damage, including that from cancer cells.

Your body is clearly designed to spend time in the sun.

But modern living has reduced most people’s sun exposure to the point that the vast majority of the earth’s population is now vitamin D deficient. According to one landmark study, some 600,000 cases of breast and colorectal cancers could be prevented each year if vitamin D levels among populations worldwide were increased. And that’s just counting the death toll for two types of cancer.

Earlier studies have shown that optimizing your vitamin D levels could help you to prevent at least 16 different types of cancer including pancreatic, lung, ovarian, prostate, and skin cancers. But now we’re starting to see more evidence that the type of cancer in question may not be all that important, because vitamin D appears to play a key role in the development of ALL types of cancer!

One recent large-scale, randomized, placebo-controlled study on vitamin D and cancer showed that vitamin D can cut overall cancer risk by as much as 60 percent! This was such groundbreaking news, the Canadian Cancer Society has actually begun endorsing the vitamin as a cancer-prevention therapy.

Here's some more info about Vitamin D:

Quote:
Too Much Vitamin D Can Cause Cancer

Having too much or too little vitamin D may increase the risk of prostate cancer in men, according to a study. Researchers conducted a study on men from Norway, Finland and Sweden using vitamin D serum banks of 200,000 samples to find out if high and low levels of vitamin D are associated with higher prostate cancer risk.
They studied 622 prostate cancer cases and 1,451 matched controls and found that both low and high vitamin D serum concentrations are linked with an increased risk of prostate cancer. Researchers found that both low and high vitamin D in the participants were associated with the higher risk of prostate cancer.
Researchers found that the normal levels (40-60) of vitamin D are linked with the lowest risk of prostate cancer. It is recommend that vitamin D be supplemented, however warn that too much vitamin D can increase a person’s risk of cancer.

Tanning beds are also what causes skin cancer.
tanning bed and UV rays They radiate artificial UV rays, so the habitual, consistent use of tanning beds puts us at the same risk as does overexposure to sun rays and in many cases they cause melanoma.

The three most common types of skin cancer are:

• Basal cell carcinoma

• Squamous cell carcinoma

• Melanoma

All three can be linked to overexposure to ultraviolet rays from tanning beds and/or the sun. Melanoma is the deadliest.

Vitamin D, the cure-all supplement that could be bad for your health

It is called "bottled sunshine" and claimed to be one of the most effective health supplements on the market. Scores of studies have suggested that it protects against heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, schizophrenia and multiple sclerosis, and a growing number of doctors have recommended it to their patients.

But vitamin D, it turns out, has been oversold. After reviewing more than 1,000 research papers, the authoritative Institute of Medicine in the US has concluded that the high levels often recommended are unnecessary and could even be harmful.

.....But the IoM has rejected the evidence and said that most people are getting enough of the vitamin from sunlight and diet.

"This review found that information about the health benefits [of vitamin D] beyond bone health were from studies that provided often mixed and inconclusive results and could not be considered reliable," the committee said. They recommend people need 600 international units a day (800 a day over age 70) and warn that doses above 4,000 units a day may be harmful. Vitamin D supplements containing 5,000 units per pill are widely available in the US, and can also be bought in the UK.

"Very high levels of vitamin D (above 10,000 IUs per day) are known to cause kidney and tissue damage. Some preliminary studies offer tentative signals about adverse health effects [at lower levels]", they add.
Quote:
Some of the medical problems adults may experience as a result of prolonged, excessive intake are:

Vitamin D -Loss of appetite. Excessive uri-nation. Nausea and weakness. Weight loss. Hy-pertension. Anemia. Irreversible kidney failure that can lead to death.

Vitamin D Fails Osteoarthritis Test

Supplements Fails to Reduce Pain, Joint Damage in People With Knee OA

In a two-year study, vitamin D supplements failed to reduce pain or slow the progression of joint damage in people with osteoarthritis of the knee, researchers report.

Based on previous research, "I was optimistic," says Timothy McAlindon, MD, MPH, associate professor of medicine in the division of rheumatology at Tufts New England Medical Center in Boston.

"But despite increasing vitamin D in the blood, and even though vitamin D is required for good bone health, the supplementation didn't translate into better outcomes for the people with osteoarthritis," he tells WebMD.
Osteoarthritis, or OA, causes progressive damage to the joint cartilage, the cushioning material at the ends of bones.

Since vitamin D promotes the absorption of calcium and phosphorus needed for building bone, it was theorized that supplements might help people with OA, McAlindon says.

Anecdotal reports and observational studies have had conflicting results, he says.
Quote:
Vitamin D: Does Too Much Incur Worse Pain?

A new study raises questions about the harms versus benefits of high-dose vitamin D supplementation in preventing painful falls and fractures. However, as much as anything, this study is a lesson in how consumers of research need to more closely examine and be more critical of published evidence.

Writing in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), Kerrie Sanders, PhD, and colleagues from the University of Melbourne, Australia, recount a randomized controlled study in which 1,131 women (aged ≥ 70 years) were orally administered a once-yearly dose of 500,000 IU vitamin D3 [Sanders et al. 2010]. An equivalent number of women (n=1,123) received placebo. Contrary to expectations, those receiving vitamin D had a significantly greater incidence of painful falls and bone fractures, compared with the placebo group, and the largest increases occurred within 3 months of dosing.

It had been anticipated that the annual megadose of vitamin D3 would improve patient compliance with the treatment regimen and favorable effects on muscle and bone health would result in reduced falls and fractures. The contrary findings suggest a failure of vitamin D to be of benefit. However, a thoughtful editorial in the same edition of JAMA offers several sensible alternate explanations [Dawson-Hughes and Harris 2010]:

1. One possibility is that such a large single dose of vitamin D3 (500,000 IU) may have triggered natural protective mechanisms within the body to more rapidly metabolized the major active form of vitamin D [that is, calcitriol or 1,25(OH)2D, which is formed from 25(OH)D]. This phenomenon had been observed in animal experiments in which ultra-high dosing (75,000 IU/week) negated the benefits of vitamin D supplementation.

2. A second possibility is that vitamin D supplementation was indeed beneficial in reducing chronic pain, improving physical performance, and elevating mood, which have all been demonstrated in prior research. Consequently, the women in this study may have had increased mobility leading to greater opportunity for falls. Sanders and colleagues did not assess such effects of vitamin D in their study.

3. Third, vitamin D has been shown to benefit the immune system, potentially resulting in fewer common infections such as colds. Women in the vitamin D group may have had less “down time” due to such illness during the course of the study, thereby increasing their opportunity for falls and fractures. Again, this was not examined.

In the study by Sanders et al., most subjects were at the least vitamin D insufficient at baseline [25(OH)D < 30 ng/mL on average]. The 500,000 IU megadose of oral D3 produced more than a 100% spike in 25(OH)D levels at 1 month post-dosing, which quickly decreased by the 2nd month to about 55% above baseline, and further declined during the remaining 10 months to about 30 ng/mL on average (which is an acceptable level). Corresponding to this, however, there was a 31% increase in falls and 53% increase in fractures within the first 3 months, compared with 13% and 18% increases, respectively, after 3 months.

COMMENTS: Sanders and colleagues acknowledge that increased falls and fractures have not been found in numerous other studies using lower-dose and more frequent vitamin D supplementation. They concede that the high serum levels of vitamin D and/or metabolites resulting from megadose administration, with subsequent sharp decreases in those levels, or both, might have been harmful. Furthermore, they note, the short-term spike in 25(OH)D levels found in their study could occur with other high-dose supplementation regimens. Indeed, this is probably the primary and most important message of this study, which, unfortunately, is buried in the report.

The editorial authors similarly note that this study “raises the possibility that infrequent high doses of vitamin D are counterproductive,” which is not to say that vitamin D supplementation is not of value for musculoskeletal health and ameliorating associated painful conditions. Rather, they question the value of the common clinical practice of treating vitamin D-deficient patients with high loading doses of D3 at the outset of repletion (typically 50,000 IU weekly or twice weekly for 6 to 8 weeks).

In fact, there is no way in nature for the human body to acquire such high doses — whether 50,000 or 500,000 IU — at one time, either from sunlight or food sources. And, research has not yet fully revealed how the body might physiologically process and/or benefit from such megadose supplements. Therefore, our prior recommendation of 2,000+ IU D3/day [see full report] or up to 5,000 IU D3/day in some cases [noted in this blogpost] may be a more reasonable and natural, albeit possibly slower-acting, alternative for vitamin D supplementation in those persons who would benefit. However — important caveat here — the long-term effectiveness and safety of vitamin D supplementation is still under investigation, so proper monitoring would be advisable in persons taking such supplements.

Supplement Fallacy #2

Your entire family is vitamin D deficient - even the family dog - and pills will correct it. The deficiency explains all your ill health...and even your bad haircut.

Looking Closer at the Claim

A vitamin D pill is a synthetic hormone made by the drug industry that attempts to mimic an array of “vitamin D hormones” (isomers) produced by nature and the body. Big Pharma cartels BASF and Hoffman La Roche are the largest manufacturers and have disguised the franken-chemical as a vitamin in order to sell it. Promotion rests in “business as usual” for the industry: Instill fear. And they’ve done it with a “deficiency hypothesis” that has everyone regurgitating their “25-hydroxy vitamin D” levels. But it’s as weak as milk toast. Ever wonder who defines our “ideal levels?” (See above)

To date, only statistical associations are used to support the deficiency hypothesis, not causal ones.

This is akin to saying that since everyone who died of a heart attack today had a refrigerator in their home, the likely culprit is Kenmore.

Vitamin D use is also rationalized with the “rickets rational,” insisting that it cured the paralyzing disease, which is prima facie evidence of its healing qualities. Sunshine cured rickets, not vitamin D pills made in the stinky labs of Big Pharma. And, if you think the two are synonymous, you’ve been watching too much Operation Repo.

Highlighting the Vitamin D pill controversy, The New York Times recently wrote that “The excitement about their health potential is still far ahead of the science.” Amen.

In their report, “The Endocrine System,” the University of Colorado, reminded us that, “"Ingestion of milligram quantities of vitamin D over periods of weeks of months can be severely toxic to humans and animals. In fact, baits laced with vitamin D are used very effectively as rodenticides."

This isn’t inexplicable.

Once swallowed, the Franken-chemical can “plug” the body with calcium and induce calcification, which among rodents leads to heart failure. At the very least, it’s a warning that natural sources of vitamin D isomers like sunshine and cod liver oil are a smarter choice over a manmade hormone isolate.

Spending time in the sun is the natural way to get vitamin D, the way good doctors recommend getting it. Also through vitamin rich foods. You can eat yourself to a healthy state but too many suplements can be harmful. A good whole food diet goes a long way.

Yes Cindy too much Vitamin D or too much of any vitamin is bad for you. Too much water can kill you, too much sugar can kill you. Too much medication can kill you or in some cases just the right dosage of medication will kill you (good ol FDA). Too much salt can kill you. Too much caffeine can kill you. Too much of nearly anything can or will kill you, the key word ( which you should be very familiar with) is moderation. LOL

Natural vitamin D doesn't like me much. I get sun poisoning. I got a bad sunburn on the lake, fishing, one year and ever since, if I spend time in the sun, my skin develops brown bumps almost immediately. Sometimes, they are open lesions. I have to wear long sleeves, long pants, closed toed shoes, gloves and a hat when I fish now. I wear cotton gloves with the fingers cut out past the first knuckle so that I can, at least, work with a fishing hook.
I don't have any pictures of me with the gloves on because I always pulled them off before the picture was taken, but in my profile, you can see the shots of me in all my garb, LOL. There's one picture there, where I didn't wear sleeves..............THAT was the year I got burned real bad.

Yet even more evidence that vitamin D is a crucial component of overall health.

'Vitamin D Deficiency Linked to Stiffer Arteries and High Blood Pressure
Even if you're considered generally "healthy," if you're deficient in vitamin D, your arteries are likely stiffer than they should be, and your blood pressure may run higher than recommended due to your blood vessels being unable to relax. That's the conclusion researchers from the Emory/Georgia Tech Predictive Health Institute has reached. Their findings were recently presented at the annual American College of Cardiology meeting in New Orleans.

According to researcher Dr. Al Mheid:

"We found that people with vitamin D deficiency had vascular dysfunction comparable to those with diabetes or hypertension."

That's a truly profound statement!

Unfortunately, the vast majority of people are severely deficient in vitamin D, regardless of race or nationality. In the United States, the late winter average vitamin D is only about 15-18 ng/ml, which is considered a very serious deficiency state. Overall, it's estimated that 85 percent of the American public are deficient, and as much as 95 percent of U.S. senior citizens. "


"Those who took 400 IU's a day did not achieve vitamin D sufficiency while those who took 2,000 IU's a day did, and consequently had a decrease in central arterial stiffness. As demonstrated in this study, there's no doubt that the current daily recommended allowances (RDA) for vitamin D are FAR too low to achieve optimal health benefits! "

Notice the dosage is 2000 IU daily.

Default Re: Sun exposure (vitamin D) kills Cancer cells

I read Dr. Mercola's articles and over the last couple of years have been trying to follow his advice and get out in the sun more and use sunscreen less. But I did go back to sunscreen on my face after getting a couple of sun blotches there.

As far as Vitamin D supplements go, I keep some on hand and take it if I feel like I'm coming down with something. That really does seem to work, but I don't take it all the time, and certainly not mega-doses, just a little bit.

Mercola recommends blood testing for Vitamin D levels anyway before doing long-term supplementation.

Low vitamin D levels may be linked to MS

"WebMD) African-Americans with multiple sclerosis (MS) may be more likely to have low vitamin D levels than African-Americans without the disease.

A new study shows 77% of African-Americans with MS were vitamin D deficient compared with 71% of African-Americans without the disease.

Researchers say much of the difference in vitamin D levels may be explained by variations in climate and geography, but the findings add further evidence to the growing link between vitamin D and multiple sclerosis risk."

As with most substances utilized by the human body, vitamin D levels require a happy medium - the body is full of a variety of equilibriums! You don't need lengthy sun exposure to get the vitamin D to a level required for healthy living.

This is good to know. I sure do get quite a bit of this Vitamin D that the sun has! I sit outside every day for 2 hours and of course I work alot outside in the sun, in the yard and helping my husband with a few farm jobs. Im pretty tan again. One of my neighbors said, "What's this tan all about?" I said, "I sit outside every morning reading my Bible and praying...so anytime you see me this tan, you'll know I have been with Jesus!" :) By the way, my neighbor is not a believer, and she's been asking questions. PRAISE THE LORD!

Low Vitamin D Levels Linked to Advanced Cancers

Oct. 4, 2010 (Miami Beach, Fla.) -- More than three-fourths of people with a variety of cancers have low levels of vitamin D, and the lowest levels are associated with more advanced cancers, a new study suggests.

High-dose supplements increased vitamin D levels to normal in most patients studied, but it is too soon to know if supplementation improved their outlook, says researcher Thomas Churilla, MS, a third-year medical student at Commonwealth Medical College in Scranton, Penn.

Default Re: Sun exposure (vitamin D) kills Cancer cells

Oct. 5, 2011 -- Pale people and the sun just don't mix.

People with pale skin tend to be more prone to sunburns -- and skin cancer. So, they often take steps to avoid the sun and slather on sunscreen when they are exposed to the sun's rays.

As a result, they may make less vitamin D and may benefit from vitamin D supplements, according to a new study in Cancer Causes and Control.

Our bodies make vitamin D, also known as the sunshine vitamin, when we are exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D had become a rock star among vitamins in recent years as deficiency has been linked to brittle bones, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and certain autoimmune diseases.
