THIS Vitamin Can Stop Cancer Cell Growth, And We Need MUCH MORE Than Doctors Think
In the year 2015, there will be 1,658,370 new diagnoses of cancer in the United States alone. That’s a sobering statistic, especially when you consider that those are just new cases not including existing ones. While medical researchers still won’t claim that they have found a cure to cancer, they may have come pretty close with the newest discovery about an important essential vitamin.
Nearly 70% of American children do not get enough vitamin D and roughly 75% of U.S. adults don’t get enough of the “so-called ‘sunshine vitamin’.” This vitamin might not be so important if it weren’t for its role in preventing nearly every ailment from cancer to heart disease and even diabetes. An adequate daily amount of the nutrient is a healthy contributor to general health and increasing one’s intake may even be the missing link to the cure for cancer.
One of the biggest issues tying cancer to vitamin D deficiency is that too few people actually know how to determine if they are lacking the vitamin. While the only way to confirm a vitamin D deficiency is a blood test, there are many signs that an individual may be lacking the vitamin. Common indicators of vitamin D deficiency include:
• Depression or feeling “blue” – Serotonin is the brain hormone associated with mood elevation, which rises when light exposure increases and falls when sun exposure decreases. Individuals with the lowest levels of vitamin D are nearly 11 times more likely to be depressed.
• Bone pain
• Muscle weakness
• Severe asthma, especially in children
• Cognitive impairment, particularly in older adults
• Excessive sweating – Sweating that appears with no physical exertion or elevated temperature is a common indicator of low vitamin D levels.
• Chronic pain
