Vitamin D And Calcium Supplements May Reduce Risk Of Cancer

New study cautions that it may not work for all, potential risk of heart issues

A new study suggests that getting enough vitamin D and calcium is important for preventing cancers. The study is by cancer researcher and dietician at the University of Arizona, Dr Cynthia Thomson.   

Thomson is herself a cancer survivor and is of the view that taking supplements are not without risks including heart issues. Also, cancer can be caused by a variety of factors, many of them as yet unknown. 

Still, a person’s nutrient intake, largely influenced by diet, is believed to reduce cancer risk by 30%.  Dr Thomson’s study was published recently in the ‘Annals of Internal Medicine’. 

The study followed more than 36,280 post-menopausal women who’d been randomly assigned to either take vitamin D and calcium or (unknowingly) a placebo pill instead, for a period of seven years. 

Over time, those supplements seemed to have a small, but measurable effect on reducing cancer deaths. There were significantly fewer breast and colon cancer cases among those who took supplements. 

Calcium and vitamin D are often sold in a combined supplement for bone health.
