Vitamin D, Calcium and Breast Cancer Risk

Vitamin D, Calcium and Breast Cancer Risk

We know that vitamin D and calcium help fight osteoporosis in women. But now there is news from a major Harvard Medical School study that women who get a lot of vitamin D and calcium throughout their lives may cut the risk of breast cancer by almost third. The study looked at data for more than 10,500 premenopausal women and 21,000 postmenopausal women; they were 45 and older. These women were part of the Women’s Health Study. The study in humans supports prior studies in animals that found an association between calcium and vitamin D and breast cancer.
