Clues to preventing cancers

For many years Integrated Medicine has known that many factors play into creating cancerous conditions in the body. Some of

Vitamin D3

these include, but are not limited to eating foods that create an acidic condition in the body like meats, milk products, processed foods and sugar. Anything that changes the pH to acidic from the normal alkaline can create a breeding grounds for cell/DNA changes including long lasting deep seated repressed emotions.

Now Cedric Garland, DrPH, professor of family and preventive medicine at the UC San Diego School of Medicine, and his research team explain that with enough vitamin D and calcium present, cells adhere to one another in tissue and act as normal, mature epithelial cells. If there is a deficiency of vitamin D, cells can lose their sticking ability as well as their identity as differentiated cells. When this happens, they may revert to a dangerous stem cell-like state and become cancerous.

In 2008, Dr. Garland and his colleagues found an association between a lack of sunlight exposure, low vitamin D and breast cancer. In earlier work, they showed linkages between increased levels of vitamin D3 or markers of vitamin D and a lower risk for breast, colon, ovarian and kidney cancers, too
