    Default Vitamin D Supplementation: Posssibe Gain In Life Years Combined With Cost Savings

    German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, DKFZ)
    February 10 2021

    In recent years, three meta-analyses of clinical studies have come to the conclusion that vitamin D supplementation was associated with a reduction in the mortality rate from cancer of around 13 percent. Scientists at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) have now transferred these results to the situation in Germany and calculated: If all Germans over the age of 50 were to take vitamin D supplements, up to 30,000 cancer deaths per year could possibly be avoided and more than 300,000 years of life could be gained -- in addition, health care costs could be saved.

    This is no surprise. What's surprising is that so many Americans are unaware of how vitamin D deficient they are. There's an assumption that if you have your lunch outdoors with sun shining on your face and arms, you're catching all the rays you need. Not even close! Check out the vitamin D forum on how to sunbathe the right way, and/or supplement with vitamin D and its cofactors.
