Having compiled and processed a large amount of data from two random clinical trials, a group of researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, has suggested that those females with high levels of Vitamin D stand at lower risks of breast cancer. Medical data from as many as 3,325 participants of indifferent clinical trials and 1,713 prospective study participants was examined for the correlation between breast cancer and serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D, which is considered as the primary form of Vitamin D in human blood.

All women under study were over the age of 55, with the average age being 63. And, the data collection from the period of 2002 to 2017. The study rigorously examined these subjects for the four year period from they were free from cancer and their Vitamin D concentration. Over the period of the study, as many as 77 fresh cases of this specific form of cancer were tested, and it was detected that 60 nanograms per milliliter of 25(OH)D in the blood plasma was the minimum healthy level, much greater than 20 ng/ml that was suggested by the National Academy of Medicine back of 2010.

A number of healthcare organizations including GrassrootsHealth have urged the federal government organizations for greater Vitamin D serum level. Now, this study has added to the hot debates that have gained momentum in the recent past. The results of this were adjusted according to subject’s body mass index, age, intake of calcium, and cigarette smoking. Further research has been suggested to determine if Vitamin D levels can also help in preventing premenopausal breast cancer.
