Harvard University says Vitamin D3 = Anti-Cancer

New research out today is stunning:

"... Dr. Edward Giovannucci, a Harvard University professor of medicine and nutrition who laid out his case in a keynote lecture at a recent American Association for Cancer Research meeting in Anaheim, Calif.-
"I would challenge anyone to find an area or nutrient or any factor that has such consistent anti-cancer benefits as vitamin D," Giovannucci told the cancer scientists. "The data are really quite remarkable.""

Another quote:

"The talk so impressed the American Cancer Society's chief epidemiologist, Dr. Michael Thun, that the society is reviewing its sun protection guidelines. "There is now intriguing evidence that vitamin D may have a role in the prevention as well as treatment of certain cancers," Thun said."

Wow.

If you are not reading my blog, you probably have no idea about this ground-breaking research. Please, pass this URL to your friends and anybody that you care about: RelentlessImprovement.Blogspot.com and tell them to read it every day.

The article goes on to say-

"Supplements contain the nutrient, but most use an old form - D-2 - that is far less potent than the more desirable D-3. Multivitamins typically contain only small amounts of D-2 and include vitamin A, which offsets many of D's benefits."

This is the reason I specialize in Advanced Orthomolecular Research brand products. Both Ortho-Core and Essential Mix have very low Vitamin A (only 500 IU), and use the D-3 form of Vitamin D at a perfect 1000 IU dose. How much A and D-3 is your supplement giving you? You better run, not walk, and look.

Formulation by professionals in ratios dictated beneficial by the latest research.

AOR broke from the pack early on by recognizing that too much Vitamin A can have deleterious effects on bones and absorption of D-3
