Reduce skin-cancer recurrence by 57% with two common nutrients

The two most common skin cancers are basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. These cancers are rarely life-threatening. But if you’ve ever had one of these, you’re at a significantly higher risk of developing melanoma. And melanoma can be life-threatening. Fortunately, there’s an inexpensive nutrient combination that can reduce your risk of melanoma by over 50%.

Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine looked at data from the Women’s Health Initiative. This massive study followed 36,282 postmenopausal women. These women took either a placebo or a combination of vitamin D (400 IU) and calcium (1,000 mg) every day for seven years.

The researchers made a potentially life-saving discovery for anyone with a history of skin cancer. They discovered that women with a history of non-melanoma skin cancer developed 57% fewer melanomas than those who took the placebo. That’s a huge difference!

Ironically, the best source of vitamin D is from the sun. But isn’t the sun a major cause of skin cancer? Perhaps with overexposure. The sun is your friend if you can spend time outdoors in moderation. It can actually help you prevent skin cancer, as long as you don’t let it burn.

Even though the sun is the best source of vitamin D, deficiency is common even among those who spend a lot of time outdoors. So most doctors recommend taking plenty of vitamin D. How much is plenty? The medical community now realizes that 400 IU (the amount used in this study) isn’t enough. Most people need 5,000 IU or more. You can order a tablet with this dosage by following this link.

As for calcium, this study says you need to take 1,000 mg. But most people don’t need to take more than 500 mg in supplement form. You can get the rest from a diet rich in fruits and vegetables.
