Scientists at Harvard Medical School’s Brigham & Weemens Clinical Hospital have discovered a new property of vitamin D. This is reported in a study published in the journal JAMA Network Open.
Experts conducted an experiment in which they observed 25 thousand healthy patients for five years, including men over 50 and women over 55.
The study participants were divided into four groups. The first was taking a vitamin D and omega-3 supplement, the second was taking vitamin D in combination with a placebo, the third was limited to an omega-3, and the fourth was a placebo. At the same time, patients had to cut their intake of vitamin D and fatty acids to 800 units per day.
The study found that supplementation did not appear to have any effect on cancer risk, but those who consumed vitamin D had lower mortality rates in the later stages. Thus, it turned out that vitamin D is able to reduce the risk of cancer.
