"Will We Ever Find a Cure for Cancer?"

I get asked this question almost every single day. Despite the billions spent on breakthrough drugs and invasive surgical procedures, modern medicine is still no closer to solving this cruel, baffling and epidemic disease than we were when President Nixon declared a war on cancer in 1971.

Unlike the pharmaceutical companies that spend billions to create drugs to address the symptoms after cancer surfaces, we in the natural and alternative medicine world have always focused our attention on understanding how to prevent cancer in the first place.

Vitamin D and its powerful means of short-circuiting cancer is the greatest tool at everyone’s disposal. It is why I always tell everyone to make it as essential as a breath of air to stay alive.

Recently I ran across 18 observations, comments and truths that everyone needs to know about Vitamin D and cancer. Read on and discover the overwhelming evidence between cancer risk and Vitamin D deficiency and what you can do about it.

Vitamin D and Cancer - 18 Things to Know

  1. "Vitamin D suppresses tumor growth and promotes differentiation in colorectal cancer in much the same ways it does in breast and prostate cancer. Normal colon cells have higher vitamin D receptor concentrations than abnormal or cancerous colon cells."

    James Dowd and Diane Stafford, The Vitamin D Cure

  2. "The combination of vitamin D and vitamin A slows prostate cancer cell growth in the lab. Clinical research on activated vitamin D and vitamin D-like molecules in humans shows promise. We know that activated vitamin D alone often slows the growth of prostate tumors, and the different concentrations of vitamin D receptors on cancer cells versus normal prostate cells can help to separate cancer cells from normal cells by growth rates.

    James Dowd and Diane Stafford, The Vitamin D Cure

  3. "D deficiency that plagues 80 percent of the American population. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with depression, prostate cancer, breast cancer, osteoporosis and almost every other degenerative disorder. 'The elderly, who spend little time in the sun and use sunscreen agents frequently, may be at risk for vitamin d deficiency,' according to a statement made by the Mayo Clinic."

    Andreas Moritz, Cancer Is Not A Disease - It's a Survival Mechanism

  4. "Over 42 percent of Americans suffer from vitamin D deficiency, and 47 percent of pregnant women are severely deficient in this important hormone. Their children tend to have weak bones that break easily, even during their childhood years. Many chronic illnesses are due to vitamin D deficiency, including osteoporosis, cancer, and depression. You cannot stop a vitamin D deficiency by taking supplements. Sunlight is the only real remedy. To make sufficient amounts of vitamin D, dark-skinned people need to spend at least two to three times longer in the sun than do Caucasians."

    Andreas Moritz, The Liver and Gallbladder Miracle Cleanse: An All-Natural, At-Home Flush to Purify and Rejuvenate Your Body

  5. "Vitamin D may play an anti-cancer role by slowing cell division. Sunshine is the natural source of vitamin D."

    Dr. Steve Blake, Vitamins and Minerals Demystified

  6. "Vitamin D is crucial for the immune system and may play a role in cancer prevention as well."

    Kenneth W Thomas, Ron Gilbert, Gerd Schaller, Side Effects: The Hidden Agenda of the Pharmaceutical Drug Cartel

  7. "In 2007, Doctor Cedrick Garland and colleagues, using pooled analyses of available research, estimated that maintaining a vitamin D blood level of 55ng/ml could annually prevent 250,000 deaths worldwide, including 60,000 in the USA."

    Marc Sorenson, Solar Power For Optimal Health and volume 2, Vitamin D3 and Solar Power for Optimal Health.

  8. "I even learned that your own body freely generates the best anti-cancer medicine in the world - vitamin D - a nutrient that's been proven to slash breast cancer risk by an astonishing 50 percent, but only if you get some exposure to natural sunlight or consume vitamin D through fish oils and nutritional supplements.

    Mike Adams, Natural Health Solutions

  9. "All African Americans have vitamin D deficiency and they consequently have higher rates of cancer. Slathering on sunscreen is not such a good idea. We've gone too far with sunscreen because we're not getting enough vitamin D. This is a 'coming public health disaster in the US.' Everyone should get a half hour of sunshine a day."

    Stacy Malkan, Not Just a Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of the Beauty Industry

  10. "Research shows that vitamin D has a variety of important benefits besides lowering blood sugar. It seems to protect against eighteen different kinds of cancers, has a significant positive impact on the immune system in fighting colds and flus, viruses, and TB, and protects against rickets and osteoporosis."

    Gabriel Cousens, There Is a Cure for Diabetes: The Tree of Life 21-Day+ Program

  11. "Those not getting sufficient sunshine to meet their vitamin D needs should take a supplement. Vitamin deficiency is epidemic in America, and it contributes not only to the development of osteoporosis but to increased cancer and heart disease as well."

    Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Cholesterol Protection for Life

  12. "On the other hand, lack of sun exposure and subsequent vitamin D deficiency kills more than one million people each year. Comparatively, the risk of being harmed by the sun is minimal. The most dangerous of skin cancers, which is melanoma, usually appears in parts of the skin where the sun does not reach at all, or not reach enough. If you have the opportunity, for optimal protection expose your entire body to the sun, including the private parts."

    Andreas Moritz, Cancer Is Not A Disease - It's A Survival Mechanism

  13. "Now it seems as if every month there is a new study documenting the beneficial effects of sunlight and vitamin D, which, as you know, we get from the sun. For instance, in one of these recent studies, researchers at the Moores Cancer Center at the University of California, San Diego (a very sunny place), concluded that almost 150,000 cases of cancer - particularly colorectal and breast cancer - could be prevented each year by just ten to fifteen minutes a day of exposure to sunlight."

    Frank Lipman, Mollie Doyle, Spent: Revive: Stop Feeling Spent and Feel Great Again

  14. "Numerous other studies have supported this research, showing that modest unprotected exposure to sunlight helps the body produce the vitamin D it needs to keep bones healthy and protect against cancer, including skin cancer. Yes, you read that right. Of course, repeated sunburns - especially in childhood and in very fair-skinned people - have been linked to melanoma. But there is no credible scientific evidence that moderate sun exposure causes skin cancer."

    Frank Lipman, Mollie Doyle, Spent: Revive: Stop Feeling Spent and Feel Great Again

  15. "A study from Finland also confirmed a connection with a deficiency of vitamin D and prostate cancer. People living in northern hemispheres, where the days are dark most of the winter months, could benefit from taking a vitamin D supplement. Don't forget about also taking a whole food supplement to get all your daily requirements of all the essential nutrients."

    Gregory, A. Gore, Defeat Cancer

  16. "The net result is, that not getting enough sunlight lowers your vitamin D and serotonin levels and thereby increases your risk of cancer and many other illnesses. Also be aware that most cosmetics now contain UV-blocking chemicals. These include face creams, makeup products, moisturizers, lotions and anti-wrinkle creams. If you feel you absolutely need a sunscreen product because you are unable to avoid the direct midday sun, make sure it has mostly natural ingredients in them."

    Andreas Moritz, Cancer Is Not A Disease -- It's A Survival Mechanism

  17. "Doses of 1 micro-gram per day of vitamin D have been shown to reduce blood pressure in hypercalcemic patients. Vitamin D may also be effective against cancer. Results of one nineteen-year long study of 1954 Chicago men which showed that an intake of greater than 3.75 micrograms per day of vitamin D was associated with a 50 percent reduction of colorectal cancer."

    Gary Null, Ph.D., Gary Null's Ultimate Anti-Aging Program

  18. "We know that the skin needs vitamin D, which is produced in response to sunshine. We also know that the skin needs vitamin A. But today man's body has become so degenerated, so filled with mucus, acid toxins, and mineral and vitamin deficiencies that he can't spend a great amount of time in the sunshine. There are many people who develop all kinds of skin conditions from exposure to the sun and then falsely put the blame on sunshine. The sun pulls out the impurities below the skin - trying to purify you. Skin cancers spring from toxic cells."

    Patricia Bragg and Paul C. Bragg, The Miracle of Fasting: Proven Throughout History for Physical, Mental & Spiritual Rejuvenation

Along with today’s 18 observations and conclusions from some of the most respected names in the world of alternative medicine, you have irrefutable evidence of the necessity for vitamin D.

Normally we can get all of the vitamin D we need from the sun. Just 15 minutes of mid-day sunshine on bare skin and the body can convert as much as 15,000 units (iu's) of vitamin D. But from early Oct through early April, the sun is too low to provide sufficient UV rays for the body to generate vitamin D. (Is this why colds and flu are rampant in winter months? Think about it...)

If you are not supplementing your diet with Vitamin D, I urge you to start doing so immediately!

Ultra D3 - the Name Says It All!

For the past 15 years we've been recommending people to increase their vitamin D intake from the paltry RDA of 400-600 iu's per day to a minimum of 5,000 iu's per day with terrific results. (I personally take 10,000 iu's or more daily.)

Years ago, when we couldn't find a high dosage vitamin D formula, we created our own called Ultra D3. But this isn't any old vitamin D product you'll find on the grocery store or Wal-Mart shelf.

Ultra D3 - Ultra powerful vitamin D formulationUltra D3 combines high-dosage vitamin D3 with vitamin K2, which is vital for strong bones and clean arteries, along with essential minerals and antioxidants to supercharge the body's utilization of vitamin D

In my view, Ultra D3 truly is The Most Powerful Vitamin D-3 formula available anywhere in the World.
