Calcium and Vitamin D supplements reduce melanoma risk
Taking Vitamin D and calcium did not change the risk of melanoma in a large group (32,282) of women studied by Stanford University researchers. But, women who had already had skin cancers like squamous cell or basal cell carcinoma, but not melanoma, developed 57 % fewer melanomas than women with similar histories who did not take the supplements over a period of seven years of follow up.
If you had had a skin cancer, would you be willing to take Vitamin D and calcium if it might reduce the chances of you developing a melanoma? Let me hear from you!
