One Vitamin D a Day Keeps Cancer at Bay

To all my fellow Canadians, this advice is for you:

he Canadian Cancer Society is recommending that Canadians should take one vitamin D pill of 1,000 international units every day during fall and winter. That's because the sunlight falling on our skin during these six months isn't strong enough to stimulate Vitamin D production in our bodies.

The recommendation is in response to a U.S. study that came out this summer, which reported that taking vitamin D supplements can cut the risk of many different kinds of cancer by a staggering 60 per cent!

So don't forget to take your pills every fall and winter, starting with this year!
