Eating Foods Packed With Vitamin D Could Lower Risks of Cancer, Study Reveals

Cancer is still a major cause for concern as it has continued to cause more harm than good by contributing to a number of deaths worldwide.

According to recent statistics conducted by health specialists, the total number of death recorded in 2018 was 9.6 million with stomach, liver, bowel and lung cancer accounting for more deaths.

When it comes to cancer, depending on your lifestyle, you may end being victimised by the disease. Generally poor lifestyle has negative effects on your body as it causes the formation of radicals which are cancerous in nature.

The compounds found in most substances we eat are said to contain carcinogens that destroy the genetic material, DNA and hinder our cells from repairing the damage.

Organic foods are said to be important to people who are vulnerable to cancer. According to Gastroenterology journal, eating reasonable amount of vitamin D may lower your risks of developing colorectal cancer.

In a study conducted by researchers on around 95,000 women, they were able to ascertain that those with higher amount of the nutrients, particularly from dairy products, had 50% lower risks of acquiring the cancer than those who didn't incorporate vitamin D giving foods to their diet.

In their reports, the researchers further noted that cases of colerectal have been decreasing with every passing year which clearly shows that people have been observing a healthy lifestyle by including vitamin D foods to their daily diets.

Diet has been identified as the leading cause of this deadly malady. Failing to consume more fruits like apples, oranges, banana and other foods endowed with vitamin D may only predispose you to the disease.

Perfect examples of foods that highly packed with vitamin D include but not limited to oily fish, red meat, liver, egg yolks, fortified foods such as breakfast cereals, orange juice, mushrooms and fortified yoghurt.
