Skin Cancer risk

pillsLadies… are you taking vitamin D supplements to assist with calcium absorption to prevent osteoporosis?  Well, so am I…  and guess what a new study reveals – Higher levels of vitamin D, still within the normal range, are associated with an increased risk of non-melanoma skin cancer.

Does this mean I will stop?  Probably not, but I see a blinking yellow light now….

Here’s the full article.  The study is not conclusive, and even contradictory to others.

Balance is key.  Don’t overdose on D, just like you wouldn’t on any other vitamin.
