Sun Bathe to Prevent Breast Cancer?

Since it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought I would tell you about a recent and interesting study on the disease. A research team found that increased exposure to sunlight, which increases levels of vitamin D in the body, may decrease the risk of advanced breast cancer. Although researchers have not yet determined why this is so, it appears that vitamin D may play a significant role in slowing the growth of breast cancer cells.

This does not mean you should start laying out to work on your "tan." Skin cancer is still a serious issue. You should, however, look for vitamin D in food sources like fatty fish as well as fortified milk products, cereal and fruit juices. You can also find vitamin D in many multivitamins as well.
