Vitamin D and Lower LDL Cholesterol,

New Studies Show Optimizing Vitamin D Levels May Double Chances of Surviving Breast Cancer, Lower LDL Cholesterol, and Helps Prevent Autism

A recent meta-analysis found that breast cancer patients who had high vitamin D levels (average 30 ng/ml) were twice as likely to survive compared to women with low levels (average 17 ng/ml)
Vitamin D has a number of anticancer effects, including the promotion of cancer cell death, and the inhibition of angiogenesis (the growth of blood vessels that feed a tumor)
Previous research has shown that a vitamin D level of 50 ng/ml is associated with a 50 percent lower risk of breast cancer
Recent research found that vitamin D in combination with calcium appears to reduce LDL cholesterol levels in postmenopausal women
Vitamin D deficiency may cause autistic behavior through its effects on the brain hormones serotonin, oxytocin, and vasopressin, all of which are associated with social behavior
