Researchers find link between vitamin D and bladder cancer

Posted on November 2nd, 2012 No Comments

Researchers from Spain’s National Cancer Research Center have discovered what they believe to be a relationship between bladder cancer and vitamin D. Their research indicates that high levels of vitamin D can lead to a decreased risk of bladder cancer while a deficiency in the vitamin can actually increase a person’ s risk of the disease.

The researchers took blood samples from more than 2,000 people, some living with bladder cancer and some without. They measured the concentration of 25(OH)D3, a form of vitamin D that is stable in blood, in the samples and found that the people who had the most vitamin D were also the ones who were least at risk for bladder cancer.

Vitamin D can be found in many foods and is actually produced by the body when it exposed to sunlight.

Aside from a vitamin D deficiency, factors that can increase a person’s risk of developing bladder cancer include smoking and the diabetes drug Actos. If you have taken Actos as directed and developed bladder cancer, the two might be related.
