Prostate cancer expert, Dr. David Samadi, shares new research on the pros and cons of Vitamin D supplements. High doses of Vitamin D can help prevent colon cancer, and when taken with calcium can reduce risk of osteoporosis and bone fractures. Dr. Samadi also believes supplementing Vitamin D levels can improve heart health. However, no proven benefits link Vitamin D with reduced risk of prostate cancer or breast cancer.

Dr. Samadi recommends 20 minutes of sun per week to maintain Vitamin D levels.

I learned I had prostrate cancer in late May 2010. I am 67 years old, diabetic, and had both TURP surgery and hernia surgery in the past. Being a Jehovah's Witness I was very concerned about the blood issue. Since conventional prostrate surgery is very bloody, it was not an option.
