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. In February, the U.S. Department of Health Task Force will release official recommendations about Vitamin D supplements for patients with deficient Vitamin D levels. Dr. Samadi recommends 20 minutes of sun per week to maintain Vitamin D levels.
