The Doctors Health Press, a publisher of various natural health newsletters, books and reports, including the popular online Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin, is reporting on a clinical trial linking Vitamin D deficiency and an increased risk of 100 diseases.

As reported in Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin on Monday, April 23, 2012 (http://www.doctorshealthpress.com/general-health-2/missing-this-vitamin-exposes-you-to-100-diseases), researchers noted that vitamin D deficiency is associated with an increased risk for approximately 100 conditions and diseases. They conducted a search of all studies that showed how vitamin-D concentration affects disease incidence and mortality rates.

Their findings for breast and colorectal cancer, respiratory infections, and all-cause mortality rates indicate that benefits increase as serum vitamin-D concentrations increase.

The Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin article reports that the main sources of vitamin D that can help people reach adequate levels are UV-B irradiance (sunlight) and vitamin-D(3) supplements. For those who opt for sun exposure as the main source of vitamin D, be aware that, in general, studies find melanoma risk is low, while risk of non-melanoma skin cancer is higher. Such cancers, the researchers say, are seldom fatal.

The Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin article also reports that as much as three-quarters of Americans are likely to be deficient in vitamin D.
