The Higher the Vitamin D Levels, the Better the Outcome!
One example with vitamin D and pancreatic cancer - Chen Yuan and colleagues from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston examined survival among 493 patients from five clinical study groups in the US who were diagnosed with pancreatic cancer from 1984 to 2008. Higher vitamin D levels in the patient's blood before the cancer diagnosis were associated with higher survival rates according to a study published online June 20 in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
"We observed longer overall survival in patients with pancreatic cancer who had sufficient prediagnostic 25(OH)D," the authors write.

New Cancer Therapy:
Journal of Clinical Oncology, Vol 34,
No 15_suppl (May 20 Supplement), 2016
Researchers at the University of Texas San Antonio have developed a way to kill cancer cells using ultraviolet light. They used the technique on one of the most aggressive cancers: triple negative breast cancer. This type of cancer is also one of the most difficult to treat. The new technique may also help cancer patients with hard-to-reach or inoperable malignant tumors.
The therapy involves injecting a chemical directly into the tumor, then shining a UV light on the tumor. This causes the tumor cells to become highly acidic and die. In just two hours, up to 95 percent of the cancer cells can be eradicated.
Unlike chemotherapy which affects all of the body's cells, this technique targets only the tumor making it a very precise therapy. The researchers hope that this noninvasive cancer therapy will help doctors get rid of the most challenging tumors such as ones located in the spine, brain stem, and aorta.

How Many Must Die Before Vitamin D Science Is Recognized? Vitamin D Deficiency Linked to Breast Cancer.
From Articles by Dr. Mercola

Vitamin D deficiency contributes to hundreds of common health problems.
There are over 33,800 medical papers with vitamin D in the title or abstract. Such research has shown that vitamin D can improve:
Type 1 and 2 diabetes
Heart disease and stroke
Autism, Alzheimer's, and other brain dysfunction
Bacterial and viral infections
Depression and Pain
Correcting your vitamin D deficiency may cut your risk of dying from any cause by 50 percent, according to one analysis.
Vitamin D is not a vitamin. It's actually a potent steroidal hormone, which helps explain some of its health impacts.
The benefits of UVB exposure from the sun or artificial light include synthesizing vitamin D and the production of nitric oxide—a compound that lowers your blood pressure.
Recent research shows that UV abstinence is actually as dangerous as smoking when it comes to cancer and overall mortality risks.
