Different nutrients, vitamins, and minerals have been studied scientifically to find out their effect on cancer cells. Did you know? Our body contains cancer cells but our gene expression (the environmental factors), and our eating habits can make them proliferate out of sorts. But, luckily, certain nutrients can help halt proliferation of cancer cells.
Cancer being the leading cause of death, Worldwide. It is important to eat a diet that is preventive along with exercise, healthy relationships, and excellent work-life balance. Today, my advice is very important for people who want to live a cancer-free life in general. It is more necessary for people who have darker skin. (like Pakistani, Latin, African American, Indian etc.), and for people where there is little sunlight throughout or is present for limited portion of year.
By now, most of you must have guessed the nutrient, it’s vitamin D. The SUNLIGHT VITAMIN!
Most of us are deficient in it according to the statistics gathered worldwide. I mentioned different races because they all have darker skin pigmentation in common, and usually people with darker skin need more sunlight to make their healthy range of vitamin D.
Since, most of us stay indoors for longer time. It is very obvious that we might be seriously deficient in it.
Or if you take 15 minutes of sunlight? It’s still not enough as it makes only a tiny part of 12 hours of sunlight throughout the day. It makes it perfectly vital, to eat diet that is rich in vitamin D.
Along with making sure to avoid the sun exposed parts of your body alone, don’t use commercial soap or body wash on them, as it can wash down the vitamin D, (because it takes 48 hours for your cells to absorb vitamin D from your skin), and also avoid sun blocks, you can use coconut oil instead. It is natural sunblock, and doesn’t halt vitamin D synthesis.
Research proves that vitamin D is the best prevention against cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. And it’s deficiency is linked with high BP, depression, breast cancer, colon, prostrate,and ovarian cancer, and other diseases.
Adequate amount of vitamin D keeps the balance of the body, and ensure inhibition of cancer growth.
Also vitamin D reduce diabetes type 1 by 80%. It also reduce inflammation, keeps you happy, improves bone health, eases muscles aches, and Fibromyalgia.
