Question: from Brenda
In your Total-Balance product, does it contain enough naturally compounded vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) to prevent cancer? If not, which brand should I get the Vitamin D3 to prevent cancer? I learned recently that enough Vitamin D is the key to prevent cancers.
Recently there has been quite a lot of publicity extolling high dose Vitamin D as a ‘cancer prevention’ protocol. There is no doubt that Vitamin D is a factor in helping prevent cancer, but it has to be put into perspective.
The sad fact is that a high proportion of the general population is deficient in Vitamin D and that is without doubt a factor in contributing to an increased risk of cancer. In other words it is not a matter of taking mega doses of Vitamin D but rather ensuring that you don’t have a deficiency. Remember that most cancers are due to a nutrient deficiency!
It just so happens that lately the focus has been on Vitamin D. The same ‘principles’ could apply to folic acid, or maybe zinc or any one of a multitude of other nutrients. The reality is that if you have a deficiency in any of a broad array of nutrients then you are at risk for contracting cancer.
