How can we level the playing field for all?
Two studies we have been intimately involved with have shown that vitamin D levels, in the recommended range of 40-60 ng/ml (100-150 nmol/L), have all but eliminated the idea of racial disparity. These studies have both been on pregnant women.
Our data show a full 80% lower risk if you get the serum level up to at least 60 ng/ml. (We will be publishing this soon.)
It's TIME! It's PAST TIME! Whether people are white or black, dark or light, vitamin D in the range of at least 40-60 ng/ml (100-150 nmol/L) is a key part of the answer to reducing the incidence of many cancers, of preterm births, of other health problems. It is clear that the darker the skin, the lower the average serum level, quite simply because most people are still getting their vitamin D from the sun--and, the darker the skin, the longer it takes to get enough from sun exposure.
We found in our studies that blacks, as a whole, were much more deficient in vitamin D and that once they supplemented to get within the recommended range, they had the same disease rates as whites of the same vitamin D level.
Yes, there are other factors involved, but at least START HERE!
We would love to add more black women to our Breast Cancer Prevention Project. What does it take? Dedicated people like yourself to
donate a little today
. This money will be used to add 1,000 women in the lower socioeconomic strata to our study group. This will not only help the one woman you are sponsoring, it will increase awareness on this connection between vitamin D and a cancer-free life for all.
