About 50-63,000 of the annual cancer deaths in the U.S. couldhave been prevented if those who died had sufficient vitamin D and solar UVBirradiance.
Vitamin D and UVB irradiance prevents or ameliorates bone diseases,muscle pain, multiple sclerosis, high blood pressure and many other conditionsvery successfully.
There were conferences held in the U.S. in order to review theevidence that relates to the various health advantages of vitamin D and the newrecommended levels of vitamin D intake definitely must be defined.
Furtheremphasis on maintaining optimal health and treatment of various diseases andconditions that are possible by sufficient vitamin D intake and UVB irradiancemust be provided. Additional food fortified with extra vitamin D should beingested and the urge for the increase of vitamin D guidelines is mandatory.
An analysis has shown that improved vitamin D status canlead to a number of cases where lives were saved and important economic savings mayalso result. It has also shown that the decrease of risk of many important cancers can be provided by vitamin D ingestion and daily activities in sunlight. A strategy forreduction of cancer risk based on vitamin D ingestion would show significantbenefits and a little to no risk at all of skin cancer.
Vitamin D is needed for optimal health in general and UVBirradiance is a very important source of vitamin D. The combination of bothreduces risk for so many different types of cancer, fractures associated withosteoporosis, multiple sclerosis and a large number of many other diseases andconditions.
However, one should take precautions because too much exposure to UVradiance can lead to cataracts, melanoma and even skin cancer. Various ecologicstudies estimate the number of prevented or delayed occurrences of cancer,multiple sclerosis and cataract.
Results used from estimates of diseases associated with toomuch UV irradiation, cancer estimated and fractures caused by osteoporosis showall the economic burdens of not being exposed to enough UVB irradiation and notingesting enough vitamin D. Around 50 million people in the U.S. die of cancerevery year because of insufficient levels of ingested vitamin D.
Insufficiency of vitamin D caused by not receiving enough UVBirradiance, a poor diet and not enough vitamin D supplements present inpeople’s diets caused an economic burden of 4,056 billion dollars in 2004.
The economicburden of too much UV radiance was somewhere around 67 billion dollars. UVBirradiance could greatly reduce the health care burden in the U.S. and all other countries as well.
