I started this Blog after being diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in 2010. I thought I was going to die! It was a way of keeping family and friends informed but then became a campaigning tool, helping to make improvements in hospitals nationally. 11 years on, after successful surgery, my PSA is still undetectable. I'm not continuing to Blog about prostate cancer, I'm hoping to leave it in the past, but this blog contains a great archive of information.
Supplements are usually a great thing for everyone, especially for patients with specific diseases such as prostate cancer. Not all supplements are right for every person since each patient, disease, and individual are different, but vitamin D tends to bring benefit to whoever takes it.
Vitamin D is one of the easiest vitamins we can get access to, and for free since it comes from the sun. But even when the sun shines, some places in the world have less access to it than others, which can explain why in some places, prostate cancer develops more often than in others. To understand better the benefits of vitamin D, watch this video shared by the Prostate Cancer Research Institute, where you can listen to Dr. Charles Myers, a medical oncologist and prostate cancer patient, talk about the use of vitamin D, how patients can benefit from it and how its deficiency can worsen patients’ health condition.
