New Delhi, Jun 16 (ANI): You may want to start consuming vitamin D-rich diet, as according to a recent study, doing so can cut your breast cancer risk. Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine suggested that higher levels of vitamin D were associated with decreasing risk of breast cancer. The scientists pooled data from two randomized clinical trials with 3,325 combined participants and a prospective study involving 1,713 participants to examine the association between risk of female breast cancer and a broad range of serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) concentrations, which was chosen as the marker because it is the main form of vitamin D in blood.
