Vitamin D, breast cancer risk -17% working in the sun

Vitamin D, working in the sun reduces breast cancer risk by 17%

A recent study would have highlighted the correlation between the absence of vitamin D with the possibility of developing breast cancer.

A recent Danish study would have pointed out a probable correlation between breast cancer and work outdoors, according to the researchers sole it would reduce the likelihood of developing the tumor. A condition facilitated by a greater absorption of vitamin D triggered by sunlight.

Although the study did not verify in detail i vitamin values, the possible integration of a diet and the risks associated with breast cancer, however, suggested a strong link.

The team rated 38375 Danish women under the age of 70 who had been diagnosed with primary breast cancer, comparing them to five randomly drawn women, born in the same year and in the same state. The study focused in particular on the type of work performed and on the possible presence of a correlation between the profession, sun exposure and the presence of disease.

By obtaining a significant figure, that is, the professions practiced outside guaranteed a lower probability of developing cancer, equal to 17% and the possibility of reducing risks after the age of 50. As confirmed also to Julie Elbæk Pedersen, author of the study at the Danish Cancer Society.

Smart working all’aperto

There is a direct correlation between lower vitamin D production and the typology of current professions in recent decades Office work it increased exponentially by reducing that outdoors. Thus favoring a real deficiency of vitamin D capable of affecting large sections of the population globally, with a negative impact on salute.

Vitamin D is a precious presence for the well-being of bones, is able to fight infections and production is facilitated by exposure to the sun, especially during the first part of the day.

It is no coincidence that a lower absorption of sunrays or a lower presence of the vitamin would be related to the possibility of developing breast cancer, as shown by the increasing percentages in recent years. Not only because poor sun exposure would favor an increase in mortality from cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, hypertension and some cancers.

Vitamin D and Covid-19

Some recent studies would also highlight a further link between the absence of vitamin D and the Covid-19, the former seems to be able to play an important role in protecting against the infection itself. It is no coincidence that in the United Kingdom, the proposal to distribute vitamin D supplements has been made, so as to follow the example already carried out by Spain. A condition still to be confirmed and verified but which seems to underline a decrease in deaths in Spain itself due to the Coronavirus.
