I have no history of cancer; I have not taken Lemtrada. But I am curious about a possible vitamin D deficiency connection to cancer and to MS.

In view of your history with breast cancer, have you had a vitamin D test (25-hydroxy D test)? The California-based GrassrootsHealth (http://www.GrassrootsHealth.net) has found a connection between cancer and low vitamin D.

Dr. Cedric Garland - Does Vitamin D Prevent Cancer interview by Carole Baggerly (11 min.):


Garland: Breast cancer, for example, is a vitamin D deficiency; it happens that it is also true of colon cancer, it happens that it is also true of pancreatic cancer. And it's largely true of ovarian cancer, cancer of the brain; it's true with adult leukemia, bladder cancer, and it's true of cancer of the kidney.

@4:08 What about those people, who have the misfortune of already either having or having had cancer, is it of any benefit then?
It is of striking benefit. We've just had a paper accepted that shows that…

The Brazilian neurologist Dr. Cicero Galli Coimbra suspects "vitamin D resistance" in MS; read through the Coimbra High-Dose Vitamin D Protocol sub forum here: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/coimbra-h ... tocol-f57/
