Esophageal cancerPrevention

There does not exist a serum 25(OH)D level-esophageal cancer incidence curve.

However, based on what is known about solar UVB doses and esophageal cancer mortality rates from ecological studies and serum 25(OH)D-incidence relations for breast and colorectal cancer, it appears that maintaining serum 25(OH)D levels above 40 ng/mL (100 nmol/L) might reduce the risk of esophageal cancer by 25-35%.
