New meta-analysis reveals high vitamin D status reduces risk of colorectal cancer and type II diabetes

A recent meta-analysis found that vitamin D levels of 55 ng/ml and 65 ng/ml are associated with the lowest risk for colorectal cancer and type II diabetes (T2D), respectively.

The optimal vitamin D status has caused a debate among nutritionists, health professionals and researchers. The Food and Nutrition Board (FNB) states that levels between 0-11 ng/ml are deficient; whereas, the Endocrine Society defines deficiency as levels between 0-20 ng/ml. (The Vitamin D Council believes levels between 0-30 ng/ml are deficient.)

Maybe there isn’t enough info yet but knowing reasons would help. Also although not within the scope of this article, there is the controversial issue of higher Vit D levels and decreasing the inflammation in Multiple Sclerosis. So if a patient takes more Vit. supplementation of Vit d3 for MS and levels are higher than 60 even a lot higher, does that mean that that patient is at more risk for colon ca?
