Recently in NZ it was announced that NZ has a 20-30% higher incidence and mortality due to CRC compared to Australia. The reason given was because of better early detection in Australia. Using this as a call for a National Screening Program.
There was no mention of vitamin D! The incidence of vitamin D deficiency in NZ (if you define a deficiency as less than 40ng/ml) is higher in NZ than in Australia. Just another association? I doubt it but that is the official line. Of course in NZ, normal (statistical or healthy?) blood level of 25(OH)D is 20ng/ml.
It is great to see studies like this one. I look forward to more. They are good ammo.
