A novel study suggests that inflammation may be the underlying connection between vitamin D status and prostate cancer.
Closer look: Researchers discover evidence for a new mechanism behind vitamin D’s role in treating multiple sclerosis
New research uncovers a potential mechanism by which vitamin D affects multiple sclerosis patients.
A randomized controlled trial published in Multidisciplinary Respiratory Medicine has found that vitamin D supplementation may help turn on certain genes in alveolar macrophages.
When the human genome project mapped its first chromosome in 1999, scientists predicted the human genome would contain over 100,000 active genes.
A recent study by Dror et al raised some questions about higher levels of vitamin D. Dr Cannell takes a look at the study and its merits.
We know that vitamin D controls up to 5% of the human genome. Researchers recently looked at a large number of genes before and after vitamin D supplementation.
Dr Cannell reviews a paper covering the influence vitamin D has on DNA repair genes and its role in repairing DNA “double stranded breaks.”
Scientists have identified how vitamin D may help the body clear the brain of plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
