JULY 28: PROSTABLOG NZ: When you go out into the sun and get all that beneficial Vitamin D on your skin – don’t go home and wash it off in the shower, says top NZ immunology scientist Dr Richard Forster.
Dr Forster – who is working with eminent colleague Dr Jim Watson on treatment for advanced prostate cancer that harnesses the body’s immune system – says lack of Vitamin D (from the sun) is linked to prostate cancer.
Men have more chance of contracting the disease the further away they live from the Equator.
We must get some sun exposure every day, if we can manage it, and ensure we don’t wash it off before the Vitamin D is absorbed, he told the Prostate Cancer Foundation of NZ annual conference in Napier last weekend. Absorption takes time.
Watch this website for a full report soon of what the two scientists say about avoiding and treating prostate cancer.

MAY 23: SCIENCE BLOG: In studying the preventive effects of vitamin D, University of California researchers have proposed a new model of cancer development that hinges on a loss of cancer cells’ ability to stick together. The model, dubbed DINOMIT, differs substantially from the current model of cancer development, which suggests genetic mutations as the earliest driving forces behind cancer. READ MORE>
