Vitamin D and Prostate


Vitamin D status is inversely associated with prostate cancer risk, according to a study from the Epidemiology and Statistics Research Center in Paris, France. Vitamin D status was assessed in a group of 129 men diagnosed with prostate cancer and 167 matched healthy controls. Results showed that as vitamin D status increased, the risk for prostate cancer decreased. No association was noted with parathyroid hormone (PTH) concentrations.
