A recent study conducted by the University of Eastern Finland and Kuopio University Hospital, which was published in Melanoma Research, found that regular users of vitamin D supplements had fewer cases of melanoma and a considerably lower risk of skin cancer than non-users.

The study included nearly 500 participants who were identified as having an increased risk of skin cancer.

Vitamin D is essential for proper human body functioning and may also be linked to various diseases.

The relationship between Vitamin D and skin cancers has been extensively researched in the past, yet these studies have mainly probed serum levels of calcidiol, a metabolite of Vitamin D, in relation to skin cancers.

The conclusions drawn from such studies have been inconclusive at times and even contradictory, as serum calcidiol levels have been associated with both a slightly higher and lower risk for different types of skin cancer.

This may be partly attributed to the fact that serum calcidiol analyses do not provide insights into the metabolism of Vitamin D within human skin which can express enzymes capable of generating active vitamin D metabolites or deactivating them.

In an effort to explore this further, the North Savo Skin Cancer Programme conducted a new study which recruited 498 adult patients who were deemed to be at greater risk for certain types of skin cancer (such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma or melanoma) from the dermatological outpatient clinic at Kuopio University Hospital.

The study found that regular users of Vitamin D had considerably fewer cases of melanoma than non-users and that their skin cancer risk classification was also better.

Logistic regression analysis showed that the risk for melanoma among regular users was significantly reduced, more than halved, compared to non-users.

These findings suggest that even occasional users may have a lower risk of developing melanoma than non-users.

Serum calcidiol levels were not associated with any changes in the skin such as photoaging, facial photoaging, actinic keratoses, nevus count, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.

Although this research design was cross-sectional and unable to demonstrate a causal relationship between Vitamin D use and these skin conditions, other studies have provided evidence supporting the benefits of Vitamin D in reducing aggressive forms of melanoma.

“These earlier studies back our new findings from the North Savo region here in Finland. However, the question about the optimal dose of oral vitamin D in order to for it to have beneficial effects remains to be answered. Until we know more, national intake recommendations should be followed,” Professor of Dermatology and Allergology Ilkka Harvima of the University of Eastern Finland notes.

“For this reason, too, it is worth paying attention to sufficient intake of vitamin D in the population in this region,” Harvima concludes.

  • The government has no right to impose sanctions on cattle owners who refuse to inject their animals with mRNA vaccines. In humans this causes sudden death syndrome. Injecting cattle sounds like bill gates wanting to kill the cows and depopulate the country
