[Best Syndication] A study found that calcium with vitamin D reduced cancer risk by at least 60 percent. The study was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

A four-year clinical trial of 1,000 women over the age of 55 was divided into three groups. One group took calcium (1400-1500mg) plus vitamin D (1100 IU vitamin D) supplements. The second group took calcium only (1400-1500 mg). The third group took a placebo.

Cancer risks dropped the most for women that took the calcium with vitamin D, with a 60 percent risk reduction for developing cancer when comparing against the placebo group. The group that took only calcium showed a 47 percent reduction in cancer risk compare to the placebo group.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This maxim applies to people who receive radiation therapy for cancers of the gastrointestinal tract as well as the head and neck area.

Unlike chemotherapy, which is distributed throughout the entire body, radiation therapy is a local treatment, meaning that it affects only the area of the body being treated. In people who are treated to the head and neck area, side effects include mouth sores and a sore throat. In those who undergo radiation therapy to the gastrointestinal tract, side effects can include nausea, diarrhea, and inflammation of the esophagus, the tube that connects the mouth to the stomach. Consequently, these people can incur difficulties in swallowing food and/or holding it down. This can lead to weight loss and malnutrition.

Researchers from the Rutgers University and the U.S. Department of Agriculture found a blueberry compound called pterostilbene may prevent colon cancer. These researchers found potential for the compound when in their animal study they were able to prevent colon cancer from developing. The study was first presented at the 233rd national meeting of the American Chemical Society. The study was funded by the National Cancer institute.

Pterostilbene is a powerful antioxidant that these researchers believe could be developed into a pill which might be an alternative treatment of colon cancer with fewer side effects than other commercial drugs. Unlike other fruits and vegetables that have shown to slow down the progression of colon cancer, this antioxidant is showing potential to actually prevent the disease from developing. Pterostilbene will not however cure colon cancer. Colon cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer in the United States.
