A recent study points to vitamin D as a new treatment option for those suffering from mesothelioma. Doctors show positive test results from early studies and are hopeful that the use of vitamin D could help manage all types of cancer in the future.
According to Dr. Alex Adjei, a doctor at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute, “Vitamin D can actually kill cancer cells grown in the lab, as well as in animal models, and it can prevent cells from dividing, growing, and spreading.”
Another doctor, Mary Ellen Reid, is hopeful that the new treatment can even go as far as reversing some progressions of lung cancer.
Mesothelioma develops over many decades and is incredibly difficult to treat. Studies continue to be completed to see if the vitamin D treatment could help to save the lives of those diagnosed with mesothelioma.
