The findings add to a growing body of evidence that suggest vitamin D may have the power to help prevent colon cancer and possibly even improve survival in those who have the disease. The body makes vitamin D after the skin absorbs some of the suns rays.

It is not necessary to visit the doctor anymore to get this test performed. There are blood test spot kits available and you can take help of these kits to do it all by yourself.
