Studies have shown that vitamin D suppresses cancer cell growth. Similarly, omega-3 can inhibit the conversion of normal cells into cancer cells, and exercise has been shown to improve immune function and reduce inflammation, which may help prevent cancer.
Cancer is considered one of the dominant age-related diseases in Europe and the United States. It is the second leading cause of death among the elderly, and the likelihood of getting a type of cancer increases with age.
Previously, there were no reliable clinical studies proving the effectiveness of these three simple methods alone or in combination.
According to Dr. Heike Bischoff-Ferrari of the University Hospital of Zurich, she and her colleagues wanted to fill these gaps in knowledge and tested the effects of daily high doses of vitamin D3, which is a form of vitamin D supplementation, as well as daily supplemental doses of omega-3 and a simple home exercise program.
To do this, the authors conducted DO-HEALTH: a three-year study in five European countries-Switzerland, France, Germany, Austria and Portugal-with 2,157 participants.
The results show that all three treatments — vitamin D3, omega-3, and exercise — worked well together and reduced the risk of severe cancer.
Individually, each treatment had little individual benefit, but together they showed a 61% reduction in cancer risk.
