There is now convincing evidence linking higher concentrations of vitamin D with a lower risk of colorectal cancer. A study published in 2019 analyzed over 5,700 colorectal cancer cases and 7,100 controls from the United States, Europe, and Asia. People with deficient concentrations of vitamin D were found to have a 31 percent higher risk of colorectal cancer. Conversely, higher concentrations were associated with a lower risk of the disease. Other researchers have found that giving chemotherapy patients high-dose vitamin D delays the progression of metastatic colorectal cancer.
