W/F Safe link to an article talking about a study linking Vitamin D to reductions in cancer rates.

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20070428.wxvitamin28/BNStory/ specialScienceandHealth/home

Favorite quote from article:
"A four-year clinical trial involving 1,200 women found those taking the vitamin had about a 60-per-cent reduction in cancer incidence, compared with those who didn't take it, a drop so large — twice the impact on cancer attributed to smoking — it almost looks like a typographical error."

Its funny that I came across this article today since I just switched from Cod Liver Oil (w/ Vit D) to fish oil (no Vit D) now that spring is here.
