Endometrial Issues

Nations nearer the equator that get more ultraviolet B (UVB) rays -- the major source of the body's circulating vitamin D -- had lower endometrial cancer rates than those with less exposure, although the link was modest (adjusted P=0.02), reported Cedric F. Garland, Dr.P.H., of the University of California at San Diego, and colleagues, in the November 2007 issue of the journal Preventive Medicine.

Dr. Garland stated "the amount of time needed to make enough vitamin D each day is shorter than the amount needed to cause sunburn or to create an increased risk of skin cancer," he said. "No one needs to get more than 10 or 15 minutes a day of sunlight."

For patients who cannot get sufficient exposure, particularly in winter, taking 2,000 IU of an oral vitamin D supplement may suffice, Garland said.
