Should I Take Vitamins To Decrease Your Chance Of Developing Prostate Cancer?

Answer: There have been a number of studies to demonstrate that vitamin D, serum levels of vitamin D, if they're deficient, they could increase your risk of prostate cancer. So indeed, supplements may be indicated. However you should get your levels checked by your physician to determine exactly how deficient your vitamin D levels are and appropriate recommendations could be made as to how you could supplement this.
