Joan Lappe, PhD, Director of Clinical and Pediatric Studies at Creighton University and co-author of a study titled "Vitamin D and Calcium Supplementation Reduces Cancer Risk: Results of a Randomized Trial," published June 2007 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition said:

“This is the first clinical trial to show that boosting vitamin D status can affect the overall risk for cancer – a proposition that has tremendous public health potential.

By choosing vitamin-D rich foods like milk and taking a supplement Americans can help improve their vitamin D levels and potentially impact their cancer risk.”
