Abstract
Vitamin D has been widely used as a supplementary component in food and drinks, for it helps human body utilize calcium and phosphorus to make stronger bones and teeth. Both nutrition and skin exposure to sunshine can make vitamin D. Scientists have been investigated the relationship between vitamin D and cancers. So far, certain evidences have been reported showing vitamin D helps curing or reduces the death rate of colon cancer, prostate cancer and breast cancer. In this paper we have reviewed recent progress of research in these fields and provide advice for future investigation.
