Interview Opportunity/Media Advisory - Experts available to discuss new findings on Vitamin D



    TORONTO, June 8 /CNW/ - Vitamin D, often referred to as the "sunshine
vitamin", is well-known for the role it plays in helping the body absorb
calcium and maintain strong bones for the prevention of osteoporosis. However,
U.S. researchers are announcing the first direct link between cancer
prevention and Vitamin D in a study published today in the American Journal of
Clinical Nutrition. The findings of the four-year clinical study involving
1200 women found that those taking vitamin D had about 60% reduction in cancer
incidence.
    Jamieson Laboratories, Canada's leading manufacturer of natural health
products, offers a number of Vitamin D products, including Vitamin D 1,000 IU,
Vitamin D 400 IU and Vitamin A & D Fortified. One in two Canadians uses a
Jamieson Vitamin D product.

Vitamin D:

              incorporate vitamin D into your diet.
