Top surgeon calls for ALL women to be given Vitamin D to cut breast cancer… as ballet dancers reveal they use pills to keep them strong
- Professor Kefah Mokbel thinks 1,000 lives a year could be saved
- He is handing the supplements to women at his clinic in London
- The pills would cost the NHS 12p per woman per day
- Studies show vitamin is effective at fighting and preventing the disease
All women over the age of 20 should take a daily dose of Vitamin D to reduce their chances of developing breast cancer, an expert claims.
Professor Kefah Mokbel is writing to Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt to argue that making the ‘sunshine vitamin’ free on the NHS would save 1,000 lives a year.
He has already started handing out the pills to female patients at his private clinic. But he believes all women should get them – even those who have not been diagnosed with the disease.
