Abstract

In summary, the two studies (2,3) in this issue of the Journal provide intriguing new evidence that solar radiation may have a beneficial influence in both the incidence and outcome of cancer. In view of the major potential public health consequence of these results, further studies of sunlight and the vitamin D connection to cancer are certainly warranted.
