Lecture: Dr. Garland, Vitamin D and Cancer

On September 26, 2008, Dr. Cedric F. Garland, a Professor from the UCSD Department of Family and Preventive Medicine, and member of the Moores Cancer Center, presented “Here Comes the Sun: Vitamin D for Preventing and Helping Cure Cancer” as part of the UCSD Biomedical Library lunchtime seminar series. His talk focused on recent advances in research on uses of vitamin D for prevention of breast and other types of cancer, and increasing the success of cancer treatment.

Below is a slideshow of Dr. Garland's PowerPoint slides.  Note: some of the original slides included build-type animations which had to be "flattened" for this Flash show format. The data is all present.

Dr. Garland is a Fellow of the American College of Epidemiology. He has a Doctor of Public Health degree from UCSD and studied epidemiology at Johns Hopkins. His goal is to eradicate cancer. He works closely on this goal with his colleagues, Drs. Frank Garland and Edward Gorham, and Sharif Mohr, M.P.H. Dr. Garland is the author or coauthor of 150 abstracts, book chapters and research publications, mainly about breast and colon cancer and melanoma. He and his coauthors have developed a novel cancer theory, the Devolution hypothesis, based mainly on their research on the role of vitamin D in reducing the risk of cancer and improving healthy survival of cancer patients.
