Vitamin D and calcium supplements do not lower risk for adenomas

A new study, led by the University of Colorado, revealed results of a 2,259-person study showing that dietary supplementation with vitamin D and/or calcium after removal of pre-cancerous colorectal adenomas (aka polyps) does not reduce risk of developing future adenomas. Despite promising findings in models of the disease and in previous, smaller trials, the study offers strong evidence against the usefulness of these supplements in the prevention of future polyps.
