The task force reviewed the published data and came to the conclusion that women should not take low doses of vitamin D to prevent fracture or for any other benefit.On the surface it sounds like one is wasting his or her money on vitamin D supplement.
Sometimes what seems obvious is hidden in the shadows so to speak. The task force listed above is correct .............AS FAR AS IT GOES. By that I mean they are right in that LOW DOSE 400 IU of vitamin D isn't going to have any measurable effect on peoples lives, especially on preventing cancer in women.
On the other hand when you bump that supplementation up to 4500 IU of vitamin D daily, it has been shown to reduce the incidence of cancer by 51%.
The same task force accurately stated that 1000 mg a day of a calcium supplement PLUS 400 IU of vitamin D does NOT prevent bone fractures.
Again IF you change the parameters and include supplementation of vitamin K and magnesium along with the maintenance of a youthful hormone balance and resistance exercises to that calcium, vitamin D program the outcome changes dramatically.

I believe our bodies are more than the sum of its parts. You must take a comprehensive BALANCED APPROACH TO NUTRITION, and exercise.
If you google websites from Dr. Mercola as an example on vitamin D3 you will find a wealth of information and documentation indicating you are probably NOT getting enough Vitamin D3 or Magnesium, Vitamin K etc. and you are NOT exercising enough.
BELOW are two examples of Dr. Mercola's advice on cancer prevention and vitamin D3
I Corinthians 12: 12-25
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked:
25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
