Reporting in Cancer Research, researchers found that men with high sun exposure had half the risk of prostate cancer than did men with low sun exposure. They said in men with certain gene variants, risk was reduced even further, to as much as 65 percent.

Sunlight helps to reduce the risk of prostate cancer because the body manufactures the active form of vitamin D from exposure to sunlight. Prostate uses vitamin D to promote the normal growth of prostate cells and to inhibit the invasiveness and spread of prostate cancer cells to other parts of the body.
