    i don’t mean to sound pessimistic, but if cancer cases fell by 90% (in women), what do you think would happen to funding for cancer research? if it weren’t such a big thing, then would universities and labs be able to get money to continue searching for a cure?

      Funding for any kind of research is quite tricky in the current economical situation, but this kind of research is ongoing despite findings. Presently, researchers only link and associate certain things to cancer statistics. There’s a long way to go until there’s actual solid proof and reasoning behind these statistics. And I’m quite sure that until there’s gonna be a pill for cancer that can be sold for hard cash (because no one will release it to the public if they can make a profit), research won’t cease. And even if the government cuts funding for this kind of research, it’s the private investors that have more to gain from this. Information is money my friend!

    I am curious about a couple of your statements.
    Firstly the studies I have read on animal trials and vitamin K2 have shown that the bones are stronger. Can please give details of the studies that show the the bones aren’t as strong.
    Secondly you say that a study has shown that men who take K2 supplements are more likely to get prostate cancer. Please can you give details of which study this has come from. The only study I know of regarding prostate cancer and vitamin K2 is the EPIC-Heidelberg study which has shown that men who consume more K2 are less likely to get advance prostate cancer.
    I am very intrigued by vitamin K2 and I would welcome knowing about any negative studies.
