Vitamin D and Cancer

The government of Canada wants me to take 1000 UI of Vitamin D daily. They tell me this will cut my risk of cancer by 60%. What do you think?

The only thing that makes me feel confident is that it is not a food-derived vitamin. I don't believe that taking Vitamin C, for example, is better than eating fruit rich in Vitamin C. However, getting enough Vitamin D when it is 40 below is tough.

Lots of research coming out about the benefits of vitamin D.

I never heard of that. Though Vitamin D is hard to obtain without sun, it is harder to obtain without fat attached to it; Curious idea...
