Vitamin K2
Cancer Treatment: (mostly APL)
1994 Dec Novel role of vitamin K2: a potent inducer of differentiation of various human myeloid leukemia cell lines.
1997 Jun Vitamin K2 and its derivatives induce apoptosis in leukemia cells and enhance the effect of all-trans retinoic acid.

2003 Jan Vitamin K(2) selectively induced apoptosis in ovarian TYK-nu and pancreatic MIA PaCa-2 cells out of eight solid tumor cell lines through a mechanism different from geranylgeraniol.
2008 Vitamin K in vascular health - more than just a role in coagulation

Interesting Questions: Most infants get a Vitamin K shot. Now studies show infants who get Vitamin K shots are more likely to develop leukemia later
#1 Is the risk of leukemia worth getting the shot?
#2 Why do infant Vit K shots inrease risk? Are they Vit K1? Does that temporarily inhibit absorption of Vit K2?
#3 Since Vit K2 is produced by intestinal flora - would probiotics actually be a great guard against leukemia?
#4 What if you had some kind of deficient ability to absort Vit K2 through the intestines - would that make you chronically succeptible to leukemia relapse?
