If I understand your objection, it boils down to that the original study is valid, but the MSM “misleads by omission” in subsequent news?

The reaction of the media to the study revealed in a stark way their deeply ingrained prejudice against nutritional solutions to cancer.

Strictly speaking, this is not a nutritional solution since adequate levels of vitamin D can be made by the body with enough exposure to sunlight (and in the summer time, it's only about 10 min per day). And it's no wonder that vitamin D could be protective against one type of cancer and not others because there are many different diseases that are all called cancer.

Important also to remember that correlation does not equal causation. That is, vitamin D may not stave off their cancer as much as an aggressive cancer might reduce patient vitamin D level faster. (I also note that there are different *kinds* of vitamin D, which may behave very differently. For example, “D3” is unique in having several medicinal properties that other versions of vitamin D do not. Fortunately on supplement bottles, they usually note what form of vitamin D it is.)

Cancer is almost an intelligent enemy, that it, it *adapts* when attacked, to protect itself. Truly an eerie phenomenon.

For this reason, it is now being recommended that when they attack a cancer, they do so with three different techniques at the same time, overwhelming its ability to adjust.

So be wary of a “magic bullet”. You can’t just kill Dracula with a stake through the heart. You also have to behead him and bury him at a crossroads, as it were.
