The simple answer is that the Tropic of Cancer is 23.5 degrees north latitude.

The ICL study was designed to clarify the relationship between vitamin D levels and the progression of breast cancer from early to advanced stages.
Beyond the fact that Dr. Apperly demonstrated many decades ago that high levels of the vitamin are linked to lower breast cancer risk, we also have two previous studies that support the preventive effect of vitamin D on this cancer.

 Tropic of Cancer
Like those two unassailable works, Henry Miller's once-banned, now-legendary Tropic of Cancer was considered "unfilmable" by many but in 1970 Strick took a shot at translating it too, and the film is now seeing a re-release paired with Bernardo Bertolucci's once-banned, now-legendary Last Tango in Paris.
While the tone and temperament of Miller's tale is retained, Tropic of Cancer is really a book to be savored at the turn of each page, not viewed as a cinematic treatment or interpretation.

He is known for breaking with existing literary forms and developing a new sort of "novel" that is a mixture of novel, autobiography, social criticism, philosophical reflection, surrealist free association, and mysticism, one that is distinctly always about and expressive of the real-life Henry Miller and yet is also fictional.
