Studies: Vitamins Do Not Reduce Cancer Risk

VitaminsTwo major studies in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found that taking vitamins did not significantly reduce or prevent cancer.

The conclusions of the two studies are below,
"In this large, long-term trial of male physicians, neither vitamin E nor C supplementation reduced the risk of prostate or total cancer. These data provide no support for the use of these supplements for the prevention of cancer in middle-aged and older men." -- Vitamins E and C in the Prevention of Prostate and Total Cancer in Men

"Selenium or vitamin E, alone or in combination at the doses and formulations used, did not prevent prostate cancer in this population of relatively healthy men." -- Effect of Selenium and Vitamin E on Risk of Prostate Cancer and Other Cancers
