Daily Multivitamins Cut Cancer Risk in Men, First Study of Its Kind Finds

Multivitamin cuts cancer riskTaking a daily multivitamin pill may reduce the risk of cancer in men, a new study revealed. The study found that men ages 50 and over who regularly used daily multivitamins were 8 percent less likely to develop cancer over 11-year period compared to men who took a placebo.

Scientists said that the lowered cancer risk was a modest but valuable reduction.

However, researchers were not able to identify a single vitamin or combination that works, suggesting that the benefit may come from a broad combination of low dose vitamins.

Additionally when the researchers analyzed men's risk of specific cancer, like prostate, lung and colon cancer, the multivitamin did not have an effect, and men who took a multivitamin were just as likely to die from cancer as men who took a placebo.
