VITAMIN E VS BLADDER CANCER

Tagged:  

Researchers at the Harvard Medical School report that men who supplement with 250 mg/day or more of vitamin E for 10 years or more reduce their risk of developing bladder cancer by more than 30 per cent. The study, which involved over 50,000 male health professionals, also found a suggestive inverse association between vitamin C supplementation and bladder cancer risk. They found no correlation between bladder cancer risk and any other dietary variables. Dietary intake of vitamin E by itself (excluding supplements) was not associated with a decrease in bladder cancer risk.
