Men who pop a daily multivitamin appear to have a moderately lower risk for developing cancer


Men who pop a daily multivitamin appear to have a moderately lower risk for developing cancer, according to researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital and the Veterans Administration Boston Healthcare System. This is the first large study to test the effectiveness of multivitamins in preventing cancer. And the findings are a bit of a surprise! Previous, smaller studies have found that multivitamins not only don't help prevent chronic diseases, but also might even increase the risk of cancer. For every 1,000 men per year in the study, there were 17 cancers among multivitamin users and more than 18 among those taking the placebo pills, reports AP. That means a daily multivitamin pill can cut the chance of developing cancer by 8%.
