Vitamin E & Prostate Cancer

Another study showing that just because something has the word “vitamin” in it, doesn’t mean that it is good for you.  Last month’s report on the SELECT trial, which looked at over 35,000 men, found that men taking vitamin E supplementation had a 17% increased risk for prostate cancer.  The original study was actually stopped early because of the increased cancer risk, and now they’ve found that the increased risk has persisted despite the study and supplementation being stopped 3 years ago.  Vitamin E is often included in multivitamins and is often praised as an antioxidant, but it seems that it fails to deliver in some important health conditions.  Because some vitamins and supplements can be beneficial, and others appear to be harmful, I encourage you to talk with your physician about them.  To help facilitate that conversation, bring in the bottles of the supplements you are taking.
