Vitamins won’t stop cancer, heart disease, study suggests

New study is one of many to show no link between vitamins and reduced risk


 

In a new study of over 180,000 people—some who took multivitamins, some who didn’t—researchers saw the same number of deaths from cancer and heart disease in both groups, Reuters reports. Some small studies have shown that specific vitamins, not multivitamins, might protect against cancer or heart disease among older people, but they looked at undernourished people, not healthy adults. More than half of American adults take multivitamins, even though they are generally prescribed only fo those who need extra vitamins. A large clinical trial is underway that may confirm results.

  1. I take vitamin C because it prevents me from getting colds and b-vitamins because they help me poo and give me energy. Neither one of these reasons is “the prevention of cancer and heart disease” as I rely on exercise and not smoking for that, but thanks.

    • LOL, Why did you even bother humiliating yourself with such nonsense? In science, even one wrong word can destroy your credibility! You went over that! lol

      • Apparently you missed the point of my comment. The benefits of taking vitamins are subjective to the user. Not everyone who takes them is doing so for "the prevention of cancer and heart disease" as the article would seem to suggest.

  7. One famous  scientist  claimed that taking a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement definitely can’t stop cancer and even heart disease but  could help and reduce the risks of having cancer and other aged-related illnesses. That’s a fact!
