Multivitamins in the prevention of Cancer in Men

This is an article from the Journal of the American Medical Association from a Physicians Health Study and Randomized Controlled Trial to determine whether long term multivitamin supplementation decreases the risk of total and site specific cancer events among men.

This study apparently began in 1997 and ended in 2011 including 14,641 men and 1,321 of those had a history of cancer. They selected a commonly used multivitamin formulation, Centrum Silver, at the time they study (PHS II) was initiated in 1997 to increase the potential generalizability (?? their term  not mine) of their findings.

The study stated that men taking a daily multivitamin had a statistically significant reduction in the incidence of total cancer. There was no significant difference between men with a history of cancer and those without a history.

MyAchingKnees comment: You may as well take nothing if you taking any Centrum product. We call it the original bedpan pill. It is listed close to the bottom in the Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements. The Linxian Chinese Cancer Prevention Trial 35 targeting 29,584 adults with low baseline nutrient status, tested a combination of beta carotene, vitamin E, and selenium for 6 years and found significant reductions of 9% in total mortality, 13% reduction in cancer mortality, and 21% reduction in gastric cancer mortality. After 10 years of post trial follow-up, the beneficial effects on total and cancer mortality remained with the subjects taking those aforementioned nutrients.  Imagine what you may be able to do with your health taking all the necessary nutrients in robust doses?
