Taking Vitamin E Increases the Risk of Prostate Cancer

A research team in Cleveland Clinic reported to Journal of the American Medical Association, which "Men who took a high daily dose of vitamin E had a 17% greater risk of developing prostate cancer".

Data from previous studies suggested that taking vitamin E might help protect men against prostate cancer, so Dr. Minasian and her colleagues at the NCI (National Cancer Institute) decided to take a closer look at the connection between the two.
Beginning in 2001, they started the Select trial, studying more than 35,000 men age 55 and older in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.
They divided the men into four groups, each with different kinds of daily diet supplements: vitamin E, selenium, both vitamin E and selenium, or a placebo pill.

"We expected that the numbers of prostate cancer would be smaller in men taking vitamin E, but we found larger numbers instead," Minasian said.

After 7 years, the researchers detected more prostate cancer in men taking one or both of the supplements, but the men taking vitamin E showed the most significant increase in their rates of prostate cancer.
And the numbers of prostate cancer diagnoses kept climbing after the men stopped taking the vitamins.
Of the 8,737 men taking vitamin E, 620 of them got prostate cancer, compared to 529 of the 8,896 men taking a placebo - a 17% increased risk for men taking the supplement.

Food supplement pills are easy to take, but man made stuff often have negative factor too.

I think I have mentioned about overtaking Vitamin C in past post.

If you overtook Vitamin C by food, your body urinate out them.

In general, human been cannot overtake Vitamin C unless you take supplement tubs.

Overtaking of Vitamin C induces diarrhea, ulcer in stomach, kidney failure, urolith and oxalosis.

So you better take vitamins by natural foods.
