A new study shows Vitamin E may RAISE the risk of prostate
cancer. 35,000 men were enrolled in a study that was followed for 5 ½ years. Those
taking 400 IU per day of Vitamin E had a 17% increase in prostate cancer.
More than 50% of people 60 years and older are taking supplements. Many of those supplements have 400 IU of Vitamin E. (Mind you, the recommended daily dietary allowance of Vitamin E is only 22.4 IU a day for men)
No explanation for the increased risk of prostate cancer is known, but the experimental outcomes were significant. . . and harmful.
