Selenium and Vitamin E Reduce Prostate Cancer Risk
Filed under: Prostate Cancer Prevention
Researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle report that higher dietary intake of selenium reduces prostate cancer risk when combined with high vitamin E intake.
Overall, the researchers found no association between serum selenium and prostate cancer risk. However, higher serum selenium correlated with a lower likelihood of prostate cancer in men who reported a high vitamin E intake (more than the average of 28 IU per day) and those taking multivitamins.
