Vitamin E tied to higher Prostate Cancer risk


A new vitamin study confirms what past research has found, too much isn’t necessarily a good thing.

A large, Multi-center trail looked at the impact Selenium and Vitamin E had on Prostate Cancer.

Researchers found men who already have high levels of Selenium who took a supplement on top of that had nearly double the risk for developing Prostate Cancer.

Those who had low levels of Selenium who took Vitamin E also had an increase risk for the disease.

Researchers say men over the age of 55 should avoid these supplements at doses higher than the recommended dietary amount.
