Vitamins and Selenium Don't Prevent Prostate Cancer
Cancer is a disease. And according to Dr. Fuhrman, eating lots of high-nutrient foods protect against prostate cancer, namely fruits and vegetables, like watermelon, tomatoes, pomegranates, green vegetables, berries and figs. And avoiding harmful foods, like meat and dairy, help reduce men’s risk of prostate cancer. A healthy diet is key! Not just taking supplements and eating crappy food.
That’s why a new study in the Journal of the American Medical Association reveals vitamin C, vitamin E and selenium don’t prevent prostate cancer. Researchers found that 35,533 cancer-free men, in their 50’s, who took selenium and vitamin supplements, several years later had the same risk of developing prostate cancer as men who received the placebo, Health Magazine investigates.
And similar research has shown simply taking vitamins C and E don’t ward off heart disease either.
