A recent study suggests a daily multiple vitamin may reduce cancer risk in men

A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that men taking a daily multiple vitamin had lower instances of cancer when compared to the men taking a placebo.

Murrieta, CA – On October 17, 2012 a study on multivitamin use was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The objective of this study was “to determine whether long-term multivitamin supplementation decreases the risk of total and site-specific cancer events among men.” The study found that men who took a multivitamin every day had lower instances of caner than the men who took the placebo.

Dr. J. Michael Gaziano led a team of doctors who performed a decade long study on the affect of multivitamin supplementation on cancer in adult men. This study was sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and consisted of 14,641 male physicians in the United States with an initial age of 50 years or older. The decision to use physicians as study participants was so that there would be “high-quality reporting of health information.”

Participants in this large-scale, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, called Physicians’ Health Study II, were given a daily multivitamin or placebo and followed up with for over a decade. The study looked at cases of site-specific cancer, such as prostate cancer and colorectal cancer as well as total cancer, not including non-melanoma skin cancer. The study concluded “in this large prevention trial of male physicians, daily multivitamin supplementation modestly but significantly reduced the risk of total cancer.”

The study also looked at any possible negative side effects of taking a daily multiple vitamin on the study participants, such as gastrointestinal tract symptoms (peptic ulcer, constipation, diarrhea, gastritis, and nausea), fatigue, drowsiness, skin discoloration, and migraine. The study found none of these to be an issue; however participants taking the multivitamin were more likely to suffer from rashes.
