Vitamin E and Lung Cancer Prevention

By: News Canada

(NC)-Lung cancer, the most preventative of all human cancers, remains the leading cause of cancer death for both men and women. Several studies have shown that vitamin E supplementation is associated with a lower risk of developing lung cancer in non-smokers. Unfortunately, the same benefit was not seen in smokers.

The most effective health action for smokers is still to stop smoking.

It is believed that the beneficial effect of vitamin E is a consequence of its antioxidant role, which may be enhanced when taken in combination with

other antioxidants such as vitamin C, beta-carotene and selenium. All of these nutrients are available in a quality multivitamin such as Centrum?, available in your local pharmacy. For more information on supplementation, visit www.centrumvitamins.ca.
