A study presented to the National Cancer Institute shows that taking vitamins C and E may reduce the risk of prostate cancer. Researchers at the University of Wisconsin looked at prostate cancer cells and their response to male hormones.

They found that vitamins C and E somehow prevented cancerous changes. They’re not sure how the vitamins work on the prostate cell, and it’s too early to make any recommendations on their use.

But other studies have found a great deal of evidence about vitamin E preventing heart disease. And researchers recently reported that taking vitamins C and E before a fatty meal may reduce the bad effects the fat could cause.

Most people can take the vitamins without experiencing side effects. Ask your doctor what’s right for you.
