Vitamin E Prevents Cancer

Advantages and disadvantages of vitamin supplements have been discussed many times. Some experts are of the view that vitamins are quite beneficial for health and some experts are of the view that it raises the risk of cancer.

Yet another study has been taken out, which is of the view that two forms of vitamin E, known as gamma and delta-tocopherols, which is also found in soybean, canola and corn oils, are able to prevent colon, lung, breast and prostate cancers.

Chung S. Yang, who is Director of the Center for Cancer Prevention Research at the Rutgers Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy and the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, said that he has also come across studies, which are of the view that vitamins increase risk of cancer and decrease bone density.

However, their study is different as they advocate the use of two forms of vitamin E. “Our message is that the vitamin E form of gamma-tocopherols, the most abundant form of vitamin E in the American diet, and delta-tocopherols, also found in vegetable oils, are beneficial in preventing cancers while the form of vitamin E, alpha- tocopherol, the most commonly used”, said Yang.

In order to reach at the above given conclusion, the study researchers were of the view that they assessed many animal studies as well as human epidemiological studies. Both the things were assessed so that they can know link between vitamin E and cancer.

After assessing the studies, it was found that vitamin E is capable of preventing cancer and same thing was found when experiments were being conducted in animal models. Yang said that it is suggested that people should have vitamin E rich food, so that they can remain free from array of health problems.
