Selenium and vitamin E don't help in curing prostate cancer
Some earlier researches showed that intake of vitamin E and Selenium helps in curing prostate cancer. But a seven-year research on the effects of Vitamin E and selenium supplements on prostate cancer was stopped.
Analysis of the data collected from more than 35,000 subjects and 400 sites across the United States showed that there were slightly more prostate cancers in men taking vitamin E alone, and slightly more diabetes in men taking only selenium. The 114 million-dollars study was conducted by U.S. National Cancer Institute.
Study subjects were told to stop taking the two pills they'd been taking every day since the trial opened in 2001
Dr. Eric Klein of the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, who worked on the study said, "As we continue to monitor the health of these 35,000 men, this information may help us understand why two nutrients that showed strong initial evidence to be able to prevent prostate cancer did not do so."
