Study Links Multivitamins, Breast Cancer

The already confusing link between dietary supplements and cancer risk just got a tiny bit murkier.

A study published online last week in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition tracked approximately 35,000 middle-aged Swedish women.  After 10 years, women who said they took multivitamins were found to be at a 19% greater risk for breast cancer than women who didn’t take multivitamins.

This is a large study, but it’s still only one study, and no one should ever change their behavior based on the results of a single study.

But it’s only the latest to suggest that we should look to the whole diet, not supplements, for cancer protection.

For more on this often confusing issue, and the AICR “bottom line,” check out our In The News statement.
