Chinese Study Finds That Dietary And Supplemental Vitamin E Reduces Risk Of Liver Cancer

July 17, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
An analysis of health data from nearly 133,000 middle-aged and older Chinese men and women found that vitamin E intake from both diet and supplements were associated with a lower risk of liver cancer, the third most common cause of cancer mortality in the world. The association was consistent among participants with and without self-reported liver disease or a family history of liver cancer. "We found a clear, inverse dose-response relation between vitamin E intake and liver cancer risk," the authors wrote. Nuts, seeds, and vegetable oils are among the best natural sources of vitamin E.
