The Right Forms Of Vitamin E Do Prevent Cancer, Review Of Research Finds

April 23, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Vitamin E in the forms known as gamma-tocopherols and delta-tocopherols – found abundantly in vegetable oils – are beneficial in preventing cancers, a U.S. review of research finds. The researchers were careful to point out, however, that the vitamin E form known as alpha-tocopherol, commonly found in supplements, offers no such benefit. The beneficial forms of vitamin E are found in soybean, canola and corn oils, as well as nuts, and have been shown to prevent colon, breast and prostate cancers in animal models.
