Vitamin/Mineral Supplements Significantly Reduce Risk Of Colon Cancer In High-Fat Diet

February 3, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
A study by Indian and Saudi scientists has found that lab animals fed a high-fat/low-fiber diet plus daily vitamin/mineral supplements developed 84 percent fewer precancerous colon lesions. In addition, unlike the animals fed the same diet without a vitamin/mineral supplement, the vitamin-fed animals developed no cancerous colon tumors. The authors concluded that multivitamin and mineral supplements together “contribute to the cancer chemopreventative potential” and “regular supplements of multivitamins and minerals could reduce the risk of colon cancer."
