A new study into the effects of vitamins and the risk of a type of skin cancer has a finding that runs counter to previous research.
Initially, it was thought that women who took supplements for vitamin C and E, beta carotene, selenium and zinc were at an increased risk of developing melanoma. However, a new study has found that this isn't the case.
Dr Mayyan M. Asgari led the research team that collected data on 69,671 women and men who participated in the study designed to look at whether taking supplements brought on an added risk of developing cancer.
Between the years of 2000 and 2002, the subjects were given a questionnaire to complete that asked them about their lifestyle, medical history, diet and supplement use. Researchers found that multivitamins and supplements that were taken for more than a decade posed no increased risk of melanoma for women and men.
Those who are worried about melanoma may want to consider cancer testing. Many people have turned to lab tests as a way to inquire about their wellbeing, which can help them change their lifestyle or diet to gain optimal health.
