Clinical Study Title:
Multivitamin use and mortality in a large prospective study.
|Plain English Summary:|
|This large scale study examined over a million people in the U.S. and compared their mortality rates after segregating them into groups based on their multivitamin and supplement use. Those participants that had just used a multivitamin alone, without Vitamins A, C, or E, had minimal reductions in cancer and heart disease rates. However, those participants who had multivitamin use with vitamins A, C, and E had significantly reduced risk of heart disease related deaths (mortality).|
