Clinical Study Title:
Vitamin C and vitamin E supplement use and bladder cancer mortality in a large cohort of US men and women.
|Plain English Summary:|
|This study looks at the use of vitamin C versus vitamin E in helping to reduce the risk of bladder cancer. Participants were interviewed about their dietary intake, and then followed over the years. The use of vitamin C was not associated with bladder cancer. However, the continued use of vitamin E supplements over the years was associated with a lowered risk of bladder cancer. This suggests that a daily supplement of vitamin E can help to protect against bladder cancer.|
