Researchers at the University of Texas Anderson Cancer Center have found that taking more vitamin E substantially reduces lung cancer. Their new study shows that people consuming the highest amounts of vitamin E had the greatest benefit. When they compared persons taking the most vitamin E with those taking the least, there was a 61% reduction in lung cancer risk.
Lung cancer is the most prevalent form of cancer on earth; over 1.3 million people are diagnosed with it each year and it kills nearly 1.2 million per year. It accounts for 12% of all cancers, but results in 18% of all cancer deaths.
