Remember: Multivitamins drastically reduce cancer risk in men
BUT vitamins do NOT work well without a really effective mineral supplement and that mineral supplement needs to be PLANT derived – the ONLY sort that the body can USE PROPERLY. Avoid the usual cheap high street metallic mineral supplements.
A great answer to this could well be the Plant Derived Mineral Supplement we are using! Since starting on these just one year ago (January 2014) – we find that energy is good, resistance to colds and other pesky ailments is good and so I would recommend them to anyone!

A Natural News Article saying that the use of vitamin supplements help hugely with many health issues. This is true and cannot be mistaken. However, you do need to be aware of the point at the head of this post – something we did not realise when we were first introduced to supplements! It’s also something you will NOT usually be told in a doctors surgery. Listen to the doctor on the link above – a VERY informative audio on why and what regarding helping yourself to better health.
(NaturalNews) It’s not that the hundreds of billions of dollars spent over the years on cancer research has been a complete waste, but sometimes the simplest answer is the best one.
A just-released study of nearly 15,000 men over the age of 50 suggests that taking a daily supplemental multivitamin could reduce rates of cancer by about eight percent. That may not sound like much, but it’s enough of a risk reduction to make it well worth your while to pop a One-A-Day or Centrum.
“Despite the lack of definitive trial data regarding the benefits of multivitamins in the prevention of chronic disease, including cancer, many men and women take them for precisely this reason,” said Dr. Michael Gaziano, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and lead author of the study published today in the Journal of the American Medical Association. “Our study shows a modest but significant benefit in cancer prevention.”
Differences seen over past studies
The study did not examine men and women under the age of 50, so it wasn’t clear whether that age group would see similar benefits. Then again, cancer generally afflicts older adults.
Previous large-study research, including a 180,000-patient effort begun in 1992 and the Women’s Health Initiative Study of 160,000 women that was published in 2009, discovered that multivitamins had little-to-no effect on cancer risk, ABC News reported.
“In fact, a 2010 Swedish study of 35,000 women who reported using multivitamins had an increased risk of breast cancer,” the news affiliate said.
What was different this time around, then?
