Can vitamins and selenium prevent prostate cancer? Studies tell all…
If you're man wanting to reduce your risk of prostate cancer, you're probably wondering if you should bother popping antioxidant vitamins.

Studies uncover that vitamins and selenium won’t ward of prostate cancer or other diseases in men

In the one study, 35,533 men in their 50s or older who didn’t have cancer took vitamin E and selenium alone or in combination. A few years later, these men had the same risk of developing prostate cancer as men who took a placebo.
 
The second study, which looked at 14,641 men – some of whom had early-stage prostate cancer – found that a combination of vitamins C and E didn’t prevent prostate cancer or any other type of cancer.
 
“It looks like these particular antioxidants are not effective,” says Howard Soule, chief scientific officer of the Prostate Cancer Foundation in the United States. Soule wasn’t involved in either of these studies.

Back in the 1990s, vitamins seemed like a promising weapon for preventing prostate cancer. One study found that men who took selenium supplements had a 65% lower risk of prostate cancer. Another study found that vitamin E reduced prostate cancer risk by 35%.
 
However, these studies have limitations. They either looked at men in the population who just happened to be taking vitamins for other reasons, or weren’t designed to specifically look at prostate cancer.
