Multivitamins lower the risk of cancer.
The relationship between multivitamins and cancer is complex. In some studies they help...in others they harm...in yet others they don’t change outcomes.
Over 33% of Americans currently take a multivitamin.
Television ads point to evidence from a single study that shows Centrum Silver reduces the overall risk of cancer by 8%. This translates to 83 patients needing to take a daily multivitamin for 11 years for one patient to avoid cancer.
