High dose vitamin C Trigger Cancer Risk?

Consumption of vitamin supplements in food or pills as long as it is believed to increase endurance. Not surprisingly, most people consume a lot of supplements in the hope of staying healthy body.

But the assumption that many supplements will give more advantage seems to be thrown away. Research shows that men who consumed more high -dose vitamin C supplementation increased risk of developing prostate cancer. The researchers said the increased risk ranged up to 30 percent.

The findings of the scientists from the Harvard School of Public Health, Boston, U.S. and University of Oslo Norway is not the first to warn the risk of excessive vitamin. Researchers linking high doses of vitamin C with increased risk of mortality and prostate cancer.

This research also involves 48 thousand men aged 40-75 years during 1986 to 2008. Every 4 years, the respondents completed a questionnaire designed to record their eating habits. Researchers followed them to see which one is more likely to experience prostate cancer.

The results, published in the International Journal of Cancer that showed antioxidant intake from food or pills, do not reduce or increase the risk of tumors. Antioxidants can fight the tumor process called oxidation. It is this process that destroys the tumor cells.

It is important to note that men who consumed the most antioxidants from vitamin pills 28 percent higher risk of developing prostate cancer than those who consumed little or no supplements at all.

Those who drank the most vitamin supplements are also at risk about 15 percent higher advanced prostate cancer. These tumors can quickly spread to other organs and reduces the chance of survival.

According to researchers, this study confirms that the intake of high amounts of antioxidants are associated with increased risk of lethal prostate cancer and quickly spread.

"Contributors primarily vitamin C. These findings further research to be a reference,"they said.

But the researchers said, until more research is done they are not sure whether vitamin supplements actually cause cancer.

Dr Carrie Ruxton of the Health Supplements Information Service in the United Kingdom expressed a different opinion. According to him, he is very likely to experience symptoms of prostate cancer terkair or weakness long before being diagnosed.

"Cancer has nothing to do with the consumption of supplements," he said.

Consumption of high doses of vitamins are popular lately. Stores sellers can sell supplements vitamin C tablet dose of 1,000 milligrams. Though the body only needs 40 milligrams in order to quickly recover and stay healthy.
