  1. Reduced risk of colon cancer with high intake of vitamin E : the Iowa Women's Health Study.

    Article - En anglais

    Antioxidant micronutrients, including vitamin E., vitamin C, the carotenoids, and selenium, defend the body against free radicals and reactive oxygen molecules, suggesting a potential for these dietary components in cancer prevention.

    To investigate whether high intakes of antioxidant micronutrients protect against colon cancer in humans, we analyzed data from a prospective cohort study of 35,215 Iowa women aged 55-69 years and without a history of cancer who completed a dietary questionnaire in 1986.

    Thruugh 1990, 212 incident cases of colon cancer were documented.

    Adjusted for age, total vitamin E intake was inversely associated with the risk of colon cancer (P for trend <0.0001); the relative risk for the gighest compared to tge lowest quintile was 0.32 [95% confidence interval (95% CI) 0.19, 0.54].
