Vitamin E Fights Prostate Cancer

Vitamin E can protect men from prostate cancer, according to a National Cancer Institute study. Men with high levels of the alpha tocopherol form of vitamin E were 53 percent less likely to develop prostate cancer. The researchers stressed it was better to take vitamin E from fresh food than supplements. Unfortunately, many Americans do not consume enough vitamin E from diet alone. Sunflower seeds, spinach, almonds and sweet peppers are good food sources of vitamin E, but please be aware that vitamin E can be depleted by a low-fat diet and also the following drugs:

  • Cholestyramine Resin (Questran)
  • Colestipol (Colestid)
  • Isoniazid
  • Mineral Oil
