The media has been ranting of late that there is NO benefit to vitamin usage, It is practically a mantra with them. Yet, the actual studies that are being done say otherwise!
“Breast cancer is a condition feared by women worldwide even though in many cases there are effective treatments. Medical News Today notes that breast cancer is the most common invasive cancer in females across the world. MedPage Today reported on Oct. 10, 2013, ‘Vitamin Use Tied to Lower Breast Cancer Death.’
An analysis of data from the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) showed postmenopausal breast cancer patients had a significantly decreased risk of dying of the disease if they consumed multivitamins with minerals. Overall, use of multivitamins with minerals has been found to be associated with a 30% lower likelihood of breast cancer mortality in women who were taking the vitamins at diagnosis.
Sylvia Wassertheil-Smoller, PhD, has said ‘This large prospective study among U.S. older women showed a consistent association between multivitamin and mineral use and lower breast cancer mortality.’ In an earlier analysis of WHI data an association between multivitamin use and the risk of developing breast cancer was not seen.”
