Here’s a clue: Though it may be very small, it can pack a powerful, nutritional punch.
The answer: A multivitamin.
Taking a daily multivitamin may lower your risk of developing cancer, says a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Researchers tracked nearly 15,000 male physicians (50 years or older) for more than a decade, asking half to take a daily multivitamin, while the others took a placebo. At the end of the study, the data showed that men who took the daily multivitamin experienced 8 percent fewer cancers than those who took the placebo.
