Multivitamins May Reduce Colon Cancer Risk

Posted on by Paula Gallagher

New research published in the Canadian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology (CJPP) has found an 84% reduction in developing precancerous lesions and tumors when rats were fed a high fat, low fiber diet, with the addition of a multivitamin and mineral supplement. Six groups were fed the low fiber, high fat diet and given different combinations of supplements and carcinogens that mimicked human colon cancer. The conclusion was that regular supplements of multivitamins and minerals could reduce the risk of colon cancer. Colon cancer is the second most common form of the disease affecting men and women in the US, with nearly 150,000 new diagnoses each year. Diet and lifestyle choices play a large role in colon health. High fiber and nutrient dense foods are important in keeping the colon healthy. And now research indicates the importance of a good quality multivitamin and mineral as well. Pathway Multi Two is a comprehensive multivitamin and mineral that incorporates the latest research on nutrient transport and interaction to enhance absorption.
