Taking more than daily allowance of supplements may increase cancer risk

the ONA take:

According to findings presented during the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2015 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, researchers have found that too many dietary supplements may increase the risk of developing cancer.

Results of the study ultimately showed that supplementing one's diet with vitamins that are obtained from eating a healthy diet is unlikely to decrease the risk of developing cancer. In addition, researchers found that taking more than the recommended daily allowance of certain supplements can increase the risk of cancer. Specifically, consuming more than the recommended daily allowance of beta-carotene, folic acid, and vitamin E were shown to elevate cancer risk.

The study showed that taking more than the recommended daily allowance of supplemental beta-carotene, a supplement used to improve vision, increased the risk of both heart disease and lung cancer by 20%. An excess of vitamin E supplementation increased the risk of developing prostate cancer and folic acid increased the number of colon polyps.

The researchers conclude that dietary supplements and vitamins should not be avoided altogether, but rather should be taken within the recommended daily allowance when a healthy diet is not enough.
