Abstract

Evidence is emerging that at least some vitamins may play a role in reducing cancer risks. Over the past year, the best evidence for such effects has been presented for vitamins A, D and E; less consistent evidence has been presented for vitamin C. Although there are still many inconsistencies in our understanding of the anti-cancer roles and mechanisms of these vitamins, it is possible that they may account for at least some of the apparently cancer-protective effects associated with certain dietary patterns.
