New study shows powerful effect...... "Nutr Cancer. 2010;62(2):
Intakes of vitamin A, C, and E, and beta-carotene are associated with
risk of cervical cancer: a case-control study in
Korea.".............."Those patients in the highest quartiles of
dietary vitamin A, beta -carotene, and vitamin C intakes had
statistically significantly lower cervical cancer risks than those in
the lowest quartiles for vitamin A, beta -carotene, and vitamin C:
odds ratio (OR) = 0.36 [95% confidence interval (CI) = 0.19-0.69), OR
= 0.48 (CI = 0.26-0.88), and OR = 0.36 (CI = 0.18-0.69), respectively.
Total intakes of vitamins A, C, and E were strongly inversely
associated with cervical cancer risk: OR = 0.35 (CI = 0.19-0.65), OR =
0.35 (CI = 0.19-0.66), and OR = 0.53 (CI = 0.28-0.99), respectively.
The findings support a role for increased antioxidant vitamin intake
in decreasing the risk of cervical cancer........PMID: 20099192
