Vitamin E intake, alpha-tocopherol status, and pancreatic cancer in a cohort of male smokers
Have I mentioned that cancer risk can be modified with lifestyle? In this study we see a 48% reduced risk for pancreatic cancer (again-a very, very bad cancer) with highest blood levels of alpha tocopherol. Sound good? In those with the highest intake of polyunsatured fats (fats found in such foods as nuts, but which are very prone to becoming oxidized) the reduction was 62%. 62%. In my book, that’s pretty good.
