Vitamin fights prostate cancer

Vitamin E can protect men from prostate cancer, according to researchers.

Men with high levels of the alpha tocopherol form of vitamin E were 53 per cent less likely to develop prostate cancer.

The researchers stressed it was better to take vitamin E from fresh food than supplements.

The US National Cancer Institute study was presented at the American Association of Cancer Research annual meeting in Orlando.
