Four years ago, we reported that taking too many vitamins may be bad for you. Now scientists are saying that taking certain vitamins may shorten your lifespan and make you more likely to get cancer.
BBC News reports that a study in Denmark reveals that antioxidant vitamins such as A E and C may actually increase the risk of early death. Beta-carotene produced an approximate 7% increased risk of death, vitamin E a 4% increase and vitamin A, a 16% increase. The researchers say, "Considering that 10% to 20% of the adult population in Europe and North America may consume the supplements, the public health consequences may be substantial."
