Selenium linked to lower skin cancer risks - 0 views

  •  
    Higher blood levels of selenium may reduce the incidence of skin cancer by about 60 per cent, according to a new study from Dutch and Australian researchers.
    Writing in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, the researchers report that the mineral was associated with reduced risks of both basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).

    On the other hand, blood levels of carotenoids and alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E) were not associated with any influence on skin cancer risks, report the researchers from Queensland Institute of Medical Research, the University of Queensland, and Maastricht University.

    Fish consumption and risk of major chronic disease in men.
    Virtanen JK, Mozaffarian D, Chiuve SE, Rimm EB.
    Am J Clin Nutr. 2008 Dec;88(6):1618-25.
    PMID: 19064523
    doi:10.3945/ajcn.2007.25816

    Conclusions: Modest fish consumption was associated with a lower risk of total cardiovascular disease, consistent with cardiac mortality benefits but not with total cancer or overall major chronic disease; n-6 fatty acid consumption did not influence these relations.
