Over the last decade or so, it seems like cancer has increasingly made its way into public consciousness. In fact, due to widespread incidences of breast cancer internationally, October has been dubbed Breast Cancer Awareness Month as part of a campaign to educate women (and men) about the disease. What better time, then, to discover that a nutritional supplement may be able to fend off various forms of cancer?

On October 17, The New York Times covered a comprehensive clinical trial that spanned more than 10 years. The research involved monitoring the health of 15,000 male physicians over the age of 50 who either took a mulitivitamin or placebo every day over the course of the study.

According to the official report, which was partially funded by the National Health Institutes and published by the Journal of the American Medical Association, the participants that actually received multivitamins were 8 percent less likely to be diagnosed with cancer in that 10-year span than the men in the control group.

Though not an astronomical figure, this finding is still a comforting one for physicians and individuals alike, given that breast and prostate cancer rates have consistently been on the rise in recent years. However, researchers that took part in the study were adamant that people who take multivitamins regularly should not give up other cancer-fighting activities, like pursuing a healthy lifestyle.

One potential cause for the surge of certain cancers, according to various news sources, is the prevalence of harmful toxins in everyday life. Longevity Centres of America offers numerous detoxification services, such as IV chelation treatment and infrared therapy, that can help flush out hazardous compounds that may increase cancer risk.
