Yueyue Shen Long-Term Use of Supplemental Multivitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Folate Does Not Reduce the Risk of Lung Cancer. Although antioxidants, such as vitamin E, are believed to reduce the risk for lung cancer, the study done by Christopher G. Slatore (2007) attempts to prove otherwise. Slatore aimed to show the connection between multivitamin, vitamin E, vitamin C, and folate usage and the increased risk of lung cancer. His findings are significant in light of evidence that essential body nutrients are not always beneficial, and may potentially promote lung cancer. In order to find the correlation between the usage of supplemental multivitamins and the frequency of lung cancer, a survey was mailed to 364,418 men and women between ages 50 and 76, who lived in the area covered by the Seattle–Puget Sound Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) cancer registry. 77,719 people (21.3 %) were selected primarily for responding to the mail, and passing the eligibility and quality-control check (Slatore et al., 2007).
