B6 and Lung Cancer: Vitamin lowers risk by 60%

By Alan Ng - Jun 17, 2010

We have some good news for those of you who regularly take vitamins as part of a heathly diet, as it has been claimed that Vitamin B6 can lower the risk of developing lung cancer by as much as 60%.

As reported from CBSNews, a study has been performed by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), and concluded that people with Vitamin B6 inside their blood, are less likely to get cancer.

This is good news for smokers of course, and seemingly solves the riddle why some smokers get lung cancer and others do not. Could a Vitamin B6 tablet really make that much difference to someones health?

However, scientists at the IARC warned that simply taking Vitamin B6 may not help your health condition long term.

What are your thoughts on this? Do any of you take Vitamin B6 at the moment?
