MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Men might not always want to take vitamins, but a new study might change some minds. The study shows taking a daily multivitamin can lower a man’s risk of cancer.

The long-term study followed middle-aged and older men. Those who took a multivitamin daily lowered their overall cancer risk by 8 percent. Researchers say the reduction is small, but significant.

Researchers believe multivitamins may help reduce the risk of cancer because they have a combination of vitamins and minerals similar to eating the right amount of fruits and vegetables.
