It has been hypothesized that selenium, vitamin E, and fiber reduce the risk of specific human cancers. Evidence for a role of selenium is based primarily on animal studies, inverse geographic correlations between intake and site-specific cancer incidence, and an inverse association between serum selenium and subsequent risk of cancer. Certain geographic… CONTINUE READING
