The purpose of this study was to consolidate epidemiological evidence for the association between dietary supplements of vitamins and minerals and thyroid cancer development, as well as to contribute to evidence-based dietary recommendations for thyroid cancer primary prevention. We carried out a systematic literature review specifically for dietary supplement and thyroid cancer risk. MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Dissertations and Theses were systematically searched to identify original epidemiological… 
The Association between Selenium and Other Micronutrients and Thyroid Cancer Incidence in the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study
TLDR
This study does not suggest strong evidence for an association between dietary intake of selenium or other micronutrients and thyroid cancer risk, and more studies are needed to clarify the role of seenium and other micronsutrients in thyroid carcinogenesis.

TLDR
Overall, no statistically significant associations were observed between dietary supplementation and overall thyroid cancer risk and the different associations between calcium supplements and risk of papillary thyroid cancer by tumor size warrant further investigation.
Vitamin D and Calcium: A Systematic Review of Health Outcomes (Update).
TLDR
The current report identified one new systematic review published since the original report that addressed whether a dose response relationship exists between dietary and supplemental vitamin D intake and serum 25(OH)D concentrations.
Dietary Magnesium Intake and Risk of Cancer: A Meta-Analysis of Epidemiologic Studies
TLDR
It was showed that higher dietary magnesium intake seems to have a protective effect for cancer, especially colorectal cancer and in females, as well as in females.
Association between nutrient intake and thyroid cancer risk in Korean women
TLDR
It is found that high calcium intake was associated with a reduced risk of thyroid cancer (OR [95% CI] = 0.55 [0.35-0.89]), and a possible protective effect of calcium on thyroid cancer risk was suggested.
Low Vitamin D Status Is Not Associated With Thyroid Cancer Risk
Background: Low vitamin D status has been known to be associated with the increased prevalence and worse prognosis of several cancers. The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between
Low Vitamin D Status Is Not Associated With Thyroid Cancer Risk
TLDR
Serum 25(OH)D levels and the prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency showed no significant differences between benign and malignant thyroid nodules and a negative correlation only with serum PTH levels after adjusting for age, sex, body mass index, and sampling season.
Vitamin D and Thyroid Cancer
TLDR
Preclinical studies evidenced that vitamin D has an effect on differentiation, reduction in tumor burden, and prevention of metastatic growth in thyroid cancer used alone or in combination with anticancer drugs, however, further clinical studies are needed to understand its impact on prognosis of thyroid cancer.
Vitamin D in thyroid disorders.

  • 2015
TLDR
Currently, similarly to other extraskeletal health outcomes, a clear role of vitamin D has not been demonstrated in thyroid disorders and further research is necessary to fully elucidate the importance of this hormone in case of thyroid disease.
Vitamin D, Thyroid Hormones and Cardiovascular Risk: Exploring the Components of This Novel Disease Triangle
TLDR
New mechanistic insights involving vitamin D in the modulation of cardiometabolic disease and thyroid profile are proposed, suggesting a direct effect of vitamin D on Type 2 deiodinase expression causing subsequential peripheral conversion of T4 into T3.

Risk factors for thyroid cancer: an epidemiological review focused on nutritional factors
TLDR
At present, the only recognized measures for reducing TC risk is to avoid ionizing radiation and iodine deficiency, particularly in childhood and young women, and to increase vegetable consumption.
The effect of vitamin E and beta carotene on the incidence of lung cancer and other cancers in male smokers.
TLDR
No reduction in the incidence of lung cancer among male smokers is found after five to eight years of dietary supplementation with alpha-tocopherol or beta carotene, and this trial raises the possibility that these supplements may actually have harmful as well as beneficial effects.
Effect of combined folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 on cancer risk in women: a randomized trial.
TLDR
Combined folic acid, vitamin B(6), anditamin B(12) treatment had no significant effect on overall risk of total invasive cancer or breast cancer among women among women during the folic Acid fortification era.
Dairy food, calcium, and risk of cancer in the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study.
TLDR
Calcium intake is associated with a lower risk of total cancer and cancers of the digestive system, especially colorectal cancer.
An epidemiologic study of thyroid cancer in Hawaii
TLDR
Although this study identified several dietary and non-dietary risk factors for thyroid cancer, it could not fully explain the exceptionally high incidence rates among Filipino women in Hawaii.
Nutrition intervention trials in Linxian, China: supplementation with specific vitamin/mineral combinations, cancer incidence, and disease-specific mortality in the general population.
TLDR
Findings indicate that vitamin and mineral supplementation of the diet of Linxian adults, particularly with the combination of beta carotene, vitamin E, and selenium, may effect a reduction in cancer risk in this population.
The SU.VI.MAX Study: a randomized, placebo-controlled trial of the health effects of antioxidant vitamins and minerals.
TLDR
After 7.5 years, low-dose antioxidant supplementation lowered total cancer incidence and all-cause mortality in men but not in women, suggesting that supplementation may be effective in men only because of their lower baseline status of certain antioxidants, especially of beta carotene.
β-Carotene Supplementation and Incidence of Cancer and Cardiovascular Disease: the Women's Health Study.
TLDR
There was no benefit or harm from beta-carotene supplementation for a limited period on the incidence of cancer and of cardiovascular disease among apparently healthy women.
Beta-carotene supplementation and incidence of cancer and cardiovascular disease: the Women's Health Study.
TLDR
Among apparently healthy women, there was no benefit or harm from beta-carotene supplementation for a limited period on the incidence of cancer and of cardiovascular disease.
Dual Association of beta-carotene with risk of tobacco-related cancers in a cohort of French women.
TLDR
Beta-carotene intake was inversely associated with risk of tobacco-related cancers among nonsmokers with a statistically significant dose-dependent relationship, whereas high beta-carotinine intake was directly associated withrisk among smokers.
