Vitamins C and E Supplements Strike Out Again

A study of 14,641 older male physicians for an average of 8 years has quashed hopes that supplements of vitamins C and E might reduce the risk of cataracts. The rate of cataracts between those getting vitamin C or E instead of the placebo was almost identical. Researchers had hoped that longer supplementation might be useful, but the study concluded that it is not.

PositiveTip: Eat vitamin E and C rich foods in your diet, but save your money and skip supplements –at least when it comes to preventing cataracts.
