Wow - "In 2007, researchers from the National Cancer Institute examined 11,000 men who did or didn't take multivitamins. Those who took multivitamins were twice as likely to die from advanced prostate cancer."

Some studies say multivitamins have no effect, some say they potentially increase risk to die from cancer. Now I'm wondering if they increase the risk to get cancer in the first place?
