Clear Link Between Heavy Vitamin B Intake And Lung Cancer

High vitamin B intake increases lung cancer risk among men

One will try to see whether there are similar effects in post-menopausal women.

"We urge consumers to resist the temptation to allow sensational headlines from this new study to alter their use of B vitamins, especially without further understanding of the nature of this study and a conversation with their health care practitioners", Duffy MacKay, senior vice president for scientific and regulatory affairs, said in a statement.

Current male smokers taking the highest levels of vitamin B6 had triple the risk of lung cancer over six years, compared with those who didn't take supplements. Men who took much more vitamin B than the recommended daily dose over a 10-year period had a higher occurrence of lung cancer than others that consumed a normal or lesser dose. This finding of increased risk appeared to be specific to men who were current smokers.

It's also possible that this action from the B vitamins simply hastens the development of an underlying lung tumor already caused by smoking, Brasky says. These levels were more than 11 times the recommended daily amount of B6 and 23 times that of B12.

Editors note: This article has been corrected to reflect that lung cancer risk almost tripled and quadrupled in men who were current smokers and taking B6 and B12 at the highest levels compared to male smokers who did not take B6 or B12 supplements.

Until more research is completed, there is no conclusive link between high doses of vitamin B and lung cancer. The results of this study indicate that men taking vitamin B supplements are at a higher risk of developing lung cancer.

Researchers crunched data from 77,000-plus patients participants in a long-term, prospective observational study called the VITamins And Lifestyle (VITAL) cohort study. The team report their findings in Journal of Clinical Oncology.

The high-dose energy drinks are not quite as concerning as supplements, since you likely would not drink those every day for years the way the men in the study had taken supplements.

The study in the U.S. led by Ohio State University involved 77,000 people aged between 50 and 76.

The link between B vitamins and lung cancer was only evident in those taken from individual supplementation, not those which were included as part of a multivitamin. He responded, "I don't think we were surprised by the direction of the association both because of the context of prior literature as well as the general idea that there are often U-shaped associations between nutrition and disease". "This is certainly a concern worthy of further evaluation".

Prior studies created to assess the association between lung cancer risk and B vitamin intake have yielded inconsistent results.
