Black men over the age of 50 who take vitamin E may have a higher risk for prostrate cancer, according to a new study.

Scientists report that the risk of prostate cancer in healthy men can potentially increase even after they stop taking the supplements.

In 2008, after the men had been taking their pills for about 5½ years, researchers told them to stop, a year earlier than planned. An interim analysis had shown that vitamin E wasn’t reducing prostate cancer risk and might raise it, although that observation could have been attributed to chance.
