The latest research has found that older women who developed invasive breast cancer while taking multivitamin supplements with minerals had a 30% lower rate of breast cancer mortality than women who did not take supplements, according to an analysis of data from the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI). The finding was published online on October 7 in Breast Cancer Research and Treatment.

“Our data suggest that multivitamins with minerals [MVM] have a protective role for women with breast cancer. Ours is the largest study of multivitamin supplements in postmenopausal breast cancer survivors, so we had a lot of power to uncover these associations,” lead author Sylvia Wassertheil-Smoller, MD, distinguished university professor emerita of epidemiology and population health at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, in Bronx, New York.
