According to a recent study, it appears that taking a multivitamin daily could reduce the risk of cancer. A large clinical trial of nearly 15K older male physicians followed for more than a decade found that those taking a daily multivitamin experienced 8% fewer cancers than the subjects taking dummy pills. Researchers say that it's a statistically significant reduction, and the findings will be presented today at an American Association for Cancer Research conference. Vitamin Shoppe (VSI +1%) and GNC Holdings (GNC +0.3%) both move higher on the report.
