The Final Recommendation Statement: Vitamin, Mineral, and Multivitamin Supplementation to Prevent Cardiovascular Disease and Cancer Can be Found Here!

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has released a final recommendation statement on vitamin, mineral, and multivitamin supplementation to prevent cardiovascular disease (CVD) and cancer. For most vitamins and mineral supplements, more research is needed to make a recommendation for or against taking them to prevent CVD and cancer. The Task Force recommends against taking vitamin E and beta-carotene for this purpose. To view the recommendation, the evidence on which it is based, and a summary for clinicians, click here. The final recommendation statement can also be found in the June 21 online issue of JAMA.
