Vitamin E protects against cervical cancer

Vitamin A, Vitamin B and The Risk of Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia

This study evaluated whether vitamin A and E are able to decrease cervical cancer risk.
The four year study included women between the ages of 16 and 40 who had cervical cancer (intraepithelial neoplasia), a precancerous condition of the cervix.
It was found that vitamin E levels were significantly decreased in many cancer patients, compared to healthy controls.
The authors thus suggested a protective effect of vitamin E in cervical cancer.

More details can be found in the study.
