In this study, the relationship between the intake of micronutrients during pregnancy and the risk of the occurrence of cerebellar tumors (medulloblastoma) or nervous tissue tumors (neuroectodermal tumors) were examined. Over a period of six years 315 patients with tumors and 315 control cases were examined. The study results confirmed the protective effect of vitamin C and other micronutrients in reducing the risk of brain tumors in infants. Further details can be found in the study.
