Effects of antioxidant supplements on cancer prevention: meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.

The use of antioxidant supplements may increase an individual's chances of developing bladder cancer.

This study investigated the effect of antioxidant supplements on cancer risk. Researchers conducted a meticulous meta-analysis on data extracted from 31 published studies. They observed that the use of antioxidant supplements had no preventive effect on cancer development. According to this study, subjects on antioxidant supplements were found to have high bladder cancer risk. The findings of this meta-analysis reveal that frequent intake of antioxidant supplements may not exert a protective effect against cancer.
