A study in Finland in 1998 suggested that vitamin E pills reduced the risk of prostate cancer in a group of male smokers.

A more recent study reported that selenium or vitamin E, used alone or in combination, did not prevent prostate cancer in a population of relatively healthy men ( JAMA , April 2009).
