Vitamin Supplement Might Be Causing Cancer Studies Show
(AmericanProsperity.com) – University of Missouri (MU) associate chemistry professor Elena Goun noted that despite the popular belief vitamins are beneficial to people’s health, there is minimal knowledge on how the supplements work. The associate professor used this lack of knowledge as a reason to investigate how vitamins and supplements interacted with the body. Goun discovered a popular vitamin supplement could increase people’s chances of developing cancer.

The MU study uncovered that a variation of vitamin B3, known as nicotinamide riboside (NR), has the potential to increase a person’s chances of developing a type of breast cancer. It also appears to raise risks of brain metastasis, which is when cancer cells spread from one part of the body to the brain. The associate professor explained that once cancer reaches the vital area, no available treatment options can help.
The team used bioluminescent imaging to compare how much NR was present in healthy cells, cancer cells, and T cells, which are a part of the body’s immune system. Goun explained that NR presents itself with light in this technique, adding that a brighter reaction indicates a higher presence of NR. The results showed a relationship between the NR metabolism and cancer growth.
MU’s findings are especially shocking because NR is widely available. It’s also currently given to cancer patients to alleviate the side effects of treatment in human clinical trials.
