Vitamin B6 may sharply reduce the incidence of colon cancer‏

A large Scottish study has shown that increased intake of dietary and supplemental vitamin B6 is associated with a significant decrease in colon cancers. The investigators found that the higher the level of vitamin B6 intake the lower the risk of colon cancer. Subjects with the highest level of vitamin B6 were about 20% less likely to develop colon cancer than those individuals who had the lowest levels of vitamin B6.
