Selenium supplements associated with lower ovarian cancer risk among African Americans
April 21 2017. The April 2017 issue of the Journal of Nutrition reported the outcome of a case-control study of African American women which found a lower risk of ovarian cancer among those who supplemented with selenium, a mineral that has an antioxidant property. African American women have an increased risk of mortality from ovarian cancer, and studies suggest that they may have higher levels of oxidative stress and a lower intake of antioxidants than women from other groups.
The current investigation included 406 women with ovarian cancer age-matched with 632 control subjects recruited from the African American Cancer Epidemiology Study, which enrolled women at 11 U.S. sites. Self-administered questionnaires collected data concerning the intake of food, beverage and antioxidant dietary supplement intake.
