The wonders of Vitamin B6 never cease.
A new study finds that people with high levels of vitamin B6 may be less likely to develop lung cancer than those with lower levels of the vitamin. This comes from the June 16, 2010, Journal of the American Medical Association. The study, prepared by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), found that Vitamin B6 can reduce the risk of lung cancer by almost 60%.
So how do you get more vitamin B6? Good sources include meats, whole grain products, vegetables, nuts and bananas. Cooking your food can reduce the B6 levels by as much as 50%.
B6 is readily available in stores as a supplement.
