Cancer: Vitamin E can stop it (in mice, anyway)

A form of vitamin E kills cancer in mice, researchers have found.  Researchers from Arizona University added the chemically-altered vitamin E into mouse food.  The mice that ate the super-chow had a 4.8 times reduction in the number of tumours that spread to the lungs compared with those who were given standard food.

OK, that’s the mice sorted.  Now how about us humans?
