Breast cancer: About Iodine, selenium and the risk of breast cancer

studies show that a good supply of iodine may protect against breast cancer. Interestingly) women from regions with good Iodine and selenium supply (e.g. Japan) have a lower risk of breast cancer than women from regions where the iodine supply is bad, and the selenium supply (e.g. USA) and the women from regions in which the supply of both micronutrients is insufficient (e.g. in the North of Europe.

scientists determined the extent to which the supply of iodine in connection with the risk of breast cancer and the selenium supply is modified. For their analysis, the scientists used data from the Malmö Diet and Cancer study, in which Serum iodine supply prädiagnostisch was determined. In addition to 1 159 breast cancer cases, analysis 1 included 136 women without cancer who served as a control.

combination of a good supply of Iodine and selenium could prevent breast cancer

protect, There was no indication of a General correlation between iodine supply and the risk of breast cancer. Women with high levels of selenium above the Median), values (as a better supply of iodine, however, in a context with a lower risk of breast cancer.

This study events show that women who have a good supply of Iodine and selenium, may have a lower risk of breast cancer. A good supply of iodine alone, however, offered no protection against breast cancer.
