Study: Smokers believe vitamins will reduce cancer risk

August 5, 2011

Researchers have learned that some smokers believe the vitamins will reduce their risk of cancer. As a result, taking vitamins inspires many of them to smoke cigarettes more often.

The author of the study suggests reminding health-conscious smokers that multivitamins don't prevent cancer to help them control their smoking or even convince them to quit.

The study appears in the online journal Addiction.
