ORLANDO, Fla. - Scientists in search of cancer-preventing nutrients have found clues that vitamin E may protect against bladder cancer.

Their study, released Sunday, found that people who get lots of this vitamin in their food have only about half as much bladder cancer as those who take in relatively little. While intriguing, though, researchers say much more research is needed before they can recommend more than eating plenty of vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables.
Experts once had high hopes that vitamin E would prove to be an important safeguard against heart attacks. But that idea eventually faded as repeated studies failed to show any protective effect.
