Brief Answer:
some vitamins are better avoided

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for your query.

The exact role of all vitamins and supplements in cancer, particularly lymphoma(harm or benefit) has not been delineated properly.

However, based on loose evidence, some are better avoided. For example, vitamin C, vitamin E, folic acid and selenium.


Hope this helps.
Regards
