ATLANTA (WAOK) -   A daily multivitamin does not help prevent cardiovascular disease for older men.

A study found no benefits among men over the age of 50 who took a daily multivitamin versus compared to those who took a placebo.

Other researchers recently reported a daily multivitamin cut the risk of cancer in men by as much as eight-percent.

It’s estimated that one-half of adults in the U.S. take at least one dietary supplement per day and multivitamins are the most popular.
