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.
