Further media coverage for Dr Mohammad Muneeb Khan, founder of charity Killing Cancer Kindly (KCK), which warns that multivitamins could increase the risk of developing cancer.
There has been further national and international news coverage for author Dr Mohammad Muneeb Khan, founder of British charity Killing Cancer Kindly (KCK).
Through KCK, respected NHS clinical oncologist Dr Khan has warned that multivitamins could increase the risk of developing cancer by as much as 30 per cent and should carry a health warning similar to those found on tobacco products.
In a post on its website, the charity states that taking a daily multivitamin for a period of four consecutive years or more could raise the lifetime risk of developing lung cancer in adulthood by nearly a third.
Supplements bombard the body with huge doses of “wholly unnecessary” nutrients that may enable cancerous cells to grow and multiply, the charity claims.
The “lorry load” of unused vitamins left circulating in the blood stream is said to become ‘superfood’ for the hundreds of potentially cancerous cells that the body produces each day.
By feasting on a diet rich in concentrated micronutrients like “ravenous little Pac-Men”, these abnormal cells grow stronger and proliferate to levels that may eventually overpower the immune system.
Multivitamin supplements could also increase the risk of developing other cancers such as prostate cancer, bowel cancer, and breast cancer, they warn.
The risk is said to be so substantial that KCK is now calling for a change in legislation to force manufacturers of multivitamins to include warning labels on their packaging.
A mandatory label stating that multivitamin tablets “Can increase the risk of cancer” is necessary to protect public health, it warns.
The warnings feature in Dr Khan’s new research book You’ll Wish You Were an Elephant (Killing Cancer Kindly), a guide to preventing cancer in adults.
Over the last week there has been extensive national and international media coverage for Dr Khan, with further news and lifestyle-related platforms covering the story today.
