The incidence of endometrial cancer among white women are higher in
comparison of black. According to the statistic, the risk of
endometrial cancer among women is 1 in 7000. Every year, about 40,000
women in US are diagnosed with the disease. Women who carry certain
mutation genes, such as BRCA1 or the BRCA2 are associated to increased
risk of endometrial cancer.
Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, is a water soluble vitamin found
abundantly in green peas, yams, broccoli, asparagus and turnip
greens,Peanuts, sunflower seeds, cashews and hazelnuts, meat, fish
etc., with functions of amino acid, carbohydrate metabolism, brain
health, and liver detoxification, etc.
studies linking vitamin B6 in reduced risk of endometrial cancer have
been inconclusive, but the composition of vitamin B6 and other micro
nutrient have found to be effective in some studies. One-carbon
metabolism in 26 years of follow-up data from the Nurses' Health Study,
do not appear to influence endometrial cancer
incidence but showed protective effect for women with MTHFR 677 TT or
MTHFR 1298 CC genotype(1) and a case of case-control study in Greece,
indicated that intkae of Retinol, nicotinic acid, vitamin B- 6, and riboflavin were inversely associated with the disease(2).
But in a study between 1997 and 2003, 1,204 newly diagnosed endometrial cancer
cases and 1,212 controls recruited among women between the ages of 30
and 69 years in urban Shanghai, China, showed dietary intake of vitamin B6 was not related to risk of endometrial cancer
for women with enzyme 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase
(MTHFR), encoded by the MTHFR gene(3). Due to small size of some
studies, some researchers suggested that large example size and multi
centers studies are necessary to validate the effectiveness of any micro
nutrient in endometrial cancer risk.
altogether, without going into reviews, the composition of vitamin B6
and other micro nutrients may be effective in reduced risk and treatment
of endometrial cancer. Over doses may induced the symptoms
of difficulty coordinating movement, numbness, sensory changes, etc.,
please make sure you follow the guideline of the Institute of Medicine
of the National Academies.
