Male smokers taking 20 milligrams of vitamin B-6 per day for 10 years were three times more likely to go on to develop lung cancer, while male smokers taking 55 micrograms of vitamin B-12 per day for 10 years were around four times more likely to develop the disease.
Could vitamin B supplements protect against lung cancer? Dr. Kourosh Ahmadi with Surrey University says it is highly unlikely very many people are taking the vitamins above the recommended daily allowance.

For this study, Theodore Brasky, PhD, of the OSUCCC - James, and colleagues analyzed data from more than 77,000 patients participants in the VITamins And Lifestyle (VITAL) cohort study, a long-term prospective observational study created to evaluate vitamin and other mineral supplements in relation to cancer risk. Furthermore, some public health experts note it's possible that cancer itself can change the vitamin levels in the blood. Those who smoke and take high-dose B vitamins should consider cutting back to doses closer to the US RDA (i.e., from a multivitamin) or getting their nutrients from diet.
Brasky and colleagues conducted what they described as the first prospective, observational study to examine the effects of long-term, high-dose vitamin B6 and B12 supplement use on lung cancer risk. An average healthy body will flush out any excess, unneeded vitamin B, so taking a higher dose probably doesn't provide much benefit.
