My name is Christine Marquette, and I'm a registered and licensed dietitian with Marquette Nutrition and Fitness, and I've been asked: How does vitamin O affect cancer? There really isn't such a vitamin. Vitamin O truly isn't a vitamin. It's a particular product that was marketed by a company back in the nineties. It's...when it was analyzed to see exactly what was in this particular product, it was found it was really just a salt water solution with some germanium in it. So it doesn't really have any significant nutritional properties to it. For that reason, there isn't any particular effect associated between vitamin O and cancer. It doesn't really have an effect on cancer. Again, it isn't a real nutrient. It isn't a vitamin that is actually recognized. It's just a product that was basically made up by a particular manufacturer, and it was sold initially for just benign conditions. It was just sold strictly as a nutritional supplement, but then they started having testimonials and different pseudo-scientists claiming that it could be beneficial for preventing all sorts of types of cancers and various other diseases. Once those statements got out into the public, the FDC got involved basically, had a lawsuit with this particular company, and this company was forced to discontinue advertising vitamin O as any type of supplement that could prevent or cure disease. So at this point, vitamin O basically is not found anymore on the market, and again, it's not a real vitamin. It doesn't really have any effect whatsoever with regard to cancer.
