Reduce your risk of skin cancer

A few weeks ago I attended a skin cancer conference on the Gold Coast. A presentation described how just 1 g nicotinamide can reduce the risk of recurrence of non-melanoma skin cancer by 23% compared to placebo in patients with severely sun-damaged skin.

For any of your out there, you may as well start taking nicotinamide if you have early signs of skin cancer including solar keratosis (actinic keratosis) or if you have had SCC (squamous cell carcinoma) in the past.

The product used was Nature’s Own 500 mg nicotinic acid. Pretty cheap at about $11 for 60 tablets from any health food store.
