Episode 79

Selenium and Vitamin E (SELECT) in Prostate Cancer Prevention with Eric Klein, MD

In this episode, we dive deep into the intriguing relationship between vitamin E, Selenium, and the risk of prostate cancer. Taking center stage is the renowned SELECT trial from the early 2000s, which sparked numerous questions about this association. I'm honored to have Dr. Eric Klein, the study's primary author and former chair of urology at Cleveland Clinic, join me to shed light on this topic. Now engaged in groundbreaking genetic testing for various cancers with Grail, Dr. Klein's insights are invaluable.

Together, we delve into the choices made in the study – like using synthetic vitamin E when mixed tocopherols might have been better, or the decision to use Selenium methionine over SEIS yeast. Dr. Klein also shares his enriching experiences at Stanford University's Distinguished Korea Institute, a commendable program tailored for retirees focusing on wellness, community, and purpose. Plus, we journey through the transformation of prostate cancer treatment and understanding from the late 1980s to today.

Please tune in for a captivating conversation with Dr. Eric Klein about vitamin E, Selenium, prostate cancer, and the many intricacies of his storied career. Don't miss out!
