The testicular cancer risk was especially high among men who started using supplements before the age of 25, had multiple supplements and used them for years."If you used at earlier age, you had a higher risk. If you used them longer, you had a higher risk.

The study is the first analytical epidemiological study of the possible link between supplements and testicular cancer, the authors wrote in the journal. The work was inspired by mounting evidence that at least some supplement ingredients may damage the testes. Future large epidemio logic studies and lab experiments would be necessary to establish a definite link between supplements and testicular cancer. The results were detailed in the British Journal of Cancer.
