Studies have found a strong association between use of multivitamins and prostate cancer in men. However, the precise link has not been established, I would still advise that you refrain from using a multi vitamin complex especially one that does not mention the complete ingredients on the pack.

Hope this helps.

this complex has zinc 225 mg.. that was I was concerned about. Is there a vitimen that I can take that will help my health

According to new studies and research, you should only take vitamins if you are deficient in vitamins. Stacking up vitamins that are already present in the body and its reserves is not beneficial in fact, it can cause problems like kidney stones and liver problems.
