In an animal study appearing in Carcinogenesis (2009;July:30(7)), scientists found that vitamin C may protect against estrogen induced breast tumors. The study was performed on rats bred to easily develop breast tumors. In animals given estradiol, 82% developed breast tumors. Rat who were given a combination of vitamin C and estradiol had 29% fewer tumors over the 240 day course of the study.
