Daily multivitamin associated with decreased risk of cancer in men

A recent randaomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial published in JAMA evaluated the effect of long-term daily multivitamin supplmentation and the risk of cancer in 14,641 older men.  During this 14-year study, researchers found that men who took a daily multivitamin had a small decrease in risk for cancer compared to those that had placebo.  Do you have any experience using or recommending food-based multivitamins?
