I'd be careful of the 'nuts' article, which didn't track them over the whole 26 years - they used a self-reporting questionnaire, relying on the subjects memories of what they ate many years ago. They also didn't report on what men DID die of - maybe they died prematurely of heart disease, after all 50% of PCa men don't die of PCA. Plus they included 'peanuts' in their analysis - nit nuts at all. It's questionable quality research - in a questionable journal. Funny how the Lancet, BMJ and Nature and all the American Journals turned down this article.
On vitamins generally, there is evidence that some vitamin deficiencies can increase the risk of certain cancers. There is not one single peer-reviewed study that has shown one jot or tittle of benefit from taking excessive doses of any vitamin - either in prevention or 'cure'. Not one. High dose vitamin C is pretty harmless, as it's highly soluble, and gets washed out quickly (and it's cheap, so waste is reduced) . It's also great if you're giving up smoking, as it happily takes some nicotine with it. No published evidence of benefit, so you may choose to believe this was suppressed. Placebos never hurt anybody, and I can't think of a safer one than Vit C. Worth noting that vitamin C has long been advocated as a help in colds and flu - again, zero evidence to support it, though many thousand were involved in research (remember the Common Cold Research Centre?). Though vit C deficiency may allow viruses to linger on.
Plus fat soluble vitamins (inc. D as I recall) do have undesirable effects in overdose, not least, orangeness. But they can damage health too. It's well documented over decades.
