I have gotten very cautious about
any vitamins or supplements. Here is a link to an article from the International Journal of Cancer (the Swedish study mentioned in your link)www.iss.it/binary/acid/cont/plasma%20folate.1151078714.pdf
In the abstract: "Increasing plasma levels of folate and vitamin B12 were statistically
significantly associated with increased prostate cancer risk"
After my surgery I met with my internist and among other things discussed vitamins. (His wife, also an M.D., specializes in diet and women's health.) As a result, I now only take a single fish oil capsule and 1,000 iu of vitamin D3. He takes one other supplement, an eye vitamin pill, because he has a family history of macular degeneration. He was not adamant about
avoiding other vitamins, but he said that if you ate a reasonable diet, there was no medical support for additional augmentation.
I have decided that the risk-reward trade-off favors avoiding such things
