    Don’t believe it until the study has been replicated.

    Cancer cells MUST have iron to multiply and grow. Rule number #1 in cancer patients taking multivitamins that are not anemic is to take senior multivitamins (They don’t have iron) instead. Women that have gone through menopause don’t need supplemental iron. Most doctors never tell their cancer patients not to supplement their iron or take regular multivitamins with iron. The likely cause of the increase in cancer is not antioxidants, but rather iron in their vitamins and or several MRNA Covid vaccinations and booster shots that severely weaken most folk’s immune systems.

      Inappropriate and tacky. Must you sow seeds if discontent by politicizing everything.

    Just read this article, what I hear: Stop eating oranges, oysters and no more cod-liver.

    Think this site should be re-named, “Cherry Picker Finds.”

    This is a complex issue that will not be resolved by retreating generalized views. The evidence is decent that the same antioxidants for which there is abundant evidence of benefit might also confer harm once certain kinds of tumors are established. It is already well known that antioxidants can reduce the effective of certain crude chemotherapies.

    Today, the evidence favoring supplemental antioxidants is greater than the contrary evidence, but that could change.

    Given what we know today, one must place their bets and remain vigilant. My personal bet is on the pro side because of the demonstrated benefits of antioxidants, polyphenols, etc., derived first from abundant consumption of vegetables, fruits, legumes, healthy fats and, second, from data driven supplementation. Everyone’s decision should be personal.
