Novel Cancer Hypothesis Suggests Antioxidants Are Harmful

So this is just a hypothesis, but if it comes from a Nobel laureate James Watson, PhD, and so I am listening and taking notes!

The paragraph below, from the article, was eye opening to me and such a proof that I am on the right track, choosing to use a food-based Juice Plus for nutritional support and not a traditional multivitamin supplement with limited and potentially off-balance proportions of nutrients. That is why in January issue of Men’s Health Dr. Katz recommends Juice Plus over multi-vitamins. And in this article in Huffington Post, Dr. David Katz offers a link to www.JuicePlus.com as the better whole-food alternative to vitamin supplements. JO mens health

From the “Novel Cancer Hypothesis Suggests Antioxidants Are Harmful” paper:

Nutritional Antioxidants Could Be Harmful

One far-reaching implication of this theory is that antioxidants as nutritional supplements, including beta-carotene, vitamins A, C, and E, and selenium, could be harmful in cancer.

For years, such supplements have been widely hyped for cancer prevention and/or treatment, as has encouragement to eat colorful fruit and berries, which contain antioxidants.

The time has come to seriously ask whether antioxidant use more likely causes than prevents cancer.

However, Dr. Watson warns that recent data strongly hint that much of the untreatability of late-stage cancer might be the result of “its possession of too many antioxidants, [so] the time has come to seriously ask whether antioxidant use more likely causes than prevents cancer.”

Food for thought!
