Antioxidants and chemoprevention‏

Remember the concept of balance. If you have enough antioxidants on board to handle the number of free radicals you are producing, your body (including the DNA nucleus of the cell) are protected. Antioxidants and their supporting nutrients also optimize your body’s natural repair system and natural immune system. So even if you have started down that road to developing a cancer, your body has the best opportunity to either repair or destroy that mutated cell.

Nutritional supplementation is the leading candidate for chemoprevention. Unlike drugs, nutritional supplements are very safe. They can also be taken for a lifetime and are relatively inexpensive. There is going to be a tremendous amount of research using high-quality nutritional supplements for the specific purpose of decreasing your risk of developing all forms of cancer.
