 Naturopathic Medicine: Antioxidants, Diet and Cancer

Block criticizes much of the vitamin C research. She points out that errors in experimental procedure and interpretation may actually underestimate the beneficial effects of vitamin C and other nutrients. It is also important, she says, to understand that these nutrients work together not alone. We shouldn't think about whether it's vitamin C or beta-carotene that fights cancer and other diseases. We need to remember that vitamins and minerals are packaged in fruits, vegetables, and other foods to provide optimal protection in optimal amounts.
