Dr Oz February 22 2013 Preview
Dr. Oz has been telling his viewers to eat foods with antioxidants since the first episode of his show but new research has come out suggesting antioxidants may not be good for your health. Dr. Oz is going to be investigating the research on his February 22 2013 episode, “The Antioxidant Myth: Are They Harmful To Your Health?”
Dr Oz: Could Antioxidants Cause Cancer?
Could Dr. Oz have been completely wrong when he told his viewers to eat as many antioxidant-rich foods as possible? New studies have shown antioxidants may cause more harm then good and the study even suggests they could be causing cancer.
The study, done by celebrated geneticist James Watson, one of several researchers who discovered DNA, states “in light of the recent data strongly hinting that much of late-stage cancer’s untreatability may arise from its possession of too many antioxidants, the time has come to seriously ask whether antioxidant use much more likely causes than prevents cancer.”
The study also goes on to say people who have taken selenium, vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E on a daily basis showed no obvious effectiveness in preventing certain types of cancer and, in fact, showed those lives to be slightly shortened than others who did not eat as many antioxidants. He even noted in the study that antioxidants could be preventing cancer drugs from destroying cancer cells.
So who is right in this debate? Make sure to tune in to Dr. Oz February 22 2013 to find out whether or not antioxidants are causing cancer. If you miss any of the information from this episode, stop by Recapo tomorrow afternoon for a full recap of the show.
