: : My father will be undergoing chemo for Head and Neck Cancer in the next couple of weeks. My mom saw something on the news that said you shouldn't take vitamin C while undergoing chemo. I have not heard about this, but if you have please respond.
: I have heard that you should not take any antioxidents when on radiation therapy as it lessens the effects of the radiation. The same may be true with Vitimin C or E in Chemo. You should check with your pharmacist and see if he/she can help. I always find them very knowledgeable. Also check with the dr. I think this could be important.
I heard on the news in our area on August 2, 2000, that taking antioxidents in large doses(?) can help cancer. Does anyone know more about this happening, and have more details on how this works? How high of a dose of vitamin C,E, or B is considered a high doses. Does this only apply to people who are (as mentioned above) undergoing chemotherapy? Please post any leads to further information on this bulletin board.
