Antioxidants that is generally accepted as helpful to health, can provoke the growth of cancer cells. This sensational opening the American scientists after a number of experiments.
Scientists from the United States in the course of the experiments concluded that the use of antioxidants by patients with cancer of the skin, significantly accelerates the development of the disease, reports The Daily Mail. "The idea that antioxidants are useful so entrenched in the minds that there was even a clinical trial in which cancer patients people were given antioxidants. Some of these studies were terminated because patients were dying faster," explains a scientific discovery, head of research Sean Morrison.
Studying the influence of these drugs on the body patients with melanoma, scientists have come to the conclusion that antioxidants significantly accelerate the growth of tumor cells, causing metastasis. Accordingly, the metastatic spread of the disease in all the organs of the inhabitant of our planet, leading him to inevitable death.
It turns out the tumor cells prone to die are traditionally the result of oxidation. Antioxidants, on the contrary, slow the oxidative process, therefore, cancer cells begin to multiply more actively.
Despite the fact that the findings of research workers require additional revisions, they do not recommend a cancer patient to eat foods that are natural oxidants. With all of this, on healthy people on the planet these conclusions do not apply. Ie, if a person has no tumors, the antioxidants will be useful to him.
