Research corroborates: a wholesome diet is more healing than taking isolated supplements

Research corroborates that eating nutrients as part of a wholesome diet and/or within a whole food is more health-promoting and cancer-fighting than taking the respective supplements in isolation. This is due to the synergistic effect various food nutrients display in the human body. See for instance


Quotes: "’Our findings strongly suggest that risks of poor dietary habits cannot be reversed simply by taking a pill... We shouldn't expect easy solutions to complex problems. We must focus more on choosing a variety of healthy foods, exercising and watching our weight.’

...The researchers also found that restricting the amount of food given to the rats cut their risk of developing prostate cancer — regardless of which diet they were on... Separate research has shown that higher levels of lycopene in the blood is linked to a lower risk of prostate cancer." See Nutrition.

Vitamin cocktail cuts cancer deaths

Supplement had a dramatic effect

An extensive study has revealed that a specific mega-dose (antioxidant) supplement group can dramatically reduce cancer risk. A total of 13,000 men and women took part in the seven year study, which found that regular use of a particular supplement group produced a 31% reduction in the risk of all cancers in men taking the antioxidants.

The supplement group is: 6mg of beta-carotene, 120mg of vitamin C, 90mg of vitamin E, 100 micrograms of selenium, and 20 milligrams of zinc.

The findings “completely support recommendations for following a healthy diet, particularly one rich in fruit and vegetables which are major dietary sources of antioxidant vitamins and minerals, for all ages in life and for both sexes." The “scientists agreed that vitamins and minerals were better obtained from fruit and vegetables. They wrote:

'There is reason to believe that the effect would be less than that of dietary sources of antioxidants, particularly fruit and vegetables, which provide other protective substances.'"
